The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country.

OK, Trump was going to win anyways, but odd that Hillary "conceded" BEFORE Trump hit 270.

Now wait a minute, brother. Just yesterday everyone was saying we had all of this proof that it was being rigged for Hillary. Now all of a sudden it was rigged for Trump? Huh

The Leftwing Media Is Having a Meltdown Over Trump's Victory--Here Are Their Headlines to Prove It

Nearly all the pundits and pollsters got this election wrong. A Donald Trump victory was seen as a long shot even reportedly to the Trump campaign itself. But now that President Trump has become a reality, the leftwing media is in full panic mode.

Not that I agree with Trump on anything, but not everything is a conspiracy, half the country did not vote so Trump won.

I am more of the Scott Johnson, Greg Miller viewpoint, not everything is a conspiracy. Hillary did not put much effort in campaigning and it cost her the presidency.

I remember in August of last year (2015), my mom had CNN on one Friday night, and they spent almost the entire evening of coverage of Trump making a speech in Alabama. I was wondering, "The primary race hasn't even started much, and they're giving him THIS much coverage from a small state?".

I had a feeling they had big plans for him.

No not really - I saw CNN's coverage of the election, and you could tell they were reading from a script.

Trump wants to build a "wall" in front of Mexico, but somehow performs BETTER with Latinos?

Trump is an "anti-establishment outsider"? But never mind the fact he wants Rudy Guilliani as Homeland Security chief, and Newt Gingrich in his cabinet too.

And again, they have electronic voting machines, but it takes them HOURS to get even some of the results in?

Controversy creates cash. These news stations made a lot of money by talking about Trump, which is why they are glad that he was elected; the love of money is the root of all evil. Trump has wanted to run for President since the 80s, he finally put serious effort in and he won. Not that I agree with him on much, but the fact is that he's won and everybody of importance in this country admitted it. You should be glad that he's won since it appears war with Russia is off, for at least a few years, more time to evangelize.

At the Rally I went to, they had two Prayers occur, neither were inter-faith as both acknowledged the deity and Lordship of Jesus Christ, and one of the speakers referenced the KJV, Trump might not be Christian but some of his advisers are.

Preliminary list shows potential Trump Cabinet picks
11/9/16

Donald Trump's transition team has prepared a preliminary list of potential Cabinet members for his upcoming administration.

The list obtained by BuzzFeed News reveals a number of familiar faces including Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich and others being weighed for multiple positions.

In total, the list includes 41 names and covers 14 different departments. A source told BuzzFeed that the list is not final, and will likely be changed in the future.

Attorney general picks include Chris Christie, Jeff Sessions and Rudy Giuliani.

Newt Gingrich, John Bolton and Bob Corker are listed as potential picks for the secretary of State.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus is the only name listed under chief of staff, while Sessions is also the only one being considered for director of Office of Management and Budget.

Potential secretary of Commerce picks include Christie and Huckabee, while Carson is under consideration to be secretary of Education.

Christie is also being weighed for secretary of Homeland Security, and Carson, Gingrich and Florida Gov. Rick Scott are potential picks for secretary of Health and Human Services.

**Gingrich supports the Obamacare mandate, FYI.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin also makes a surprise appearance on the shortlist, mentioned as one of seven potential candidates to become the Secretary of the Interior.

Trump makes first White House visit as president-elect
11/10/16

President-elect Donald Trump swooped into Washington, D.C., on Thursday for his first-ever visit to the White House since his historic election, huddling with President Barack Obama in the Oval Office for more than an hour and a half. The brash entrepreneur then headed off for meetings with leaders of the Republican majorities in Congress.

Obama and Trump struck a conciliatory pose in brief remarks after the meeting, their first face-to-face conversation after years of doing long-distance political battle. They presented a united, bipartisan front by refusing to answer questions from reporters.

Obama said he and Trump had an “excellent” and “wide-ranging” conversation about domestic policy and world affairs, and he urged Americans to rally behind their soon-to-be leader at a time when angry protesters have taken to the streets in several cities to reject Trump’s election.

“I believe that it is important for all of us — regardless of party, and regardless of political preferences — to now come together, work together and deal with the many challenges that we face,” Obama said. “I want to emphasize to you, Mr. President-elect, that we now are going to want to do everything we can to help you succeed. Because if you succeed, then the country succeeds.”

Trump, sitting in the office he will soon redecorate, described the discussion as an opportunity for the two men to get to know each other and professed to have “great respect” for the sitting president. For years, Trump had spearheaded the “birther” movement seeking to discredit Obama’s legitimacy as president.

“We discussed a lot of different situations, some wonderful and some difficulties. I very much look forward to dealing with the president in the future, including counsel,” Trump said. “Mr. President, it was a great honor meeting with you. And I look forward to meeting with you many, many more times in the future.”

Meanwhile, first lady Michelle Obama met in private with Melania Trump, who inherits the East Room come Jan. 20th. And White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough led senior Trump advisers, including son-in-law Jared Kushner, around the grounds of the presidential mansion, and other top Obama aides met with their counterparts or potential successors. In front of the White House’s north fence, workers kept up the hammering and nailing required to build the presidential reviewing stand for the inauguration in barely two months.

After the meeting, Trump headed off to meet with Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan and Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Breaking with longstanding protocol, reporters were not permitted to view Trumps arrival at the White House. And the president-elect also traveled without a protective pool of reporters, who would typically follow his movements and keep Americans informed of his whereabouts and well-being in the event of a crisis.

http://www.startribune.com/donald-trump-could-actually-take-steps-to-try-to-jail-hillary-clinton/400580871/

Quote
Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway later said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that Trump’s remark about jailing Clinton was a “quip.” She added, “As for the special prosecutor, I think that’s Donald Trump channeling the frustration he hears from thousands of voters out on the stump every day.”

During his victory speech, Trump said, “It is time for us to come together as one united people” and said that Clinton had “worked very long and very hard over a long period of time, and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country.” He made no mention of Clinton’s e-mails.

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/trump-team-discussing-ayotte-for-defense-secretary/ar-AAkc3Jy?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp
Trump team discussing Ayotte for defense secretary

The Trump team has added a name to its list of potential candidates for secretary of defense — outgoing Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.), according to two sources familiar with the ongoing discussions. If chosen, Ayotte would stand out in a Trump administration as a neoconservative defense hawk and one of the few women in the incoming Trump Cabinet.

No decisions have been made and the current list for possible defense secretary picks still centers around retired Army Lt. Gen. Joseph “Keith” Kellogg, former Defense Intelligence Agency director Gen. Mike Flynn and Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.). Flynn would need a congressional waiver to bypass a law that requires any defense secretary to be seven years out of active duty service before taking command of the Pentagon.

But Ayotte’s name has surfaced in internal discussions as a potential olive branch to the GOP foreign policy establishment that the Trump campaign was often at odds with over the past year. Ayotte is regarded as knowledgeable and competent, sources familiar with the discussions said, and would surely get swift Senate confirmation.

The Trump-Ayotte relationship has been a roller coaster over the past several months, as Ayotte tried to balance between supporting her party’s nominee and placing distance between her campaign and Trump’s more controversial comments, especially regarding women.

Ayotte did not attend the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in July. During one of her debates, she said Trump was “absolutely” a role model for children and later said she “misspoke.” After Trump’s lewd comments about women were exposed on the Access Hollywood tape, Ayotte announced she would cast a write-in vote for Mike Pence, saying “I cannot and will not support a candidate for president who brags about degrading and assaulting women.”

On Thursday, my colleague Jennifer Rubin explained the upside for Trump in adding Ayotte to his team:

Her elevation would signal that Trump campaign cronies won’t be moving into the West Wing — or the Pentagon; Trump would get credit for selecting a mainstream, serious person. In one stroke, Trump could dispel the notion that he is a lackey for Russian President Vladimir Putin or an isolationist. Ayotte would be an ideal personality to smooth out the relationship between Trump and the generals whom he routinely insulted.

Trump has often criticized the neoconservative wing of the Republican party as too quick to intervene abroad and responsible for costly U.S. interventions such as the Iraq War. But going forward, Trump has promised to ramp up the war against the Islamic State and other terrorist groups in the Middle East and hawks such as Ayotte support such a policy.

There are also several other areas of national security where Trump and conservative hawks in Congress plan to work together, including stepping up pressure on Iran, getting rid of the sequester on defense funding to increase military spending and increasing aid to Israel.

The question is whether Trump’s desire to build a big tent for national security conservatives will outweigh his disdain for the neocons in the Senate that Ayotte is associated with.

“She’s viewed as being in the mainstream of conservative Republican foreign policy,” one GOP foreign policy official told me. “She would be a defense secretary in the mold of John McCain or Lindsey Graham, and if that’s what Donald Trump is looking for, that’s what he’s going to get.”

Report: Hillary 'physically violent' after losing

Hillary Clinton lost her composure entirely when her loss to Donald Trump became evident, “crying” so much that it was “hard to understand what she was saying.” Klein said she even turned combative against her staff. “Is it any wonder that so many of her followers are emulating Clinton’s behavior, going on full-fledged temper tantrums and riots, shedding massive amounts of tears because the election didn’t go the way they wanted it to?”

People that are around me are in opposite extremes, "spiritual highs" and "downright depression" - yes, it's continued to this present day. And it's just very vexing, to be honest. Life just hasn't been the same (at least in my neck of the woods) since the election.

Thank you for the verses, it is coming to light now.

This little black magic show continues...

Officials blast Trump vote fraud claims, GOP wants to 'move on'

Washington (CNN)Election officials, leading Democrats -- and even a prominent Republican -- blasted President-elect Donald Trump after he spread allegations of voter fraud and targeted a trio of states with his false claim.

Trump first alleged Sunday that "millions" of undocumented immigrants voted against him and later directed the inaccurate charges at California, Virginia and New Hampshire. Neither Trump nor his transition team have responded to requests to explain what he meant or provide any evidence.

**Didn't Trump give up on Virginia weeks before the election?

"Serious voter fraud in Virginia, New Hampshire and California - so why isn't the media reporting on this? Serious bias - big problem!" Trump tweeted.

    Serious voter fraud in Virginia, New Hampshire and California - so why isn't the media reporting on this? Serious bias - big problem!
    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 28, 2016

Tom Rath, the former attorney general of New Hampshire and a longtime kingmaker in the state's Republican politics, knocked Trump Sunday evening.
"This will probably cost me my spot in the Cabinet but there was no fraud, serious or other, in this election in NH. There just wasn't," Rath tweeted.

    This will probably cost me my spot in the Cabinet but there was no fraud, serious or other, in this election in NH. There just wasn't.
    — Tom Rath (@polguru) November 28, 2016

And California Secretary of State Alex Padilla hit back at Trump, tweeting that his "unsubstantiated allegations of voter fraud in California and elsewhere are absurd."

    pic.twitter.com/WfXISEBwzN
    — Alex Padilla (@AlexPadilla4CA) November 28, 2016

California Rep. Adam Schiff, a Democrat, tweeted: "President-elect Trump's claim that he would have won popular vote but for fraud is as baseless as it is demeaning. #ActLikeAPresident"

    President-elect Trump's claim that he would have won popular vote but for fraud is as baseless as it is demeaning. #ActLikeAPresident https://t.co/ooESDd4Sfh
    — Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) November 27, 2016

And former Maryland governor and Democratic presidential candidate Martin O'Malley said Trump should focus instead on restoring the Voting Rights Act and ending voter suppression.

"Hey @realDonaldTrump - The real issues with voter fraud are discriminatory Voter ID laws and illegal vote suppression tactics #RestoreTheVRA," O'Malley wrote.

    Hey @realDonaldTrump - The real issues with voter fraud are discriminatory Voter ID laws and illegal vote suppression tactics #RestoreTheVRA
    — Martin O'Malley (@MartinOMalley) November 28, 2016

It was still unclear Monday why Trump was alleging voter fraud in the election he won, while Green Party officials were seeking a recount based on questions of whether voter fraud helped him win.

Marc Elias, the Clinton campaign's former counsel, pointed out the irony of Trump blasting alleged voter fraud but opposing any investigation of the election results.

"We are getting attacked for participating in a recount that we didn't ask for by the man who won election but thinks there was massive fraud," Elias tweeted Sunday night.

    We are getting attacked for participating in a recount that we didn't ask for by the man who won election but thinks there was massive fraud
    — Marc E. Elias (@marceelias) November 28, 2016

Rep. Chris Collins, a New York Republican who will be one of Trump's key point men in Congress, said he did not know if there were "millions" of people who voted illegally, but said he would rather Trump and the Green Party both "move on" from the recount.

"He is the president-elect and it is time to move forward," Collins said on CNN's "New Day." "It's time to move on. And it's time to end the discussion of recounts and, again, hopefully we can strengthen voter ID laws."

Sen. James Lankford, an Oklahoma Republican, also said there may be evidence of some voter fraud, but nothing close to the "millions" of voters Trump is claiming.

"I have not seen anything in the millions, I don't know what he was talking about," Lankford told CNN's Alisyn Camerota.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So Trump wins the election = voting machines not rigged.

But the election was rigged anyways?

In today's society, there's just no more common sense of reasoning anymore.

Texas Elector Art Sisneros to Resign Instead of Voting for Donald Trump
11/28/16

A Republican elector from Texas says he is resigning his position instead of casting his vote for Donald Trump, calling the Electoral College "corrupted from its original intent" and saying voting for the president-elect would "bring dishonor to God."

Art Sisneros was considering in August the possibility of becoming a so-called faithless elector, meaning he would refuse to vote for Trump if the GOP candidate won the Lone Star State and its 38 electoral votes in November.

In a Saturday blog post on his website, Sisneros said he had decided he was not comfortable defying his pledge to vote for his party's nominee, but neither could he cast his vote for Trump.

"Since I can't in good conscience vote for Donald Trump, and yet have sinfully made a pledge that I would, the best option I see at this time is to resign my position as an elector," Sisneros wrote. "This will allow the remaining body of electors to fill my vacancy when they convene on Dec. 19 with someone that can vote for Trump."

His decision followed a previous post in which he posed the question of whether it was "acceptable for a Christian to vote for a man like Trump for president," and concluded that he could not "in good conscience" do so.

"I do not see how Donald Trump is biblically qualified to serve in the office of the presidency," he said in his Saturday post. "Of the hundreds of angry messages that I have received, not one has made a convincing case from Scripture otherwise. If Trump is not qualified and my role, both morally and historically, as an elected official is to vote my conscience, then I cannot and will not vote for Donald Trump for president."

In the lengthy post, Sisneros explained his frustration with both progressives' and conservatives' approaches to the Electoral College and the failure to use the body in the way the founders intended, which Sisneros likened to parents acting "in the best interest of their children" even if in some cases their children desire otherwise.

"In most homes, kids do not have the right to eat Skittles for dinner. It is not in their best interest," he wrote.

"The people will get their vote. They will get their Skittles for dinner," he said. "I will sleep well at night knowing I neither gave in to their demands nor caved to my convictions. I will also mourn the loss of our republic."

Meanwhile, a separate movement is openly lobbying for enough electors to refuse to vote for Trump.

Calling themselves the Hamilton Electors – a nod to Alexander Hamilton’s explanation of the Electoral College’s job as to ensure “the office of the President will never fall to the lot of any man who is not in an eminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications” – the group spurred by Democratic electors hopes to trigger the selection of another candidate through electors either changing their votes or abstaining from voting for Trump.

Electors are set to meet in their respective states across the country on Dec. 19 to formally cast their votes for president.

Georgia’s secretary of state: DHS tried to breach our firewall

Georgia’s secretary of state has claimed the Department of Homeland Security tried to breach his office’s firewall and has issued a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson asking for an explanation.

Brian Kemp issued a letter to Johnson on Thursday after the state’s third-party cybersecurity provider detected an IP address from the agency’s Southwest D.C. office trying to penetrate the state’s firewall. According to the letter, the attempt was unsuccessful. 

The attempt took place on Nov. 15, a few days after the presidential election. The office of the Georgia Secretary of State is responsible for overseeing the state’s elections.

“At no time has my office agreed to or permitted DHS to conduct penetration testing or security scans of our network,” Kemp wrote in the letter, which was also sent to the state’s federal representatives and senators. “Moreover, your department has not contacted my office since this unsuccessful incident to alert us of any security event that would require testing or scanning of our network. This is especially odd and concerning since I serve on the Election Cyber Security Working Group that your office created.”

“The Department of Homeland Security has received Secretary Kemp’s letter,” a DHS spokesperson told CyberScoop. “We are looking into the matter. DHS takes the trust of our public and private sector partners seriously, and we will respond to Secretary Kemp directly.”

Georgia was one of two states that refused cyber-hygiene support and penetration testing from DHS in the leadup to the presidential election. The department had made a significant push for it after hackers spent months exposing the Democratic National Committee’s internal communications and data.

In an interview with Politico, Kemp intimated that the federal government’s hacking fears were overblown, saying “they now think our whole system is on the verge of disaster because some Russian’s going to tap into the voting system.”

David Dove, Kemp’s chief of staff, told CyberScoop the Georgia secretary of state’s office “got a lot of grief” for refusing help from DHS.

“We basically said we don’t need DHS’s help,” because of the contract with the third-party provider, Dove said.

The office of the Georgia Secretary of State would not reveal who the provider is, only saying the company “analyzes more than 180 billion events a day globally across a 5,000+ customer base which includes many Fortune 500 companies.”

While the majority of states worked with DHS for help in protecting their election systems from hacks, cybersecurity experts were at odds as to what portions of the country would be targeted for Election Day attacks.

Johnson announced shortly after the election that DHS found no evidence of an attack on Election Day.

HuffPo Wildly Asserts Federal Courts Could ‘Install’ Clinton As President Because Russia Via @dailycaller

The courts could legally “install” Hillary Clinton as president instead of Donald Trump, because of Russia’s alleged interference in the election, The Huffington Post asserted in a story Friday.

Seizing on a breaking report that the CIA has concluded Russia worked covertly to help Trump win the election, Alex Mojaher writes in HuffPo the findings could be enough for a federal court to “invalidate” Trump’s win. “Russian Interference Could Give Courts Legal Authority To Install Clinton,” the headline reads.

“The development has Clinton supporters and other concerned Americans confused and hot in pursuit of potential remedies,” Mojaher writes. “No clear constitutional remedy exists to halt the certification of the outcome.”

But he then goes on to assert that a 1993 state senate election result reversed by the courts due to voter fraud provides precedent for turning the White House over to Clinton. The court invalidated the Pennsylvania result after two elected officials testified under oath they knew voter fraud was happening and intentionally did nothing and even tried to bury the story. That, according to Mojaher, “recalls” the report that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell knew Russia was interfering with the election and did nothing to stop the interference.

Reports from The Washington Post and New York Times on the CIA’s conclusion Friday are conflicting regarding the extent to which Russia did interfere, and whether the country was in fact trying to help Trump. Citing senior Obama administration officials, TheNYT reports the CIA concluded with “high confidence” that Russia was intentionally working to elect Trump and harm Clinton’s chances. That lines up with WaPo’s report.

But later in the same story, TheNYT reports it is “far from clear” Russia originally intended to help Trump, and says many intelligence officials and even Clinton campaign officials think Russia was trying to undermine the integrity of the election, not help Trump directly.

Of course, even if Russia was trying to help Trump win, turning over hacked emails to the American press does not constitute voter fraud. But Mojaher seems determined to stoke the irrational hopes of Clinton supporters who still have not accepted the result of the election, even as he undermines his own assertion over and over in the story.

“Obviously both the stakes and the office in question are much higher than in the 1994 case,” he writes, adding: “There is also, of course, no constitutional Electoral College process or system in Pennsylvania, so the situations are not exactly analagous. But the reasoning behind the federal court’s decision may hold muster.”

“It is not clear how the 1994 federal case would impact a presidential election,” he goes on. “Furthermore, that case involved the judge throwing out all absentee ballots and requiring the vote be decided only by those ballots cast at the machine, which would be problematic in the case at present.”

Report: Ukraine 'Interfered' In US Election... to Help Hillary
But Trump, Russia ...

The Left is preoccupied, at present, with instigating a Cold War 2.0. We're thrilled to see them care about our nation's security being potentially breached. If only they had seemed to care while former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton compromised our national security by using an unsecured, home-brew server -- wide open to hacking from any bad actor -- to transmit and receive our classified information.

If only they cared about reports that indicate Ukraine did try to interfere in our recent presidential election... in order to help elect Hillary Clinton.

Politico just published the findings of an extensive investigation into Ukrainian interference in the U.S. presidential election, reporting that the former Soviet Bloc member tried doggedly to sabotage President-elect Donald Trump and usher Clinton into the White House.

The report indicates that Ukrainian government officials "disseminated documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter" and "helped Clinton’s allies research damaging information on Trump and his advisers."

While Politico reports that there is "little evidence" of a top-down effort -- meaning it is difficult to prove that the official order to interfere was handed down directly from Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, it is highly unlikely that he was not aware, and did not give the effort his blessing. Politico provides additional details:

Longtime observers suggest that the rampant corruption, factionalism and economic struggles plaguing the country — not to mention its ongoing strife with Russia — would render it unable to pull off an ambitious covert interference campaign in another country’s election. And President Petro Poroshenko’s administration, along with the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington, insists that Ukraine stayed neutral in the race.

[...] A Ukrainian-American operative who was consulting for the Democratic National Committee met with top officials in the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington in an effort to expose ties between Trump, top campaign aide Paul Manafort and Russia, according to people with direct knowledge of the situation.

The Ukrainian efforts had an impact in the race, helping to force Manafort’s resignation and advancing the narrative that Trump’s campaign was deeply connected to Ukraine’s foe to the east, Russia. But they were far less concerted or centrally directed than Russia’s alleged hacking and dissemination of Democratic emails.

Of course now government officials in Kiev "are scrambling to make amends" with the incoming Trump administration, even hiring a costly D.C. lobbying firm to help repair the relationship, according to the report.

The Politico investigation, which is quite lengthy, reveals that Poroshenko regime's "standing with Trump is considered so dire that the president’s allies after the election actually reached out to make amends with — and even seek assistance from — Manafort."

​Meanwhile, Poroshenko's rivals see an opportunity to pounce, visiting Washington since the election to make inroads with the President-elect.

Poroshenko is scrambling to alter that dynamic, recently signing a $50,000-a-month contract with a well-connected GOP-linked Washington lobbying firm to set up meetings with U.S. government officials “to strengthen U.S.-Ukrainian relations.”

Revelations about Ukraine’s anti-Trump efforts could further set back those efforts.

“Things seem to be going from bad to worse for Ukraine,” said David A. Merkel, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council who helped oversee U.S. relations with Russia and Ukraine while working in George W. Bush’s State Department and National Security Council.

"None of the Ukrainians have any access to Trump — they are all desperate to get it, and are willing to pay big for it," an American consultant familiar with the debacle told Politico.

Radio silence from the Left ensues.

Patriots Super Bowl comeback echoes 2016 race: 'Hillary lost all over again'

Washington (CNN)Football fans compared the New England Patriots' historic comeback against the Atlanta Falcons to President Donald Trump's unexpected win against Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in the 2016 general election.

    What an amazing comeback and win by the Patriots. Tom Brady, Bob Kraft and Coach B are total winners. Wow!
    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 6, 2017

Noting the late comeback, the President congratulated the Patriots and his "friend" quarterback Tom Brady, tweeting, "What an amazing comeback and win by the Patriots. Tom Brady, Bob Kraft and coach B are total winners. Wow! #SuperBowl."

Lady Gaga brings message of inclusion to Super Bowl halftime -- oh, and drones

As the Falcons led the Patriots by a wide margin the end of the first half, one Twitter user predicted a Patriots comeback that could come after FBI Director James Comey announces he's investigating the Falcons, leading to an incredible loss of momentum.

    Sure, Atlanta's up big now, but wait until the Comey letter drops in the 4th quarter. #SuperBowl
    — Hans Noel (@ProfHansNoel) February 6, 2017

"Sure, Atlanta's up big now, but wait until the Comey letter drops in the 4th quarter," Georgetown associate professor Hans Noel tweeted, as the Falcons led the Patriots 21-3 by the end of the first half.

The Comey comparison is a reference to the FBI director's October 2016 announcement that the FBI was investigating new emails related to the Clinton use of a private email server, which came at a critical and late stage of the election. No charges were ever filed against Clinton in the investigation.

    Some time in the 3rd Quarter, Comey sent out a letter saying he was investigating the Falcons.
    — Ana Navarro (@ananavarro) February 6, 2017

"Some time in the 3rd Quarter, Comey sent out a letter saying he was investigating the Falcons," CNN political commentator Ana Navarro tweeted as fans of both teams sat on the edge of their seats.

Here are other instances in which fans compared the Patriots' unexpected, late breaking comeback to Trump's 2016 win:
