Read: What Would Happen if Donald Trump Actually Became President

Tom Brady is known for a lot of things. He's the Patriots' star quarterback, he's Gisele's hot husband, and he's the guy from that Deflategate meme. He's also apparently a Donald Trump fan, and keeps an official "Make America Great Again" hat front and center in his Patriots locker.

A photo of Brady's locker was posted to Twitter this weekend, and the world collectively lost their shit when they spotted the Trump hat tucked in amid Brady's football pads and Old Spice deodorant and almost-empty bottles of mouthwash. The hat even had its own special, hat-sized cubbyhole.

On Tuesday morning, Brady went on Boston's sport radio station WEEI to address the hat and his relationship with Donald Trump, which apparently involves Tony Robbins-esque speeches and rounds of golf together.

"[Trump] sent [the hat] to me via R.K.K.," Brady told the hosts of WEEI's Dennis and Calahan Show, referring to Robert Kraft, the Patriots' owner.

Apparently, Brady and the Donald have been friends since 2002, and Trump likes to hit up Brady on the phone in his spare time. Or, as Brady puts it, "He always gives me a call and different types of motivational speeches at different times. So now that he's running for president, he sent me a hat ... It found its way to my locker."

Although he didn't confirm whether he'd actually vote for him, Brady called the success of Trump's campaign "pretty amazing."
