For whatever reason, President Trump wanted to award Bill Belichick with the Presidential Medal of Freedom before he leaves office. But Belichick just turned him down because of the Capitol riots:

In other words, he doesn’t want to have anything to do with President Trump after “last week’s events”. What a putz.
But you know what? I’m glad he turned it down because I honestly don’t think he deserves it anyway.
He’s a known cheater who got caught with this hand in the cheater jar. While he is undoubtedly a good coach, especially when he has one of the best quarterbacks in the league, he’s still someone who broke the rules in order to win and did it for years. How many Super Bowls did he steal?
