New England Patriots Visit White House Hours After Aaron Hernandez's Suicide in Prison

President Donald Trump felt a moment of football glory as he welcomed the 2017 Super Bowl champion New England Patriots to the White House on Wednesday. The team, which beat the Atlanta Falcons to win the Super Bowl LI in February, visited the president just hours after their disgraced former teammate and convicted killer Aaron Hernandez was found hanged in his prison cell. There has been speculation that the Patriots' D.C. visit may have been the final straw.
