Trump Jokes :Brady has long been thought to be a Trump supporter, but his comments on Tuesday imply otherwise.
Tom Brady riffs veiled Trump jokes with Biden at Bucs’ White House visit
Tom Brady is not known for making political statements, but during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ visit to the White House on Tuesday, the reigning Super Bowl MVP delivered a veiled dig at President Donald Trump over his election fraud claims.
On the South Lawn of the White House, Brady, 43, joined Bucs co-owner Bryan Glazer, head coach Bruce Arians, and some of his teammates to celebrate their Super Bowl LV victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.
During his address, the veteran quarterback made a veiled jab at Trump’s suspicions of voting problems in the 2020 election by linking it to the Buccaneers’ season.
“Not many people believe we could have won, and I believe 40% of the people still don’t believe we won,” Brady added, turning to Biden. “You’re aware of it, Mr. President.”
Brady even compared Trump’s nickname “Sleepy Joe,” which he coined during the election campaign, to one he was given after he appeared to forget what down the Bucs were on during Tampa’s Week 5 game against the Chicago Bears.
“In Chicago, we had a game where I forgot what down it was. After 21 years of playing, I lost track of one and became known as “Sleepy Tom.”
With a giggle, he asked, “Why would they do it to me?”
Brady has been said to be a Trump supporter. In 2015, a signed “Make America Great Again” cap was discovered in his locker.
Brady has been referred to as a “friend” by Trump in the past, and he even wished him success with the Buccaneers after he left the New England Patriots.
The focus of Tuesday’s White House visit was also on encouraging people to get vaccinated.
Biden advised squad members to “go get one,” while Arians stated that his players “do what they’re supposed to do, on and off the field.”
“One cause, one team.” He told Biden, “I hope the Senate and the House start helping you out.” “One cause, one team.”
Brady stated that the Buccaneers will resume practise tomorrow in the hopes of earning another White House visit.
