“I’ve received a number of inquiries relative to a note that I wrote Donald on Monday,” Belichick said. “Our friendship goes back many years.”
He continued: “I think anybody that has spent more than five minutes with me knows I’m not a political person. My comments are not politically motivated — the friendship and loyalty to Donald. A couple of weeks ago, we had Secretary of State [John] Kerry in our locker room [after a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers]. He’s another friend of mine. I can’t imagine two people with more different political views than those two. But to me, friendship and loyalty is just about that. It’s not about political or religious views.
“I write hundreds of letters and notes every month,” Belichick said. “It doesn’t mean I agree with every single thing that every person thinks about politics or religion or other subjects. But I have multiple friendships that are important to me, and that’s what that was about. So it’s not about politics. It’s about football. We have a huge game this week against a great football team, a great organization, and that’s where it all is going forward. On to Seattle.”
I’m sorry but you aren’t fooling me this time Bill. The only thing that this letter was about is politics. Is there a problem with that absolutely right. To say it’s not political is just hilarious. Trump used it in his final speech before election day. Also Bill is a big letter guy. Slap a stamp on that bad boy and put it in the mail box. It’s not like there is texting, hell even a telegram would be more advanced. What pursued was just beautiful. The press kept asking, and all Bill replied with was Seattle. Just look at these exchanges.
When asked if he was “happy or annoyed that Trump had read his letter.” Belichick replied, “Seattle” Then he was asked about keeping distractions away, and “given the nature of this presidential race …” “Seattle,” Belichick said.Then the reporter said, “Did you find it …” “Seattle. Seattle,” Belichick said, interrupting the reporter. The reporter went on. “Helpful,” he said.”Seattle,” Belichick said.
