Tom Brady Will Not Be With The Patriots Today When They Visit The White House

Taylor McCloud — Pats Militia

In 2015, Tom Brady skipped out on the Patriots’ visit to the White House after winning Super Bowl XLIX. His claims that he was unable to make the trip because of prior commitments were widely scrutinized, especially after he was spotted both at Gillette Stadium and an Apple Store in New York City on the day of the visit, but that was his story and he stuck too it. Whether or not fans chose to believe him was up to them. I, for one, do not, but that’s neither here nor there.

What is here and there, though, is today’s visit to the White House — an event that Tom Brady will not be partaking in.


Yes, you read that correctly. No, your eyes are not fooling you. Tom Brady will not be with the Patriots today when they visit the nation’s capital.

Now, other Patriots have already decided to skip out on today, and have garnered attention because of it, but names like Devin McCourty and Chris Long do not carry the same weight that Tom Brady does. Every time Brady does anything, it’s a big deal, and today will be no different.

Because he opted to not visit Obama & co. in 2015, and because he has public connections with Donald Trump, many thought Brady was all but guaranteed to be seen cheesing on the steps of the White House. Obviously, that is not the case. However, I think there is more than one way to analyze exactly why Brady will not be there today.

You could take everything at face value. You know, look at Brady’s statement above, and these reports from Patriots’ beat guys and think everything is what it seems.

You could think this is some huge political thing, but I don’t know how much sense that would make. If Brady skipped visiting Obama in 2015, why would he skip Trump in 2017? Especially if he’s buddy-buddy with the Donald like everyone who hates the Pats claims he is.

Or, you could think along the same lines as me — I don’t think Tom Brady was going to visit the White House at all.

Even though Jeff Howe said he was 100% planning on it, and even though Brady said he hopes to get another opportunity to celebrate on the South Lawn, I honestly do not believe he was ever going to be there today.

If there’s one thing we can be sure of, it’s that Tom Brady does not like attention. At least, he doesn’t like unwanted attention. If he’s out there being a nut on the football field or modeling some Ugg boots, then he obviously wants people to look at him. But, when he’s making an active effort to deflect attention, the last thing he wants is a million eyeballs following him.

And guess what? If he had gone to Washington today, there would have been millions and millions and millions of eyeballs on him. After he didn’t attend in 2015, an appearance next to Donald Trump today would have made him the center of attention for days to come. Unless it’s for football reasons, Tom Brady absolutely does not want that. I know that probably sounds stupid or whatever, but it’s the truth.

Brady spent the entire season deflecting questions about Trump. Why would he willingly do something to bring a shitstorm of the same questions upon himself? Exactly, he wouldn’t. I understand that visiting the White House is an honor, and something a lot of athletes salivate at the thought of, but Brady’s done it before. (And I’m sure he can visit whenever he wants. If Trump’s presidential campaign taught me anything, it’s that no one, not even me, has a bigger hard-on for Tom Brady than Donald Trump.) He knows what it’s like. He doesn’t need to go there again and suffer the unwanted consequences that are sure to come his way as a result.

Now, I know there are going to be some people who read this theory and take it as me saying Brady used his sick mother as an excuse to get out of this White House visit. I don’t want that to happen. I’m not thinking like that at all. We’ve all read about his mother. We know what’s going on there. I fully believe Brady had family matters to attend to. I just think those family matters helped him make the decision he was already leaning towards making.

Like I said, I don’t think Brady was going to be in Washington today, regardless of circumstance. I think I’ve made this point upwards of six times throughout this piece already, but visiting the White House would have brought on attention like you’d read about. Tom Brady doesn’t want that.

Go Pats.
