Hampton says he'll skip '85 Bears White House party

September 29, 2011 (CHICAGO)

Hampton, whose play on the Bears' defensive line earned him induction into the NFL Hall of Fame, says he is "not a fan of the president" and was upset that his children were not invited.

The White House reception is scheduled for October 7th.

The 1985 Bears never got a White House reception back in 1986. It was canceled due to the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster.
