No matter how much you may love or hate the New England Patriots, there’s no denying they’re a damn good team. They’ve won five Super Bowls in less than two decades and have visited the White House each time.
And since there’s documentation of their visits, the New York Times decided to compare the Patriots’ attendance in 2015 after their victory over the Seattle Seahawks to their victory in 2017 over the Atlanta Falcons. Or rather, their victory when former President Obama was in office as compared to Donald Trump.
What you’ll notice is rather startling, and we must now prepare ourselves for the inevitable spin from White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

As you probably noticed, there are nearly double the amount of Patriots in the photo from 2015 with Obama as there are with Trump in 2017. And you know that crowd size matters a lot to Trump. We all remember how obsessed he was with his extremely pathetic inauguration crowd size.
According to NBC Sports, out of the 68 person roster for the Patriots, exactly half didn’t go.
“Not all players skipped for political reasons, but multiple Patriots made it clear that they opted not to attend due to issues with the administration.”
In comparison to Obama in 2015, 50 players showed up for that visit to the White House.
If crowd size matters, Obama kicked Trump’s ass yet again.
