If there’s a career in politics waiting for Tom Brady one day, he already has one skill down pat: the evasive answer.

Brady, who created a stir in September when one of Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” caps was spotted in his locker, was asked again whether he supports the Republican candidate for president Tuesday in his weekly interview with WEEI radio in Boston. He scrambled. He weaved. He threw the ball away before he was sacked. Bill Belichick would be proud.

“Can I just stay out of this debate?” Brady replied on the “Dennis and Callahan” show. “Donald is a good friend of mine. I have known him for a long time. I support all my friends. That is what I have to say. He’s a good friend of mine. He’s always been so supportive of me — for the last 15 years, since I judged a beauty pageant for him, which was one of the very first things that I did that I thought was really cool. That came along with winning the Super Bowl. He’s always invited me to play golf. I’ve always enjoyed his company.

“I support all my friends in everything they do. I think it’s pretty remarkable what he’s achieved in his life. You’re going from business, kind of an incredible businessman and then a TV star, and then getting into politics. It’s a pretty different career path. I think that is pretty remarkable.”

Earlier this season, he was asked if he thought Trump had a chance to be elected and he tossed a little joke into his answer. “I hope so,” he said then. “That would be great. There’d be a putting green on the White House lawn, I know that.”

In a Washington Post interview last week, Trump gave credit to Brady for his 48 percent approval rating in Boston.

It all sounds like an endorsement, right? Not so fast.

“This is really important to you guys, huh?” was Brady’s answer Tuesday, and he’s sticking with it.
