Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski surprises Sean Spicer during White House press briefing

White House press secretary Sean Spicer was startled during his press briefing on Wednesday when New England Patriots player Rob Gronkowski made a surprise appearance.

Spicer was in the middle of answering a question when the Patriots tight end peered from behind the press room door, asking Spicer if he needed any help.

"Hey Sean, you need some help?," Gronkowski asked Spicer.

"I think I got this, but thank you ... maybe. I'll see you in a few," Spicer responded, looking dumbfounded at the 6'6" NFL star's presence.

"Okay, that was cool," Spicer finally stated.

The Patriots are set to celebrate their 2017 Super Bowl championship title with President Trump later on Wednesday, an event some New England players have decided to boycott.

Star quarterback Tom Brady announced earlier on Wednesday that he would not be in attendance at the White House event, citing "personal family matters" as reasoning for his absence.

Clearly, "the Gronk" is in the house.
