There were a lot of similarities between this year’s Super Bowl and last year’s election. From Duane Norman at Free Market Shooter, fashooter.com:
Hillary Clinton has emerged from hibernation and found her way back into the news, and she made sure to start off by letting the world know that she took “personal responsibility” for her historic loss to President Trump:
“I take absolute personal responsibility. I was the candidate, I was the person who was on the ballot. I am very aware of the challenges, the problems, the shortfalls that we had,” Clinton said.
But, by now everyone knows that the claim of “personal responsibility” was just a token statement for the blame game that came afterwards. So, for the first time ever, Free Market Shooter will do a “Monday Morning Quarterback” analysis of Hillary Clinton’s statements, analogizing them to a previously established comparison – the New England Patriots’ comeback win over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI.
(Note: this comparison is particularly apt, as Atlanta Falcons owner, Arthur Blank,donated to and supported Hillary Clinton, and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, coach Bill Belichick, and quarterback Tom Brady are all known Trump supporters. In fact, Blank made sure to rib Kraft at the Super Bowl media day for that reason, as seen below.)

Without further ado, let’s start with a comparison that Sean Spicer already made publicly:
“If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president.”
And if the Super Bowl ended in the 4th quarter at the two-minute warning, the Falcons would have won. But the Falcons let the Patriots tie the game up and take it to overtime, and the election was held on November 8th. What happened to “playing until the last whistle”, Hillary?
Speaking of “whistles”, who knew Jim Comey was the election referee?
