It’s Championship weekend, football fans. Tom Brady is set to lead the Patriots to another Superbowl (at least according to Rob Eno). So of course, reporters are anxious to hear about…Donald Trump.
The media and greater left already think it’s problematic the Patriots might have connections to the Donald (see Liberals Demand You Boycott Patriots for Connections to Trump). But what does Brady think?

Brady doesn’t take the bait. Sure, it’s an easy question to answer. Did you call him, yes or no? Here’s the rub, let’s say Brady answers…
Brady: Yes, I called him to congratulate…
Reporters: What did you talk about? What about the inauguration crowd size? Do you have any thoughts on the women’s march? Will you denounce what Trump said about…I don’t know, pick something? Do you agree with Trump on tariffs?
Brady: You people were less annoying when when you were asking about my deflated balls. Hey, what about Roethlisberger and that girl?
Tom Brady has literally two things on his mind: the Pittsburgh Steelers and his hot wife. Leftists/reporters obsession with politicizing everything is why the NFL has had more productive years… many years ago. See NFL Ratings Drop MAJORLY Following Athlete Protests and NFL Still Losing MAJOR Viewership Over Protests.
So for the media, some advice: let sports be sports. Let entertainment be entertainment. Good on Brady for keeping his press conference about the upcoming playoff game against the Pittsburgh Stealers. His take on the game is relevant. His take on Trump is not. #Priorities
Secondly, to politicians like Donald Trump: keep politics in politics. Leave football players out of your limelight. Brady wants to play football. He’s a consummate, dedicated player. Let him do his football thing without you, Trump, roping him into your celebrity collection. Maybe Brady doesn’t want to be bullied by leftist trolls. Just spitballing.
Enjoy the games today, folks. Let’s let football be just that. A game.
