President Trump welcomed the New England Patriots to the South Lawn of the White House Wednesday to congratulate them on their fifth Super Bowl championship.
The Patriots won the Super Bowl two years ago in 2015, and pretty much everyone showed up to hang with Obama - but as this photo shows, in 2017...not so much.
Did Robert Kraft hijack the Patriots' Twitter account?
"Whether you're trying to rebuild our country or win a Super Bowl, there are no days off", the president said during a ceremony on the South Lawn.
Trump commented on the team's unbelievable comeback in the Super Bowl, stunning the world for pushing the game into overtime and winning the game despite a 25-point deficit in the second half.
Patriots players did not speak about Hernandez's death at the White House and team officials earlier said they would not comment. One of Trump's signature "Make America Great Again" hats was spotted in Brady's locker in 2015.

"Good old pundits, boy, they're wrong a lot, aren't they?"
The Patriots rallied from 25 points down to defeat the Atlanta Falcons in February. He credited Kraft and Belichick for fostering the team's performance to have it snatch not only the most recent title but five National Football League championships since 2002.
Brady released a statement saying he is "so happy and excited" that the Patriots are being honored at the White House. However, many members of the team, including quarterback Tom Brady, were noticeably absent.
Since Tom Brady wasn't there to supervise Gronk, the Big Gronkowski chose to wander off on his own and crash Sean Spicer's White House press briefing.
The tight end popped his head into the briefing room and jokingly asked Press Secretary Sean Spicer whether he needed any help, drawing laughs. "I think I've got this", Spicer replied, "But thank you".
Kraft compared the comeback and long odds to Trump's campaign for the presidency, saying in the primaries Trump "faced odds nearly as long as we faced in the fourth quarter". "Alright, that was cool".
