After Teammates Boycott Trump White House Visit, Tom Brady’s ‘Response’ Sets Internet on FIRE

by Jason DeWitt | Top Right News

Several members of the New England Patriots have announced that they will not be joining their teammates when the team does the traditional visit that Super Bowl winners take to the White House, with President Donald J. Trump.

According to IJReview, the team members are tight end Marcellus Bennett, defensive tackle Alan Branch, linebacker Dont’a Hightower, defensive end Chris Long, running back LeGarrette Blount, and defensive back Devin McCourty.

Blount, McCourty and Bennett have all indicated they are skipping because of President Trump and they do not ‘feel welcome” at the Trump White House.

Blount even sharply called itthat house”…

Chris Long said he had “planned on skipping” for family reasons, not that he was joining those who were doing it as a political statement against Donald Trump.

But as IJR notes, Tom Brady may have “thrown some major shade” for his skipping teammates with this Instagram post.

Many people believe that Brady, who is a a friend of President Donald Trump, meant his strong message for his teammates.

The case seems particularly strong as it came nearly a week after their Super Bowl win, as talk of a Trump boycott by the players dominates discussion on the very liberal ESPN.

If so, he nailed it.

The other players can stay home, they’re perfectly within their rights.

But the White House visit is to recognize the achievements of the team, not to endorse or honor President Donald Trump.

Not everything has to be a political battle…which liberals seem intent on doing with nearly every issue, particularly on race.
