The White House press briefing had a little bit of levity Wednesday, thanks to a member of the New England Patriots, who were at the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl victory.
Tight end Rob Gronkowski, commonly known simply as “Gronk,” busted into the briefing room for a bit of a joke during White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s remarks.
“Sean, need some help?” he asked, to laughs from reporters.
“I think I got this, but thank you,” Spicer replied. “Maybe. Thanks, man. See you in a minute. Hold on, one second. That was cool. How do you follow that?”
Spicer appeared not to know the gag was coming, but it’s unclear exactly who was in on the joke.
