BACK TO THE BASEMENT! Joe Turns Down Traditional Super Bowl Interview, Blames Fox

The White House confirmed Friday that President Biden will not sit-down with the network for a traditional pre-Super Bowl interview on Sunday; bucking years of tradition going back to George W. Bush.

“The President was looking forward to an interview with Fox Soul to discuss the Super Bowl, the State of the Union, and critical issues impacting the everyday lives of Black Americans,” press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre tweeted Friday. “We’ve been informed that Fox Corp has asked for the interview to be cancelled.”

“The president is going to be out on the road, taking his message to the road. Every year, traditionally, the network covering the Super Bowl gets an interview with the president of the United States,” said Bret Baier of Fox News. “We have formally asked for that interview, but we have not received an answer yet, whether they are going to officially do it or not … we’re running out of days.”
