Uh oh, Tom Brady’s in trouble! In a press conference on Nov. 9, he revealed that he’s been banned from talking about politics to the press by none other than his lovely supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen. See his explanation, right here.
Gisele Bundchen, 36, is NOT HAPPY that Donald Trump, 70, used her husband Tom Brady, 39, to try to convince the people of New Hampshire to vote for him. Days before the election, Donald insisted at a rally that Tom (and Patriots head coach Bill Belichick) had endorsed him for president. Gisele was fuming, and it sounds like she quickly forbid Tom from doing that sort of thing the future.
The day after Donald officially (and shockingly) became the President-Elect, Tom was asked about the election at a Patriots press conference on Nov. 9. “I talked to my wife, and she said I can’t talk about politics anymore,” said Tom. Clearly, he agrees. “I think that’s a good decision, maybe for our family.”
So, did he really endorse Donald before the ban went into effect? We’re still not sure. He was pretty vague at the press conference when asked if/why he gave permission for Donald to use him in his speech. “So, you’re assuming I gave people permission,” he said to a reporter before pausing for a weirdly long time when asked for clarification and then laughing awkwardly and saying “I’m just going to talk about football this week.” Hmm.
Gisele definitely doesn’t want people thinking she OR Tom voted for Donald. A fan on Instagram commented on one of her pics and said “I heard you and Tom are voting for Trump, is that true?” to which she responded “NO!”
Meanwhile, Donald maintains that Tom has love for him. “I said, ‘So, Tom. You voted for me, you support me, am I allowed to say it tonight at this massive crowd in New Hampshire?’” explained Donald. “He said, ‘If you want to say it, you can say it.’ Okay? Tom — that’s what a champ is all about.” It wouldn’t be totally shocking. Tom has said he and Donald are friends and golf together in the past, and was even seen with a “Make America Great Again” hat in his locker. Hopefully the wifey doesn’t fine out!
