We already know that Donald Trump wishes his daughter, Ivanka, had been interested in dating Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Thanks to a new book, we now also know that the president cites Brady in his putdowns of son-in-law Jared Kushner.

Journalist Vicky Ward will soon release, "Kushner Inc.," which details Jared and Ivanka's rise to power within the White House. According to the New York Times, the book contains an interesting reference to Brady:

When Mr. Kushner and Ms. Trump decided to get married, both sets of parents were skeptical. Ms. Trump eventually won over the Kushners with her commitment to a grueling religious conversion regimen and her apparent intense desire to become part of a close-knit family.

Mr. Trump, meanwhile, did not understand why his daughter had to change her religion for anyone, even though he liked Mr. Kushner. He would joke that Ms. Trump could have married Tom Brady, the quarterback for the New England Patriots, and once joked to Robert K. Kraft, the team's owner, that "Jared is half the size of Tom Brady's forearm."

We all know Trump's obsession with winners, and Brady's as great as one of those can get. It's unlikely his son-in-law will ever measure up.
