Tom Brady Skipping White House Visit

Tom Brady Skipping White House Visit

New England Patriots quarterback and white supremacist hero Tom Brady announced Wednesday morning that he wouldn't be attending the White House's Super Bowl victory party scheduled that afternoon because of "personal family matters." .

The president praised the "culture dedicated to winning" that coach Bill Belichick created in the Patriots organization.

"They've won more division titles, conference championships, and Super Bowl wins than any other team".

Trump recognized several Patriots players for their efforts during the 25-point comeback, including Danny Amendola, Malcolm Mitchell, Julian Edelman and Nate Ebner. Five takeaways from the Georgia special election MORE in November. But, according to the team, the picture from this year is misleading.

In addition to Brady, Trump is close with Patriots owner Bob Kraft, who has dined with Trump and Japan's prime minister at Mar-a-Lago.

Trump also received a personalized No. 45 jersey and helmet from Kraft and Belichick, respectively.

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

Hernandez was serving a life sentence for murder but was recently acquitted on separate double murder charges.

The Super Bowl champions claimed the photos was "lacked context", adding that the staff were sitting on the lawn, compared to standing behind President Obama in 2015. Three of whom - LeGarrette Blount, Martellus Bennet, and Devin McCourty - said their absence was an act of protest against the Trump administration.

As we learned before the Super Bowl, Tom's mother, Galynn Brady, has been battling cancer over the past year, so many are anxious that the "personal family matter" he skipped White House event for has to do with her. Brady's mother has been battling cancer for roughly two years.

Is there beef between Donald Trump and Tom Brady after the former didn't show up to the Patriots' meeting at the White House on April 19?!

Rob Gronkowski paid a surprise visit to the White House briefing room during Wednesday's televised briefing. The spokesman quickly turned and said he could handle their questions.

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