The reality is is that real-life "family matters" as his reason for not being able to attend.

Besides Brady, six members of the team were not expected at Wednesday's event. I'm going back to work on my bunker. "With the president having so many strong opinions and prejudices I believe certain people might feel accepted there while others won't".

It was unclear if the celebration with his parents was the reason Brady did not attend the Patriots' meeting with President Trump at the White House Wednesday.
