You got this, bro? New England Patriots tight end Rob “Gronk” Gronkowski crashed Sean Spicer’s White House briefing on Wednesday, April 19, as he and his teammates toured the estate after their Super Bowl win. Watch the video above to catch the funny moment!
Spicer, 45, was taking questions from a room full of reporters when Gronkowski, 27, poked his head through a curtain to Spicer’s right.
“Need some help?” the jokester football player asked, visibly startling Spicer, who responded, “Uh, I think I got this, but thank you.”
“You sure?” Gronkwoski asked, to which the flustered Spicer smiled and said, “Uh, maybe. Thanks man, I’ll see you in a minute.”
Gronkowski and several members of the Patriots team were at the White House to celebrate their February Super Bowl victory with a visit with President Donald Trump and a tour of the White House. (Numerous players opted out of the opportunity, including star quarterback Tom Brady, who released a statement hours before the proceedings explaining that he was unable to attend due to “personal family matters.”)
Twitter immediately lit up with memes about the moment, with many Twitter users poking fun at Gronk’s inevitable run for office.

Gronk’s been to the White House a couple times but this is the first time he was one of the smartest guys there

But really… Gronk’s press briefings would probably be more coherent than Spicer’s.

I’d actually prefer Gronk as Press Sec. There’d at least be something fun to look at.

gronk was at wrestlemania two weeks ago. today, the white house briefing room. he’s one big protest away from honorary forrest gump status.
