Tom Brady is somehow now starting to feel the heat for comments he made about Donald Trump.     Two weeks ago, Brady was asked about Donald Trump winning the 2016 presidential election.

“I hope so. That would be great,” the Patriots quarterback said at the time.

Now the Super Bowl MVP is back-tracking, claiming he hasn’t even been following politics. On Tuesday, during his weekly radio interview with Boston’s WEEI, Brady said those comments were taken out of context.

“I don’t even know what the issues are,” he said. “I haven’t paid attention to politics in a long time. It’s actually not something that I really even enjoy. It’s way off my radar.”

Well Tom, the issues are that you endorsed a guy for President, that you’ve played golf with, yet you don’t follow politics.

“I try to have fun with certain things, you know, but some things a lot of times get taken out of context,” Brady said. “I think you are just more careful with what you say because you don’t want certainly a big headline with you as saying something that’s going to take the attention away from your teammates or what you’re trying to do. …

“When you’re speaking publicly and you’ve got a lot of people listening I think it’s probably in everyone’s best interest in today’s day and age to say as little as possible. That’s just the way it is and I think the way our culture is right now. Everything is really out there.”

Brady said that remark was an “offhand comment” to a reporter that has since taken on a life of its own.
