in-town pool report #2 - arrival & lid
John Bennett • Roll Call
April 16, 2017: 06:47 PM

After an uneventful 12-minute drive, the Beast pulled into the White House complex at 6:24 p.m. Your pooler did not see POTUS exit the presidential limousine, partially because of the size of the motorcade forced our van to park near the bottom of the driveway.

At 6:40 p.m., the White House called a travel/photo lid.

Tourists lined the Tidal Basin and National Mall as the motorcade made its way to the White House. Some waved, many smiled, just about all were taking cell phone videos or pictures. One gentleman at the Tidal Basin used a gesture involving both middle fingers to express himself.
