Why Malcolm Mitchell Visited White House While Many Patriots Skipped

President Trump on Thursday blasted the New York Times' "big lie" for posting contrasting photos of the crowd size at the Patriots' Super Bowl celebration at the White House.
The Times' Twitter account for its sports section tweeted photos of Wednesday's gathering on the South Lawn of the White House and a much more crowded picture of the team's 2015 appearance when Barack Obama was president. The latter photo depicted a large number of Patriots staffers on both staircases adjacent to the podium, suggesting that many of them didn't show up for the festivities this time around.
The Super Bowl champs - who play in the AFC East with the New York Jets - joined US president Donald Trump in calling out the New York Times.
Apparently the photos were misleading.
As we can see above, a similar pattern emerged in 2004 and 2005 when substantially fewer players showed up to the White House as compared to the 2002 visit following the franchise's first Super Bowl win. "In 2015, over 40 football staff were on the stairs".
Trump claimed he saw a crowd that "looked like a million and a half people" and White House spokesman Sean Spicer claimed the "dishonest" media framed the photos to make the president's crowd look smaller. On Wednesday, they were seated on the South Lawn.
"The last time the #Patriots won two Super Bowls in three years, 36 players visited the White House".
Disagreement over the pictures aside, there were indeed fewer Patriots players in attendance at Wednesday's meeting than there were in 2015.
Trump noted the kerfuffle and tweeted about the New York Times on Thursday morning.
That's when George W. Bush was president.
The New York Times obtained a reaction from a Patriots' rep about the matter of size.
"Patriots say (number) of players was smaller this year than 2015, but total delegation was roughly the same", the publication wrote.
