National Football League star gatecrashes Sean Spicer's press briefing

21 Avril, 2017, 20:38 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

The Super Bowl-champion New England Patriots are visiting the White House Wednesday to accept congratulations from President Trump for another National Football League title.

Wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell said he was moved by the White House ceremony, saying it "almost brought me to tears".

The five-time Super Bowl champion has referred to President Trump as a friend and has said that he's "always had a good time with him".

He is reportedly spending the day with his mother, who has been battling cancer for the past year.

Tom Brady also did not attend the New England Patriots' visit to the White House in 2015 to celebrate their Super Bowl XLIX winning.

"It was the first overtime game in Super Bowl history and it ended in a legendary victory for this proud franchise and these absolutely terrific players and coaches", Trump said while speaking in front of Patriots players and staff on the South Lawn of the White House.

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?! Hernandez was acquitted just days ago of the 2012 shootings of two other men in Boston. He even crashed this morning's press briefing, asking Sean Spicer is he "needed any help".

No lawmakers attended the White House event.

The President, who identifies as a friend and fan of Brady's, also has ties to Patriots owner Bob Kraft and head coach Bill Belichick.

"I think I got this, but thank you ... maybe", Spicer replied.

"I am so happy and excited that our team is being honored at the White House today", Brady said in a statement released by ESPN's Mike Reiss.

Brady, who faced controversy during the 2016 election when a "Make America Great Again" hat was spotted in his locker, has been evasive when asked about Trump, keeping his comments non-political.

President Trump highlighted big plays by Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman and Trey Flowers during the Super Bowl, but did not mention Brady's name during the ceremony.

Speaking of Belichick, he wrote Trump a letter during the 2016 election.

"I don't believe in excluding other people", free safety Devin McCourty explained in a video released at the end of last week.
