President Biden hosted the Super Bowl champs at the White House Tuesday, and Tampa Bay quarterback Tom Brady cracked wise about the election:

  • "Not a lot of people think that we could have won," he said, per CBS Boston. "In fact, I think about 40% of people still don't think we won." After Biden interjected, "I understand that," Brady replied, "You understand that, Mr. President?"
  • Brady also recounted a game last season during which he lost track of downs, notes CNN. "I lost track of one down in 21 years of playing, and they started calling me ‘Sleepy Tom.’ Why would they do that to me?” Biden, tagged during the election with the nickname "Sleepy Joe" by former President Trump, answered, "I don't know."
