The New England Patriots are great at 3 things – bending the rules, winning Super Bowl championships, and visiting the White House.
Just a day after hi-jinks ensued when the victorious NFL team visited the President in Washington D.C., the New York Times sports department posted a comparison photo of 2 different post-Super Bowl receptions at the White House in 2015 and 2017.
The 2015 photo w/ President Obama looks more heavily attended, which is what motivated the NYT to jump all over the story (imagine the reverse scenario).
However, the Patriots soon cried foul, as did the President.
“The failing New York Times just got caught in a big lie!” Trump tweeted. But the most devastating counter-attack came from the New England Patriots’ Twitter account (see below):
The Patriots’ number of shares for the text-based tweet have exceeded even some of Mr. Trump’s classics.
