Share

President Trump drew parallels between his unlikely election victory and the New England Patriots during their Super Bowl celebration Wednesday at the White House.

This time, however, the media focused a lot of attention on the players who refused to attend due to their dislike of President Trump.

Later on Wednesday, the Times tweeted photos of the of Patriots at the White House celebrating their Super Bowl victory in 2015 vs. 2017. The team presented the president with a personalized "Trump" No. 45 jersey and a helmet from February's Super Bowl, the first such game to go to overtime.

They posted a photo of the Patriots' White House attendance, which drew some ire from the Patriots' official Twitter account.

"No team has been this good for this long", Trump said during the ceremony on Wednesday.

'Best banker in America' blamed for Wells Fargo sales scandal
Tolstedt had previously been lauded by Stumpf as the " best banker in America ". "I can't promise perfection", Sloan said. The report suggests that Wells Fargo's management knew its goals were unrealistically high but flogged them anyway.

On the day of the visit, Quarterback Tom Brady said he also would not be attending the White House, ESPN's Mike Reiss reported.

"I am unable to attend today's ceremony, as I am attending to some personal family matters", Brady said in a statement earlier Wednesday.

The New York Times appears to have struck a nerve in New England.

When asked during the off-season how he felt about teammates ruling out making a trip to the White House he said it is a great experience, and that it was never a political thing.

"Patriots say (number) of players was smaller this year than 2015, but total delegation was roughly the same", the publication wrote.

Wenger leaves fans guessing on exit
Arsenal remain in sixth position, seven points off a fourth spot and level on points with seventh placed Everton. Asked to assess his team's top-four chances, Wenger said: "As very hard , like you, certainly".

"I don't feel accepted in the White House", McCourty said of his reason for boycotting the event.

One of those faces included the Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady.

Patriots owner Robert Kraft and head coach Bill Belichick are both known supporters of President Trump.

Still, one would think that Brady would give a little bit more notice if he planned on being with his family instead of partying at the White House.

The visit came just hours after the death of former Patriots' receiver Aaron Hernandez, who hanged himself in his cell in a MA prison.
