Subject: In-Town Pool Report #2
Marine One landed on the South Lawn at about 11:02 pm. The President walked to the Residence, ignoring a shouted question. The shout was “Who do you believe is responsible for the crash?” The shouter was Jim Acosta of CNN.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest sends this explanation for the oddly delayed deplaning at Joint Base Andrews. During a chance meeting with Josh in the Palm Room, he informed the pool that the package was at the White House, not at Andrews.
“Due to a suspicious package, the President’s departure from JBA was delayed. The President returned to the White House after the package was cleared.”
All of the senior aides spotted at departure were spotted upon arrival. No DANG shirts.
We have a full lid.
