There was a lot some-more to that viral New York Times print of a Patriots’ Trump visit
Turns out it was. Mostly. Bear with us here as we mangle this thing down.
Here’s a print that went everywhere online Wednesday after The New York Times sports territory tweeted it out. It purportedly shows how many Patriots showed adult to revisit a White House with Barack Obama staying therein as boss after winning a 2015 Super Bowl — as good as how partially few Pats showed adult to Trump’s White House on Wednesday to applaud winning a 2017 Super Bowl.
But wait! The Patriots took difference to this description and dismissed behind during a Times on Twitter.
These photos miss context. Facts: In 2015, over 40 football staff were on a stairs. In 2017, they were seated on a South Lawn. https://t.co/iIYtV0hR6Y

So what they are observant is this: The print with Obama looks so most some-more populated since it facilities New England players as good as group staffers; a print with Trump looks so unhappy since it usually facilities players, and not group staffers to boost a numbers.
So that explains it — solely not quite, really.
According to a successive UPDATE chatter from a Times, a Patriots pronounced that 50 players attended a 2015 White House rite with Obama, while only 34 attended a rite Wednesday with Trump.

That means a actor audience decreased by about a third for Trump’s revisit — that is poignant though not scarcely as poignant as a strange Times chatter would have we believe. The diminution is also applicable since several players privately said after their Super Bowl win that they’d skip a White House revisit due to Trump’s story of racism and sexism.
So what happened with a Times tweet?
Yahoo Politics editor Colin Campbell got criticism from from someone he identified on Twitter as “NYT sports editor” — that is presumably Jason Stallman, who’s listed as such by a paper. It’s a mea culpa in full.

Trump, of course, was his typically advanced self about a whole thing, promulgation out this not-at-all-bizarre chatter on Thursday morning.
Failing @nytimes, that has been job me wrong for dual years, only got held in a large distortion concerning New England Patriots revisit to W.H.

Doesn’t he, like, have improved things to do? The opioid crisis? The Middle East? Automation entrance for all the jobs?
Seriously. Pick flattering most anything — it’d be a improved use of presidential time.
