The New England Patriots have taken our nation’s capital by storm Wednesday, ahead of their visit with President Donald Trump.
And while quarterback Tom Brady won’t be there to visit with his pal, Rob Gronkowski seemed in fine spirits, crashing White House press secretary Sean “Holocaust Centers” Spicer’s afternoon press conference.
“Need some help?” Gronk said, poking his head out from a side door.
“I think I got this, but thank you,” Spicer said, sheepishly.
Spicer, a Rhode Island native and Connecticut College alum, is quite a Patriots fan, and has made no secret about it on Twitter:
Hey Matt Lauer, after the interview, wanna watch the Pats win the Superbowl at my place? @todayshow

4 games for unproven charges? Goodell should be suspended #StandWithBrady

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

Patriots headed back to Superbowl and a Republican President in November – 2012 will be a great year

Inversely, the Patriots seem to be big fans of the Trump administration. Team owner Bob Kraft, who was seen dining with Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the president’s private golf resort, contributed $1 million to Trump’s inauguration committee, newly released records from the Federal Election Commission show.
