Gisele Bundchen takes on Trump policy: ‘Nothing justifies killing’ elephants for trophies

It seems clear Tom Brady’s better half is not a big fan of President Trump. An ardent environmentalist, Gisele Bundchen doesn’t care for the commander in chief’s take on global warming

— he’s called it a “hoax” — and now the Brazilian supermodel is upset about the Trump administration’s decision to allow hunters to bring trophies of elephants killed in Zimbabwe and Zambia back to the United States.

Bundchen is one of many celebs expressing shock and disappointment that Trump will reverse a ban put in place by President Obama in 2014.

Friday, on Instagram, Bundchen posted a picture of herself playing with elephants.

The caption: “Nothing justifies killing harmless animals to use its parts only as material goods, decoration or even worse as a trophy to satisfy someone’s ego or pride.

If we want a better future, we must take care of the wildlife.

When you hurt one species you are hurting them all, including us humans. We are all connected.”

In less than 30 minutes, the photo had been “liked” more than 100,000 times.

 

Nothing justifies killing harmless animals to use its parts only as material goods, decoration or even worse as a trophy to satisfy someone´s ego or pride. If we want a better future, we must take care of the wildlife. When you hurt one species you are hurting them all, including us humans. We are all connected. #weareone #moreloveplease #BeKindToElephants @dswt @savetheelephants https://wildfor.life/ 🐘🙏🌎 Nada justifica matar animais inofensivos para usar suas partes apenas como bens materiais, decoração ou, ainda pior, para satisfazer o ego ou orgulho de alguém. Se queremos um futuro melhor, também temos de cuidar da vida selvagem. Se você fere uma espécie, está ferindo a todas, incluindo nós, seres humanos. Somos todos conectados. https://wildfor.life/

We’re not expecting Brady to comment. Soon after Trump was elected last November, the Patriots QB, who’s been a Trump friend and occasional golf partner, said he planned to stop talking about politics.
