So far, 6 New England Patriots players plan to skip the trip to President Trump’s White House

And then there where 6.  One after another it seems, New England Patriots athletes are declining to attend the Super Bowl celebration at the White House hosted by President Trump.  Their offical reasons vary but it seems pretty consistant that they have no desire to be in the same room with the contentious, newly minted, politician.   So far the will NOT attend list includes:


Running Back Lagarrette Blount

Defensive End Chris Long

Defensive Lineman Alan Branch

Tight End Martellus Bennett

Defensive Back Devin McCourty

Linebacker Dont’a Hightower


Speculation persists on whether or not Running Back James White (who scored the Superbowl winning touchdown) will attend the soiree. Only time will tell if any more from the team decide to skip the event. At this rate, it may very well be pals Quarterback Tom Brady and President Trump enjoying the party as a solitary duo.
