After the whole “Deflategate” controversy involving the New England Patriots during last season’s NFL playoffs, we all know that quarterback Tom Brady has a problem with his balls, but until recently we thought it was just footballs.
Back in September, the superstar QB was proudly sporting a Donald Trump “Make America Great Again” hat in his locker room stall. That was after Trump’s remarks about Mexican immigrants, but before his latest rounds of idiocy about Muslims. Apparently the insanity has become too much for even the New England glamour boy, as now he says he doesn’t want to talk politics, or Trump.
Brady hasn’t been shy about politics in the past, even before prominently placing his Trump hat where all could see it. Last spring he skipped the Patriots’ visit to the White House, which was believed by some to be a slight against President Obama. Prior to that, Brady had been a guest of George W. Bush at the 2004 State of the Union address.
Trump has taken several opportunities to praise Brady and says that Brady’s support is the reason why he is polling so well in Massachusetts. He told The Washington Post:
In Massachusetts, I’m at 48 percent. You know why? Tom Brady said Trump’s the greatest. He says it to anyone who asks him. You know, it’s hard for a guy like him to say that. When you’re a football player, you don’t want to be taking sides in campaigns and having the Hillary people now say you’re not as good as Bart Starr. You understand. So Tom Brady is great.
Awwwwwww. Can’t you just feel the douchebag to douchebag love? But Tommy-boy doesn’t want to talk Trump.
Brady pays a weekly visit to a show called “Dennis & Callahan with Minihane,” on Boston radio station WEEI. On December 15, he was asked a direct question about whether he was supporting Donald Trump for president. Here’s how he answered:
Can I just stay out of this debate? Donald is a good friend of mine. I have known him for a long time. I support all my friends. That is what I have to say. He’s a good friend of mine. He’s always been so supportive of me — for the last 15 years, since I judged a beauty pageant for him, which was one of the very first things that I did that thought was really cool. That came along with winning the Super Bowl. He’s always invited me to play golf. I’ve always enjoyed his company.
I support all my friends in everything they do. I think it’s pretty remarkable what he’s achieved in his life. You’re going from business, kind of an incredible business man and then a TV star, and then getting into politics. It’s a pretty different career path. I think that is pretty remarkable.
Compare that to what Brady was saying a while back. In September, when Brady was asked if he thought Trump had what it takes to get elected, here was his response:
I hope so. That would be great. There’d be a putting green on the White House lawn. I know that.
Hey Tom, looks like it’s time to check your balls again.
