New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski crashed White House press secretary's press conference during the Patriots visit to the White House on Wednesday.

"Need some help?" Gronkowski asked Spicer. 

"I think I got this, but thank you…maybe. I'll see you in a minute," Spicer said. 

After Gronkowski left the room, Spicer said "All right, that was cool. How do you follow that?"

The Patriots visited the White House to celebrate their fifth Super Bowl Championship.
