Patriots' Gronkowski Crashes Spicer's White House Press Briefing

President Trump drew parallels between his unlikely election victory and the New England Patriots during their Super Bowl celebration Wednesday at the White House.

Before the ceremony, star tight end Rob Gronkowski tried to inject some levity by crashing White House press secretary Sean Spicer's daily media briefing.

"Need some help?" Gronkowski, dressed in a suit and tie, playfully asked when he peered out from a corner of the room.

"Gronk", along with other New England players, were in Washington, DC, to get congratulated by the president for winning Super Bowl LI.

While all the Patriots players were invited to the White House ceremony Wednesday, some players chose to skip the visit for different reasons.

A team spokesman said the Patriots were aware of situation, but neither the team or Trump publicly addressed the news surrounding Hernandez.

Soon after that game, several prominent Patriots players - including Martellus Bennett, LeGarrette Blount, Devin McCourty, and Alan Branch - specifically said that they would not go because of President Donald Trump.

Malcolm Butler has not yet signed his first-round restricted free agent tender with the New England Patriots, which would pay him $3.91 million for the 2017 National Football League season. with that being said, this leads to some uncertainty about Butler future there, particularly after they spent a pile of money on cornerback Stephon Gilmore. Hernandez was acquitted just days ago of the 2012 shootings of two other men in Boston. No team has been this good for this long. Trump did not mention Brady, who was awarded the Super Bowl MVP award and whom he has called a friend, in his absence. But Brady also declined to attend 2015.

Mr. Trump also thanked Coach Bill Belichick for a letter he wrote congratulating the president on his win in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries, which Mr. Trump later read at a rally "in a very, very big and important state". Star quarterback Tom Brady, who drew controversy over his friendship with Mr Trump, was not in attendance. "I love you mom and dad!", he wrote in a caption. People know how I feel about it. "That's the beauty of what they do, they win as a team", said Trump, who compared the team's 25-point comeback against the Atlanta Falcons in February to his own political upset.
