DATELINE: White House Photo Op
Pardon the President for turning his head and coughing up a Super Bowl prediction.
It’s the closest President Barack Obama has come to endorsing Donald Trump as the next president.
Mr. Obama gave an interview this week in which he predicted that Tom Brady and the Patriots would win the Super Bowl in, what he considers, a somewhat deteriorating quality NFL. He thinks with all the weak teams, it looks like a Republican primary.
The President believes it will be a return to the glorious past: Seattle versus New England. We are still uncertain if this makes American great again.
Mr. Brady skipped out on the last Patriot team meeting with the President at the White House for family business. Some thought the business likely was related to the Trump family. Years before he married Giselle, Trump tried to interest Tom in his daughter Ivanka.
Tom found a woman prepared to live La Dolce Vita with the football hero in eight-and-a-half Fellini ways. Enough on that score.
Now, Obama is well aware that the next winner of the Super Bowl will go to the White House to meet a different president. In all likelihood, Tom will be in attendance for this one—if Trump wins.
We might suggest that, if Tom doesn’t win the next Super Bowl, that the NFL is rigged. We are certain Trump would concur.
Of course, all’s well that ends well—in Mr. Trump’s words—“if I win.”
