Tom Brady Skipping White House Visit

US President Donald Trump was among friends on Wednesday as he welcomed the Super Bowl-winning New England Patriots team to the White House, though the absence of star quarterback Tom Brady was glossed over.

"I don't feel welcome in that house". The Wednesday's ceremony at White House in Washington is expected to go on as planned, despite the news that the former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez hung himself in prison. "In light of some recent developments, I am unable to attend today's ceremony, as I am attending to some personal family matters", he added. Brady reportedly opted to stay home to spend with with his mother.

Other members of the Patriots had made it clear they will skip Wednesday's visit over disagreements with President Trump.

Although Brady skipped the event to attend to "family matters", several of his teammate were absent as part of a symbolic protest of the Trump administration.

"I think I've got this, but thank you", Spicer responded, which drew a few laughs.

He also heaped praise upon Belichick, thanking him for writing a letter a year ago in support of his candidacy for president. "I wish I could say it's complicated, but no, this one is pretty straightforward: I'm an idiot", the statement read. It was the team's fifth Super Bowl victory since 1960.

The visit came just hours after the death of former Patriots' receiver Aaron Hernandez, who hanged himself in his cell in a MA prison.

Hernandez - who played for the Patriots from 2010 to 2012 - was serving a life sentence for a murder conviction. That's so sweet! Well, Belichick and Kraft tried to top that by presenting Trump with the traditional gift of his very own number 45 Patriots jersey.

In September 2015, The Boston Globe reported that a "Make America Great Again" hat was spotted in Brady's locker, and he said that he was given it by Patriots owner Bob Kraft.

"I don't believe in excluding other people", free safety Devin McCourty explained in a video released at the end of last week.
