President Trump put the New England Patriots in front of the White House

Best Super Bowl comeback, best football franchise, and best regular season record were just some of the praises heaped upon America’s latest football champs.

Trump welcomed Patriots players, the coach, and the owner to the White House. He congratulated them on last season’s accomplishments, leading to their Super Bowl 51 win.

“Since Bob bought the Patriots in 1994, they’ve won more division titles, conference championships and Super Bowl wins than any other team. No team has been this good for this long. He’s built a culture dedicated to winning. And he started it with his coach—and I want to tell you, that is some special man—it’s called the Patriot Way. And that really starts with Coach Belichick.”  

He was presented with his very own Super Bowl jersey and helmet by the end.

Notably absent was quarterback Tom Brady, citing personal family issues as the reason for not coming.

Another absence was Aaron Hernandez, who hanged himself in prison on the same day, while serving a life sentence. He was not a member of this year’s Super Bowl roster. He had been in prison on a murder charge. He was released by the Patriots upon his arrest in 2013.
