New England Patriots quarterback was noticeably missing from the White House ceremony on Thursday. President Barack Obama honored the New England Patriots for winning the SuperBowl. Supposedly, Tom Brady was unable to attend due to a prior family commitment. This didn’t sit too well with ESPN analyst Stephen A. Smith; during his show “The Stephen A. Smith Show” expressed his views.

Smith voiced his opinion by stating “Where the hell was Tom Brady? I really would like to know. When you [Brady] won the Super Bowl in 2001 and George W. Bush was president, you were there. When you won back-to-back Super Bowl titles in 2003 and 2004 with George W. Bush still president, you were there… I mean, is he [Brady] a Republican and don’t want anybody to know?…Why is that you got to show up for George W. Bush- not one, not two, but three times- but you got a family commitment. Not an emergency. A commitment.”

Was it just a family commitment or was this shade to our President Barack Obama?
