President-elect Donald Trump’s ties to the New England Patriots are very well known at this point, especially when it comes to his relationship with quarterback Tom Brady.
“Well, he’s a friend of mine,” Trump said of why he connects with Brady. “He’s a great guy, and he’s a great athlete obviously. But he’s a winner.”
But the big sports-related quote was about Deflategate.
“Well, you know, he played better with the other ball,” Trump said. “I think Tom is totally innocent. I think Tom is, first of all I know him, he’s an honorable guy. And I’m with him all the way.”
Regardless of how you feel about Trump, Patriots fans, he’s pretty clearly a big supporter of your QB, coach and owner.
