AceShowbiz - Did President Donald Trump snub Tom Brady during the Patriots' visit to the White House? Many believed that the POTUS snubbed his "good friend" by not mentioning the latter's name once in his 10-minute congratulatory speech to the team for their greatest comeback win in Super Bowl history.
"Whether you're trying to win a Super Bowl or rebuild our country, as Coach Bill Belichick would say, there are no days off," Trump began. The president then jumped into the story of how Belichick wrote an encouraging letter to him during the contentious presidential election.
"He toned it way up! It was much better. Much better," Trump said during the Wednesday, April 19 ceremony. "He made that the greatest letter and I did very well in that state." He then gave a special shout out to Danny Amendola while awkwardly keeping turning around to look at the latter, only to find out that he wasn't in attendance.
The 70-year-old went on to call out a list of the Patriots players including Trey Flowers, Julian Edelman, Marcus Cannon, Matt Slater and Malcolm Mitchell to praise their performance. But there's no mention of Brady, who missed the White House ceremony due to a "family matter."
Later in the day, Brady took to Instagram to give a clue of what the family matter might be. The quarterback shared on the social media a photo in honor of his parents' 48th wedding anniversary. "For 48 years, my sisters and I have had the best example of love, friendship and compassion in our lives! And it's so special to celebrate together! I love you mom and dad!" the athlete wrote in the caption.
