The Patriots are visiting the White House today for a ceremony celebrating their Super Bowl LI victory over the Atlanta Falcons. Rob Gronkowski took the opportunity to stop by a press briefing and offer press secretary Sean Spicer some assistance.
Spicer seemed to enjoy Gronk’s brief visit, which isn’t surprising, because he’s a huge Patriots fan.

as long as Tom Brady is in the #NFL they mind as well have a runner-up MVP so someone else gets a little exposure

Spicer won’t get to see Brady during Wednesday’s festivities. Brady was unable to attend the White House ceremony with his teammates, citing “personal family matters.” Other players from the Patriots’ Super Bowl LI team, like Martellus Bennett and Devin McCourt, chose to skip the White House visit for political reasons.
But Gronk was obviously there, and as usual, he seems to be making the most of it.
