President Donald Trump often boasts about his friendship with Tom Brady. TMZ founder Harvey Levin is reportedly looking to parlay that into an interview with the Patriots’ quarterback.

According to the New York Times, Trump granted an unannounced White House meeting to Levin last week. Sources say the topic of their conversation largely focused on securing Trump’s participation for Levin’s new Fox News series, “Objectified.” The President sat down with Levin for a softball Fox News interview last fall.

But apparently, the tabloid tycoon’s guest wish list extends beyond Trump. The Times reports Levin wants Brady to appear on the show, and planned to ask Trump if he could help the two connect with each other.

Though the extent of Trump and Brady’s friendship remains uncertain, they do seem to keep in touch. At a celebratory dinner before the inauguration, Trump said Brady called him to send his well wishes. In an interview with Kirk & Callahan last November, Brady declined to say whether he had voted for his pal.
