Duron Harmon

Duron Harmon, the New England Patriots' hero safety, says he will refuse a White House invitation to celebrate winning Super Bowl LIII with his teammates.

Harmon's defensive plays late in the 4th quarter were key to sealing the Patriots' victory over the hapless Los Angeles Rams by a final score of 13-3 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Sunday.

Harmon started the game on the bench, but an injury to linebacker Patrick Chung changed Harmon's fate.

He was called into action to take over as safety on passing downs in the second half.

"(My role) changed a lot," Harmon said in post-game interviews. "I went from just playing on third down a little bit to being out there in critical situations. We always talk about on this team that 'next man up’ mentality, and I wanted to make sure that I did everything I could to make sure that I played good football in honor of (Chung)."

After the game, Harmon headed to an Atlanta nightclub to party with rappers Cardi B and Meek Mill. He told a reporter he will refuse a White House invitation to celebrate with his team.

"They don't want me in the White House," said Harmon.

According to The Hill, Harmon referenced the Golden State Warriors, saying it "would be dope" for the Patriots as a team to skip the White House and visit with former President Barack Obama, like the Warriors did in January.

"We love you over here, man," Harmon said, referring to Obama.

Harmon was the first Patriots player to express a disinterest in visiting the White House after the game. But he might not be alone.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady skipped the team's White House visit in 2017 after his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, publicly criticized President Trump.

But Trump is good friends with Brady and Patriots owner Robert Kraft. Trump picked the Patriots to win Super Bowl LIII, and he called Brady the "greatest quarterback of all time."

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Brady and the Patriots' owner Robert Kraft are major Trump supporters. They wont be happy about this. It's good that he's standing up for what he believes, but I think the team will probably cut or trade him in the offseason.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I don't like Brady any more than the next person but if you have six Super Bowl rings you are probably the greatest to play as position x or y.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yeah, that was annoying when I heard that. You know they wouldn't call a play "Obama". ?

  • Appplesauce

    This Super Bowl was rigged. These are Trumps boys watch they roll out the red carpet for Tom and Kraft. The NFL needs to merge with the WWE, ain’t no way this sh$$ is real now.

    As a black women, I shall vent! somethings I will say are tongue in cheek and somethings will be sheer frustration you decide which vent belongs to you so here goes: I am so SICK of this kapernick bs. black athletes take your butts back to the black community, ditch your white wives and the rapper strip club life marry a black women go to church educate your black chillens start a d-mn foundation to give back to the community open businesses in our community instead of hi-tailing to another mans ecosystem and call it a d-mn day!!! Enough is Enough. President Trump is our President and obama didnt do a d-mn thing for the black community in any way form or fashion he didn't come up with prison reform hell, he was all behind locking up black men because he cannot identify with bm . Atlanta halftime was a freaking bust!! all because the liberals hate President Trump and now black folks are on the bandwagon losing all of their coins behind hollywood and not taking jobs or making appearances because of a weak knee and their blind loyalty to the democrats.The halftime show should have showcased the AMAZING TALENT of the Atlanta Music Industry but instead you marginalized your black a$$es into doing gigs at rundown night clubs that I wouldn't step foot in! BLACK FOLK wake up you are losing money for someone else's agenda. President Trump has strengthned this economy and he is standing between us and the globalists, abortionists,, and anti-family agendas that all harm the black community that our bm just can't seem to protect! (Watch the show "ATLANTA") Black people get your a$$ woke and stop fighting battles that are not yours. These black athletes who refuse to go to the white house like it is a badge of honor Shame On You Black folk are to DUMB to realize we built the d-mn white house when are you bm going to wake the hell up. A once in a lifetime opportunity and black Atlanta blew it for a bm that is no longer in the NFL out of sight out of mind! The democrat agenda to hate Trump while black America is losing their d-mn coins and hillery, obama and that includes michelle are making their d-mn coins in their nice homes with "WALLS" smdh all the d-mn day long!!!

  • Eileen

    its a tradition for some bm to go to the strip club should we stop that tradition? smh one is of Honor the other is of foolishness!!!

  • SunRiseBlossom

    I am so glad that "scrimmage game" is OVER!!!
    #AsMySisterSaid #Toiletbowl2019 #BoringAsHell

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Maybe the "greatest coach of all time", but not quarterback... (my opinion)

  • SunRiseBlossom

    LMBO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had a trump meal yesterday and I just #smh... That crap was cold by the time I pulled away from the building.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    He played on better teams than some of the greats like Marino or Montana. He had an easier path to the getting home field advantage in playoffs, since they played in the weakest division the NFL (Jets and Bill have been awful forever). And 2 teams absolutely choked away easy victories in the worst way (Seahawks and Falcons) to give him 2 of those rings. I'll give him his props, but I don't think it's a slam-dunk that he's unquestionably the best QB ever.

  • Yoni7

    First of all, it's WOMAN (singular). WOMEN (plural - more than one person).
    Secondly, are you mad that the halftime show was a bust because BLACK people didn't perform? I honestly think that's kinda what this is about. Black folks ALWAYS having to conform to someone else's standards and rules, when it's not reciprocated.
    Thirdly, just because we built the White House, they still hate to let us in.
    And lastly, you're mad at someplace/someone else's "once in a lifetime opportunity?" Why YOU so mad, niece?

    Excuse me, while I go mind my black owned business.

  • Yoni7

    I'm sure.

  • SunRiseBlossom

    Will someone sum this up for me... I'm not ready all that... Lol #smh

    I am so SICK of this kapernick bs. black athletes take your butts back to the black community, ditch your white wives and the rapper strip club life marry a black women go to church educate your black chillens start a d-mn foundation to give back to the community open businesses in our community
    ^^^^^^^^^^
    How is Kap going "back to" the black community when he was raised in a white one? Glad he sought out the black comm. on his own though.

    His lady is not white.

    He doesnt have any chillens as of yet.

    Not everyone attends a church. The issue with staunch Christians is they think everyone worships the same. His current lady is Muslim. However, Kap is familar with a church. Kaepernick was baptized Methodist, confirmed Lutheran, and attended a Baptist church during his college years per his bio.

    He HAS a foundation to help the community

    "Know Your Rights is a campaign to raise awareness of “higher education, self empowerment, and instruction to properly interact with law enforcement in various scenarios.” So far, the organization has run workshops in four U.S. cities to educate people about their rights, which it asserts in 10 points, including the rights to be free, healthy, brilliant, alive, and trusted. The campaign is entirely funded by the Colin Kaepernick Foundation, which aims “to fight oppression of all kinds globally, through education and social activism.”

    Now go play in traffic tonight around 7 pm. your local time zone. Be sure to wear dark colors.

  • A D N

    Nope...but I bet when they come for his daughter in an indictment, that will.

  • Yoni7

    It's word play. But when it happens, I'll let you know. LOL

  • A D N

    Kaepernick's movement is bigger than Trump. Trump is a 21st century problem which began centuries ago. That's the Kaepernick's movement. It's not a liberal, democrat, republican or any party issue...it's an American issue which needs to be changed. The black community will not make true and equal gains until America is truly Great...which was never Great! (We've made decent strides such as blacks are able to come out the cotton fields and not have to ride the back of the bus or can drink from water fountains in public). Yes, blacks built the White House, (big house) compared to the slave quarters, but how many governed as the Chief? One. And speaking of Obama, HE IS THE REASON, the economy is doing well. It takes years for the effects of the policies he put in place to see what we are experiencing. All the other misinformation...I have to stop because either you got it, or you don't. You don't.

  • Antigone Heart

    Well, effectuating collective consciousness to alternate life choices [in the interim] may seesawed from the stopgap of elation and belonging into an [eventual] maddening or discontented denouement.

    It inculcates a false certitude that enfeebles the application of mental faculties or the enterprise of free thought.

    As such it is healthy to remember that the first pilgrimage to identify with should be one of your own.

    Its the plantation mentality these men have and we are still in the same place. Remember men lead and if you say women can lead I encourage you to look at other communities and take note! Wm and other cultures don't shut it down only black folk as if being poor and dysfunctional is a great thing.Other communities are dead SERIOUS about their Dollars while black folk stuck on coins..smh! did you read the part about bm being responsible and protecting and marrying their women within the black community? what about building businesses within our community like Magic Johnson does, did you get that and yes we built the d-mn white House and any time we have the unique opportunity to walk through those doors we should take it. I have been to the White House! Thats Right!!! and it was AMAZING and yes I dined in the ballroom it was such a great moment to think as a bw here I am and yes my foremothers were smiling. It does sadden me that the Greatest Talent of black folk are right here in Atlanta and because of politics, broken knees (like the black community) and following behind the dummercrats and hollywood the black folk went back to the hoods and ghettoized nightclub instead of STANDING and saying President Trump we are here this is our talent and thank you for the dollars because the President dont deal in coins!

    My goodness really? can you comprehend anything! tongue in cheek, applicable to what applies, think critically my dear I spoke in the figurative you thought in the literal! Are you trolling me oh btw that is a direct answer.I take it you are one of those bw I assume you are a bw that is loyal to the kangz...go right ahead be loyal to a select group of men that could care less about your happiness and while you are at it. did you read the part about shared values and interest, monogamy, those attributes have no color they are intrinsic do you understand that?

  • dontgetblocked

    Blacks are doing better under President Trump than the Obama years. They're just too dumb to realize it. Notice how many white liberals have settled down. People are employed. The economy is good. Terrorism is under control. We have an excellent President. White people have realized it. Only extreme Hollywood liberals are still screaming bloody murder and of course, black folks. The Hispanics should be yelling the loudest. The poor illegal ones stay under the radar unlike 21 savage. Upper class Hispanics believe in the American dream. They're successful, Catholic and conservatives. Blacks could learn from them.

  • dontgetblocked
