Didn't that already happen? Have they placed a mirror in front of her nose and mouth lately to verify?


Pretty much sure that's how they start every day's proceedings.

perhaps the mystery is solved of why Tom Brady canceled going to the White House at the last minute

Gisele Bündchen Tweets Anti-Trump Protest As Tom Brady Bails on White House

Just hours before the White House ceremony began Wednesday, Gisele promoted an anti-Trump protest called The People’s Climate March — saying, “On April 29th in Washington- D.C. – March for climate, jobs, and justice. To change everything, we need everyone.”

hours before the team was to go to the White House on Wednesday he released a statement that “In light of some recent developments, I am unable to attend today’s ceremony, as I am attending to some personal family matters.”

Hey, if you're gonna be pussy whipped, make sure you do it with a supermodel Smile.

I believe Brady is a Trump supporter, he always has been. I know the media in Boston gave him a boatload of shit about it. He is a private guy and he tries to avoid personal controversy. If he had gone the media up there would have slayed him. Does that make him a wuss for not being outspoken about his beliefs? Maybe. Sometimes discretion is the better part of valor and not every "celebrity" needs to be in your face on how they lean politically. Plenty of hollywood conservatives do the exact same thing. Do I wish some were more outspoken? Of course. But some people just don't need to splash their lives all over facespace like most liberals do.

I'm glad Bill and Mr. Kraft went, that right there is a strong message. Kraft and Trump couldn't be further apart politically I believe but they have a mutual respect and are friends. And coach Darth Hoodie? Well he just gives no fucks.

I smiled at the irony that the shirt Trump was given is a "Patriot" shirt. Despite his faults I believe Trump is a patriot who loves this country first and foremost. A dam sight better than the last squatter we had in the peoples' house.

It would have been better to give him a Texans shirt, but they didn't get invited somehow.

When you had the votes, we did things your way. Now, we have the votes and you will be doing things our way. This lesson in political reality from Lyndon B. Johnson

"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible." - Justice Janice Rogers Brown

Going to the White House which the winning Superbowl team traditionally does is being "outspoken" in your politically beliefs? I don't know what you're talking about. Not going for political reasons is him being more outspoken. It's frankly pathetic if he didn't go because his liberal, know nothing wife told him not to. Pathetic. With a capital "P."

I disagree. He is a private guy who does not like controversy. Whether or not his wife factored into his decision we will never know. So I guess when your wife and you disagree you just tell her to fuck off your a man and will do what you want? So in your eyes he is less of a man because he does not shout his beliefs from the rooftops? He didn't tell her to go make him a sandwich and shut the fuck up? He does not go on social media and weigh in on every hot button topic every second like every liberal loon does? He did not want to turn his visit into something political so it's bad? Quite frankly the politics would have overshadowed the visit and he avoided it. Don't blame that on him blame that on the media.

I would say yes, he is less of a man if he turned down the honor of an invitation to the white house with his team due to his wife's policy views. She wasn't invited. She didn't have to go. Being honored with your team at the white house is not a political statement. Bailing at the last minute is a political statement, even if it was not his politics driving the decision.

I'm a Patriots and Tom Brady fan. I think he made a mistake not going and I also think that action makes more of a statement than going. Maybe he really did have another reason he couldn't make the visit, but I'm disappointed he didn't go.

ETA, sorry to extend a topic that's not really part of this thread.

Given that TB is a "spokesman" for the Patriots and the invite is both an honor for the man and a duty as the spokesman, he should have gone.

I know we will never be rid of politics, but some things while looking like taking a position and standing tall, while in the short term, make one look like Superman on the mountain top, cape flowing and music blaring, fade and become just another person showing their ass.

And the last image people remember.

Long ago and far away, if one was invited to the WH, one dropped everything and went. It was unacceptably crass to not go. Simple good manners.

At the same time and place, one never revealed the content of private conversations with the President, no matter what.

Long ago and far away was a strange and lonely place.

Would people feel the same way (hating on an athlete for bailing on a presidential invite) if it had happened a year ago? If an athlete bailed on a meet and greet with zippy because he had a conservative wife that strongly disliked the president?

I suspect, in that case, people would probably be happy about it. . .



Edit to clarify my point: I think most people here have a problem with they guy, not for ditching the president, but for ditching President Trump. Had it been zippy, most of us would rejoice over the snub. So, all the high-sounding notions of him 'representing the team and how he had a duty to attend the presidential invitation' are moot, IMO.



No arsenal is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.
