NFL quarterback Tom Brady’s brought some jokes to the White House on Tuesday at former President Donald Trump’s expense. And it was unusual since Brady has had a long friendship with the twice-impeached one-term president. Still, it was funny when he made a joke alluding to November 2020 denialism with Trump supporters after Biden secured a victory in the electoral and popular vote. Conservatives got salty after Brady appeared to be friendly with President Joe Biden and mocked the former president. The far-right-wing site Breitbart had a complete meltdown, writing at least three articles about it, calling the NFL star a backstabber.

Breitbart’s editor suggested that Trump has sacrificed for this country, and there is nothing to back that up unless you consider inciting an angry mob to attack the U.S. Capitol a “sacrifice.” There hasn’t been a president that has sacrificed less than Donald J. Trump.
Whatever you think of Trump, watching Tom Brady stab him in the back is disgusting. The mark of a true tragic hero is that even his friends betray him. The man has sacrificed more for this country than Tom Brady — or Joe Biden, for that matter — ever will. https://t.co/HVPNnnbHi3

Never revere sports figures. Really anyone in public life. They are human and will disappoint you. Respect them only as far as what they do, not what they say. Ignore them elsewise.

@TomBrady now that you’ve proven yourself a traitor to a once friend in real President Donald Trump.
I as a former supporter find you to be a disgusting turncoat and a quisling of the highest order and can only wish you the worst as you go forward.

In case you missed it:
Brady: Not a lot of people think we could’ve won. In fact, I think about 40% of the people still don’t think we won
Biden: I understand that pic.twitter.com/0yNlu3d3Cn
