Devin Nunes Reportedly Felt Pressure from White House to 'Manufacture Fake Scandal'

President Trump on Thursday blasted the New York Times' "big lie" for posting contrasting photos of the crowd size at the Patriots' Super Bowl celebration at the White House.

"Patriots' turnout for President Obama in 2015 vs. Patriots' turnout for President Trump today", the New York Times tweeted along with photos from both events.

President Donald Trump stands with New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, left, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, right, and members of the New England Patriots during a ceremony on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, Wednesday, April 19, 2017, where he honored the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots for their Super Bowl LI victory. "In 2017, they were seated on the South Lawn", the team said on its Twitter account. The Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl 51 last February in a historic come-from-behind victory, making them National Football League world champions for the fifth time.

Meanwhile, Trump opted to maintain his love/hate relationship with his hometown newspaper - while he loves to describe The New York Times as "failing", he also gives them a steady stream of interviews and scoops. Some players, such as Tom Brady, missed the visit for personal reasons, while others, such as LeGarrette Blount and Chris Long, did so due to their distaste for the president and his policies.

But the celebrity web side reported Trump felt "betrayed" by Brady's absence, and made no mention of him at the White House event.

The New England Patriots' rivalry with NY has spilled into politics.

The delegation was made up of Patriots players as well as the organization's personnel.

That's when George W. Bush was president.

"Patriots say (number) of players was smaller this year than 2015, but total delegation was roughly the same", the publication wrote.
