Three months after Trump’s brutal inauguration crowd size loss to Barack Obama—and his subsequent denial of any evidence to the contrary—Trump just took another loss to Obama on crowd size, this time from the New England Patriots.

This was expected after a massive group—almost half—of Patriots players said they would not be attending, many because they did not “feel welcome” in the Trump White House. Even Trump’s friend, Tom Brady, didn’t show up, citing “personal family matters.” Given that the Patriots are considered one of the most Trump-supporting sports teams, that might not bode well for Trump’s future team visits.

We’ll update after Sean Spicer’s rationalizing and Trump’s inevitable angry 4 a.m. tweet.

    Love how you were in such a hurry to post this that you screwed up the years on the bottom two pictures.

    Don’t forget that the Patriots refuted this as well. I understand where your political leanings lie, but this is a dumb post.

    LOL at using the NYT as a source.
