Tom Brady, who said earlier this month that a Trump presidency “would be great” because Donald Trump gave him a free hat once and is “a hell of a lot of fun to play golf with,” has since chastised the media for taking his opinions seriously.

In an interview with Boston radio station WEEI, Brady reminisced about the golden days of football, when nobody paid attention to the batshit ideas of their favorite players. Via Politico:

“It’s just a different world than when I started in professional football. Even an off-handed comment like that, like you said, that people may run with; and I understand why people do run with it because you get the clicks and that type of stuff. It’s just people doing their job. A comment like that, I try to have fun with certain things.”

Brady continued: “Whatever I vote is going to be my own personal choice based on how I feel. I don’t even know what the issues are. I haven’t paid attention to politics in a long time. It’s actually not something that I really even enjoy. It’s way off my radar.”

NICE TRY, BRADY!!! Nothin’ Trumpier than bald ignorance.
