"In 2017, they were seated on the South Lawn". The 39-year-old quarterback cited "personal family matters" as the reason for his absence from the trip to Washington D.C. to celebrate their Super Bowl victory.

The Patriots organization, however, says that the photos are misleading.

Trump claimed he saw a crowd that "looked like a million and a half people" and White House spokesman Sean Spicer claimed the "dishonest" media framed the photos to make the president's crowd look smaller.

The subjects vary from a photo of Trump at the White House Easter Egg Roll, to one of Neil Gorsuch being sworn in as a justice of the Supreme Court, to an image of New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick from just yesterday. They weren't shown in Wednesday's photo because they were sitting on the lawn. The first was taken during the Patriots' visit with President Barack Obama in 2015, with the second being the Patriots' visit with President Trump on Wednesday.

Another group of players - running back LeGarrette Blount, defensive end Chris Long, defensive tackle Alan Branch and tight end Martellus Bennett - boycotted the ceremony because of Trump's policies.

The contrast in photos was quickly explained by the Patriots to the New York Times when they noted that the 2015 photo included support staff making it appear like a much larger contingent. The same personnel stood on the steps behind team players and Obama in 2015.

The White House celebrations were overshadowed by the suicide of the Patriots former star Aaron Hernandez, who hanged himself on Wednesday in a prison cell where he was serving a life sentence for murder, prison officials said.

Disagreement over the pictures aside, there were indeed fewer Patriots players in attendance at Wednesday's meeting than there were in 2015.
