The New England Patriots explain the context behind the photo, which the media didn’t.
The New York Times, CNN, and MSNBC are among those who have fallen for a picture being circulated purporting to show fewer New England Patriots players visiting the White House under President Trump than President Obama.

The picture shows the 2015 New England Patriots with President Obama taking up a considerable amount more space than today’s New England Patriots’ players who were meeting with President Trump.
Well, the picture fails to take note of some important context. The New England Patriots though took to twitter to explain the discrepancy.
