Tom Brady Speaks About Donald Trump Relationship: What Is the Big Deal?

Tom Brady is speaking about his personal relationship with President Donald Trump after months of speculation that he voted for the Republican winner in the election.

“Why does that make such a big deal? I don’t understand,” the 39-year-old quarterback, who will be playing in the Super Bowl on February 5, said WEEI’s “Kirk & Callahan” radio show. “I mean, I don’t want to get into it, but if you know someone, it doesn’t mean you agree with everything that they say or do, right? You have a lot of friends in your life [like that].”

“I have called him, yes, in the past. Sometimes he calls me, sometimes I call him. But, again, that’s been someone that I’ve known. I always try to keep it in context. For 16 years you know someone, before maybe he was in the position that he was in, and he’s been very supportive of me for a long time. It’s just a friendship. I’ve got a lot of friends. I call a lot of people,” Tom continued.

President Trump has mentioned Tom on the campaign trail, and there were reports that Tom had a Make America Great Again hat in his locker this year.

    Not a fan of tom brady or trump for that matter but i’m sick of everyone trying to put everyone in a political bubble. If you’re related to trump you’re this… if you voted for trump you’re that. Give it a rest. There are bigger issues in the world and your constant b*tching and complaining isn’t going to change anything.

    It matters because not only is he a football cheat but Tom Brady is a deplorable Donald Trump loving idiot.

    at first i wondered how this “all american” guy could be friends with someone like donald trump. and then i remembered how him and ben affleck flew to las vegas with affleck’s nanny/mistress. They all keep each others dirty secrets!

    Dirty secrets? It was a charity event. A charity event is NOT a dirty secret. Brady didn’t know the nanny would be there.

    Disagreeing on fundamental rights is no friend of mine.

    how quickly everyone forgets that hilary supported her husband while he was banging other women in the oval office… go hilary! liberals support the rights of cheating too, lets not forget

  • Sansa Squad

    it’s spelled hillary (unless you’re referring to hilary duff, in which case, color me intrigued).

    and no one has forgotten, but now that he’s our president it’s no longer acceptable to lean on her as an example when attempting to construct an adequate defense of his behavior.

  • persononhere

    well sweetheart, isn’t that why everyone is so sad, because hilary didn’t win. so, she’s the example. all these women out there fighting for women’s rights and your little leader is ok with adultery and supporting a cheating husband.

  • Sansa Squad

    there are bigger issues in the nfl, let alone the world. but at the end of the day people just love to hate tom brady and him being a tr*mp supporter is a legitimate excuse. same thing happened when he left his pregnant gf for gisele and when he was implicated in the whole deflategate fiasco – he got RIPPED because he was exposed as being kind of a pos and it validated people’s negative feelings towards him (meanwhile other guys in the league get away with so much worse). tbh I think brady is a smug, self-righteous assh*le so I love watching people give him hell for literally anything, but I also think it’s important to acknowledge this has everything to do with brady and really v little to do with tr*mp or politics at all.

  • Sansa Squad

    you’re making a lot of presumptions there, sweetheart. :) I for one don’t presume to know what “all these women out there” are thinking and feeling, but the impression I’ve gotten is that people are more upset by him winning than they are by her losing – after all, there are plenty of sanders/stein/johnson supporters who are fighting for women’s rights too. regardless, my point still stands – she’s out of the equation now, so it’s time to find a new argument.

  • disqus_KwgiMZNJ54

    the nanny flew in their private jet and wore his super bowl rings..and took pictures with it. how did he not know she was there?

  • Name

    You are so STUPID!
    “There are bigger issues in the nfl…” Yes, but you are wasting your time with this story.
    1. He NEVER said he is a Trump supporter. 2. He did NOT leave his “pregnant girlfriend” for Gisele. His ex-girlfriend didn’t even know she was pregnant. It was an amicable split. Gisele had nothing to do with that. 3. Deflategate? LOL. It never happened.

  • Name

    Your comment is a waste of space. I know she “flew in their private jet”… I’m not ignorant, you are ignorant. I didn’t say he didn’t know she was there. I said she should not be there. Affleck invited her to that charity event, but Brady didn’t know she would be there. Of course she took pictures, that’s why you THINK you know something about that story.

  • Sansa Squad

    and you’re wasting your time replying to me!! thank you for your list of alternative facts but to be clear, I never said either of those things happened exactly that way or that what was reported was 100% accurate. those were the narratives that were out there in the media and he got dragged for them whether they were true or not. my whole point was people want to hate him so they’ll find their reasons and if it wasn’t tr*mp it’d be something else. and as for whether or not he’s a tr*mp supporter, his refusal to clarify one way or another kind of says it all. but believe whatever you want, apparently we’re all allowed to disagree with facts now so this story is really whatever you want it to be!!

  • Sansa Squad

    you should at least have the balls to stand up to them when/if you think they’re wrong. dialogue can change things, silent complacency can’t.

  • Name

    You are right. I’m wasting my time. You are really stupid. I can’t feel sorry for you, but you should feel sorry for yourself. You sound so stupid. You are still wasting your time with him. I agree, some people WANT to hate him and they will find their “reasons” and YOU are one of those people. But you don’t even have a good reason and it’s very sad.

    I’m sorry your dad beat your mom so now you hate women. I’m sorry your mom was shitty to you and verbally abused you. I’m sorry that as a boy you were told not to cry. Crying is a human emotion not a feminine one. I’m sorry you think it’s cooler to be dumb than to be smart. Life is going to be very hard for you. I hope you find a book that helps. They fuck you up is a good one.

    I can’t be friends with a gross sexist/racist. Who can? A racist can. You lazy aholes were jealous of a black man who spoke more intelligently than you. That’s all this is, and you got whittle wieners.

    I wish people would get along. It should not matter if they are friends or not.

    I don’t hate tom brady. I just find joy in watching other people give him a hard time because it’s satisfying for me to see cracks in the armor of his high and mighty attitude. is that petty?? of course!! but it’s not hurting anyone (except for, evidently, you and your feelings). if I’m so stupid and you lack the capacity to feel sorry for me, maybe use less energy worrying about how I’m spending my time and more energy finding something that brings YOU joy. have a blessed day.
