Tom Brady Won't be at White House Today When Patriots Meet Trump

McCourty, a team captain, told Time magazine that he also doesn't feel "accepted in the White House".

The New England Patriots learned of former tight end Aaron Hernandez's suicide as they prepared to go to the White House to celebrate their fifth Super Bowl title.

Gronkowski looked over and enquired: "Sean, need some help?"

That led to laughter from the press corps. "But thank you", Spicer responded.

"Alright, that was cool", he said to the amusement of the room full of reporters.

The Super Bowl-champion New England Patriots are visiting the White House to accept congratulations from President Donald Trump for another National Football League title.

Brady is a personal friend of Trump's, and the president often cited the quarterback while out on the campaign trail a year ago. He discussed why he chose to not attend the White House visit on CNN Wednesday night from his home in Arizona.

"In light of some recent developments, I am unable to attend today's ceremony, as I am attending to some personal family matters", Brady, 39, shared.

"Uhh, maybe", Spicer said, laughing.

A number of teammates did not attend the event, including quarterback Tom Brady, who has said in the past that he and the president are friends. Several players were asked about Hernandez's death after the White House ceremony, but they declined to answer. "What President Trump said on the bus really struck a nerve with me", he said. You got to see this.

According to a tweet from the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe, Brady's mother has been battling cancer since before the Super Bowl, and the star QB will be spending time with her.

Brady, the Super Bowl 51 MVP, is reportedly staying home with his parents as he attends to a "family matter" while President Donald Trump fetes the champs at the White House.

While seven Patriots announced ahead of time that they would not visit, almost half the team didn't make the trip to D.C.
