On Tuesday, the Super Bowl champions Tampa Bay Buccaneers visited President Biden at the White House with quarterback Tom Brady at the center of the event.
Brady, a friend and supporter of Donald Trump, used the spotlight to make some jokes about President Biden and added a bit of election humor to the celebration.
Think of Tom Brady as the only quarterback to win a Super Bowl under four presidents: George W. Bush, Barack Obama, Donald Trump, and Joe Biden.

Brady: ‘I think 40% of people still don’t think we win’
“These guys are an incredible bunch of guys,” Brady said of his fellow Buccaneers and their Super Bowl win over the Chiefs.
“It didn’t look very good at one point, we were 7-5 years old and we were struggling a bit as the president alluded to,” continued Brady. “But we found our rhythm and we got going.”
“Not many people think we could have won,” Brady said. “In fact, I think about 40% of the people still don’t think we won.”
“I get it,” Biden replied, with everyone laughing.

Brady and Biden were obviously joking about Americans doubting the validity of the 2020 presidential election, and Brady specifically mentioned a poll percentage.
And that wasn’t Brady’s only joke.

Brady: ‘They started calling me’ Sleepy Tom ‘
Brady then made another joke: “I lost track of one in 21 years playing and they started calling me ‘Sleepy Tom,'” Brady said, referring to how former President Donald Trump referred to Biden as “Sleepy Joe” during the election. .
“Why would they do that to me?” Brady asked.
This was Brady’s first trip to the White House since 2005, when he won his third Super Bowl with the Patriots.
When the Patriots were invited to the White House in 2015 and 2017, Brady did not attend along with the rest of his team.
The failure of Brady to visit Washington, DC in 2017 infuriated Trump, apparently believing that Brady’s absence would make him look bad, according to the From the Washington Post Josh Dawsey and Wesley Lowery.
Brady did not go to Donald Trump’s White House in 2017 when the #Patriots visited.
He also did not go to the Trump White House in 2019, along with the rest of the team.

“Trump got angry in April 2017 when Tom Brady said he planned to skip visiting the White House with the Patriots, huddle angrily with his aides and even call Patriots owner Robert Kraft,” WaPo reported in 2018.
The story continued: “A former senior administration official described a chaotic scene unfolding in the heart of America as Trump returned from an event in Wisconsin.”
“Trump made a series of calls and asked his aides to help fix the situation, concerned that Brady’s absence would reflect poorly on him,” the Post noted.
