New England Patriots visit White House; Gronk crashes Sean Spicer briefing

President Donald Trump welcomed the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots to the White House on Wednesday and it went as these things usually do.

In the statement provided to NBC News, the star quarterback thanked President Donald Trump for hosting the New England Patriots and praised his team.

"It was a complete team effort".

"When the pundits - boy they're wrong a lot, aren't they? - saying you couldn't do it, the game was over ... They said you couldn't do it".

Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal counted 34 absences from the Patriots roster and all had their own reasons for not being there.

Shortly before the event, Brady posted a photo of his parents on Instagram, wishing them a happy anniversary.

Other members of the Patriots had made it clear they will skip Wednesday's visit over disagreements with President Trump. "I mean, it was a really lovely letter".

One player made an impromptu appearance at a White House press before the official ceremony.

No word yet on if White House press secretary Sean Spicer will arrange a news conference to dispute the number of Patriots at the ceremony.

I don't know about you, but something about this story feels a little familiar.

The two pictures appear to show far fewer Patriots celebrating with President Trump. Tom has previously called Trump a "good friend," but was recently publicly scrutinized for showing support for the 70-year-old in the 2016 election.

Every year it's tradition for the Super Bowl champions (the National Football League winners) to spend a day at the White House, chilling with the President, taking selfies, getting a tour etc etc. Others include the owners of the Houston Texans, the Washington Redskins, the Jacksonville Jaguars and the LA Rams.

The Trump administration denies being misleading about a US carrier strike group's push toward the Korean peninsula, saying it never gave an arrival date and that the ships still are on their way.

"Basic reason for me is I don't feel accepted in the White House", McCourty, a two-time Pro Bowler, told Time Magazine in an interview published in February.
