Black Lives Matter: New England Patriots Super Bowl Champion Martellus Bennett From Houston Alief Not Going To Donald Trump White House After Win

Published On February 6, 2017 | By admin | Local & Worldwide News

When he played football for Alief Taylor High School in Houston, Martellus Bennett would oftentimes catch himself dreaming.

But Bennett, who starred as a two-sport athlete in football and basketball, wasn’t dreaming about one day being in the Super Bowl or NBA Finals. Rather, the Patriots tight end, who doubles as an imaginative thinker and creator, was laying down the roots to his fantasy world.

“When I was a kid, I wasn’t thinking about that with my imagination,” Bennett said of envisioning himself on sport’s biggest stage. “It was more about dragons and wizards. Football was just what we did. In Texas if you don’t play football you’re a weirdo, you know, so I always laugh because I tell people, Texas is all football and God. Growing up there, just playing football there, we didn’t have to imagine it. It’s what we did, you know?”

Now, Bennett doesn’t need to imagine being in a Super Bowl anyway, because now he’s a “I’m a muthfucking Super Bowl Champion” His words lol

It’s been well documented that both Patriots owner Bob Kraft and quarterback Tom Brady are friends and supporters of Donald Trump but Bennett says he isn’t concerned about Kraft’s disapproval.

“I’m not really worried about that,” Bennett said. “I’m not worried about it at all.”

Bennett says he doesn’t bring political talk to the locker room.

“You just don’t bring that to work,” he said. “We all have our beliefs. We accept people for who they are.”

Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett says he’ll skip out on a visit to the White House if the team is extended an invitation in honor of their Super Bowl win.

“It is what it is People know how I feel about it,” Bennett told the Dallas Morning News, when asked if he’d attend a White House celebration. “Just follow me on Twitter.”

Earlier in the week, Bennett told another Dallas MN reporter he wouldn’t attend a White House event:

“Because I don’t support the guy in the house,” he said.

It’s worth noting that Tom Brady declined President Obama’s invite to the White House when he honored the Patriots last win. He said he had a “family commitment” and went on vacay with Giselle and their kids.

But anyways, back to Super Bowl Marty Showing Respect For Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady…Seem Likes A Field & Love Connection LoL Congratulations.

One of our favorite moments from Bennett came when he brought his 3-year-old daughter Jet to the press conference with him. She completely took over!

Love you bro!! Thanks for always believing in me and always loving me no matter what. #BestBigBro @mosesbread72 We're Champions!!! 💍💍🍾🍾🏆🏆
