After the Patriots took home a big win in the 2017 Super Bowl, fans celebrated their team and Tom Brady. Robert Kraft and Bill Belichick worked hard to have such a dominant team.
However, not everyone is excited for the traditional Super Bowl champion visit to the president. Patriots’ tight end, Martellus Bennett, announced that he will not be going with his team to meet President Trump.
He stated, “I haven’t thought about it since the game, but I’m not going to go” shortly after victory. He continued, “I feel like right now I’m just trying to enjoy this. But, it is what it is. People know how I feel about it. Just follow me on Twitter.”
While he does not out right speak in nasty tones like many liberals, he does give more subtle insults and jabs towards Trump and people who support him.
So Kanye didn’t take the time to vote. And now he holding on to Trump’s coattail like Peter Pettigrew to Lord Voldemort. Kanye Pettigrew

America was built on inclusiveness not exclusiveness.

Even if he doesn’t like Trump, I do find it quite unsportsmanlike to decline visiting with his team. If he can play with a team, and win with a team, then he can participate in activities with the team. What do you think?
