Donald Trump with the New England Patriots during a celebration of the team's Super Bowl victory on the South Lawn at the White House April 19, 2017 in Washington, DC.
The New York Timestweeted out a comparison of this year's visit and the Pats' visit in 2015, and it's not hard to spot the difference. We all knew Tom Brady was a late scratch for the visit, and several other players such as Martellus Bennett and Devin McCourty made it known well in advance they wouldn't be attending either because of Trump.
Kraft said he was delighted to be honored by Trump for a remarkable comeback victory that he said echoed the president's own longshot campaign "against 16 career politicians facing odds nearly as long as we faced in the fourth quarter".
"Everything we have struggled to move forward in the United States is in peril", organizers wrote on the website.
Trump commended Kraft for building a "culture dedicated to winning" and noted that "he started it with his coach", Belichick.
"Just a quick story about the coach", Trump began. Trump said he asked Belichick if it was OK to read the letter out loud. Somehow more encouraging, more pointed, more inspiring than the original. On Wednesday, there were barely more than 50 people alongside Trump. "He toned it way up!" The protest would coincide with Trump's 100th day in offce. "It was much better".
As Belichick and Kraft looked on - Gronkowski grinning in the back row alongside his teammates, Brady and McCourty and Amendola spending their day elsewhere, the details of Hernandez's final moments beginning to trickle out - a very unusual day continued to unfold.
Draw your own conclusions.
"It nearly brought me to tears", said Mitchell.
As the press laughed, Spicer told him, "I think I got this, but thank you".
