A British Hollywood actor abruptly jumped head-first into the political realm this weekend by seemingly criticizing New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady for his political views.
When asked during an interview with Variety magazine whom he supports going into the upcoming Super Bowl, actor Daniel Radcliffe appeared to suggest that he supports the Los Angeles Rams over the New England Patriots because Brady’s an avid Trump supporter.
“Rams! Cause, like, the whole world is rooting against the Patriots,” he initially replied without explaining what he meant, though it should be noted that he said this while giggling. “Sorry.”
When the interviewer asked whether Brady should retire, he replied, “No! But he should stop winning things. Take that MAGA hat out your locker.”
A big deal was made back in 2015 when it was discovered that Brady keeps a red “Make America Great Again” hat in the top shelf of his locker.
“I feel like that was the moment we’re all like, ‘Oh, come on, dude!’ We all wanna be, you know, ‘you’re awesome,’ and behind you, and don’t put that in there. So yeah, Rams,” Radcliffe added.
t’s unclear whether he was being serious, given as he was chortling the whole time. He does however have a history of being a somewhat raging anti-Trumper.
Flashback to the summer of 2016, right after the United Kingdom voted in favor of Brexit and right around the time that a deranged man killed a member of Parliament.
“I sort of think Donald Trump might not be as ideologically pure as Voldemort,” Radcliffe said in September of 2016 to Sky News when asked by Rowling’s tweet. “My thinking on Trump is that he feels like more of an opportunist – I don’t know how much of this stuff he’s saying he actually really believes.”
“He hides behind the sort of thing of, ‘Oh I’m just an entertainer’ and all that but that comparison is certainly not without its merit.”
While this criticism might not be as searing as that of Rowling, who issues patently insane and always deceitful remarks about Trump almost daily, it’s still quite harsh.
It’s perhaps why so many of Trump’s fervent fans are not at all happy about the actor’s latest remarks.
