It stands to reason that after winning the largest sporting event in the country, an athlete would be filled with positive energy. 

But that’s not the case for New England Patriot’s safety Duron Harmon. 

TMZ caught up with Harmon while he was walking with his son. Harmon was asked whether or not he would be attending the teams victory celebration in the White House.

“Naw, man!” Harmon was quick to reply. “They don’t want me in the White House, man.”

There have been no reports that anyone in the White House has something against Harmon. This Super Bowl was also relatively tame in terms of protests or demonstrations.

So who is it that doesn’t want Harmon there? Or could it be that Harmon himself, just doesn’t want to be hosted by President Trump?

That seems to be the more likely case, as Harmon could barely contain his excitement when the reporter asked if Harmon would be interested in meeting with former President Barack Obama.

“Obama, man, come holler at me man!” Harmon exclaimed. “We love you over here man!”

Harmon is the first player to state he would pass on visiting the White House. It’s sad that he failed to set a more respectable example, something younger generations could look up to.

    • I concur! I’m sick and tired of these kids thinking they’re the special ones. It’s a privilege and an honor. It
      makes me wonder if their parents didn’t teach them manners? If you ask me, The WH and POTUS shouldn’t invite anyone anymore. They should have to submit an application and be accepted. For now just go to Disney where they can act like the kids they are!

    • AMEM Ross. I GUARANTEE ALL OF OUR NEW ORLEANS SAINTS WOULD BE HONORED TO BE INVITED ! I like THE PATRIOTS. Although we boycotted the super bowl, I was rooting for them all day . The Saints should have been there !!!!!!!! CHEATING REFS. WINNERS NEVER CHEAT & CHEATERS NEVER WIN! I never even heard of this harmon. Yes, go and visit obama……. he did SO MUCH for our GREAT NATION! HA,NOT!! # GEAUX SAINTS & CONGRATS PATS!! My Prayers were answered. Thanks to every player except the cry baby. You are an embarrassment to THE PATRIOTS ORGANIZATION!!!!

  1. I am so disappointed if players don’t go to White House. We all have different opinions and that’s okay. But we need to put that aside and respect the White House. Younwon as a team and you should show up as a team. I am so angry with the patriots that don’t go. Shame on them. They aren’t showing a good example 😔

  2. Can’t beleive he doesn’t want to meet the Best USA President ever!!!
    But would like to meet OBAMA,the worst USA President Ever.

  3. WHO CARES IF DURON HARMON GOES TO THE WHITE HOUSE…HE IS A NOBODY !!! WHEN WILL THEY WISE UP AND KEEP POLITICS OUT OF SPORTS. DURON WE ARE NOT GOING TO MISS YOU.
    NOBODY KNOWS WHO YOU ARE ANYWAY…SO YOU WON’T BE MISSED. IN FACT THIS IS THE FIRST
    TIME I HEARD YOUR NAME…DIDN’T HEAR YOUR NAME DURING THE SUPERBOWL GAME EITHER.
    SO WHAT I AM SAYING IS NO ONE GIVES A RATS ASS.

  4. I HAVE BEEN A SEASON TICKET HOLDER FOR OVER 25 YEARS. I AM TOTALLY EMBARRASSED BY HARMON AND THE MCCORTY BROTHERS FOR STATING THEY WILL NOT GO TO THE WHITE HOUSE. WHY???? BECAUSE PRESIDENT TRUMP DIDNT LIKE KAPERNICK KNEELING? THESE ATHLETES ARE DISGUSTING.

  5. To each his own on the WH visit. If he didn’t want to go, he could stay home. I guess he wanted publicity. He will not be missed.

  6. He is an anti American that should not have a job or be in America period….he needs to be removed from our great country…all of his assets should be confiscated…..

  7. I am a n avid Patriots fan and cheered them on during the Super Bowl. My family, a large one, are all supporters of the patriots. If this man stays with the Patriots we will never watch them again. He has to be an idiot to turn down the president. If he is for the oppressed, put his big money where his mouth is and help his oppressed people. How about our veterans who fought and died foe the American flag and the American people – they are true heroes, not this over paid football player.

  8. Sadly, only a small percentage know that Hussein Ovomit is a communist. And many who would be shown that wouldn’t care. Some sad people living in our country today, and wasting good oxygen.

  9. I am sure he is doing the best he can to make decisions not based on hate. After all things are much better for people of color than they were under the Obama administration. Well now let’s think about this, maybe he is making a poor decision but certainly the best he can do. Or maybe he is embarrassed about being a Patriot, or is he a patriot? I think things will be ok and we all can go on without him, his choice is his choice.

  10. The WH is better with people like Harmon Not around. Too bad the Patriots didn’t see what a Patriot Harmon WAS NOT. Fools like him just like the money and the attention. So he can just take his unearned income and get lost.
