Donald Trump has formed quite the friendship with New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady over the years through various business ventures and golfing. With the Pats in the Super Bowl for the ninth time, the media has been all over the four-time Super Bowl champion Brady about his political opinion and bond with the president. Tom has not given in to the press’ demands, and did not comment on anything politically related.

A 2015 interview between Trump and New York Times Magazine resurfaced Wednesday (Feb. 1), with Trump ripping NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. The Patriot fan criticized Goodell’s handing of the Ray Rice suspension as well as “Deflategate.” Trump referenced a conversation he had with Bob Kraft about Goodell going back on a “wink” deal he supposedly had with the Patriots, if they agreed to stop fighting Brady’s 4-game suspension.

“The commissioner is a weak guy,” Trump said. “When he made the Ray Rice deal, everybody said: You’re stupid. You’re weak. And it was such a weak deal. So now he’s going overboard with their star, Brady.”
“The commissioner is a dope. He’s a stupid guy.”
Super Bowl week has officially turned into a nightmare for Commissioner Goodell. Check out the rest of the interview here.
