Here we thought fake black guy Shaun King was the biggest embarrassment at the New York Daily News. Now he’s got some competition from this tool. In a ridiculous screed against New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, this moron emphatically declares anyone who’s a friend with or who voted for Donald Trump is a racist, bigoted misogynist.
Yes, hard to fathom why this paper is in the tank and can’t find a buyer.
Tom Brady may know how to beat a blitz or pick apart zone coverage, but he somehow doesn’t see why calling and congratulating Donald Trump is a big news story. Or why it’s a problem.
“Why does that make such a big deal? I don’t understand that,” Brady said on WEEI Monday.
Brady didn’t quite confirm the president’s story of the congratulatory phone call from the Patriots quarterback, but came the closest he has to doing so by saying, “I have called him, yes, in the past. Sometimes he calls me, sometimes I call him.”
Brady’s case for why it wasn’t significant was that he’s known Trump for a long time.
“I always try to keep it in context. For 16 years you know someone, before maybe he was in the position that he was in,” Brady said. “And he’s been very supportive of me for a long time. It’s just a friendship. I’ve got a lot of friends. I call a lot of people.”
“If you know someone, it doesn’t mean you agree with everything that they say or do,” the Super Bowl quarterback added.
That’s not good enough.
That’s not good enough for some snot-nosed punk with a byline who was probably in diapers when Brady began his NFL career, but whatever, we’ve got some guilt by association, so let’s run with it.
You don’t have to agree with everything your friends say or do. Or even, potentially, everything that friends who are politicians say or do.
But when it comes to Trump’s biggest faults — racism, bigotry and misogyny — you don’t get to pick and choose.
Of course there’s no basis for these slurs, but hey, we’re living in the days of fact-free “journalism,” so YOLO!
If you’re friends with Trump, you’re friends with racism, bigotry and misogyny. Just like if you voted for Trump, you voted for racism, bigotry and misogyny.
OK, champ, whatever you say, but it looks like you’re on an island of your own misery here:
@SethWalderNYDN Such a piece of garbage article…Unfortunately, this is what journalism has been reduced to now.

Actually, garbage is more respected.
@SethWalderNYDN I am no fan of Trump. I am also the biggest Brady hater there is. This is ridiculous. Nobody *has* to comment on politics.

The media has made us root for Trump. Now they’re making us root for Tom Brady. Good job, guys.
@SethWalderNYDN I'm not even a trump supporter and this is a piss poor article. Total nonsense

@SethWalderNYDN – Are you the friendship police? The people smashing windows in DC and assaulting cops are YOUR friends.

So two can play this game. We can now declare cub reporter Seth Walder a friend of criminals and anarchists.

@SethWalderNYDN I'm not a huge Trump guy but articles like this piss me off to the point where I'm happy he got elected

Not surprising, but we can’t find a supportive comment for this clown.
