Trump, Patriots fight back against White House attendance photos

Trump, Patriots fight back against White House attendance photos

On Wednesday night, New York Times Sports tweeted two photos of Patriots players outside the White House. And they have a point: The 2015 photo included players, coaches, and administrative staff. Thirty-four players came to meet with President Trump on Wednesday, as opposed to an estimated 50 who came to see Obama.

That said, there were in fact fewer players at yesterday's ceremony than at the one held two years ago. "In 2015, over 40 football staff were on the stairs". On Wednesday, they were seated on the South Lawn.

Exactly half of the New England Patriots' Super Bowl-winning team did not attend its celebration at the White House, causing photographers to take notice of a diminished presence.

"The last time the #Patriots won two Super Bowls in three years, 36 players visited the White House". That turned out not to be the case, but there was a new crowd size controversy involving the Trump administration that had people- including the president himself- talking Thursday morning.

Tom Brady's cited "personal family matters" as the reason he was unable to join his teammates at the White House, by which he probably meant "Gisele will kill me if I go".

The New York Times responded to the Patriots Wednesday on Twitter.

Disagreement over the pictures aside, there were indeed fewer Patriots players in attendance at Wednesday's meeting than there were in 2015.

A Patriots spokesman told the Times that 34 players attended this week's ceremony.
