Six Patriot Players Say They Won’t Go To White House If POTUS Invites Them – Media Goes Nuts
Six New England Patriots Say They Won’t Go To The White House, Not The First Time This Has Happened.
As the tradition goes, championship teams are invited by the sitting president for a visit to the White House. Six Patriot players have already said they will not attend when that time comes. The liberal media makes it seem like these are the first 6 players to ever decline the offer. The fact is many players have declined in the past, and some have even turned down Barack Obama.
The 1972 Miami Dolphins were honored by the Obama White House and invited for a visit, however some players who disagreed with the policies of Obama said no.
From The Week:
Kuechenberg: “I just don’t believe in this administration at all.”
Fernandez: “[M]y views are diametrically opposed to the president’s.”
Langer:”I don’t want to be in a room with those people and pretend I’m having a good time. I can’t do that.”
Here is a list of just some of the players who have skipped White House visits in the past. The liberal media wants you to think this is a new thing for athletes. The reality is it happens every year.
