Spicer attempted to clear up the confusion regarding the direction of the USS Carl Vinson, stating that the administration was correct in saying an armada was heading to the Korean peninsula because "it's headed there now." He later added, "I'm not the one who commented on timing."

One fun thing: New England Patriots player Rob Gronkowski poked his head into the briefing ahead of the team's meeting with Trump, and asked Spicer (a big fan) if he needed any help. "I got this," Spicer laughed, later adding, "That was cool."
