FOXBORO, Mass. — If there was one thing Tom Brady didn't want to talk about during his first press conference at Gillette since serving his suspension, it was politics.
The New England Patriots starting quarterback abruptly ended the meeting with media when one reporter asked about his thoughts on the controversial audio recordings of Donald Trump that have rocked the race for the White House.
"Tom, you have kids of your own, how would your respond if your kids heard Donald Trump's version of 'locker room talk'?" the reporter asked.
Brady took a brief pause, smiled, turned to the other half of the room and said, "Thank you guys. Have a good day."
He immediately left the room.
Brady and the Republican presidential nominee have a friendship. Last year Trump touted the two as "great" friends. Last December Brady told reporters Trump is a "good friend." And last season, Brady also was said to have a red "Make America Great Again" hat in his locker.
During the first six minutes of the press conference, Brady talked about getting back into the routine of the season, as well as applauding the performances of his teammates - particularly the ones he hadn't played in a game with until last Sunday, like Martellus Bennett and Chris Hogan.
We'll have more on Brady's comments and the league honor he recently received tonight on NH1 News at 5:30, 6:30 and 10 on WBIN.
