NFL superstar Tom Brady popped off more than his fair share of jokes at the president during his visit to the White House for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Super Bowl win.
Brady joked that he was mockingly called “Sleepy Tom” whenever he lost track of which down it was during an offensive drive in front of President Biden. He then went on to quip about the resistance that Biden’s 2020 election win faced, joking that only about 40% of people believe that Tampa won the Super Bowl.
Brady said, in front of President Joe Biden, that he was mockingly called “Sleepy Tom” when he lost track of which down it was during an offensive drive. The QB was referencing Trump’s moniker for Biden during the 2020 election, “Sleepy Joe.”
The NFL star also quipped about resistance to Biden’s 2020 win, joking that only about 40% of people really believe Tampa won the Super Bowl.
“Not a lot of people think that we could have won,” Brady said. “In fact, I think about 40% of people still don’t think we won. You understand that, Mr. President?”
“I understand that,” Biden responded.
“They started calling me ‘Sleepy Tom,’” Brady further mocked, joking about forgetting which down it was during a game against the Chicago Bears.
Trump dubbed Biden “Sleepy Joe” during his 2020 reelection campaign, mocking Biden’s “low energy.”

Back in 2015, Brady sparked outrage for having a pro-Trump “Make America Great Again” hat in his locker.
The Daily Wire reported:
During an interview in 2015, a Make America Great Again (MAGA) hat was spotted in then-Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s locker. This sparked a flurry of desperately angry tweets and responses from Hollywood, and all of those on the Left, shaking with disbelief.
Brady did not shy away from his friendship with Trump in response. “Can I just stay out of this debate? Donald is a good friend of mine. I have known him for a long time. I support all my friends,” the QB said.
