Yes, the Left would have it, being friends with the president is reason to be hated on.
From the Washington Examiner:
If you thought Super Bowl week would provide a much-needed respite from our polarized national political climate, think again.
New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady have been getting the third degree on whether they support President Trump.
Not only have the two leading NFL figures been peppered with questions about Trump at their media availabilities, but editorialists and opinion writers have been demanding to know: Are you now or have you ever been a passenger of the Trump train?
Brady in particular has found questions about Trump as persistent and difficult to dodge as the New York Giants pass rush circa 2007.
“Tom Brady no longer gets a pass on his friendship with Donald Trump,” insisted USA Today sports writer Nancy Armour. “Not after this weekend, when the country boiled over in rage and indignation at Trump’s decision to turn America’s back on refugees.”
