Donald Trump Jr. Has A Message About Tom Brady

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn’t seem like they had much of a chance to win the Super Bowl back in January 2021, even if it had superstar quarterback Tom Brady in their squad (via NBC Sports). So it’s not surprising that the hashtag #GOAT (greatest of all time) began trending on social media after the team won their first title, and Brady won his seventh — the same year he officially became the oldest man to win the Super Bowl.

Donald Trump Jr. decided to weigh in with his thoughts about the game on Twitter too, and he sent a social media shoutout to the quarterback, saying: “There is no question anymore as to who the GOAT is. It wasn’t coaching it was Brady and it always was. That argument was settled tonight when he took a team no one thought could win anything to the #SuperBowl and won at 43 years of age. Amazing. Well done Tom. #Brady.”

While it seems like a positive message on first read, here’s why it didn’t sit so well with Twitter.

Social media was unhappy with Don Jr.'s callout

Social media took Donald Trump Jr. to task for the tweet about Tom Brady; one social media user pointed out that the Buccaneers’ victory was, in fact, the end result of several factors, saying, “Actually it’s a combination of Brady and the coaching and teamwork. And I am pretty sure he’d say the same.”

Another social media user reminded Don Jr. that Brady’s former New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick had history with his father Donald Trump, writing, “Dude…you said this because Bill Belichick turned down your Dad’s bribe of the Presidential Medal of Freedom last year – not saying you’re analysis is wrong here, but your bitterness is transparent.” 

A third Twitter user reminded Don Jr. that “During an interview with Howard Stern, TB12 said his friendship with your father was “uncomfortable” and that they haven’t talked in awhile. Brady doesn’t want anything to do with you or your dad or your family.”

Most social media users also took the opportunity to troll Donald Jr., saying that it might be too early to congratulate the Bucs because their win was “premature,” and that the Chiefs had every reason to believe they could challenge the results. It appears even sports escape political reality these days.
