Trump on Pats, 'No team has been good this long'

Tom Brady isn't visiting the White House with the New England Patriots on Wednesday, April 19th.

During the visit, Williamsville native Rob Gronkowski offered to lend a hand to Press Secretary Sean Spicer in his daily briefing.

"Need some help?" the irrepressible Gronkowski asked a surprised Spicer.

Both Kraft and Belichick presented Trump with a Patriots Super Bowl 51 jersey and helmet, stood for some photos, then went inside the White House to continue the celebration. "That's the beauty of what they do, they win as a team", said Trump, who equated some similarity to the team's stirring 25-point comeback against the Atlanta Falcons with his own political victory.

There were other reasons for player absences, however.

Furious 7 was the final film in the series to star Paul Walker , who died in a tragic vehicle crash in November 2013. The film has the usual elaborate vehicle chases, this time through the streets of Cuba and across a frozen lake.

If President Trump didn't like those inauguration photos, just wait until he sees the ones from Wednesday's New England Patriots visit.

Defensive end Chris Long, running back LeGarrette Blount, defensive lineman Alan Branch and linebacker Dont'a Hightower have also said they will not meet with Trump.

The New England Patriots' much anticipated visit to the White House was met with a lot of scrutiny, but in the end, they were the ones slamming reports that suggested their turnout was drastically smaller than previous years. He compared the team's epic comeback to Trump's triumph on the campaign trail, noting he beat out "16 career politicians" (in the Republican primaries) to shock the world and earn a spot in the White House.

"I think I've got this, but thank you", Spicer responded, which drew a few laughs.

Before the Super Bowl, Trump was constantly singing Tom's praises, so it's definitely telling that he wouldn't mention him during an event honoring the team.

Six other Patriots also didn't attend the event.

Patriots owner Robert K. Kraft contributed $1 million to Trump's inauguration, according to Federal Election Commission filings.

"Basic reason for me is I don't feel accepted in the White House".

In his address to the team, the president didn't mention Brady, who has led the Patriots to five Super Bowl victories, including on February 5, when he helped New England overcome a 28-3 third-quarter deficit to capture a 34-28 overtime victory against the Atlanta Falcons.
