Tom Brady Pokes at Trump's False Election Claims in White House Visit

NFL star quarterback Tom Brady took a scarcely veiled shot at Donald Trump’s false election claims during a celebration of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Super Bowl victory with President Joe Biden on Tuesday.

.................

..............

The quarterback added a jibe at the “Sleepy Joe” moniker Trump coined for his opponent during their campaign.

“We had a game in Chicago where I forgot what down it was,” Brady said. “I lost track of one down in 21 years of playing and they started calling me ‘Sleepy Tom.’ Why would they do that to me?”

Brady has starred in the NFL for more than two decades and is the oldest quarterback to lead his team to a championship. He previously won six Super Bowl titles with the New England Patriots before joining Tampa Bay last season.

He drew headlines after he skipped the Patriots’ 2017 visit to the White House, when Trump was in office. He also skipped a visit during Barack Obama’s administration, citing family reasons..................................

8. He's fab and a beautiful man. After every game he calls out to his wife

In interviews he will tell the reporter, to hold on, he has to go hug his kids.

Had his parents at one Super Bowl and got emotional, hugging his mom, and talking about her battle with cancer. His dad is his best friend

If one of his teammates are having problems, he invites them to stay with his family and work on the problem. I've been a fan for 20 years

There are a lot of smarmy people in the world. Brady is not one of them

12. funny, but a cheater who was found to have cheated and got benched for it by the league

is very much a cheater. The whole team is corrupt and was found to cheat multiple times, and it's owner pays woman for sex.

Quite an organization you had there.

But very republican as well. I'm happy you are pleased.

Clearly, your hatred for the greatest QB has blinded common sense. Sad

17. I don't even know who that is...

I'm not a fan of any team. I don't watch or follow professional sports. I live in mass and brady's and the pats infamy is very much in the news and has been for decades.

But if you think I'm a fan of a competitor, you arejust wrong. I don't like brady for who he is; not the job he holds.

4. Been a Brady fan for 20 years. This was a fun moment

It sent Dipshit Donnie into a tail spin. The story on RS said he was "wounded" because he has been obsessed with Brady for years.

As a side note, It was so much fun watching the Tampa sports guys kiss Brady's ass last season, after berating him for years. Oh how I loved it. Looking forward to Ring 8.

Edit to add..Damn, he gets better looking every year. Amazing specimen

6. Maybe I saw it differently. But looked like a break from Trump to me.

I’m no NFL big follower. But have pulled for the Saints since the early 70’s.

And have been a Tampa fan since I moved to Central Florida 34 years ago. But seldom watch games.

Brady’s team mates seem to like and respect him. And he declined visits with Obama and Trump. Joe certainly took it in stride. Actually seemed to make him look good and poked fun at the right. I know it was not well received by the hard core trumpers.

I also know some of them met with VP Harris to talk voting rights.

9. Brady was never friends with trump. Trump was obsessed with him and

call him after games, or be with Kraft and chat him up, invite him to play golf
Brady is nice to people and not confrontational. It was a one way obsession. He didn't go to the WH when he won the Super Bowl while trump was there. He made an excuse and trump was pissed and more pissed today

Of course, some love to hate on The Goat. Bitter and jealous and clueless to facts

Tom takes it in good stride. He's awesome and his teammates love him. He's a great leader

I moved from Boston to Tampa. It was so much fun watching the shitty Tampa sports guys, kiss Brady's ass, after berating him for years. I loved every minute of it

13. bs - he kept a maga hat in his locker and was quoted as saying he was a friend

He golfed with him often.

Brady said it. He felt tfg was a friend and wouldn't criticize him.

He is a supporter and would be again.

14. BS back at you. Kraft gave him the hat. You know..his boss.

You're wrong 100%. I know the story. His wife even said they didn't vote for dump.

Sorry it doesn't fit in your hate agenda. Jealousy is a powerful emotion

15. sorry, your sad devotion to that aging athlete..

Does not remove that red hat he kept visible in his locker, or erase his golf visits, or even seem believable coming from his wife.

I don't know why its so hard for you to admit, but brady is a pig. A talented pig, but he oinks nonetheless.

It shouldn't be political. Nice to see them show up and be respectful. Hope they all enjoyed the relaxed environment.

21. I perceived Brady's "joke" differently

It seemed to me that he was suggesting that 40% of the nation (Trumpers, a high estimate) did not accept or believe that Biden won. When Brady was saying that "we won" I thought he was referring to the Tampa Bay football team and not Joe Biden's victory. Did Brady suggest that he was on Biden's team, and "we won?" Didn't seem like it to me.

But the media and commentator response has been rather unanimous in that Brady was mocking Trump, so I guess perhaps my perceptions are a little skewed.

A little confused.
