What would a championship performance be without an endearing child stealing the show?

Enter Jett Bennett, the 3-year-old daughter of New England Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett, who staged the biggest takeover of a postgame news conference since Riley Curry was in her heyday nearly two years ago.

Little Jett, perched on her pop’s lap, started talking … and talking. Not that her father immediately understood, but she was speaking about her dog, Wendy.

Evidently, Wendy had “peed on the rug.” Bennett himself had something of a childlike reaction to winning the Super Bowl. “It’s like waking up and eating cake for breakfast,” he said. “It’s super cool.”

Meanwhile, her father reiterated that he will be skipping the champions’ traditional visit to the White House, given that it’s now occupied by President Trump.

“It is what it is. People know how I feel about it,” Bennett said after New England’s dramatic, 34-28 win over Atlanta. “Just follow me on Twitter.”

The veteran tight end has long been outspoken on a variety of topics, as has his brother, Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett, including politics and the NFL. During his Super Bowl media session Monday, Martellus Bennett had said he “most likely” would not accompany New England to the White House if they defeated the Falcons.

“I don’t support the guy that’s in the house,” Bennett said of his reasoning (via NJ.com).

Bennett’s antipathy for Trump stands in contrast to the long-standing friendships Patriots owner Robert Kraft, quarterback Tom Brady and Coach Bill Belichick have with Trump. But the tight end said that he was “not really worried” about possibly upsetting Kraft by skipping the trip to Washington.

Bennett is not the first athlete to announce that he’ll bypass the customary White House visit in the wake of winning a championship. Previously, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert had said he would boycott the trip if his team defended its NBA title this year.

When Shumpert’s squad was at the White House with President Barack Obama in November, celebrating its June triumph over the Warriors shortly after Trump had won the election, LeBron James had said of a possible ceremony in the coming years with the new president, “I don’t know. ” James, who campaigned for Hillary Clinton, added, “That’s something that we’ll cross. We’ll have to cross that road if we get there. We’ll see. I would hope to have to cross that road. That doesn’t mean I wouldn’t want another championship.”

After winning the World Series in early November, the Cubs visited the White House in mid-January, while Obama was still its occupant, rather than sometime during the following MLB season, as is customary. However, that had more to do with the fact that Obama is a well-known Chicago sports fan (although partial to the White Sox) than any overt interest in protesting Trump’s ascension.

On Sunday, Bennett said that his team’s wide range of views on Trump was not a problem for its locker room. “You just don’t bring that to work,” he said. “We all have our beliefs. We accept people for who they are.”
