    New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is done talking about his "good friend" Donald Trump.

    Brady, who has said he considers Trump a close friend, generated headlines last year when he said it would be "great" if Trump became president. Reporters have even spotted a red Trump "Make America Great Again" hat in Brady's locker.

    "He gave me a hat, I thought that was a nice thing," Brady said on Boston's Dennis & Callahan radio show in December 2015.

    After fielding questions from the media at Wednesday's press conference at Gillette Stadium, Brady was faced with one last query from necn reporter Jonathan Choe who pressed the quarterback on how he would respond if his kids heard Trump's version of "locker room talk."

    Brady smiled, and said "Thank you guys. Have a good day," before walking away from the podium.

    The Republican presidential nominee has dismissed an 11-year-old "Access Hollywood" video, in which he makes controversial statements about women, as "locker room talk."

    Almost immediately, Brady's curt response to the Trump question generated conversation on Boston sports talk radio stations and social media.

    The All-Pro quarterback has known the reality TV star-turned-presidential candidate since 2002, when Brady served as a judge for one of Trump's beauty pageants.

    Trump has also been supportive of Brady, defending him during "Deflategate" and praising the quarterback repeatedly during the campaign trail.
