9:17 AM PT -- Tom Brady brought jokes to the White House ... crackin' a funny about the election results that was so hilarious -- even Joe Biden had to laugh!!!
Brady, speaking about the Bucs' improbable run from 7-5 to Super Bowl champs, said at the podium Tuesday, "Not a lot of people think that we could’ve won."
"In fact," he continued, "I think about 40% of the people still don’t think we won. You understand that, Mr. President??"
Biden -- who famously had to deal with Donald Trump and his supporters questioning the 2020 election results -- giggled and responded, "I understand that!"
Brady's wisecracks weren't limited to just that one, though ... the NFL superstar even had a "Sleepy Tom" reference built into his speech that also had Joe rollin'!!
Biden, meanwhile, praised Brady during his address to the crowd at the White House ... saying he wouldn't be surprised if the quarterback played 20 more years in the league.
The ceremony concluded with Brady and the Bucs presenting Biden with a personalized jersey ... which the President happily accepted.
The G.O.A.T. is finally back at POTUS' pad ... Tom Brady has officially made the trip to the White House for the Buccaneers' Super Bowl party!!
Of course, this is an extremely rare sight ... 'cause the QB barely ever goes to these events -- you'll recall, the last time he attended a D.C. Super Bowl celly was way back in 2005!!
Brady skipped out on a trip to Barack Obama's White House in 2015, and he also ditched a visit to Donald Trump's White House in 2017.
When Brady's Patriots won it all again in 2018 ... the team as a whole never went -- meaning Brady has only capped off 3 of his previous 6 championships with 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. visit.
Unclear what made Brady want to go this time around -- particularly 'cause it's Gisele's birthday Tuesday -- but he's there nonetheless, and looking dapper as hell!!

Tom wore a dark suit with a tie and sunglasses for the occasion ... and he was front and center for a team pic with the Lombardi Trophy out on the South Lawn before the ceremony began.
His teammate, Donovan Smith, even got in a little joking with Tom about the event ... asking the QB, "You got residency here?"
Tom's response? "It's been a long time since I've been here. A long time."
The Bucs' trip marks the first time a Super Bowl winner has gone to the White House for a celebration since 2017 ... and we're sure there's going to be a lot of laughs at the event.
The official ceremony gets underway in just a few minutes ... stay tuned!!
