We know who Tom Brady will be pulling for in tonight’s Republican debate: good pal (and golfing partner) Donald Trump.
The Patriots’ quarterback – who proudly displays a “Make America Great Again” hat in his locker – may currently be in prep mode for Sunday’s matchup against the Buffalo Bills, but that didn’t stop him from responding to a reporter’s question about tonight’s GOP debate (specifically, if he had any advice for Trump). And while Brady admitted he didn’t, he let it be known that he’s officially all in on a Trump presidency…though not for any apparent political reasons.
“That would be great,” Brady said. “There’d be a putting green on the White House lawn, I’m sure of that.”
Of course, theirs is a bromance that stretches back more than a decade; last week, after he was asked about the “Make America Great” cap during an appearance on WEEI radio, Brady revealed that he’s known Trump since 2002 – “I was a judge at a Miss USA Pageant,” he laughed – and that the friendship between the two has only grown in the years since.
“He always gives me a call and different types of motivational speeches at different times,” Brady said. “Now that he’s running for president, he sent [Patriots owner Robert Kraft] a hat and it found its way to my locker.”
Trump has never been shy in showering the Patriots’ QB with praise, calling him “a great friend” and “a total winner.” And obviously, the feelings are mutual; now, if only he could get Ronda Rousey to change her tune.
