Why Tom Brady’s ‘Soft’ Trump’s Roast at Biden’s White House Was Actually ‘Deeply Mean’

President Biden hosted the Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the White House on Tuesday, both Biden and star quarterback Tom Brady “wearing sunglasses and a grin,” writes Annie Linskey. The Washington Post. “It was, in many ways, the most traditional presidential rites—a championship team’s visit to the White House, allowing athletic stars and political leaders to bask in each other’s all-American glow”—and in this case, “the point was to be normal, traditional, even boring.”

At the same time, “it was a scene straight out of a Donald Trump nightmare, and arguably the worst day of Donald Trump’s life,” writes Jonathan Chait. New York. “To understand why such an anodyne scene would have such a painful effect on a man who has endured adversity such as bankruptcy, losing a presidential election, two impeachments and countless legal setbacks, one has to understand his peculiar psychology. Here, In rough order, the hierarchy of Trump’s needs is: 1. To be treated like a winner 2. To hang out with celebrities 3. Not to be laughed at 4. To get Tom Brady’s specific approval to get.”

According to Trump, he and Brady are both “winners,” Chait explains. But now, after “avoiding the Trump White House on a flimsy pretense” after his 2017 Super Bowl win, “Brady went to Biden’s” and “used his appearance to make fun of the candidate he defeated.” .” Brady made two jokes at Trump’s expense, one about Trump’s refusal to accept his defeat and the second about being called “Sleepy Tom” after forgetting what was going on during a game.

While the “Sleepy Tom” joke “sounds softer than the first joke, it’s actually much more deeply mean,” Chait argues. “According to Trump, Biden is a pathetic loser, and he is the winner. Like Tom Brady. But here was Brady, who turned the whole hierarchy upside down. Biden is the winner, just like Brady, and winners are now guys called sleepy by the Losers for making a small mistake on the way to their triumph.”

Being mocked by Tom Brady wasn’t the only reason Trump might have preferred to avoid the Tuesday news. His longtime friend and adviser, Thomas Barrack, was arrested for allegedly being an unregistered foreign agent, and Jeff Bezos, the much wealthier nemesis he often attacked, flew into space and, when he exited his rocket, he declared it’s “best day ever.”
