After Teammates Boycott White House Visit, Tom Brady Blows Up the Internet with Unexpected Post…

Several members of the New England Patriots have announced that they will not be joining their teammates when the team does the traditional visit that Super Bowl winners take to the White House.
According to Independent Journal Review, the team members are tight end Marcellus Bennett, defensive tackle Alan Branch, linebacker Dont’a Hightower, defensive end Chris Long, running back LeGarrette Blount, and defensive back Devin McCourty.
Chris Long said he had “planned on skipping” not that he was joining those who were doing it as a political statement against Donald Trump.
Blount, McCourty and Bennett have all indicated they are skipping because of President Trump and they do not ‘feel welcome” at the White House.
But as Independent Journal Review notes, Tom Brady may have thrown some shade for his skipping teammates with this Instagram post.

It’s not clear if Brady, who is a a friend of President Donald Trump, meant it for his teammates.
But he nails it.
It applies to the Super Bowl. But it also applies to visiting the White House.
The other players can stay home, they’re perfectly within their rights.
But the White House visit is to recognize the achievements of the team, not to endorse or honor President Donald Trump.
Not everything has to be a political tussle.
Sometimes you can just come together and enjoy.
