Tom Brady won’t say if he’s voting for ‘good friend’ Trump
If Tom Brady is planning to vote for Donald Trump, he’s not telling.
The Patriots QB, who’d previously called the Republican presidential candidate a “good friend,” was asked at his weekly press conference Wednesday for his thoughts on the controversy swirling around Trump.
“Tom, you have kids of your own. How would you respond if your kids heard Donald Trump’s version of ‘locker room talk?’ ” asked NECN reporter Jonathan Choe, referring to Trump’s characterization of the lewd and crude comments he made on a leaked video of an appearance on “Access Hollywood” a decade ago.
Brady smiled but didn’t answer.
“Thank you, guys,” he told reporters. “Have a good day.”
We’re told that reporters who cover the Patriots were outraged by the question because it didn’t have anything to do with football. But we appreciated it. Considering that Brady had one of Trump’s “Make America Great Again” hats in his locker last year, and once told reporters “it would be great’’ to have Trump in the White House — “There would be a putting green on the White House lawn, I’m sure of that,” the QB said — it seems fair to ask if he’s planning to vote for the billionaire developer.
Apparently we’ll never know.
