Devin McCourty leads no-shows as Patriots visit Trump's White House

Following Wednesday's White House press briefing, White House correspondents from ABC and CNN expressed their pathetic bitterness and sense of entitlement, whining that press secretary Sean Spicer didn't call on them or some of their friends in the liberal media.

Gronkowski asked Spicer if he needed help handling the press. Thank you to the President for hosting this honorary celebration and for supporting our team for as long as I can remember. Spicer - an avid Patriots fan - responded: "I think I got this".

The famously gregarious footballer was at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue on Wednesday for the customary visit to celebrate his team winning the Super Bowl over the Atlanta Falcons in February.

Trump bragged about his close relationship with Patriots owner Bob Kraft and Coach Bill Belichick during the event, talking up how Belichick wrote him a letter during the 2016 campaign.

"This Super Bowl victory was a complete team effort, that's the beauty of what they do", Donald Trump, 70, gushed over the New England Patriots, when the Super Bowl champions paid him a visit at the White House April 19.

Later, 24-year-old receiver Malcolm Mitchell said he was "almost brought to tears" by having the president mention his name. Tom Brady bowed out of the event early Wednesday morning citing "personal family matters".

Brady's mother has also reportedly been suffering from health problems. "He persevered to become the 45th president of the United States", Kraft said, and handed over a number 45 Patriots jersey to the Commander in Chief.

A team spokesman said the Patriots were aware of situation, but neither the team or Trump publicly addressed the news surrounding Hernandez. In addition to visiting President Donald Trump, the Patriots took a pic at the White House with their five Super Bowl trophies.

The visit came the same day that former Patriot Aaron Hernandez killed himself in prison, where he was serving a life sentence for murder.

Sources tell Reuters a Russian government think tank controlled by Vladimir Putin developed a plan to swing the 2016 US presidential election to Trump and undermine voters' faith in the American electoral system.

Defensive back Devin McCourty told Time Magazine: "I don't feel accepted in the White House".

"I don't believe in excluding other people", McCourty adds.
