Sorry, Trump: Tom Brady declines White House visit due to ‘personal family matters’


The New England Patriots are set to visit the White House today to celebrate their victory in Super Bowl LI.

But Tom Brady will not be there.

In a statement posted moments ago, the quarterback cited “personal family matters” for the decision to not attend the ceremony. Our current President of the United States considers Brady a friend, so this is quite the situation developing.

It’s been a crazy morning in the Patriots world so far today, as this morning news broke that former player Aaron Hernandez was found dead in his jail cell, the result of a reported suicide.
