Sights and sounds from the Patriots’ White House visit
The Patriots paid a visit to President and noted New England fan Donald Trump on Wednesday to commemorate their Super Bowl victory.
Although Tom Brady was tending to a family matter and a number of Patriots players including Martellus Bennett and LeGarrette Blount chose to protest with their absence, a sizeable Pats contingent led by owner Robert Kraft and coach Bill Belichick showed up to celebrate at the White House.
Here’s what went down, featuring...Gronk.
(Spoiler alert: literally nothing of substance happened and it was an overly serious occasion with little celebratory fanfare.)
