The New England Patriots are the first professional sports team to meet with the 45th president, Donald Trump.
After a few Patriots players have made it known that they will not be attending the White House visit, Tom Brady just made his decision.
Brady will be with his teammates when they make the trip down to D.C. this Wednesday to be honored for their historic Super Bowl win “sources familiar with the planning” told Politico. Brady is longtime friends with President Donald Trump.
At least six Patriots are expected to skip the White House visit Wednesday. Defensive end Chris Long and safety Devin McCourty’s reasons are political. Dont’a Hightower stated that he’s been there and done that and doesn’t need to return.
My thoughts on this. There are things I agree with and disagree with on both parties. I’m not just one thing. There’s things I’m liberal about and some things I’m conservative about. I don’t disown people that support one way or the other, after all, nearly 50% of the people voted for Trump. So look at the friend to your left and your friend to the right, odds are one voted the way you didn’t.
I don’t talk politics on this page, sadly people can’t handle and have conversations like adults, so I keep it off entirely. But Tom shouldn’t receive backlash from this just for going to the White House. Enjoy the visit, and hopefully you can do it all again next year. Now it’s time for me to sit back, and watch the comment section lose their minds.
