NFL superstar Tom Brady, quarterback of the New England Patriots and four-time Super Bowl winner, has had a long friendship with Republican nominee Donald Trump. Trump, feeding his obsessive need to surround himself with famous people to improve his own self-image, forged a fast connection with Brady by offering him a chance to judge a Miss USA beauty pageant with him, where they bonded over leering at beautiful women.
“If one thing stands out about Tom Brady, it’s that he loves those women. And guess what? They love him, too” said Trump to Sports Illustrated. Trump was so obsessed with Brady tried his hardest to hook his daughter Ivanka up with Brady – and considering the Trump’s extremely inappropriate and uncomfortable affection Trump holds for his daughter, that’s a very significant move.
Last December, Brady told the Dennis and Callahan show “Donald, he’s a good friend of mine. I’ve known him for a long time. I support all my friends. That’s what I have to say. He’s a good friend of mine.” It makes sense that the two would hold each other in such esteem, considering they are both extremely wealthy, fond of beautiful women, and are both fond of skirting the rules to get ahead.
Which makes it extremely amusing to see a reporter ask a question of actual substance at Brady’s weekly press conference. Today, someone asked Brady about how he felt about Donald Trump’s sexist comments – and Brady couldn’t have run away any faster.
