White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, in shirt sleeves and with a No. 2 pencil above his right ear, is seen greeting returning workers shortly after 9 a.m. at the NW guard gate closest to EEOB. Photographers and TV crews have footage, for those interested in this welcome-back scene.
McDonough could be heard saying “Good Morning!” in a loud voice, patting the shoulders of workers and exchanging a few cheery remarks, and smiling at federal workers who are streaming through the mags after 16 long days.
