Patriots defensive end takes to Twitter to roast people criticizing his decision not to visit the White House

Chris Long was one of several New England Patriots to say he would not be visiting Donald Trump's White House after winning the Super Bowl.

The decision has opened Long and the others to criticism from people who think politics should be put aside and that the team should go for the celebration.

On Thursday, Long, who is a free agent, apparently had enough. He took to Twitter to provide rebuttals to some of the more frequent criticisms he's heard from his decision.

As pointed out by the Washington Post, the Patriots' website suggested Long, a 31-year-old defensive end, "likely" won't be back in Foxborough next season.

Long's Twitter rant drew the support of Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett, who also said he will not go to the White House.

Last week, Tom Brady, who did not go to the White House in 2015 due to scheduling conflicts, said visiting the White House is an honor and not about politics.

However, it seems nobody is going to move Long off of his position on this topic.
