Stephen Colbert Reveals Theory on Why Trump Is Skipping Super Bowl Interview

After a decade of pre–Super Bowl interviews with the president — a tradition started by George W. Bush — President Trump has declined NBC’s invitation to appear before Sunday’s big game.

Or, maybe he doesn’t want to give an interview to one of his least-favorite networks?
