Tom Brady’s recent trip to the White House has sparked interest in the iconic QB’s past. While Brady dominated the AFC East division in New England, he kept a “Make America Great Again” hat in his locker.
Brady stashing the Trump hat in his locker drew attention to the friendship Brady and Trump had. That briefly made headlines and caused Brady to dodge questions from every angle. Unfortunately for Tom Brady, this was just the beginning of the Trump-centered questions.
Donald Trump organized a rally in New Hampshire and told America that Tom Brady had voted for him and that Brady allowed him to share the news with everyone.
After Donald Trump won the presidential election, Brady was asked a question that was harder to dodge than a 300-pound line of defense. A reporter asked the NFL icon why he allowed Trump to share the details of his vote.
Brady replied, “Why did I give him permission? So you assume I allowed people. I’m only going to talk about football.” When his answer reached the nation, his wife Gisele Bundchen gave her opinion on the situation.
Why doesn’t Tom Brady talk about Trump or politics anymore?
A fan asked Gisele Bundchen on her Instagram if she and Brady supported Trump. Bundchen replied with a clear “NO!” After Trump broke the news that Brady had voted for him, Gisele stopped those rumors on her Instagram.
Gisele’s comment raised more questions about the Brady-Trump situation. Reporters again began asking the QB if he supported Trump. Brady dodged that question by replying, “Talk to my wife. She said I couldn’t talk about politics anymore. I think that’s a good decision, made for our family.’
After being asked again about his relationship with Donald Trump, Brady said he just wanted to talk about the Patriots-Seahawks game.
“I just want to focus on Seattle. I have a lot of relationships with a lot of people around the world and I don’t think a lot of people are entitled to what my conversations are with friends of mine or people I talk to.”
With all the criticism Donald Trump received after becoming president of the United States, it’s easy to see why Gisele Bundchen didn’t want Tom Brady to talk about Trump or politics. It should be fair game now though, right?
