Hillary Clinton Is Ready for Some Thanksgiving Football

Hillary Clinton sheds some light on how she and her husband Bill watch football.


Thanksgiving is Thursday, giving Americans a chance to gather with family and friends to break bread and start the holiday season. And with three NFL games on the slate, it’s also a chance to watch football, another Thanksgiving tradition. When it comes to the latter, Hillary and Bill Clinton are probably just like you and I.

On Wednesday, the 2016 Democratic frontrunner and former Secretary of State posted a video on Twitter. In it, she’s asked by an unseen questioner, “What’s it like to watch football with your family?”

Apparently, Bill, the former governor of Arkansas and therefore a fan of the University of Arkansas, is the more vocal of the two. Clinton recounted a recent Saturday afternoon in Iowa in which the former president could be heard yelling at the TV screen loud enough to be heard in the halls of the hotel.

Clinton, for her part, says she’s much less vocal than her husband, but isn’t above shouting when something “amazing” happens “like an incredible over-the-shoulder flying catch.” But she assures viewers she is “nothing like her husband.”

Check out the full video below.

This isn’t the first time Clinton has tried to relate to everyday Americans through sports. In 2008, while on the campaign trail, she went on the “Ellen” show to display her bowling skills. It didn’t go well.
