Gronkowski crashes White House press briefing

AP

For those of you who had “Crash Sean Spicer’s Daily Briefing” in the “What Will Gronk Do At The White House?” pool, congratulations.

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski did indeed walk in to the press room during the Press Secretary’s meeting with reporters.

Need some help?” Gronk said.

And now we can start the pool for what Gronk may do next while at the White House. Possibilities include ripping off his suit jacket and dress shirt in one motion, pouring a beer on the head of POTUS, and/or attempting to spike the nuclear football.

    Any alternative facts? Like how the patriots were caught cheating?

    LMFAO he is such a fool but how can you not enjoy his foolishness.

    As if this White House needed one more buffoon in it. Sigh.

  5. bonerfartblog says: Apr 19, 2017 12:53 PM

    I’d take Gronk over the current clown crowd in the executive branch in a heartbeat.

  6. factschecker says: Apr 19, 2017 12:54 PM

    I saw people actually freaking out about this. “This isn’t a game!” Jeez.

    Lighten up Francis.

    Sadly Gronk’s antics may have been the most professional thing that has happened in that room in a long, long time.

  9. kylecleric says: Apr 19, 2017 12:56 PM

    Gronk would be a huge upgrade as press secretary.

  23. steelpenguin6687 says: Apr 19, 2017 1:16 PM

    Gotta love the hypocrisy…not long ago, the same people commenting on how funny this stunt was, were saying it’s “look at me” when other team’s players do stupid crap like this. That said…I do like Gronkowski..lol

  24. bleedingfacemask says: Apr 19, 2017 1:18 PM

    Spicy has desperately needed help since the first day he stood at that podium. And the man who finally comes to his rescue…?

  25. 400marios says: Apr 19, 2017 1:18 PM

    Gronk is the medicine you need when you take yourself too seriously. I want to see him pay a visit to the box when Goodell finally shows up at Gillette.

    Goodell has his minions working to find a way this enables him to steal another Patriots’ draft pick…

    I see an SNL cameo appearance in Gronk’s near future…

  35. mezanine10 says: Apr 19, 2017 1:44 PM

    Gronk was looking for Madame President and he won’t find her anywhere near the WH.

  36. sailbum7 says: Apr 19, 2017 1:49 PM

    The only way to deal with something like this is to laugh at it. To get upset would just make everyone uncomfortable and blow the incident out of proportion. Make a joke out of it and it will be forgotten in a day, get upset about it and it will stick in the news cycle for a week.

  37. terripet says: Apr 19, 2017 1:50 PM

    If Cam Newton did this, everyone would be up in arms, and the same goes for the rest of Gronk’s antics and party habits.

    For being an idiot? Lets face it Spicer would have been jailed a long time ago if being an idiot on stage was a crime. Seriously though, Gronk interrupted a daily press briefing not a Joint Cheif’s briefing on North Korea. It was an impulsive and childslish act, but not criminal.

  50. meadowlandssports says: Apr 19, 2017 2:11 PM

    Completely staged. If you think a civilian is going to randomly pop into the daily press briefing without everyone in the Secret Service and White House staff knowing about it, you’ve never been there.

  51. carcettiformayor21211 says: Apr 19, 2017 2:18 PM

    One does not simply crash a press briefing. Surely they coached this buffoon to get a laugh.

    That ‘idiot’ is laughing all the way to the bank, we could only wish you were 1/1000th as entertaining. Not only do I, and every other thinking person here, realize the whole thing was a setup, I actively cheer against his team twice a year. And yet somehow I still got a chuckle out of it.

    I can’t imagine how miserable it is to be you.

  63. seals1 says: Apr 19, 2017 2:59 PM

    Because interrupting to get your political point across is the new normal. I give him credit for not having a sign, a message t shirt or unusual outfit to get attention.

    Now that the goof ball has left let’s get back to work. Sounds like every day that Trump will deal with.

  64. metitometin says: Apr 19, 2017 3:06 PM

    Perhaps he could slap some handcuffs on Trump and place him under citizen’s arrest.

  65. wyrdawg says: Apr 19, 2017 3:13 PM

    lol. After all of the perfect lampooning on SNL of that situation, it almost did look like the beginning of another sketch.

    Someone had to put him up to it. Spicey’s probably a huge fan.. he sure did look smitten, didn’t he? Probably made that guy’s day.

    Shouldn’t we all just enjoy the moment and be happy we live in a country where these things happen from time to time and nobody gets arrested?

    Comparing Gronk’s aw’shucks farmboy type antics with Cam Newton, Sherman, or Marshawn Lynch is silly. The latter 3 have all drawn negative remarks because of their sour grapes and negative and childish press interactions- though Marshawn has a likeable side to him too.

    Gronk has huge possibilities in the entertainment industry, shades of Rock. His ceiling is very high and by the way, he is an extremely bright guy! The Dumb Jock joke he plays is on you! Gronk is an enteraiment agent’s dream. Call me.

    To Trump’s credit, he accepted the challenges for charity and had a bucket of water dumped on his head. To my surprise, the hair didn’t fall off onto his lap. Funnier, is the video of him at a football game with the wind flapping his hair up and down.

    With all the derisive division in US politics in general, and the antagonism between the people in the chairs and the people at the podium at every press conference, they could stand a little levity now and then. The idea that Gronk would ask Spicer if he needed a little help is called satire, and it was hilarious. I’m sure that it was staged, but none the less, quite funny.
