White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer got a surprise visitor during Wednesday’s press briefing – and he was ready to be put to work.
New England Patriots tight end Rob “Gronk” Gronkowski snuck in to the side of Spicer’s podium, interrupting the press secretary to ask, “Sean, need some help?”
Chuckling, Spicer responded, “I think I got this but thank you.”
The 27-year-old double-checked, joking, “You sure?” before leaving the room and the laughing reporters behind.
Admitted Spicer of the pop-in, “All right, that was cool.”

His offer of aide for Spicer comes after the press secretary made inaccurate comments about Adolph Hitler during a recent briefing. Spicer apologized for his statements the next day.
