Donald Trump and Tom Brady are very good friends. It has been said by both of them a number of times over the years.
Last Thursday night, the President addressed the nation to deliver the latest information on the country’s efforts in limiting the coronavirus pandemic.
During that presser, Trump just randomly brought up Tampa Bay Bucs QB Tom Brady to the many reporters in the room.
“We had a terrific meeting [with U.S. governors]. Somebody in the fake news said that one of the governors said, ‘Oh, we need Tom Brady.’ I said yeah,” Trump told reporters at The White House. “He meant that in a positive way. He said we need Tom Brady, we’re gonna do great. And he meant it very positively. But [the media] took it differently. They think Tom Brady should be leading the effort. That’s only fake news.”
If you’re confused by him bringing up Brady, it goes back to a Washington Post story where it stated Washington governor Jay Inslee objected to Trump’s assertion that the federal government is prepared to serve as a “backup” to states in need during the COVID-19 crisis.
Inslee told Trump, “We don’t need a backup. We need a Tom Brady.”
..and there is why Brady’s name came up.
