Patriots call out New York Times over White House visit comparisons

21 Avril, 2017, 03:14 | Author: Marc Bacque
  • Less than half as many Patriots showed up for Donald Trump as Barack Obama

But when the New York Times tweeted side-by-side images of the 2015 and 2017 New England visits, which clearly showed more Patriots two years ago, both the team and Trump fired back, on Twitter, of course.

The president's post came one day after a tweet from the newspaper's sports account suggested that there were more attendees at the 2015 event with former President Barack Obama than the 2017 one with Trump.

The Patriots' reaction was as swift as a linebacker's blitz. The team wrote: "These photos lack context". In the case of the picture taken during the visit with President Obama, the Patriots tweeted, more than 40 staff members are seen on the stairs. On Wednesday, they were seated on the South Lawn.

It is traditional for US championship sports teams in any sport to meet and greet the president (whoever that might be at the time) at the White House.

"Comparable photos: The last time the #Patriots won two Super Bowls in three years, 36 players visited the White House. Today, we had 34", the tweet read. And they have a point: The 2015 photo included players, coaches, and administrative staff. Back in November he denied giving Trump permission to say that he was voting for him, and in January he said being someone's friend doesn't mean you agree with everything they say. Trump called out numerous Patriots players by name, including Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman.

National Park Service photos showed a smaller number of people at Trump's inauguration than at President Obama's in 2009.

There is some speculation that Tom Brady bailed on the White House visit - perhaps prompted by wife and Trump foe Giselle Bundchen - because he wants to avoid any backlash in celebrity circles where President Trump is very unpopular, even though the president regularly mixed with celebrities during his long, pre-politics career in the media spotlight.
