Tom Brady calls Donald Trump a good friend, doesn't say if he'd vote for him

Tuesday September 8th, 2015

Tom Brady grabbed some non-Deflategate headlines last week when a hat bearing Donald Trump’s campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again,” was spotted in his locker following the team’s final preseason game.

On Tuesday morning Brady spoke with Boston sports talk station WEEI, which asked about the hat and got him to confirm that it is his. Brady added that he considers the real-estate magnate/reality star/presidential candidate a friend.

Brady did not reveal whether he had decided to lend Trump his vote come election time, but did add that he thought the blustery billionaire is “a hell of a lot of fun to play golf with.”

Trump has stuck by Brady repeatedly throughout the Deflategate saga, recently sending a tweet to congratulate the quarterback on his legal victory over the NFL.
