“I’ll ask you some questions,” Trump told those seated at his table, according to a White House pool report. “How do you like it?”
When a woman said she “loved it,” Trump said, “You love doing it? That’s good. Everyone loves doing it. They just — great spirit, great military spirit.”
“Look at this guy,” Trump said, gesturing toward a man at the table. “Strong guy, huh? Think I could lift as much as you? I don’t think so.”
“How did you like the game last night? Good? Tom Brady, he cemented his place, right? He did a great job.”
What an amazing comeback and win by the Patriots. Tom Brady, Bob Kraft and Coach B are total winners. Wow!

It looked like the game was all but over as the Falcons took a 21-0 lead Sunday night, but then Brady scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter — with two two-point conversions — to tie everything up and take the teams into overtime.
The Patriots defeated the Falcons 34-28.
