On Wednesday, President Donald Trump welcomed the New England Patriots to the White House in celebration of the team’s Super Bowl 51 victory. However, one famous face was notably missing. Star quarterback Tom Brady ducked out of the event, citing “personal family matters,” and Trump had the perfect response.

“I am so happy and excited that our team is being honored at the White House today,” Brady said in a statement. “Our team has accomplished something very special that we are all proud of and will be for years to come. Thank you to the President for hosting this honorary celebration and for supporting our team for as long as I can remember,” he continued.

“In light of some recent developments, I am unable to attend today’s ceremony, as I am attending to some personal family matters. Hopefully, if we accomplish the goal of winning a championship in the future years, we will back on the South Lawn again soon. Have a great day!” he added, declining to elaborate on the exact nature of the family business he had to attend to.

Hours later, it seemed that Trump wasn’t at all pleased that his friend Tom Brady had skipped out on the White House visit. As the president delivered an address honoring the patriots, reporters and commentators couldn’t help but notice that he left one name out while mentioning several other players.

“The Patriots are an incredible organization,” the president said with a majority of the team standing behind him. “And this Super Bowl victory was a complete team effort.”

Trump then cited several individual achievements during the game, including “the big sack by [defensive end] Trey Flowers” and “the incredible catch by [wide receiver] Julian Edelman.” [Source: Western Journalism]

While Brady’s choice to skip his team’s White House visit could very well have been due to pressing family matters since his mother has been suffering from cancer for nearly two years and missed almost all of his games this season because of her illness, his absence may also have been due to the glaring political differences he has with his wife, Gisele Bündchen.

On the same day Brady ducked out of the Patriots’ White House celebration, Bündchen tweeted out a link to the anti-Trump “People’s Climate March” which is scheduled to take place in Washington at the end of the month. It is still unknown whether political differences had anything to do with Brady’s decision, but it’s safe to say Trump wasn’t happy either way.
