Patriots quarterback Brady baffled by Trump questions (AFP)

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady played down his friendship with President Donald Trump on Monday, a day after steering his team into a Super Bowl showdown with the Atlanta Falcons. Brady, who is preparing for his seventh Super Bowl following the Patriots’ 36-17 win over Pittsburgh on Sunday, told Boston’s WEEI radio he was baffled by questions over his links to Trump. “Why does everybody make such a big deal?” Brady told the “Kirk and Callahan” show.
