Tom Brady has a life lesson for everyone: Stick with a friend, come hell or high water. While the rest of the world is busy condemning Donald Trump, the Patriots legend has decided to support his longtime friend, regardless of public opinion surrounding his decision.


On Tuesday morning, Brady appeared for his regular interview on WEEI 93.7 FM’s Dennis & Callahan. When asked if Brady supported Trump’s pursuit for presidency, the quarterback had the following to say:

“Can I just stay out of this debate? Donald, he’s a good friend of mine. I’ve known him for a long time. I support all my friends. That’s 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 thought was really cool. That came along with winning the Super Bowl. He’s always invited me to play golf. 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. I mean, going from business, kind of an incredible businessman and then a TV star, and then getting into politics. It’s a pretty different career path. I think that is pretty remarkable.”

Incidentally, Trump last week credited Brady for his strong position in Massachusetts. “In Massachusetts, I’m at 48 percent. You know why? Tom Brady said Trump’s the greatest. He says it to anyone who asks him.”

Some reckon that Trump is using Brady to enhance his popularity in Massachusetts. Brady has just made it clear that he is not only ashamed of his friendship with Trump, but is proud of it.

Tom Brady has just won yet another division title with the New England Patriots. Come February 1, the 38-year-old quarterback could very well be celebrating his fifth Superbowl championship.
