- (Huffington) - 1 years, 9 months ago...

It's easy to forget now, but before he was a Republican presidential candidate, business mogul Donald Trump was interested -- at least a little bit -- in owning the NFL's Buffalo Bills. Trump ultimately lost out to a higher bidder last year, and was quite bitter about it. After losing out on the team, The Donald offered a preview of the social media presence he'd later bring to the presidential race.  Even though I refused to pay a ridiculous price for the Buffalo Bills, I would have produced a winner. Now that won’t happen.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 13, 2014 On this week's "The Second Half" podcast, Daily Beast and New York Times Magazine columnist Ana Marie Cox posits that Trump's bravado and outsized self-assurance might have made him the "perfect NFL owner." She also discusses the effect of Trump's anti-Muslim pronouncements have had on the world of sports, where incidents of Islamophobic discrimination have occurred multiple times in recent weeks.  Also on this week's episode: U.S. Women's National Team star Carli Lloyd sits down to discuss women's soccer stars' ongoing fight for equal treatment, and how the sport can continue to grow after a year as big as 2015 (that interview starts at 16:25). This podcast was produced, edited and engineered by Peter James Callahan and Adriana Usero, with assistance from Christine Conetta.
