Patriot’s Tom Brady Backing Trump as a Candidate?

By  | 



New England Patriot’s quarterback, Tom Brady, is in the news as of late. Remarks over his support for Donald Trump as Republican nominee have put him in the hot seat.

Earlier this year in September, a locker photo leaked showing Tom Brady’s ownership of a “Make America Great Again” hat. It’s been known the quarterback enjoys spending personal time with the outspoken, fear-mongering, businessman-turned-politician Donald Trump. It remains unclear, however, if Brady still feels as committed to Trump as he initially implied.

When asked directly, if Brady supports Trump’s proposal to ban all Muslim immigrants, Brady failed to give a concise answer. Irritated with the interests in his political views he continued to further speak about his lack of interest in politics. Saying, “(Trump’s) been a fun guy… I don’t even know what the issues are. I haven’t paid attention to politics in a long time.”

The New York Daily, known for lambasting Trump as a viable GOP candidate, picked up on Brady’s remarks offering the following cover.

The media had a field day over this, and caused the quarterback to back out of further questioning during a press conference Wednesday, October 16th.

Trump’s interest in posing a ban on Muslims is bad press for any celebrity to back. Brady should think about that the next time he offers support to someone so well-known for being openly opinionated.
