Are the Buccaneers going to the White House?

Bryan Glazer said the Bucs got their invite to the White House because the 2020 team "did the impossible," but also called the Bucs' White House visit an honor "20 years in the making." ... Fortunately, the team's incredible journey in 2020 did include a trip to Washington, D.C., for which Arians was very grateful. Buccaneers.comTampa Bay Buccaneers Visit President Biden at White House

How many times has Brady been to the White House?

Actor Anthony Anderson, filling in for Jimmy Kimmel as host of “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” spotted a moment at the White House that won’t make the former guy very happy. 

When President Joe Biden welcomed the Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday, quarterback Tom Brady cracked a joke at Donald Trump’s expense

“Not a lot of people think that we could’ve won,” Brady said, referring to the team’s slow start. “In fact, I think about 40 percent of the people still don’t think we won.” 

Brady has golfed with Trump and called him a “good friend” in the past, but Anderson said that’s probably about to change.  

“I guess he’s not golfing at Mar-a-Lago anytime soon,” the comic cracked.

‘About 40% of the people still don’t think we won': Tom Brady zings 2020 election deniers as Bucs visit White House

The Bucs visited the White House on Tuesday to celebrate their Super Bowl win over the Kansas City Chiefs. When Brady was at the podium, he mentioned how few people thought the Buccaneers could win. And then got in a joke about the people who continue to incorrectly believe that Biden didn't win the November presidential election. 

"Not a lot of people think that we could have won," Brady said. "In fact, I think about 40% of the people still don't think we won."

"I understand that," Biden quickly replied.

"You understand that, Mr. President?" Brady then asked.

You can view the exchange in full below. 

Brady has been relatively tight-lipped about his relationship with Trump in recent years — his wife Gisele Bundchen asked him to not talk politics in 2016 — as Trump became the most polarizing president in decades. Brady said in April that Trump had wanted him to speak at the 2016 Republican National Convention, an invitation that he declined. 

“He would call me after games, ‘I watched your game Tom, let’s play golf together,’” Brady told Howard Stern in April of 2020. “So 2003, 2004, that’s kind of the way it was. He would come up to our games and stand on the sideline and cheer for the Patriots. He had a way of connecting with people, and still does. But the whole political aspect came, and I got brought into a lot of those things because it was so polarizing around the election time. It was uncomfortable to me. You can’t undo things — not that I would undo a friendship — but the political support is totally different than the support of a friend.”

For Trump, a man who seems to view loyalty to him as the ultimate sign of friendship, Brady's joke on Tuesday may burn a little hot. Even if his team's Super Bowl win and Biden's election win are both incontrovertible.
