Buccaneers’ Tom Brady takes jabs at Donald Trump during visit to Joe Biden’s White House
Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers visited the White House on Tuesday to celebrate their Super Bowl victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. Brady was in a joking mood with United States President Joe Biden, even taking some jabs at the last President, Donald Trump.
Solid shade from Touchdown Tom:
Not a lot of people think we could win, in fact, 40 percent, still don't think we won. You understand that, Mr. President?"

The first bit, of course, is a reference to Trump’s continued lies claiming the 2020 Presidential Election was rife with voter fraud and that it was stolen from him. The second bit is a reference Trump always coming up with derogatory nicknames for people he doesn’t like, with “Sleepy Joe” a constant dig aimed at Biden.
Seeing these comments from the Buccaneers quarterback will surely anger Trump, who has been a golfing buddy of Brady in the past. There has been speculation that Brady is a Trump supporter, especially after a MAGA hat was seen in his locker, but Gisele Bundchen has denied any support.
Brady did also skip the New England Patriots’ White House visit in 2017, which reportedly made Trump angry after all the support he had shown the quarterback in the past. The Patriots didn’t go to the White House in 2019 after winning that Super Bowl.
Patriots owner Robert Kraft has a longtime relationship with Trump, and Bill Belichick was supposed to get the Presidential Medal of Freedom from the 45th President. However, Belichick turned down the honor after the Jan. 6 insurrection at the United States Capitol.
We’ll see if Donald Trump has any response to the Buccaneers quarterback after these jabs.
