Far left NBC was looking for a Super Bowl interview from the president. According to reports, President Trump tells NBC to take a hike.
Seems like another good move by President Trump.
What do you think the NBC talking points would have been? The booming economy? The record unemployment numbers? Not likely. Probably would have been many questions about Russia.
President Trump has decided not to participate in a Super Bowl Sunday interview this weekend.
“He is not doing a Super Bowl interview,” a White House official told CNN on condition of anonymity on Wednesday.
Sources at NBC affirmed that their interview requests have been turned down. But Trump still has an open invitation, should he choose to change his mind, the sources said.
NBC is televising the Super Bowl on Sunday. It is traditionally the highest-rated event of the year by far.
A pre-Super Bowl interview with the president has become an American tradition in the past decade.
When Fox televised the Super Bowl last year, Trump sat down with Fox’s Bill O’Reilly at the White House.
Last year President Trump took an interview with Bill O'Reilly before the Super Bowl.

Many Americans have tuned out the NFL and will be happy to here that President Trump declined their interview request. The anti-Trump, anti-American NFL has alienated much of their fan base with the anthem protests.
