WASHINGTON (WPRI) — New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski paid a surprise visit to the White House briefing room during Wednesday’s televised briefing.
Gronk popped his head into the room and jokingly asked Press Secretary Sean Spicer – who is a Rhode Island native – whether he needed any help, drawing laughs. “I think I got this. But thank you,” Spicer responded.
The Super Bowl champions are visiting the White House to accept congratulations from President Donald Trump for another NFL title.
Spicer, a Patriots fan, seemed to appreciate the interruption, saying: “that was cool.”
