More like bench Press Secretary: Rob Gronkowski crashes Sean Spicer’s conference


The New England Patriots are in Washington, D.C. today for the traditional post-Super Bowl victory White House visit, which means they brought along with them human viral content engine Rob Gronkowski.

And hey, guess what? While wandering the White House (apparently unsupervised), dude made some viral content.

Gronk popped into Sean Spicer’s daily press briefing and asked him if he could use a hand.

Spicer, in case you didn’t know, is a big Boston sports fan and appreciated the interruption.

But Gronk is much better known for his pass catching ability than his blocking and redirecting skills (although he should get more credit for his ability in that part of his game), so Spicer declined him on his offer to take the podium.
