Tom Brady: Donald Trump is a good friend, and I support my friends

Robert Kraft, Donald Trump AP

After Donald Trump stirred controversy by proposing a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States, some in the NFL world spoke out against him. But Patriots quarterback Tom Brady won’t join in.

Brady said on WEEI that he’d prefer not to get into politics, but he will stand by his friendship with Trump.

“Can I just stay out of this debate?” Brady said. “Donald is a good friend of mine. 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 I thought was really cool that came along with winning the Super Bowl. He’s always invited me to play golf and I’ve always enjoyed his company. I support all my friends in everything they do. I think it’s pretty remarkable what he’s achieved in his life. You’re going from business, kind of an incredible businessman and then a TV star, and then getting into politics. It’s three different career paths. I think that is pretty remarkable.”

Trump has become such a controversial figure during his presidential campaign that a public show of support for him could be costly to the reputation of a public figure like Brady. But Brady doesn’t seem to care about that. He’s with Trump.

    Players should stay out of politics. It’s a no win situation whatever side you take.

  2. j0esixpack says: Dec 15, 2015 11:26 AM

    Brady at one point was rumored to be considering a post-football career in politics.

    I’d expect if he did, he’d make it clear that no party owns him – just as Trump generally has – which is the foundation of his support, like it or not.

    Taking a position in support or opposed to Trump’s campaign would be a stupid move for Brady – saying that he is loyal and stands by his friends was the wise way to go (and he’s been asked this on WEEI before and continues to give the same answer)

    “Trump has become such a controversial figure during his presidential campaign that a public show of support for him could be costly to the reputation of a public figure….”

    Could also be a positive. Not everybody likes the usual politicians. Not everybody is politically correct. I’d say the silent majority is speaking loudly with their support of Donald. I for one, hope he wins…. if nothing else, just to watch all the liberal heads explode…

    Why Brady continues to work with WEEI is beyond me.

    LolBrady

    I have a lot of friends that I “support” yet would still call them out for being a dumba$$.. More reason to cheer for Carolina!!!

  9. dwinsgames says: Dec 15, 2015 11:30 AM

    Are you a good enough friend to tell him that he is being an a$$hole bigot?

    This might be the only time I’ll cheer on Tom Brady.

  11. jjeastwald says: Dec 15, 2015 11:30 AM

    Good for Brady. You shouldn’t have to apologize for a guy that makes statements about protecting American lives. I don’t like Brady, and not overly fond of Trump, but I can respect their willingness to stand up to the left-wing numb nuts.

  12. davehamgood says: Dec 15, 2015 11:30 AM

    He said he supports his friend and did not want to be a part of the political event for those of you who did not read the article.

  13. rynehawk says: Dec 15, 2015 11:31 AM

    I support my friends too, but if one of them jumps on the crazy I’m one of the first to let them know. If they keep it up, well, maybe we aren’t such good friends anymore.

    Vouching for terrible people who are friends is still vouching for terrible people.

  14. bengalsfan2079 says: Dec 15, 2015 11:31 AM

    Why does it matter who he supports or doesn’t support it’s his decisions not anyone elses.

    Wow, to say that someone like Trump is a good friend, tells us a lot about your character.

  21. nyneal says: Dec 15, 2015 11:33 AM

    Good for Tom Brady. I’m glad he said that he stands by Trump because he’s his friend. That’s what he should do.

    And good for Donald Trump for not being afraid to say what he believes.
    It’s great to see a politician who is above the stench of all the poll driven, politically correct robots who are ruining (yes, ruining, not running) this country.
    Harry Truman was the last President to say what was on his mind and didn’t care less what anyone thought. He was the best President no one gives credit to. I’ve been hoping for years we’d see someone with the guts he had.
    I might not agree with everything Trump says, but at least he’s up front about it and everyone knows exactly what he means. For that alone, he’s better than all the rest of the schmucks who are running.
    About 30 years ago, I saw Donald Trump on Phil Donahue’s (Donapuke, in my eyes) show. Trump said then that the U.S. should no longer be a country where we rush to the aide of another country with our military unless we’re compensated for it. He said our ships in the Mediterranean cost the U.S millions of dollars, and we foot the bill alone. He said the cost should be shared by those we protect. He was right about that and no one listened to him then. Maybe it’s time we listen to him now.

  22. getyourownname says: Dec 15, 2015 11:34 AM

    Forget the politics. Doesn’t say much for Tommy that he considers the country’s leading narcissistic braggart, sexist, bully and phony to be a good friend.

  23. sbhntr says: Dec 15, 2015 11:34 AM

    Liberals and Communists don’t want anyone to have an opinion.

    I applaud Mr Brady for expressing his opinion openly. We need more of that in this country, and less political correctness.

    Quarterbacks are cheaters, egomaniacs, deflators, and fakers. And some, I assume, are good people.

    I think Trump is nuts. But you gotta give it to Brady – he’s not bailing even though he could easily. That’s pretty cool.

    Even if it’s for someone like Trump

  26. factman66 says: Dec 15, 2015 11:35 AM

    It’s one thing to support a politician, but it’s something else altogether to openly support an overt racist/misogynist/xenophobe like Trump. It’s 2015. That’s not okay. If you support that kind of garbage, you are a bad person.

  37. ruvelligwebuike says: Dec 15, 2015 11:38 AM

    Trump’s loose cannon tactics scare me when it comes to foreign policy.

    Trump’s habit of saying true statements that go unsaid due to Goebbels-like language control scares liberals.

    Which one is worse for the country?

    “Why Brady continues to work with WEEI is beyond me.”

    Fact is, he is compensated for his weekly appearance. Not sure if the cash goes to him or to charity, but he gets a check.

  44. bradyakagod says: Dec 15, 2015 11:40 AM

    It is very possible that this a situation where every one else is crazy and Trump is the correct one. Bradys view on health is also the correct one and the rest of the county might as well be eating their own vomit that they puke up from eating garbage food.

  45. wchadwicks says: Dec 15, 2015 11:40 AM

    I agree players should stay out of politics because while a “public show of support for him could be costly to the reputation of a public figure”, a public show of disagreement could also be costly to the reputation of a public figure.

  46. truckinmack says: Dec 15, 2015 11:40 AM

    That did it. Goodell already was highly motivated to target Brady. Now he is going to be rabidly insane about it.

    First Brady skips a White House visit. Now Brady supports his friend Donald Trump. The NFL suits are will give no quarter and show no mercy…

    and they will still lose.

  47. edelmanfanclub says: Dec 15, 2015 11:40 AM

    A multimillionaire supporting a Republican. I am shocked.

  48. blessedunliketherest says: Dec 15, 2015 11:40 AM

    Why is this a story? For months the media has continued to try and lure Brady into saying he is voting for Trump. He continues to not want to get involved and is trying to be diplomatic. Being the GOAT, I understand everyone wants to bring him down but this is just getting silly. Move on with this non-story and discuss more important issues like how at 38-years old, Brady is continuing to dominate and cement his legacy as the best ever.

  49. lemmetalkwouldya says: Dec 15, 2015 11:41 AM

    That’s one of the great things about Tom Brady; he believes what he believes, and doesn’t care what the media – or anyone else, for that matter – thinks.

    I’m not a Trump fan, but I find it ironic that the people who oppose a ban on the basis of religion — which I also oppose — have no problem whatever with killing 300,000 Muslims where they live. This has been the effect of U.S. foreign policy since the 1990s. And that figure — 300,000 — is the most conservative estimate.

    To his credit, the Donald at least doesn’t propose endless war in the Middle East.

  55. pats777 says: Dec 15, 2015 11:47 AM

    Vince McMahon also supports his good friend Trump. Then again, lately, NFL = WWE.

  56. boyso3 says: Dec 15, 2015 11:47 AM

    I love how Brady simply saying that he supports his friends, which is what we all do in life, somehow means that he agrees with everything Trump says. How many of us have had a friend get a DUI. While no of us condone what they did we don’t kick our friends to the curb. As a matter of fact when a friend is struggling or doing crazy things we tend to step up and help that person more than we normally would. There isn’t one person on this planet that actually agrees with everything their friends do or say. It’s unconditional

    ===========================
    This “dynasty” will be around and spoken of positively for a lot longer than you and I will be, mikeymikey. And somehow I don’t think Brady cares much about what you have to say. For that matter, I don’t think Donald Trump much cares what you think, either.

    As if any non patriots fans needed another reason to dislike tom Brady, he supports a textbook fascist. Big surprise.

  61. clashpoint says: Dec 15, 2015 11:51 AM

    Brady is trying to walk a very narrow line that’s got bs swirling all around him no matter where he goes with it. That’s probably the best he can do under the circumstances. If I were in his position I’d say I’m independent then shut the hell up or immediately change the topic.

    That said, I’m NOT in his position, and I can point out that everyone who actually checks to see what a politician is lying about knows that NOBODY lies like Trump does. He just says what the average tool wants to hear.

  62. fanofschill says: Dec 15, 2015 11:52 AM

    Guy basically says he’s a friend, not going to comment publicly and people are giving him sh!t? Does he have to tear him a new one? His comments say nothing about Trumps politics. I have many friends and family whose politics I disagree with, I am still their friend and would do anything for them.

    Love the folks who are like “I have friends but would call them out if they did something dumb”. Yeah, I bet all of you would go national with your opinion on your friends. Bet your friends would love to see your comments trending on twitter and FoxNews.

    Which proves that Tom Brady is a spoiled brat who is over-rated and has single handedly ruined the game of football with his cheating scandals and his wanting to never get hit. Football was better before this POS and will be better once he retires and finds his next wife.

  76. blckjcksn says: Dec 15, 2015 12:06 PM

    Hate to break it to you Trump supporters, but he is playing you for fools. Absolute fools. He is going to hold up a mirror to you at the end of this ridiculous campaign to show you how foolish and ridiculous you all are. Then he will congratulate the new president, whether it be Sanders or Clinton, and accept the nation’s gratitude for utterly destroying the backward and regressive republican party. Brady knows this and it’s why he hasn’t spoken out against Trumps obvious xenophobia and racism. It’s going to be a great day for America.

  77. painsyndicate says: Dec 15, 2015 12:07 PM

    Tom Brady is a true patriot and a great American. You have to love it when liberals get poked and their little heads explode. Was it really THAT bad being picked last for kickball all those years ago?

  78. truthprofessor says: Dec 15, 2015 12:08 PM

    I like watching Tom Brady play football and don’t care one iota what politicians he does or does not like.

    Letting celebrities tell you who to vote for, what car to drive, or what clothes to wear is sheer stupidity.

    Admire the talent, period. Don’t look for life lessons.

  80. allforfunnplay says: Dec 15, 2015 12:09 PM

    Brady is an idiot. Not because of who he chooses to support (though that is an entirely different idiotic decision IMO).

    But regardless of who he supports. It’s the REASON why he supports them is stupid. A GOOD VOTER SUPPORTS ISSUES NOT PEOPLE. I have plenty of friends that I think are political idiots. I couldn’t imagine supporting them politically.

    If Brady said that his friend Donald Trump fights for all the issues he believes in (which I personally find base and reprehensible) fine. He would have good REASON to show his support Trump. Even if I disagreed with everything Brady and Trump support. I could respect his REASON for supporting Trump.

    But to publicly state he supports his friend because Trump has been a good friend, they’ve judged beauty contests and were invited to his parties….just reminds me how unfortunate it is that everyone’s vote counts equally.

  81. ohand16 says: Dec 15, 2015 12:10 PM

    Tom Brady did NOTHING wrong!

    And if the Bills would have let Trump buy the team all “this” could have been avoided. Once again, it’s Buffalos fault.

    Liberals and Communists don’t want anyone to have an opinion.

    I applaud Mr Brady for expressing his opinion openly. We need more of that in this country, and less political correctness.
    ========================================
    Trump can get away with it because with his stature he doesn’t answer to anyone. He employs hundreds of thousands of people. John Q Public gets fired, called a racist, ostracized for not bowing down to the mentally ill far left.

  91. t38267 says: Dec 15, 2015 12:20 PM

    I understand why comments by celebrities and sports figures regarding politics are influential (and news), but if you think about it for a minute, they shouldn’t carry any more sway than comments by anyone off the street. If anything Brady has LESS time to read than think about political issues than most others (especially during the football season). I suspect Brady doesn’t even know half the things Trump has said recently.

  92. mototax says: Dec 15, 2015 12:20 PM

    Okay! Brady just went up several clicks on my admiration chart. He still has a ways to go but I respect his willingness to be who he is, not what others want him to be.

    Well done Mr. Brady!

  93. RavenzGunnerz says: Dec 15, 2015 12:22 PM

    Wait a sec, so many posters are saying that athletes should keep their political views to themselves….

    Where are these people when liberal athletes spoke up about Ferguson, gun control, Bush, etc?

    Oh so THOSE liberal athletes can speak and it’s okay but if a conservative speaks up….well that just cannot be tolerated according to some of you.

  95. garyeyee says: Dec 15, 2015 12:23 PM

  97. rolf1015 says: Dec 15, 2015 12:24 PM

    So Brady is a bad guy because Trump is a “friend” of his? He didn’t say he is voting for him or supports his positions, just that he is a “friend”.

    So professional athletes cannot have “friends” that have different political views than you do? Seriously?

  98. orrnumberfour says: Dec 15, 2015 12:25 PM

    I applaud Mr Brady for expressing his opinion openly. We need more of that in this country, and less political correctness.

    All of you have friends/family that support Trump. Sad, but true. But Tom has gone out of his way to say his support as a friend isn’t an endorsement for him to be Pres.

  104. thegenoatkinsdiet says: Dec 15, 2015 12:32 PM

    “Are you a good enough friend to tell him that he is being an a$$hole bigot?”

  105. billymutt says: Dec 15, 2015 12:37 PM

    Ah, the times we live in.

    Tom Brady clearly said he does not want to be drawn into a political debate, and simply answered honestly when asked about Trump.

    Maybe if people took time to actually read the story… but I guess the risk of letting the facts interfere with a chance to heap insults on Tom Brady makes that wishful thinking.

  106. soxwin91 says: Dec 15, 2015 12:38 PM

    This is why I hate the media. Tom Brady didn’t endorse Donald Trump as a candidate for POTUS. He said he’s friends with the guy. You can be friends with someone and not agree with everything they say. Just because he is friends with Donald Trump doesn’t mean he is endorsing him. People are putting words in his mouth. The first thing out of his mouth on the topic today was “Can I just stay out of this debate?” Then he went on to talk about his FRIEND who has been supportive of him from the early stages of his career in the NFL.

  107. RE LEE says: Dec 15, 2015 12:40 PM

    You know who your friends are during your darkest hours. Trump stood by Brady during his Deflategate tribulation. It’s rare to find true friends. Will you cast away your friend or family because of their politics? Politics for crying out loud.

  108. weepingjebus says: Dec 15, 2015 12:42 PM

    Kind of amazing that we live in a country where the SB MVP can create controversy by having a “make America great again” hat. Consider that unlike the rest of us Brady has spent time personally interacting with both Trump and Obama. That he views Trump as a friend and skipped his latest White House SB trip may suggest who he blames for “immigrants” blowing up the Boston Marathon or any number of other events involving the new terror visas we apparently hand out. In other words, if Obama did his job we wouldn’t even have to debate these things.

  109. dsigrey says: Dec 15, 2015 12:47 PM

  112. boobsmcgoo says: Dec 15, 2015 12:51 PM

    An athlete’s political views are not newsworthy, nor was Brady trying to make news. He was asked the question. Who knows why? My guess is that now the interviewer and all those who pick up on this “news” story can run with it and simultaneously smear two famous people of whom they are critical. And the bottom feeding commenters can grab on to the low hanging fruit and proclaim, “Aha, they’re both jerks!”

  113. iamaltair says: Dec 15, 2015 12:54 PM

    He isn’t really showing support politically though. He says he doesn’t want to get into politics and just supports his friends, all his friends. Why make it seem like he is supporting Trump’s politics when really he is just supporting a friend running for president. A small difference but quite large when you really look at it. And really, who cares? He is a QB in the NFL, why should his opinion on anything not football matter?

    Perhaps I missed the “so many posters” on here saying Brady should stay silent. I see many that think he is wrong but I couldn’t see any that said he didn’t have a right to express his views.

  115. chieftaindawg says: Dec 15, 2015 12:55 PM

    “Can I just stay out of this debate?” Brady said.

    He did say that. Do you think because the Donald likes football, he goes around saying he knows Tom Brady and that means he’s a football player? No. So Tom Brady is not a politician.

  116. thegonz13 says: Dec 15, 2015 12:56 PM

    Admire Brady for standing up for himself. They run together, so he supported him as his friend, as friends are supposed to do. He did not support him as a candidate publicly, and I respect that too.

  120. erle1139 says: Dec 15, 2015 1:07 PM

    Lol @ everyone that’s getting butt hurt over Brady’s friend. Some people need to get a life and worry about themselves instead of spending so much worrying about others.

    And lol @ all the people calling the Don a racist and bigot…apparently they’re not very familiar with what those words really mean….but I guess you don’t need to when they’re your only play when you meet people who don’t conform your opinions.

  121. clashpoint says: Dec 15, 2015 1:15 PM

    All I ever want from anyone as far as politics goes is to think for yourself. Don’t believe something just because anyone of any political persuasion tells it to you. Most cell phones and every computer hooked up to the internet has nearly endless resources for checking the bullcrap of every stupid thing every stupid power-hungry stooge running for every office. Look stuff up for every side of an issue before picking any sides. An educated opinion beats an ignorant opinion every time.

    Tom Brady is a stand up guy who doesn’t desert his friends or teammates. It’s one of the reasons you will never see one of his many ex-teammates say anything but good about him. It’s one of the things that define him as a leader. Any PR guy would tell him to distance himself from Guerrero and Trump and Brady doesn’t care. He is not in life to seek anyone else’s approval or to kiss Goodell’s or Wells’ butts. If you want to take Brady on, he really doesn’t care (unless you work for ESPN).

  123. pondbridge says: Dec 15, 2015 1:19 PM

  130. beachsidejames says: Dec 15, 2015 1:45 PM

    Its a smart and correct move by Tom to support the people that have stood by and supported you. If a vote for Trump means protecting and putting U.S. citizens as your 1st priority I’d say that’s a good change from what we have now.

    Trump strongly supported Brady during the deflategate debacle and said…

    “If I were Tom Brady, I’d sue the hell out of the NFL, for defamation. $250 million dollars. Sue ’em, Tom — they’ll settle so fast, your head will spin.”

    Pretty good advice…I wish Brady would sue the NFL, and don’t blame him for supporting his friend.

    I’m not a fan of Brady nor do I hate him.

    The NFL Rule states that “there must be CLEAR evidence upon review to overturn a call on the Field.”

    There were no clear evidence that Amendola did not catch the ball and no clear evidence that Whites heal came down out of bounds. Despite the lack of CLEAR evidence the NFL RULES against the Patriots. They did so, as they have also done to other teams this season, because Goodell & Blandino are making a CLEAR statement of “We will CONTROL the outcomes of games at our discretion.”
    Now the Patriots created a large lead over the Texans, but what happened in the Pats/Broncos game when it was close – EASY FIX by Refs and Blandino – EASILY Determined who would be the ‘Chosen Winner’ of that game.

    And he squandered that $200 million then borrowed millions from other beneficiaries of his father’s estate, which he then squandered. If he had simply invested the $200 million, he would have more than he claims to have now and he wouldn’t have had to soak the taxpayers and so many investors. Pathetic.

    Political Correctness, the dictate of the Left who intimidate and prevent The People from Thinking and speaking the TRUTH.

    LIBERTY = You are under attack from within and from Elite Federalists who want the US Constitution to be merely a museum piece and believe it is “OUTDATED”.
    Whereas “OUTDATED” equates to Militaristic Government Authoritarian Rule where the people are ‘Monitored’ and herded as Sheeple.

    2008 SB : PATRIOTS vs GIANTS = Presidential Election Year

    2012 SB : PATRIOTS vs GIANTS = Presidential Election Year

    2016 SB = Presidential Election Year

    AFC = RED = The Republic = We The PEOPLE = LIBERTY

    NFC = Blue = The Federal Government = CONTROL of the People

    The entire motive behind Deflate-Gate had absolutely nothing to do with Rule 17 and football pressure/unfair advantage ( Science Dummy)

    Goodell & the NFL does NOT want the PATRIOTIC Republic Image in the SB and most definitely they do not want the Patriots to have the VICTORY.

    Goodell = Political Smear/Slander Campaign against Brady and DUE PROCESS and NFL Players Rights.

    When Goodell speaks he promotes his Authoritarian Rule Agenda. His use of the word Integrity equates to “I must have Total Control” = just as he has stated in the NFL’s Appeal to NYC Court.

    The NFL office is located in NYC = Same place as the UN Headquarters = These are Operational Control Centers .

He’s filed multiple bankruptcies while being bailed out by the American taxpayer. I’m tired of this bloviating, draft-dodging, cowardly, insulting egomaniac. It will be entertaining when the Republican Party tells him to pound sand. The Party’s only fear is that if he runs as an Independent, he’ll fracture the Party and it will be an easy victory for the Democratic candidate.

    A multimillionaire supporting a Republican. I am shocked.

    Oh — so there are no multimillionaires supporting Democrats, right?

    Get a grip man, because you are clueless.

    It’s funny. The left wingers always attack those who speak out against those who would destroy this country. I wonder why that is?
    Here’s what I know. I work in a very low middle class job with people who are mostly senior citizens, and they are loving what Trump is saying.
    Liberals have destroyed this country by continually tearing it away from the core values which made it great. The thing which is most arrogant about them is they pretend that only the Republicans have millionaires pulling the strings of their politicians.
    Meanwhile, since they always vote Democratic like the blind sheep they are, they’re probably going to nominate a woman for President who has done more financial shenanigans than anyone, and who’s husband used the Oval Office for his sexual pleasures while he did nothing to stop terrorism when it started to escalate.
    I hope Donald Trump keeps on speaking out. It’s about time someone had the guts to say what most Americans believe.
    And if Hillary gets the Dem nod, I’m voting for Trump, even if I have to write his name in.

    Way to go Brady. I guess you show where your convictions lie. Looks like narcissists stick together.

    Is Aaron Hernandez his friend?

    So all of you who are slamming Brady because he says he won’t turn his back on his friend — do any of you have friends? And do you agree with everything they say or do? And if you don’t, do you turn your backs on them??

    This just in — you can be friends with someone and care about them, and that doesn’t mean you agree with everything they say or do.

    I’ll vote for Trump because he’s not a politician, and he hates political correctness. It doesn’t matter whether they are Republicans or Democrats, all politicians are the same, and they work for the lobbyists, not for the people.

    Brady and Trump are friends and have been so for years. That does not mean that Brady shares Trump’s political views.

    Get it?

    Two things you could potentially be judgmental on here.

    #1. Should Brady be friends with Trump? The answer to me is yes. While you may not like Trump’s politics, many people have friends that they disagree with in terms of their beliefs, but they are still fundamentally good people. I don’t think Brady should be blamed for that. He can be friends with whomever he wants.

    #2. Should Brady support his friend? That’s easy. That’s the stand up thing to do. Might not be the popular thing to do, but it’s still the right thing to do.

    I love Brady. But if he thinks that Trump’s ideas about how to treat Muslims, including Muslim Americans, are bad ideas, then he should have said something, however diplomatic. This isn’t a political issue. We’re not talking about tax policy and the best way to control carbon emissions. We’re talking about the proposed systemic marginalization of people of a certain creed. It’s a moral issue and Brady should forget about his carefully manicured public image and just speak his mind.

    Supporting your friends is a fine thing, but friendship can’t trump (heh) your sense of right and wrong.

    Tom Brady supports his friends, no matter how stupid they are, or how much better he is than they are.

  187. varangia says: Dec 18, 2015 1:10 AM

    Trump has tons of friends. Should every friend disown him because he hurt some terrorists feelings?

  188. varangia says: Dec 18, 2015 1:14 AM

    Mike Tyson said basically the same thing. Anyone is welcome to give him a hard time.

  189. alfredogarciashead says: Dec 18, 2015 8:50 AM

    Got to be burning up the liberal masses to see their idol backing Trump. Now how do you feel about the GOAT? Still your favorite? This has to be killing them to root for someone whose solution to every problem is not to form a committee and then raise taxes.

  190. tylawspick6 says: Dec 18, 2015 9:55 AM

    Bad choice by Brady. Very bad choice to put that hat in the locker. And, I am a Pats fan.

    All that talk started happening in the middle of the football season. Brady said himself he doesn’t follow politics, so I doubt he’s even seen the worst of what Trump has said. His free time seems to be divided up into watching game film and being with his family.

    I still wouldn’t expect Brady to say anything more than “Trump is my friend, but I don’t agree with everything he says.”

  192. johnniemayes says: Dec 18, 2015 3:04 PM

    Brady supports Trump because he knows what a great person he is. Trump is a true American patriot that wants the best for this country. He’s self funding his campaign to show transparency and there’s no doubt in my mind he’ll work 20 hours a day to turn this country around.

    Everyone needs to back off the Muslim comments. Trump is simply suggesting a temporary halt on immigration until we can better vet these refugees. The DHS, DNI, and FBI directors all have said these refugees are a national security risk. The vetting process is weak and needs to be strengthen hence the temporary halt to immigration. It really isn’t that big of deal if you believe in keeping Americans safe.

    nothing wrong with Bradys comments

  194. trollkiller55 says: Dec 21, 2015 6:13 PM

    No surprise, given that Trump is willing to cheat and lie whenever it suits his needs. Birds of a feather.
