There was a lot some-more to that viral New York Times print of a Patriots’ Trump visit

After Donald Trump took umbrage to a distance of his partially trifling coronation throng in January, a photo from Wednesday was roughly too good to be true. 

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. 

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. 

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.
