The members of the New England Patriots who are refusing to visi

Wildwood - The members of the New England Patriots who are refusing to visit the White House are creating a dangerous precedent. The office of the president deserves respect, no matter who holds that position. Trump is unpopular with some, hated by others, but he is still the president. If we become a country that picks and chooses what part of government we intend to respect, our laws and system of government are at risk. In the military, we learned that we saluted the rank, not the man wearing it. This generation is going to create a terrible problem with its willfulness.

Editor's Note: 
A New York Times article Feb. 8 confirms, "At least six members of the Super Bowl-winning New England Patriots have said they will not visit the White House for the traditional meeting that championship teams have with the president."
