Boston.com – Donald Trump calls it the ‘Tom Brady Effect.”
That’s the name for what the Republican presidential candidate says is Tom Brady’s effect on his poll numbers.
And his name-dropping of the star Patriots quarterback is now moving from New England and going to Iowa. On Wednesday afternoon, Trump cited Brady’s praise on Iowa’s KXEL’s On Press Row radio show.
“I’m a friend of Tom Brady, very good friend, and he was so nice to me,” Trump said, according to BuzzFeed. “Because he said, you saw what he said a couple weeks ago. He called, he said Trump is the greatest winner. When you get that, and then all of sudden in Massachusetts, I saw that cause Tom is New England, Massachusetts, and all of a sudden in Massachusetts we got poll numbers that were 52 percent.”
“I said, that’s the Tom Brady effect,” Trump said. “When he says great things about you in Massachusetts, you know, that’s pretty much about as good as you can get. He’s an amazing guy, great athlete, great quarterback. It will be interesting to see the playoffs now.”
“The Tom Brady Effect.” I love it. Trump has taken Brady’s awesomeness and reduced it to a scientific principle. He makes a football team better. Makes his wife a better supermodel. Makes businesses better. Neighborhoods. States. Regions. His company signs Jordan Spieth and the kid becomes a superstar. And now he’s done the impossible. Made a right wing billionaire Republican with a New York real estate empire the most popular politician in Massachusetts.
Regardless of your politics, you’ve got to respect The Tom Brady Effect. You can support any candidate you want, but they’re wasting their time and yours if they think they can get elected without trying to get some of The Tom Brady Effect to rub off on them too. And I’m finally going to get the election I wanted. The one-issue campaign about the pressing topic that matters most for the future of America: Tom Brady.
Your move, every other candidate.
