(SP) – Gisele Bundchen, the supermodel and wife of Patriots NFL quarterback Tom Brady, broke sports news on CBS This Morning on Wednesday when she disclosed that her husband has had multiple concussions throughout his career — incidents that have never been reported by the Patriots on an injury report, a violation of league protocol. But instead of denying the concussions, Brady confirmed them today and attempted to put them into some context.
“I have had repeated brain trauma and I support Donald Trump,” said Brady. “I hope this now gives people some insight into my political views. I wish it wasn’t the case, but my brain is only able process information on the level of a third grader and so I find President Trump very appealing.”
Bundchen said she realizes Brady’s brain injuries are serious.
“I know it comes with playing athletics,” she told CBS’ Charlie Rose. “I know how it can change a person’s mood and make them depressed and violent. That’s kind of what we knew we were signing up for for this lifestyle. However, I had no idea how bad it could get. When Tom told me he supported Trump, I wanted to give up. But I promised to love him through anything, so I’m trying. But it’s a struggle.”
The supermodel said she does not know why Robert Kraft and Bill Belichick are such staunch Trump supporters.
“They have never had concussion to my knowledge,” said Bundchen. “I guess it’s just that they’re big assholes.”
