Patriots QB Tom Brady won’t comment on President Donald Trump, White House visit
The New England Patriots are set to visit the White House and President Donald Trump after winning their sixth Super Bowl last Sunday, but star quarterback Tom Brady is refusing to answer any questions about it.
When asked by an NBC reporter on Thursday morning if he was going to visit the White House, he simply said, “Next question,” per TMZ Sports.
Remember: back in February of 2017 following the Patriots’ Super Bowl win over the Atlanta Falcons, Brady passed on the White House visit, as he and President Donald Trump, who were previously friends, had a falling out.
Brady’s wife, Gisele Bundchen, has been very vocal in her dislike for Trump and his policies, so that certainly may have to do with the rift in Brady and Trump’s relationship. We will just have to wait and see if Brady does, in fact, pass on the visit once again.
With six rings, the 41-year-old has more Super Bowls than any other player in NFL history, with no other quarterback even having five. Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw have four apiece.
Brady threw for 4,355 yards, 29 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions in 2018 while completing 65.8 percent of his passes and registering a passer rating of 97.7.
Those are great numbers for most other quarterbacks, but we are used to seeing more from Brady, which led to many voicing their doubts as to whether or not the wily veteran still has it. Of course, Brady silenced his critics in the playoffs, leading the Patriots through yet another incredible postseason run.
