Trump blasts 'New York Times' over Patriots photo flap

Trump blasts 'New York Times' over Patriots photo flap

It came after the Patriots said the delegation that attended was about the same size, but that this time around members of the football staff were seated.

However, the team never tweeted the number of players in attendance during the 2015 visit - the year the shared photo was taken - from its official account.

The Super Bowl Champions visited the White House to meet the President, which is customary after a Super Bowl win.

Cleveland Cavaliers' Top 5 X-Factors Entering 2017 NBA Playoffs
While Indiana is coming into the playoffs hot with a five-game winning streak as the team is finally clicking on all cylinders. He was signed March 13 and the Cavs held a team option for next season, but they relinquished that right by waiving him.

It began when the Times and other news organizations tweeted out photos comparing the Patriots' visit with Trump on Wednesday with the team's White House event with President Barack Obama in 2015 - there was a much bigger crowd around Obama, according to the photos.

"Patriots' turnout for President Obama in 2015 vs. Patriots' turnout for President today", New York Times Sports wrote on Twitter on Wednesday.

After the tweet was sent out, the Patriots replied back saying the comparison was misleading and lacked context. The 39-year-old quarterback cited "personal family matters" as the reason for his absence from the trip to Washington D.C. to celebrate their Super Bowl victory.

Facebook Finally Has A Virtual Reality Product

Brady has missed the team's last two visits to the White House.

Another group of players - running back LeGarrette Blount, defensive end Chris Long, defensive tackle Alan Branch and tight end Martellus Bennett - boycotted the ceremony because of Trump's policies. The picture with Trump showed both staircases empty while the 2015 photo with Obama appeared seemingly packed with players.

Trump claimed he saw a crowd that "looked like a million and a half people" and White House spokesman Sean Spicer claimed the "dishonest" media framed the photos to make the president's crowd look smaller.
