BOSTON (AP) New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady says his comments that he hopes Donald Trump will win the presidency were taken out of context and an example of why he tries to say as little as possible when speaking publicly.
Brady said during an interview with WEEI-FM radio in Boston (http://bit.ly/1L2fn3x ) that his vote is going to be his own personal choice based on how he feels. He says he hasn't paid attention to politics in a long time and doesn't know what the issues are.
The clarification comes after Brady displayed a red ''Make America Great Again'' hat from the Trump campaign in his locker while speaking with reporters earlier this month, the same day as a Republican presidential debate. When asked whether he thinks Trump has what it takes to win the presidency, Brady said: ''I hope so. It would be great. There would be a putting green on the White House lawn, I'm sure of that.''
