Whoa: Trump made BOLD prediction about Super Bowl last night

Remember back in the ancient history of the presidential campaign? When we had to listen to Hillary Clinton on a daily basis? And the media told us there was NO path for victory for Donald Trump? But Trump kept promising we’d be winning so much we’d get tired of winning?

Well, looks like he was right again – and if we wait a day or two, we’ll probably hear from the liberal media that somehow Trump (and Putin maybe?) was behind the surprising overtime win by the New England Patriots in last night’s Super Bowl.

Earlier in the day, hours before kick-off, Fox aired an interview with the president and Bill O’Reilly.

O’Reilly pressed Trump to predict the outcome of the game and the final score.

Well doggone if President Trump didn’t almost perfectly predict the outcome.

Per Grabien, During his pre-Super Bowl interview with Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly, Trump predicted the New England Patriots would win.

“By how many points?” O’Reilly asked.
“By eight points,” Trump replied.
The final outcome — which for the first Super Bowl was decided in a sudden death overtime — was Patriots 34, the Falcons 28.

Here’s the full exchange:
O’REILLY: “Fox Sports is demanding that I ask you to make a prediction.”
TRUMP: “Well I hate to make predictions.”
O’REILLY: “But you have to.”
TRUMP: “But I hate to do it. But I’ll say –”
O’REILY: “– Because I won’t leave unless you do.”
TRUMP: “I’ll say — I don’t know, what are the odds? I guess it’s pretty even, right? Two great teams.”
O’REILLY: “Yeah.”
TRUMP: “I’ll say the Patriots will win.”
O’REILLY: “By how many points?”
TRUMP: “By eight points.”
O’REILLY: “That’s a good presidential prediction.”
TRUMP: “I shouldn’t be doing those things but that’s OK.”
O’REILLY: “And you don’t need any data.”
TRUMP: “I need no data.”

Hey, if you’re right, you’re right.

By the way, looks like pollsters are just as wrong in sports as they are in politics. Check out this little probability chart that looks remarkably like the results on Election Night.
