“Ratings gold” – Trump offers to replace Biden for Super Bowl interview

Published

on

Former President Donald Trump has offered to step in and replace President Joe Biden for a Super Bowl interview slot after Biden declined the opportunity to participate in the annual tradition.

Trump’s proposal came shortly after Fox News suggested that he fill the void left by Biden’s absence.

In a post on his conservative social media platform, Truth Social, Trump sarcastically applauded Biden’s decision to skip the Super Bowl interview with CBS, citing the President’s alleged difficulty in stringing together coherent sentences.

He then expressed his own willingness to take Biden’s place, predicting that such a move would result in “RATINGS GOLD!”

Trump’s eagerness to participate in a Super Bowl interview contrasts with his past actions. In 2018, he declined a similar offer before the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the New England Patriots 41-33.

However, he later embraced the tradition, conducting Super Bowl interviews, including during the 2020 election season when he faced Joe Biden as his opponent.

Low approval

Earlier on Monday, during a segment on “Fox & Friends,” host Carley Shimkus discussed why President Biden might have chosen to forego the Super Bowl interview, especially considering his low approval ratings leading up to the 2024 election.

Joe Concha, a contributor to the show, criticized the decision, describing it as a weak and unconvincing excuse.

Concha suggested that Biden’s avoidance of the interview was not due to the timing but rather reflected the reluctance of his handlers to expose him to an unscripted camera appearance.

Concha emphasized the significance of the Super Bowl, both the game itself and the pregame coverage, as one of the most-watched events of the year.

Given President Biden’s historically low polling numbers three years into his term, Concha argued that he should seize the opportunity to communicate his message and make a case for reelection.

The Super Bowl interview has traditionally been an occasion for sitting presidents to engage with the American public and discuss various topics, including politics, sports, and culture. President Biden’s decision to abstain from this event has prompted both political discussion and offers from his predecessor, Donald Trump, to take his place.

White House national security spokesperson John Kirby said the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security were looking into an AT&T outage that lasted for several hours and impacted thousands of customers across the United States.

AT&T said the hour-long outage to its U.S. cellphone network appeared to be the result of a technical error, not a malicious attack and that the Federal Communications Commission was in touch with the company.

Extremism top concern for U.S. voters ahead of election

Published

on

Worries over political extremism and threats to democracy have surged to the forefront as the primary concern for U.S. voters, setting the stage for a high-stakes showdown in the upcoming November election.

The three-day Reuters Ipsos poll, which concluded on Sunday, found that 21% of respondents identified “political extremism or threats to democracy” as the nation’s most pressing issue, narrowly edging out concerns about the economy and immigration.

President Joe Biden appears to hold a slight advantage over his predecessor, Donald Trump, in addressing this issue, with 34% of respondents believing Biden has a better approach compared to 31% for Trump.

The findings underscore the deeply polarized political landscape in America, with Democrats prioritizing extremism as the top issue, while Republicans overwhelmingly focus on immigration.

Independent voters

The poll also highlights the pivotal role of independent voters, with nearly a third citing extremism as their primary concern, followed closely by immigration and the economy.

This suggests that the handling of extremism could significantly influence voter behavior in the upcoming election.

The rise of extremism as a top concern comes amid ongoing political turmoil, with Trump continuing to challenge the legitimacy of U.S. institutions and perpetuate false claims of election fraud.

His rhetoric has not only fueled division but also incited violence, as seen in the January 6, 2021, assault on the U.S. Capitol.
