Tom Brady walks out of press conference after Trump question
Wednesday October 12th, 2016

Tom Brady refused to answer a question regarding Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in a press conference on Wednesday.

NECN reporter Jonathan Choe asked Tom Brady how his children would respond to “Donald Trump's version of locker room talk.” Before walking off the podium, Brady smiled and said, “Thank you guys. Have a good day.”

Watch the press conference question below:

In September 2015, Brady was spotted with a hat in his locker that read “Make America Great Again,” the slogan of the Republican’s presidential campaign. Brady later clarified that the hat was given to him by Patriots owner Robert Kraft before it ended up in his locker. He also said it “would be great” if Trump was elected president and joked about a putting green on the White House Lawn.

Brady later said that he would like to stay out of politics talk.

“Donald is a good friend of mine,” Brady told Boston radio station WEEI in December 2015. “I have known him for a long time. I support all my friends. That is what I have to say. He’s a good friend of mine. He’s always been so supportive of me — for the last 15 years, since I judged a beauty pageant for him, which was one of the very first things that I did that thought was really cool. That came along with winning the Super Bowl. He’s always invited me to play golf. I’ve always enjoyed his company.”
