New England Patriots quarterback and white supremacist hero Tom Brady announced Wednesday morning that he wouldn't be attending the White House's Super Bowl victory party scheduled that afternoon because of "personal family matters." .

The Patriots posted another photo to their Twitter account Wednesday showing Patriots staff and players who visited the White House Wednesday, among other personnel. He had a personal family matter to attend to, he told ESPN's Mike Reiss. The Boston Herald reported that he was going to spend time with his mother, who has been battling cancer. Two players were brought to speak to reporters after the White House ceremony, but both said they had not known Hernandez.

Defensive end Chris Long, defensive tackle Alan Branch and linebacker Dont'a Hightower said they would not make the trip, though not necessarily for political reasons.

Few would label President Donald Trump as a sports nut, but his affinity for the New England Patriots is undeniable. The team has not officially commented on this development.

Patriots owner Robert Kraft is close friends with Trump, and he contributed $1 million to his inaugural committee, according to federal records.

President Donald Trump is saluting the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots at the White House. Spicer, who grew up in Rhode Island, is reportedly a big Patriots fan.

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

Listen, if a reality star can be president, a football player can be press secretary. McCourty said: "The basic reason for me is I don't feel accepted in the White House".

But the turnout for Trump's congratulatory event on Wednesday was roughly the same size as when the Pats visited the White House following back-to-back titles in 2004-05, the spokesman said.
