Meredith Vieira needs to understand that Americans don’t want to mix their sports with their politics. Following the United States’ thrilling shootout victory over the Russians in hockey on Saturday, NBC’s Meredith Vieira used the opportunity to lobby Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential ambitions.

Speaking to NBC’s Al Michaels, Vieira commented that she overheard a Canadian spectator sat that, “if that Hillary Clinton wants to run for president she should have Oshie as her running mate and she’s a shoo in.” [See video below.]

For those who missed the game, T.J. Oshie scored the game-winning goal during the shootout to clinch a victory for the Americans, but Vieira couldn’t resist using the opportunity to cheer on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential aspirations. It appears that members of the liberal media are going to use any opportunity they can to campaign for Hillary 2016, even its the Olympics.
