Kirsters Baish| It’s no surprise that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is the guy that other NFL players love to hate. He is the epitome of an all-American guy, and he’s living the American dream. Best of all, he’s not self-entitled. He’s good looking, married to a supermodel, and has five Super Bowl wins in his repertoire. He’s played in seven Super Bowls, and he also holds multiple Super Bowl records, which include four MVPs. The guy has even been in movies and on television shows. He appeared in Ted2 and on the hit show, Entourage.
Brady has an (almost) spotless record. He was suspended in four games for his part in Deflategate, which was a divisively huge issue.
This week, the Patriots were playing in Foxborough in a Super Bowl LI rematch against the Atlanta Falcons. Before the game, Brady was seen meeting with military members on the field. All of the disrespectful anthem protesting athletes were put to grave shame.
As reported by 247 Sports:
Prior to kickoff of their Super Bowl LI rematch with the Falcons in Week 7, the Patriots quarterback gave a number of military members a high-five as they were honored on the field. The 200 military members were guests of the team as they donated tickets for them to come to the game.

The Patriots won the game 23-7.
It isn’t a big secret that Tom Brady has been a supporter of President Trump. It was even reported that a MAGA hat was seen in his locker during the 2015 season.
ABC News had reported:
“I’ve known him since 2002 when I judged one of his beauty pageants … so I’ve known him for a long time,” Brady said. “He always gives me a call and different types of motivational speeches at different times.”

The interesting thing with all of the talk about the championship-winning teams greeting Trump at the White House after a victory is that Brady didn’t show up when the Patriot went earlier in the year.
CNN had reported that Tom Brady wouldn’t go with his teammates to the White House. The team was being honored by President Trump. It was explained that Brady had “personal family matters” to attend to, and that is why he didn’t come for the ceremony.
In a statement provided by the Patriots to CNN, Brady stated:
“I am so happy and excited that our team is being honored at the White House today. Our team has accomplished something very special that we are all proud of and will be for years to come. Thank you to the President for hosting this honorary celebration and for supporting our team for as long as I can remember. In light of some recent developments, I am unable to attend today’s ceremony, as I am attending to some personal family matters. Hopefully, if we accomplish the goal of winning a championship in the future years, we will be back on the South Lawn again soon.”
Brady didn’t give any more details on the family matter he was attending to. The Bleacher Report stated that Brady’s mother had been fighting cancer and was not able to come to any of his games during the 2016 season, but she did make it to the Super Bowl.
It’s great to see Tom Brady putting all of the anthem kneelers to shame and representing America.
