Rob Gronkowski crashes Spicer's White House briefing: 'Need some

"I think I got this, but thank you", replies the press secretary, who is from Rhode Island and is reportedly a fan of the New England football team.

At the White House daily briefing, reporter George Condon asked Press Secretary Sean Spicer to name a single legislative accomplishment from Trump's agenda that he could boast when the 100-day mark hits.

According to Mark Daniels of the Providence Journal, 34 players were pictured in the team photo with Trump, as well as head coach Bill Belichick and owner Robert Kraft.

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski isn't usually seen in a tailored suit in the company of the Washington political elite.

Months prior, Brady skipped the White House visit hosted by President Barack Obama.

The announcement that Brady was not attending the event broke early Wednesday, and it definitely stirred up some surprise, considering the future Hall of Fame quarterback made headlines for his alleged support for Trump during the 2016 presidential race.

The reality is is that real-life "family matters" as his reason for not being able to attend.

Besides Brady, six members of the team were not expected at Wednesday's event. I'm going back to work on my bunker. "With the president having so many strong opinions and prejudices I believe certain people might feel accepted there while others won't".

It was unclear if the celebration with his parents was the reason Brady did not attend the Patriots' meeting with President Trump at the White House Wednesday.
