Super Bowl Champs to Skip the White House
Six members of the New England Patriots have announced they will be opting out of the team trip to the White House for various reasons. It is customary that the White House invites the winners of the Super Bowl to a photo-op with the president and a ceremony to honor the football stars.

McCourty and Bennet are the only two players that have claimed a disdain for President Trump as their reason for not attending.
