During Wednesday’s White House press briefing a New England Patriots star tight end made a cameo appearance offering aid to (the real) Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
“Sean, need any help?” a mischievous-looking Rob Gronkowski asked after emerging from a door behind the podium.
Spicer, a well-documented Patriots fan, replied with a smile: “I think I got this but thank you. Maybe. All right, thanks man. I’ll see you in a minute.”
Spicer tried to compose himself and return to reporters’ questions. “All right, heh, that was cool … How do you follow that?” he said.
Gronkowski and many of his Patriots teammates were at the White House to be honored for their win in January’s Super Bowl LI.
