Tom Brady is here to tell the world: Fake news.
The Buccaneers won Super Bowl 55, and they did it handily, downing the Chiefs 31-9.
While some Americans can deny the victory all the want, the proof and truth is there for all to see, and Brady took a few minutes to throw some high-level political humor while the Buccaneers visited the White House on Tuesday.
Brady: Not a lot of people think we could’ve won. In fact, I think about 40% of the people still don’t think we won
Biden: I understand that pic.twitter.com/0yNlu3d3Cn

“But we found our rhythm, we got on a roll. Not a lot of people think that we could have won,” Brady said, before delivering the zinger.
“In fact, I think that about 40 percent of people still don’t think we won.”

President Joe Biden replies: “I understand that.” Laughs were had.
Brady’s provocative humor is a suggestion of certain sects of Americans that believe Donald Trump rightfully won the 2020 United States presidential election, despite Biden winning the vote.
Brady delivered another joke: “Personally, it’s nice for me to be back here. We had a game in Chicago that I forgot what down it was. I forgot one down in 21 years of playing. And they started calling me ‘Sleepy Tom.’ Why would they do that to me?” Brady jests.
“Sleepy Tom,” of course, is a nod to the former president’s derogatory “Sleepy Joe” nickname he used for Biden while on the campaign trail.
Brady has been living the life since landing in Tampa: The 43-year-old QB won his seventh championship ring, and he did it all on a torn MCL. Being able to joke with the leader of the free world is another notch in his belt.
We know the jokes were all in good fun, but, please, Tom … stick to sports.
