This coming Sunday the nation will be glued to their television sets for the 2024 Super Bowl, featuring the Grammy “Album of the Year Winner,” Taylor Swift. It will be exhilarating to see how the pop icon/CIA operative manages to lead her “Deep State” Kansas City Chiefs to victory over the curiously MAGA approved San Francisco 49ers of Commie-fornia.
Among the annual Super Bowl traditions is one that has been in effect for less than twenty years. So it is something less than a timeless institution. It’s the pre-game interview of the President of the United States. These interviews have typically been more entertaining than newsworthy. While they can potentially draw a large audience, the viewers are often more interested in beers and barbeque than political banter.
This year President Biden has declined to participate in the program. He is busy campaigning for reelection against Donald Trump and the MAGA Cult that is threatening to do away with democracy. And naturally, Trump had something idiotic to say about Biden’s decision to put the America first. On his failing social media scam, Truth Social, Trump whined that…
“Crooked Joe Biden has just announced that he will not be doing the big Super Bowl Interview. A great decision, he can’t put two sentences together. I WOULD BE HAPPY TO REPLACE HIM – would be ‘RATINGS GOLD!'”
It’s peculiar that Trump continues to use the infantile nickname “Crooked Joe” when he is the one with 91 felony counts pending and has already been found liable by a jury for defamation and rape. It’s Trump who will be in and out of courtrooms for the remainder of this election year, defending himself against criminal charges ranging from financial fraud, to inciting a violent insurrection, to stealing (and perhaps disseminating) classified documents, to undermining democracy. All of which he dismisses as “election interference.”
More to the point, Trump is complaining that Biden isn’t doing the interview because he supposedly “can’t put two sentences together.” Which is another example of Trump projecting his own deficiencies unto his opponent. Furthermore, Trump is flagrantly lying about being “happy to replace” Biden in the interview. Trump doesn’t do interviews with anyone outside of his safe harbor of MAGA hacks who lob him the softest of balls.
It’s also interesting to note that Trump has apparently forgotten that he himself chickened out of a Super Bowl interview in 2018. He retreated to his bunker because the interviewer was Lester Holt of NBC News. And he knew that his own mental infirmity would result in further humiliation. What’s more, two of the three Super Bowl interviews that he did show up for were moderated by Fox News Trump-fluffers, Bill O’Reilly (2017) and Sean Hannity (2020).
Trump’s attendance and/or avoidance of these interviews was not exactly a demonstration of the courage he tries to flaunt. It’s more of an affirmation of the cowardice he displayed by claiming five deferments from the Vietnam draft for alleged bone spurs.
Trump thinks he can project his mental impairment and spinelessness unto Biden for opting out of this interview. But, as usual, he is just shining a spotlight unto his own failings and reminding everyone that he is not only dishonest, but a craven coward with serious cognitive defects of his own. he is utterly unfit to serve in any office, and he seems intent on proving it.
