Obama Knew Who Was Going To Win The Super Bowl... Last Week

Nick Visser | February 8, 2016 | Politics

The thing is, Obama taped the message last week. In the clip, Colbert tossed a football around the planet to soldiers in Afghanistan, astronaut Scott Kelly, Chewbacca and finally, the president.

Take a look at the goofy clip above, including a reprimand from the first lady for throwing a football in the White House. Also on...
