Here's why Donald Trump is pulling for the Broncos in Super Bowl 50
Donald Trump is backing the Broncos in Super Bowl 50 because Peyton Manning is his friend and "a very good guy."
The leading Republican Presidential candidate has plenty of opinions and plenty of friends when it comes to football. Donald Trump's friendship with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is well documented, but it turns out he's also buddies with another famous quarterback.
"Your Carolina team is sort of a hot team. And the quarterback's doing great. I very much have always liked Peyton Manning. He's a very good guy. I know him. And he's a very, very good guy," Trump told CBS' Face the Nation on Sunday. "So I have to go with the person I know and I like. I like the other team. I think the other team looks fantastic. Probably, they would be favored by something.
"But I'll stick with Peyton because he's a very good guy."
Shoutout to Trump for not rolling heavy with the front-running team here. He could easily go with the Panthers, the hottest team in the country at 15-1, but he's sticking by his buddy, Peyton.
