We all know Donald Trump is obsessed with being right. He’s also obsessed with pictures, which started after his inauguration in January. As you can see in the picture below, Trump’s inauguration was not as well attended as his predecessor’s:
Now you can argue that the picture has been altered and that the sun sets in the East and rises in the West, but let’s just say that the above picture is accurate. Fast forward three months and we have another picture controversy on our hands thanks to the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots visiting Trump at the White House. The Patriots already announced that less players were showing up compared to 2015 but that the overall number of personnel and players would be about the same. Then, this picture happened:
Instead of just letting it go, the official Patriots Twitter account decided to chime in and give their take on the picture, which not only seems unnecessary, but seems like something that was directed by Trump himself:
The Patriots are a team that rarely officially comment on anything, so to have them come out and tweet something like that is odd. Kraft and Trump are butt buddies, and Belichick even wrote Trump a letter during the campaign, so you have to imagine that friendship and Trump’s obsession with being popular has a lot to do with it. Of course, Trump also weighed in on the picture, because he apparently has nothing better to do:
Failing @nytimes, which has been calling me wrong for two years, just got caught in a big lie concerning New England Patriots visit to W.H.

If you’re looking for some fresh reasons to hate the Patriots, you know have some ammo.
Even if you didn’t watch Saturday’s SNL, chances are you’ve heard about this sketch. Melissa McCarthy surprisingly showed up to play Press Secretary Sean Spicer and blew the roof off of 8H. You had everything here for a great sketch: a fearless comedian, McCarthy somehow looking EXACTLY like Spicer and tons of information to work with. I loved the minute details, like McCarthy shoveling gum in her mouth, which happens to be a very real habit of Spicer’s. I loved how she argued with the reporters over labeling the Executive Order a ban, another real thing that is continuing to happen between Trump’s administration and the press. Finally, just when you thought the sketch was winding down, McCarthy brought out the visual aids, and the ‘radical moose lambs’ is something that I’m going to enjoy for a very long time. This is SNL at it’s best.
