Well, at least Tom Brady had made it a few consecutive days without being at the crux of a controversy. But that’s over now.
The New England Patriots quarterback -- who spent much of the summer both in the headlines and in the courtrooms -- raised the blood pressure of his PR team last week when a hat featuring Trump’s campaign slogan was seen in his locker.
At the time, Brady dodged giving a direct answer as to whether he would vote for the controversial candidate. But today, the equivocation was axed -- Brady wants Trump in 2016.
In a way, it makes sense. Both figures are charismatic but oft-caricatured, and popular within their respective bases while being polarizing to the rest of the nation.
Brady, however, should be a better friend to his 69-year-old golf buddy, and should perhaps reconsider his public vote of confidence in Trump. Why?
Friends don't let friends make an ass of themselves by running for president.
