After learning that President Joe Biden had declined the traditional Super Bowl Sunday interview offered by CBS News, former President Donald Trump announced that he would be happy to step in and give an interview in Biden’s place.

Trump shared a post on Truth Social, promising “RATINGS GOLD” if the network would consider giving him the interview slot.

“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!'”

The news that Biden planned to skip the traditional game-day interview — for the second year in a row — came just a few days prior, and a number of critics questioned the wisdom of Biden turning down such a large audience at the beginning of an election year.

The interview was expected to last around 15 minutes — less than one-third of which would air during CBS’ pre-game coverage.

“This is an admission by his handlers that Joe Biden can’t sit down for a softball interview for a football game,” conservative communications strategist Steve Guest commented.

“The country’s on fire! Everyone, down to the basement! ‘White House turns down CBS interview request for a Super Bowl interview with President Biden,'” pundit Tammy Bruce added.

 

Former President Trump was not alone in his offer, however. Biden challenger Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN) also volunteered to take the Super Bowl interview in the president’s place, sharing in a post on X: “I’m happy to stand-in for President Biden and do the Super Bowl interview. I also hold press conferences. I debate. I face voters. I face the press. And I face the future.”
