Gisele Tweets About An Anti-Trump Rally As Tom Brady Skips White House Visit
As the news was breaking that Tom Brady would not be in attendance at the New England Patriots visit to the White House on Wednesday, his wife Gisele Bündchen tweeted a link to an anti-Trump climate rally.
“March for climate, jobs, and justice. To change everything, we need everyone,” she said in the tweet, including a link to the People’s Climate Movement website with information about an upcoming march on April 29th.
Around the same time Gisele sent the tweet, Brady told ESPN’s Mike Reiss he would not be attending the Patriots ceremonial White House visit with the president due to “personal family matters.” (RELATED: Tom Brady Backs Out Of White House Visit Due To ‘Family Matters’)
“I am so happy and excited that our team is being honored at the White House today. Our team has accomplished something very special that we are all proud of and will be for years to come,” Brady said in a statement hours before the team’s visit.
“Thank you to the President for hosting this honorary celebration and for supporting our team for as long as I can remember,” he added. “In light of some recent developments, I am unable to attend today’s ceremony, as I am attending to some personal family matters. Hopefully, if we accomplish the goal of winning a championship in the future years, we will [be] back on the South Lawn again soon. Have a great day!” (RELATED: Trump: The Pundits Were Wrong About The Patriots Too)
The march that Bündchen tweeted about falls on the 100th day of the Trump administration. It will take place in front of the gates of the White House “to show the world and our leaders that we will resist attacks on our people, our communities and our planet,” the website explains.
“Everything we have struggled to move forward in the United States is in peril. Our loved ones feel under siege, and those in power in Washington are advancing a dark and dangerous vision of America that we know is untrue,” the website states. “To change everything, we need everyone.”
Brady backed out of a White House trip back when Obama was president, so many are hesitant to dismiss his “family matters” excuse as a cover for a political move. Others simply see it as a husband trying to please his supermodel wife.
The fact that Brady gave in to Gisele on this makes him so much more likable to me. Totally normal married guy move.
