Since Donald Trump left office, we've returned to a state of nationwide sobriety. (Or semi-sobriety, really, considering the launch of a space dick today.) With that, we've been able to return to countless traditions that President Happy Meal rendered—either directly or indirectly—obsolete.
One of those great pastimes? The White House visit from a recent-championship-winning sports team. (There's a long list of squads that turned down Trump's offer to hang.) Now, with Donny long gone, the White House is seeing guests of the tall and jacked variety once again, starting with—who else!—the Super Bowl-winning Tampa Bay Buccaneers, led by Tom Brady, a dear friend of Florida's most disgraceful Florida Man. On Tuesday morning, the crew, which defeated the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV this past February, gathered to celebrate its win with President Biden. By all accounts, it was a good time. Speeches, handshakes, all that. We just noticed one odd thing. Tom Brady had jokes. When the GOAT took the stage, he quipped, "Not a lot of people think that we could have won. And in fact about 40 percent of people still don’t think we won.”
A Trump bit? From this guy? Weird! If you're keeping track of Brady's political history, this is the same guy who was spotted with a MAGA hat in his locker back in 2015. At the time, he said that Trump sent Robert Kraft the hat and it "found its way to my locker." Whatever the hell that means, Trump and Brady have been friends and sometimes golfing buddies since 2002. After this led to speculation that Brady supported Trump politically, the quarterback told Howard Stern in 2020 that people were mixing up friendship with politics.
“Then the whole political aspect came, and I think I got brought into a lot of those things because it was so polarising around the election time,” Brady said. “It was uncomfortable for me, because you can’t—and not that I would undo a friendship—but the political support is so different than support of a friend.”
For what it's worth, Brady declined to visit the White House during the Obama and Trump administrations, citing family reasons in both instances. Whatever the case, it's a little strange that Brady would come out swinging at Trump, given his history with the man. Brady also said that opponents called him "Sleepy Tom" after the time he screwed up the down count this season and lost his shit. We're waiting on the bit where Brady says that someone planted the MAGA hat in his locker.
