On election eve, Donald Trump bragged at a rally in New Hampshire that his “great friend” Tom Brady voted for him. This was news to Tom, who claimed he hadn’t voted yet. When asked on social media if she and her husband were Team Trump, Gisele Bundchen responded with a loud “NO.” Things at the Bundchen-Brady home must have been a really awkward during their usual dinner of blanched celery leaves that night, because Tom says he’s not allowed to talk about politics anymore. Politics, please take your place with sugar, coffee, strawberries, and everything else that’s not allowed anywhere near Tom Brady’s mouth.
Tom was asked at a New England Patriots press conference yesterday why he gave his good buddy Donny permission to talk about his ballot. Tom answered by saying: “So you’re assuming I gave people permission.” When pressed further, Tom brushed it off and said he just wanted to talk about football. Tom’s brain must not be inflated to capacity, because a quick second later he changed the topic from football to politics, specifically how he’s not allowed to talk about it anymore.
“I talked to my wife, she says I can’t talk about politics any more. I think that’s a good decision, made for our family.”
He added: “I have a lot of relationships with a lot of people, and I don’t think a lot of people are entitled to what my conversations are with friends of mine or people that I may speak with.” Tom said that he wasn’t upset about Trump winning and that as an athlete, he’s always happy when people experience success.
It all happens around the 4:02 mark.
Gisele really should have been more specific with Tom. Telling him “no politics” clearly didn’t work – he still kept the conversation on politics. What she should have done was fit him with a remote-control dog collar that she could have zapped every time he came close to outing himself further as a Friend of Donald. “You know, I have lots of friends (BZZZZZ) oh shit, I mean…uh, let’s talk about this goofy Patriots hat I’m wearing. Why do I look like Jimbo Jones shoplifting a football? Any questions about my hat and only my hat?”
