Gisele Bundchen Tweets About Anti-Trump March After Tom Brady Skips White House Visit
On the day the New England Patriots were to visit the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl win, supermodel Gisele Bundchen posted a tweet that made her political stance crystal clear.
Gisele Bundchen’s Anti-Trump Tweet During White House Visit
In a tweet on Wednesday, Bundchen, an ardent environmentalist, shared a link to the Peoples Climate Movement’s upcoming April 29 protest in Washington, D.C. The upcoming demonstration will speak out against Trump’s climate policies. The since-deleted tweet read: “On April 29th in Washington-C.C.-March for climate, jobs, and justice. To change everything, we need everyone.”
Interestingly, Bundchen’s quarterback husband Tom Brady skipped the White House trip on Wednesday, citing “personal family matters” as the reason for his absence.

The Patriots’ star quarterback’s decision to forego the White House celebration may be stemming from his wife’s advice to stop discussing politics in public. Last November, Brady revealed, “I talked to my wife, and she said I can’t talk about politics anymore. I think that’s a good decision, maybe for our family.”
It’s been rumored that Brady and Trump had an ongoing friendship. The two have known each other for years, and the President claimed to have the football star’s vote in the 2016 election.
“Tom Brady, great guy, great friend of mine, great, great champion, unbelievable winner,” Trump said at November rally. “He called today and he said, ‘Donald, I support you, you’re my friend, and I voted for you.’”
When Bundchen’s Instagram followers pressed her for details, the Brazilian model refuted the claims. A commenter asked her if she and Brady were Trump supporters, and she responded with an emphatic, “NO!”
The President appears to have felt the sting of Brady’s absence at yesterday’s celebration. For years Trump had only words of praise for the quarterback, but on Wednesday, he made no mention of Brady, and instead complimented the other players.
One source commented, “When Donald Trump feels betrayed, it’s over.”
