Tom Brady Cuts Press Conference Short When Asked About Donald Trump
"I'm just here to play football."
New England Patriots' star quarterback Tom Brady cut a press conference short on Wednesday when asked about his recent comments about friend and GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump.
On Tuesday, Brady made headlines for once again talking about Trump during a radio interview, saying: "I support my friends in everything they do."
His comments landed him on the Wednesday cover of the New York Daily News, featuring a picture of Brady with the headline: "Brady Has No Balls."
When he was asked about the cover and his comments during a team media conference on Wednesday, Brady cut the routine gathering short.
This is not the first time Brady has been questioned about his friendship with Trump. Not long after Trump began his bid for the White House, reporters spotted a hat in Brady's locker with Trump's presidential slogan. Brady again had to address his thoughts on the Trump campaign when he clarified remarks about endorsing the candidate, saying that in fact he had not endorsed Trump when discussing the billionaire businessman on a separate occasion.
Trump was a vocal supporter of Brady during the Deflategate scandal.
They had no definitive proof against Tom Brady or #patriots. If Hillary doesn't have to produce Emails, why should Tom? Very unfair!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 11, 2015
People are so jealous of Tom Brady and the Patriots. No court could convict based on the evidence.They can't beat him on the field, so this!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 11, 2015
