Scaramucci has an outlandish theory about why Brady skipped the White House visit

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci speculated that Gisele Bundchen prevented Tom Brady from attending a Patriots event at the White House because she was jealous of Brady’s relationship with President Trump’s daughter Ivanka.

Did Tom Brady once date Ivanka Trump?

Former White House communications director Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci seemed to suggest as much during an appearance on “TMZ Live” Monday night.

The Mooch speculated that Brady may have skipped the Patriots’ latest White House visit because his supermodel spouse, Gisele Bundchen, was aware of a relationship between the QB and the president’s daughter.

Meanwhile, the Mooch also admitted that he was just guessing.

“I don’t 100 percent know, but my guess is, which is typical, there could be a little bit of jealousy there and protection and possession of Tom Brady, and she probably didn’t want him to go,” said Scaramucci. “I think Gisele shut him down. Maybe there was a relationship between him and Ivanka at some point, I have no idea. . . . Maybe it was someone else, I don’t know.”

You’ll recall that Brady, who has been a longtime golfing buddy of Trump’s and kept a “Make America Great Again” hat in his locker prior to the 2016 election, surprised everyone by skipping the team’s last White House visit, citing “personal family matters.”

Bundchen, a big environmentalist who has expressed concern about climate change, is not believed to be a Trump supporter. In response to an Instagram comment following the election, she said she and Brady did not vote for Trump.

Before marrying Bundchen in 2009, Brady dated Longmeadow-bred actress Bridget Moynahan. Ivanka Trump has been married to Jared Kushner since 2009.
