Tom Brady Reveals Real Reason He Skipped White House Visit (Video)

When Tom Brady bailed on the New England Patriots’ visit to the White House last month, there were some whispers that his decision might have been politically motivated given his wife’s vocal opposition to President Donald Trump. And it certainly seemed like the President was miffed at his absence, because Trump didn’t even mentioned Brady during his 10-minute speech.

However, it turns out Brady has a very good excuse for skipping the visit that not even Trump can hold against him. Apparently Tom was spending time with his sick mom.

Tom Brady’s mom, Galynn Brady, has been battling cancer for well over a year. In fact, you might recall that it was kind of a big deal that she was able to attend Super Bowl 51 at all.

On Tuesday Brady was in New York for the Met Gala. When the folks from Extra caught up with him on the red carpet, they asked him why he couldn’t make the White House visit, and Brady said it was so he could spend time with his mom.

Check it out:


I bet Trump feels pretty bad for holding a grudge now. He’ll probably write Brady a tremendous apology letter, though. Greatest apology letter anyone has ever written. Believe me.
