Donald Trump wants to make the first month of the Patriots’ schedule great again.
The Republican presidential candidate did his best to pander to the crowd at a rally in advance of the Rhode Island primary, declaring in the wake of the day’s #Deflategate news: “Leave Tom Brady alone.”
Via the Associated Press, Trump also said that Brady was a “great guy,” and “it’s enough.”
Many would likely agree with the second point, regardless their political affiliation. After a federal appeals court upheld the league’s four-game suspension of the quarterback, there are plenty who would argue for a more limited government.
At the moment, none of them, however, are in Arizona, Miami, Houston or Buffalo.
Trump and Brady have played golf together, and Brady had a “Make America Great Again” hat in his locker last season. But he has since tried to downplay his remarks, and keep the conversation about football.
