Pictures circulating on the internet appear to show the Patriots' crowd being much larger.
Spicer announced, “Trump’s crowd was several million times larger than Tom Brady’s. President Trump is clearly more popular than Brady and the Patriots. Any polls or reports to the contrary should be considered ‘fake news’.” Spicer added, “It’s not the Boston police department’s place to be making wild allegations about crowd size, they should be focused on deporting rapists and drug dealers from Mexico.”
Trump earlier had made a bizarre tweet disparaging Brady’s wife, claiming his wife was superior. When asked about this tweet, Spicer replied, “A president is clearly going to get a hotter wife than a quarterback, that’s just the way it is. Any suggestion that this isn’t so is simply liberal media bias.”
When coach Bill Belichick was asked from the parade route whether he thought this crowd was larger than Trump’s, he replied, “We’re on to the draft.” Asked whether he thought Trump’s concern about it odd, he answered, “We’re on to the draft.”
