New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick will not accept President Trump’s award of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, he announced in a statement Monday.
How dishonorable do you have to be when even Bill Belichick thinks you're bending the rules too far to try to win? 🙂 https://t.co/bXX2fH28Qj

The statement, first announced by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, comes after media reports on Sunday that Trump had invited the six-time Super Bowl winner to the White House to receive the nation’s highest civilian honor.
No comment from the first lady…

“The tragic events of last week occurred and the decision has been made not to move forward with the award,” Belichick wrote in the statement. The coach and the president are longtime friends, with the former writing a congratulatory note to the latter after his 2016 election.
Belichick’s public break with Trump comes on the heels of several companies freezing the president out after he helped incite a riot in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

Bill Belichick and his family has ties to the United States Naval Academy. He is very well liked in Annapolis. He played lacrosse. I played with a wooden stick made by an Indian. It’s all good.
I love the symbolism. A strong dig to Drumph’s Ego. Some cheat with conning and stealth a chess match with a catch, other by outrageous habit to overcome pure self hatred and personal inadequacies. Strong work Bill I am beginning to like you. Maybe I am getting older Gordon, but in the last four years I have been losing my appreciation for the female Nude. I attribute it to your posts of melanie. Keep ‘um coming though. These photos may be the only shocking reminder to those who would put her on a pedestal. I have nothing against the nude, I was quite the admirer-er. But one has to own it to be respected not try to be something else “#be best”
Finally some good nudes of Mel. Not bad. Back in the day, I’d tap that ass. (so would you. don’t lie.)
Now since you really seem to like nudes AKA: Erotic photographic art I have some that I’m sure even Carol would approve of.
You seem to be in a rut gentlemen. Tends to cheapen your site. I used to think you were better than this.
“Take it off” It was the shoe, Gordon. Just the shoe.
The head coach of the ‘patriots” is well known as a cheater up here in the north.
How poetic, and cute, they disown each other. and unsurprising
No comment from the first lady… is waiting a touchdown in her end zone…
A meek / grudging patriot.
“The tragic events of last week occurred and the decision has been made not to move forward with the award.”
Now Bill Belichick is a real Patriot!
