Trump Offers To Sit In For Biden's Declined Super Bowl Interview

Former President Donald Trump offered to sit in for President Biden during CBS News's pre-game Super Bowl interview this Sunday.

Earlier this week, Biden declined the tradition of a pre-game interview for the annual NFL game. Biden aids cited the interview would not take place during peak viewing hours for the Super Bowl and suggested Americans were fatigued by politics amid the current election cycle.

This is the second consecutive pre-game Super Bowl interview Biden has declined.

Trump offered to sit in for Biden in a Monday Truth Social post.

"Crooked Joe Biden has just announced that he will not be doing the big Super Bowl interview," Trump wrote. "A great decision, he can't put two sentences together."

"I WOULD BE HAPPY TO REPLACE HIM," Trump suggested. "Would be 'RATINGS GOLD!'"

Trump's post followed a suggestion from Fox News contributor Joe Concha who originally suggested the former president sit in in for President Biden during a Monday appearance on Fox & Friends First.

“This is by far the lamest, most intelligence-insulting excuse you will ever hear as far as why the president is hiding from this interview for the second consecutive year,” Concha said. “The interview is like hours before the game, so it’s not about that. So please stop. It’s truly telling that Joe Biden’s handlers are simply petrified of putting him in front of a camera without a teleprompter or scripted remarks to guide him.”


Concha noted the Super Bowl was the most watched sporting event of the year.

"When you’re a president, who is polling lower than any in polling history, three years into the job, you would think he would be out there trying to sell his message on why he and his administration deserve four more years,” Concha added. "Joe Biden is a coward."

The Fox News contributor said Biden declining the interview gave the appearance that the president was "hiding somewhere" in his home state of Delaware.

"Donald Trump should take this opportunity and say, 'Hey, I'll take that spot. I'll do this interview instead,'" Concha continued.

The pre-game Super Bowl interview is a tradition that began in 2004 under former President George W. Bush, though did not become an annual occurrence until former President Barack Obama's 2009 interview prior to the Super Bowl.

In 2018, Trump notably declined to participate in the pre-game Super Bowl interview.
