Is this the best the White House can do? let press take pictures of the President through windows? not even in same room? only 10 seconds? (transparency? ah..I don’t think so…)

Subject: Pool report 1 – pool spray in Oval



At 11:18 am, the pool was brought to the windows outside the Oval Office for a photo spray. It lasted 10 seconds.


We spotted the president sitting at his desk, talking on the phone – his left hand to his left ear. He briefly fiddled with his pen. Several aides were sitting on the couches. The pool has requested a list but the pool did spot Tony Blinken, deputy national security adviser.


From the WH:


“The President speaks with His Majesty King Abdullah II of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. A formal readout will be provided later today.”


We were obviously not able to ask any questions of the president.


We have a lunch lid.
