    Some Patriots players won't visit White House

    Chris Long and LeGarrette Blount have added their names to a growing list of Patriots players who say they won’t participate in a White House celebration if the new Super Bowl champions are honored by President Donald Trump.Blount said on the Dan Patrick Show Thursday he's not interested.
    “I will not be going to the White House,” Blount said. “I don’t feel welcome in that house. I’ll leave it at that.”
    Long on Thursday revealed on Twitter that he doesn’t plan to attend such a ceremony, which has been a tradition for winners under past presidents.
    Martellus Bennett and Devin McCourty said they do not plan to join such a visit, and Dont’a Hightower said Wednesday they he would skip the visit too.
    I'm not in favor of this...don't think the sports team visit to the white house is a political endorsement...

    Some NASCAR driver declined to visit Obama's White House...although they mostly cited "schedule conflicts"...gimme a break.

    It's just a courtesy...not a political statement.

    Whooptie freaking do. Trump is not a king and they are not being summoned, if they don't want to go, it shouldn't be news at all. Its a good distraction from the polls that find Trump more honest than the media, or whatever else is going on in the world.

    So now you trust the polls? I thought your king told you the polls were meaningless? I thought his election proved the polls were irrelevant? Yet now you believe them?

    You need to pass whatever it is you're smoking. Polit-O-Fact has been chewing him up and spitting him out since he started campaigning.

    Oh, is it "left wing journalism?" Or is it simply the fact that Trump does absolutely nothing but tell lies?

    Err, wait - he gives "alternative facts."
