Trump credits alleged cheater Tom Brady with his "48%" polling numbers in Massachusetts. In September, before the Patriots had lost two consecutive games, a photo of Brady's locker featured a Trump campaign hat prominently. Brady then said "it would be great" if Trump were elected president. Later, Brady said his comment was taken out of context, declining to officially endorse Trump, yet failing to say he supported someone else. The quaterback later touted his long friendship with Trump, proclaiming he's "fun." Trump said it was important and brave that Brady took his side, since Hillary Clinton's campaign may try to discredit him by comparing him to less accomplished* players.
