During his press conference on Wednesday, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was asked by a reporter what he would do if his children overheard what Donald Trump has called “locker room talk.” Instead of answering the question, Brady just said, “Thank you guys.” He left the podium and ended the press conference.
“Tom you have kids of your own. How would you react if they heard Donald Trump’s version of locker room talk?” the journalist asked. “Thank you guys,” Brady replied.
Mass Live’s Kevin Duffy tweeted that the reporter who asked the question does not usually attend Brady’s press conferences.
Trump has repeatedly defended the comments he made to Billy Bush in a 2005 tape that leaked on October 7 by calling it “locker room talk.” In an op-ed for Vox, former NFL player Chris Kluwe wrote that he has never heard that kind of talk in an NFL locker room.
In the 2005 tape, Trump discussed an attempt to have sex with former Access Hollywood anchor Nancy O’Dell and said he could do whatever he wanted with women because he was a celebrity. “Grab them by the p—y. You can do anything.” Trump said.
Brady and Trump have been friends for years. The two have golfed together and Brady was once seen wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.
Brady has a son, John, with ex-girlfriend Bridget Moynahan, and two children with his wife, model Gisele Bundchen. On October 9, Brady returned from a four-game suspension for the Deflategate scandal. The Patriots play the Bengals at home on October 16.
