Why Malcolm Mitchell Visited White House While Many Patriots Skipped

Devin Nunes worked with Trump administration to create a fake scandal about Susan Rice report

The New England Patriots and President Trump criticized The New York Times for tweeting a photo comparison that suggested a smaller turnout for the team's latest Super Bowl celebration.

The team later tweeted a photo with the staff on the stairs and it didn't look much different from the 2015 pic. The tweet compared it with a NY Times photo taken Wednesday with Trump - showing both of the staircases empty.

A variety of Boston-area media outlets reported that 34 players showed up Wednesday for the ceremony with Trump, compared to "around 50" players for the ceremony with Obama.

The Patriots later said that the photos shown were misleading, and took to Twitter to explain the difference in the two photos.

It is traditional for USA championship sports teams in any sport to meet and greet the president (whoever that might be at the time) at the White House. The two photos show the Patriots personnel with the president on the south side of the White House.

The New England Patriots celebrated their Super Bowl LI victory by visiting the White House on Wednesday. On Wednesday, they were seated on the South Lawn. They also chalked the lower player attendance up to the fact that they have won two Super Bowls in three years, noting that less players came the last time the team won a second championship in three seasons, too.

Despite the focus on foreign speculators, the government has admitted it doesn't have good data on the real estate market. BMO had concerns about rent control, noting that the change could slow the construction of rental units.

The sports media, which the writers themselves admit has become a very liberal profession, continue to celebrate athletes for boycotting the Trump White House or stating in advance that they would do so. Even Trump fan Tom Brady did not make the trip, citing a family issue.

That's when George W. Bush was president.

The New York Times responded to the Patriots Wednesday on Twitter.

The New England Patriots' rivalry with NY has spilled into politics.

The Times tweeted an update saying the Pats confirmed that fewer players attended this year, but that the total delegation was about the same.
