Aaron Hernandez listens during his double murder trial

The Times - a publication Trump has attacked on numerous occasions - tweeted out a photo on Wednesday comparing the "turnout" the Pats had when they visited Barack Obama's White House in 2015 to Trump's White House this week.

The Times on Wednesday tweeted an Associated Press photo of the Patriots standing behind Obama on the south side of the White House in 2015.

In the Times' story in print, which included just one photo, Patriots spokesman Stacey James said the reason fewer players showed up Wednesday than the 50 at the 2015 celebration was because numerous veteran players didn't see a reason to attend the second event in three years.

The Patriots said 34 players visited the White House this year compared to 50 two years ago, but the total number of visitors - including staff - was about the same.

The Patriots later said that the photos shown were misleading, and took to Twitter to explain the difference in the two photos.

It then posted photos of the team's two White House visits showing that the turnout was roughly the same.

Trump claimed he saw a crowd that "looked like a million and a half people" and White House spokesman Sean Spicer claimed the "dishonest" media framed the photos to make the president's crowd look smaller. Facts: In 2015, over 40 football staff were on the stairs.

The organization said 34 players visited the White House Wednesday. On Wednesday, they were seated on the South Lawn.

During his campaign Trump mentioned the fact that he and Brady are friends every time he passed through New England, and on numerous occasions he's called Brady the greatest quarterback who's ever lived.

Some players reportedly declined to attend the White House ceremony because they didn't want to be seen with Trump.

Disagreement over the pictures aside, there were indeed fewer Patriots players in attendance at Wednesday's meeting than there were in 2015. Some players, such as Tom Brady, missed the visit for personal reasons, while others, such as LeGarrette Blount and Chris Long, did so due to their distaste for the president and his policies.

The New York Times obtained a reaction from a Patriots' rep about the matter of size.
