President Barack Obama sat down with Savannah Guthrie on Super Bowl Sunday and discussed what everyone is waiting to hear — his predictions on the outcome of the Super Bowl.
President Barack Obama is staying neutral on the Super Bowl battle between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks. He said in an interview on Feb. 1 with Savannah Guthrie that, “it’s going to be close.”
President Barack Obama Refuses To Take Sides
Now we know that there’s at least one person out there not betting on the big game. President Obama refuses to take sides as far as choosing a favorite team for the Super Bowl.
The commander-in-chief refused to divulge who his winning prediction is, “Since my Bears are not in it, I think it’s only wise for me not to choose a team because then I just alienate one big city, but I will say it’s going to be close and the question I have is whether Seattle’s secondary is healthy enough.”
Obama went on to say, “That’s the heart and soul of their team and they’ve got three guys back there who are hurt. I don’t know how that’s going to affect the game.”
When he was asked about the “deflategate” controversy he didn’t hesitate to give his opinion.
“Here’s what I know. The Patriots were going to beat the Colts regardless of what the footballs looked like.”
The President Won’t Take Sides
Barack Obama told congressional Democrats in Philadelphia that he won’t pick a team in the Super Bowl. Maybe it’s for the best that he is trying to stay neutral.
“I am not taking sides on that one,” he said. “I want to just remind the New England and Pacific Northwest contingents, this is the City of Brotherly Love.”
The president continued to say during his speech, “So regardless of what you think about Sunday, I want you all to keep it clean.”
Hopefully, both teams and their fans will “keep it clean” and enjoy a fun-filled day of football!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers, should the president pick his favorite or play it safe by staying out of it? Let us know!
