In a recent interview with Pro Football Talk, Tom Brady weighed in on the White House visit and said it’s a great experience if you put politics aside.
“It really is a great experience,” Brady said. “Putting politics aside, it never was a political thing. At least, it never was to me. It meant you won a championship and you got to experience something cool with your team, with your teammates. Everyone has their own choice. It’s an offseason. These days are valuable for everybody. You only get so much time with your family and friends, and if people don’t want to go they don’t want to go and that’s their choice.”
“Everybody has their own choice,” Brady reiterated. “There are certain years, like a couple years ago, I wanted to go and didn’t get the opportunity based on the schedule. We didn’t get told until I think like 10 days before we were going, and at that point I had something I’d been planning for months and couldn’t get there.”
He says he had something scheduled that he could not cancel but he was seen at the football stadium stretching and at the Apple Store making a purchase when his team visited formed President Barack Obama. I’m not calling this man a liar because he could have handle whatever pertinent business he needed handle that day but it still looks suspicious. But it’s like he stated everyone has a choice so hopefully we can stop talking about the choice these 6 men made, it is what it is. Let’s move on!
