Obama Makes Deflategate Joke While Hosting New England Patriots at the WH

Gronk wonders if O was drunk-

Tom Brady wasn't around to hear President Barack Obama's deflate-gate joke during the New England Patriots' visit to the White House.

The customary trip to the White House for the NFL champions came on Thursday. Brady, the future Hall-of-Fame quarterback, didn't go because of what was described as a "prior family commitment," according to CSNNE.

"I usually tell a bunch of jokes at these events, but with the Patriots in town I was worried that 11 out of 12 of them would fall flat," Obama said to uncomfortable laughter and groans from the Patriots players and coaches behind him.
