On Message: When Asked For Her Super Bowl Prediction, Clinton Says She’s Going to Flint


When Hillary Clinton was asked Sunday who she was rooting for in the Super Bowl, she stayed on message and said she was going to Flint, Michigan.

“All right. What do you got in the Super Bowl?” Meet the Press host Chuck Todd said.

“I don’t have anybody right now,” Clinton said.

“You don’t have anybody?” Todd said.

Rather than engaging in the great American pastime that is football, Clinton said that she was worried about Flint.

“I’m going to Flint, Michigan,” Clinton said. “I’m worrying about the kids in Flint, Michigan, right now, trying to figure out what we’re going to do to make sure they’re not damaged irreparably by this lead poisoning.”

For Clinton’s edification, the choices are the Carolina Panthers or the Denver Broncos. In November, Clinton said that her husband is a “fanatic” about football, though she does not seem to share his passion.

“Literally in the halls of the hotel you could hear my husband yelling at the T.V. screen. … He really gets into it,” Clinton said. “I am mostly a quiet watcher.”

She said that if something surprises her while she is watching, however, she yells “a little.”

“If something happens that I think is amazing, like, you know, an incredible over the shoulder flying catch, or something that I think is unfair, I will yell a little,” Clinton said.

Clinton has been known to stay on message in the past without breaking a sweat, prompting questions about whether she is even a human being.

“You guys are the first to realize that I’m really not even a human being,” Clinton told BuzzFeed in October. “I was constructed in a garage in Palo Alto a very long time ago.”
