For many people in this country, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady tops the list of most hated public figures. Whether it is his four Super Bowl victories that have all come in close games, his supermodel life, his boy band-ish looks, the Boston fans or his personal style, there is just something about the man that makes football fans around the nation despise him. The recent Deflategate saga, where Brady ended up getting off scot-free despite ample evidence of his cheating, only reinforced his standing as a villain.
Well, on Wednesday, the Brady haters were given yet another reason to detest the Pats QB. During an exchange with members of the media in the Gillette Stadium locker room, Brady was asked his thoughts on Donald Trump’s Presidential campaign. Earlier this month, one of Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ baseball caps was spotted in the signal caller’s locker, raising suspicions that Brady was a Donald supporter. The former Super Bowl MVP confirmed to that he indeed endorses the real estate mogul’s White House run.
Brady asked if Trump can win election. “I hope so. That would be great. There’d be a putting green on the White House lawn, Im sure of that”

And, of course, you just knew that the Trumpster had to brag about Brady’s endorsement via Twitter.
Thank you to Tom Brady, Coach Ditka, Coach Bobby Knight and all of the many champions that have been so supportive!

Anyway, there ya go. Now I guess we’ll just be waiting on an announcement from Trump declaring Brady as his running mate.
