Either Anthony Scaramucci knows what to say to make headlines or Tom Brady’s past love life is more fraught than the NFL legend lets on. Either way, the former White House communications director has an eye-grabbing theory as to why the future Hall of Fame quarterback didn’t visit the White House back in April.
Speaking as a guest host on TMZ Live Monday Night, Scaramucci began his debut with none other than a scorching-hot take on the famous QB, a whole five months after he skipped the team’s Super Bowl White House visit, which many took as his wife Giselle Bündchen not wanting the family to show public support for President Trump. Scaramucci believes the decision did come from Brady’s wife but in response to a different Trump than Donald.
“What I did say is somebody should ask Gisele why Tom Brady didn’t show up at the championship party,” said Scaramucci, who served in Trump’s White House for 10 days before he was ousted in July. “My guess is, which is typical … there could be a little bit of jealousy there and protection and possession of Tom Brady, and she probably didn’t want him to go.”
“Maybe there was a relationship between him and Ivanka at some point. Maybe it was someone else, I don’t know. I just think there was a possession that caused a rub.”
Brady cited “personal family matters” when he backed out of the team’s April 19 visit just hours before it took place.
Many Patriots players didn’t make the trip, but Tom’s absence was noteworthy due to his longtime friendship with President Trump. Trump reportedly called him during the campaign to ask for his pledge of support.
However, Brady’s supermodel wife is on the opposite end of the political spectrum, and thus, Brady has kept a low profile in terms of speaking about his friendship with Trump. Trump has done the opposite, openly touting the Patriots as his team, and undoubtedly, he and Brady are still friendly, whether the quarterback will admit it or not.
But when asked if the family supported Trump on Instagram, Giselle responded with a resounding, “NO!”
Thus, Scaramucci’s theory offers a refreshing alternative to boring political reasons for Brady not visiting the White House, and even if pure unfounded speculation, it is a fun story. The provocateur is well on his way to a full-time gig at TMZ.
