Buccaneers Visit the White House

Washington, D.C. (Washington Insider Magazine) –   On Tuesday, Tampa Bay Buccaneers visited President Joe Biden at the White House. Quarterback Tom Brady was among the group who made the trip.

“It’s nice for me to be back here,” Brady said.

Brady – who was the Super Bowl winning quarterback – “got laughs from Biden and others in attendance by jokingly comparing those who deny the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election with people who have doubted the Buccaneers.”

Brady said, “Not a lot of people think that we could have won; in fact, about 40 percent of people still don’t think we won. Do you understand that, Mr. President?”

“Sleepy Tom” was a name that Brady conjured “after he momentarily lost track of things during a game against the Chicago bears.” This was alluding to “Sleepy Joe” that Donald Trump called President Biden during the campaign.

Biden praised the Buccaneers for overcoming the discouraging start of the season. He congratulated them for coming together for the playoffs and eventually winning the Super Bowl. It had to have been a challenging season amid the pandemic.

Biden said,“The Buccaneers are a testament to the fact that it’s never too late to come together and achieve extraordinary things.”

Tuesday’s event with the Buccaneers came just as President Biden told of someone in the White House who had been vaccinated and now tested positive for Covid-19. This individual had come into contact with Texas legislative members who came to the White House “to prevent passage of new voting restrictions in the state.”

President Biden turned to the Buccaneers and pleaded with them to get vaccinated if they already had not.

Biden, who is the oldest person to have been elected president, also pointed out that Brady and Bruce Arians “were the oldest quarterback and head coach to helm a Super Bowl-winning team.”

Biden said, “As far as I’m concerned, there’s nothing wrong with being the oldest guy to make it to the mountaintop.”
