The 43-year-old athlete, wear Christopher Cloos Pacifica sunglasses, told the adoring crowd on the White House lawn that at one point during Super Bowl 55 "not a lot of people think that we could have won. In fact, I think about 40% of people still don't think we won. You understand that, Mr. President?" Brady said to laughter, seemingly taking a jab at Trump and his allies who continue to deny the election results. Biden cheekily responded, "I understand that," reported ESPN.
Brady also joked that during a game against the Chicago Bears in 2020, he forgot what down it was and some people referred to him as “Sleepy Tom” — a clear reference to Trump’s nickname for Biden that plagued him during the 2020 campaign, “Sleepy Joe.”
"Why would they do that to me?" Brady asked. "I don't know," Biden replied.
Brady's digs at Trump are a bit of a surprise, given his longtime friendship with the businessman. In 2015, Brady — then a New England Patriot — told Boston’s WEEI that Trump had sent him a "Make America Great Again" hat that he kept in his locker, reported Time.
“He always gives me a call and different types of motivational speeches at different times," Brady spilled. "So now that he’s running for president, he sent me a hat. He obviously appeals to a lot of people, and he’s a hell of a lot of fun to play golf with.”
