Tom Brady’s tip against Donald Trump

Star quarterback Tom Brady poked fun at his predecessor Donald Trump when he received the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from US President Joe Biden. At the White House, the 43-year-old playmaker for the North American Football League champions looked back on the NFL season. In doing so, he drew a comparison between those who refuse to accept Trump’s election defeat and those who could not believe that Tampa Bay would defeat favorites Kansas City Chiefs 9-31 in the February final.

“Not many would have thought that we could win,” said Brady on Tuesday (local time). “In fact, I think that around 40 percent of people still can’t believe we won. Can you sympathize with that, Mr. President? “Biden replied to the laughter of Brady’s teammates:” I can. “

The two men also share a similar nickname. Biden, who was presented with a jersey with the number 46 as the 46th President of the USA, was christened “Sleepy Joe” among other things in the battle for office. Brady had briefly forgotten in a season game how many attack attempts his team had been in. He was then called “Sleepy Tom”. “Why are they doing this to me?” Brady asked cheerfully.

Biden also made a reference. As the oldest President of the United States, he said of Bruce Arians, who was the oldest coach to lead a team to the title, and of old master Brady: “You won’t hear jokes from me about age. As far as I’m concerned, there is nothing wrong with being the oldest guy who can make it to the top of the mountain. “

It was Brady’s first visit to a president since the George W. Bush administration in 2005. He was absent from the 2015 title wins when Barack Obama held office and 2017 from Trump. In 2019, he and the New England Patriots waived their visit completely, although Brady was still considered a big supporter in Trump’s first election campaign. Gradually, however, the support dwindled.
