Gronk’s babysitter is going to be looking for work after what happened Wednesday afternoon at the White House. 

In advance of the Patriots’ celebration with Donald Trump, Gronk popped his head into Sean Spicer’s press briefing and asked if the much-embattled press secretary could use a little help. Spicer seemed a bit peeved at first before eventually conceding, “Alright, that was cool.” (Of course he thought it was cool—Spicer is a big Patriots fan.)

I tell you what, Spicer probably wishes he had a guy like Gronk at his side when the press starts giving him the heat. 

The obvious question here is whether Gronk’s disruption was sanctioned by the White House or if he went rogue. His appearance at WrestleMania earlier this month already showed us that he loves kayfabe, and his theft of Tom Brady’s jersey at the Red Sox’ opener seemed like a bit, but you never know with Gronk.
