WASHINGTON (CBS) — Hail to the Gronk.
Rob Gronkowski was up to his usual antics at the White House on Wednesday as President Donald Trump prepared to honor the Super Bowl-winning New England Patriots.
The star tight end poked his head into the daily media briefing – during which Press Secretary Sean Spicer was discussing some pretty serious topics like the Iran nuclear deal – to say “Need some help?”
“I think I got this, but thank you,” replied Spicer, who is known to be a Patriots fan.
“You sure?” Gronkowski said.
“Uhh, maybe. . ,” Spicer answered before Gronkowski left. “Thanks man, I’ll see you in a minute.”
The Patriots were later recognized by the president in a 2:30 p.m. ceremony, during which Gronk was on his best behavior. Tom Brady said earlier in the day he would be skipping out due to family reasons.
