    WTF kind of question is that? As if it's some kind of fact that Trump is bad and Hillary is good. Do athletes that support Hillary get grilled about her political embarrassments? Do people that support Bill Clinton get a pass? Because I'm pretty sure he did some shitty things to women. And of course Stephen A has to turn it into a racial issue.."Can you imagine how they would grill LeBron if he supported Trump?" Well, he publicly supported Hillary and I don't recall him being asked questions about Benghazi or how she demonized the women that accused her husband of sexual misconduct.

    If people haven't figured out that the media has a strong leftwing mentality you are clueless.

    Brady should laugh it off and say "Donald is a good friend of mine and we are on to Cincinnati"

    I think Trump's an embarrassment but this is some bullshit. He's the republican nominee and should be treated with the unbiased respect that deserves from the media

    Every media outlet is trying to cash in on the bash Trump game. Regardless of who you're voting for it's so transparent how biased the media is and how brain-washed their followers are.

    It's like the new Thought Police, or Moral Majority.

    It reminds me of the run up to the Iraq War - all the news orgs colluding towards the same thing in a fever pitch instead of just reporting unbiased information.

    Sports and politics need to be separate. One has nothing to do with the other.

    The run-up to Iraq was at a time when people were afraid to oppose anything that looked like we were protecting America.

    You would be labeled 'Unpatriotic'.

    You're either with us or, you're with the terrorists.

    So, many people voted to give Bush a tool to use (Iraq Resolution), if he needed it, probably hoping he wouldn't use it.

    I don't think people voted their conscience.

    He never said he's supporting Trump. ESPN is lying.

    I mean, I get it that she's a super model, but I see her as a bit of a butter face.

    Her body is amazing, but she her face is a bit mannish.

    The thing is the reporter asked Brady "given what Trump said on the tape, what would you say to your daughters?"

    So not only was he condemning Brady's politics, he was asking how he chooses to parent. Brady would have been right to tell that guy to mind his own fucking business.
