Is there beef between Donald Trump and Tom Brady after the former didn’t show up to the Patriots’ meeting at the White House on April 19?! That’s what fans are speculating after Trump didn’t even MENTION Tom’s name in his speech to the team. Watch here.
“This Super Bowl victory was a complete team effort, that’s the beauty of what they do,” Donald Trump, 70, gushed over the New England Patriots, when the Super Bowl champions paid him a visit at the White House April 19. “They win as a team. With your backs against the wall, and the pundits saying you couldn’t do it, saying the game was over, you pulled off one of the greatest Super Bowl comebacks of all time. One of the greatest comebacks of all time.”
President Trump made several mentions of specific players during his speech, including Danny Amendola (for his 4th down conversion), Trey Flowers (for his epic sack) and Julian Edelman (for his incredible catch), along with Marcus Cannon, Matt Slater, Nate Ebner and Malcolm Mitchell. One person he noticeably didn’t bring up though was the team’s MVP, Tom Brady, who revealed earlier in the day he couldn’t come to the ceremony because he was “attending to some personal family matters.”
Before the Super Bowl, Trump was constantly singing Tom’s praises, so it’s definitely telling that he wouldn’t mention him during an event honoring the team. Could the president be that offended that the quarterback didn’t come?! Tom has previously called Trump a “good friend,” but was recently publicly scrutinized for showing support for the 70-year-old in the 2016 election. Maybe he decided to cut ties with Trump once and for all…and now there’s beef between them!? This is all purely speculation, of course.
As we learned before the Super Bowl, Tom’s mother, Galynn Brady, has been battling cancer over the last year, so many are worried that the “personal family matter” he skipped White House event for has to do with her. He also revealed on April 19 that it’s his parents’ anniversary, which could be another reason he decided to stay home for this one. What do you guys think?
HollywoodLifers, do you think Trump was dissing Tom by not mentioning his name at the Patriots’ White House visit?
