Pool Report #3: Two things not on official sked
Glenn Thrush • The New York Times
May 18, 2017: 01:55 PM

Your pooler has discerned two activities not listed on the president's official public schedule.

1. The lunch billed as a Gary Cohn/Potus chat-and-chew featured other diners -- network and cable biggies, including George Stephanopoulos of ABC, Scott Pelley of CBS and MSNBC's Greta Van Susteren, per network and WH folks. There were a bunch of others I don't know or couldn't nail down.

2. POTUS and VPOTUS dropped by a Roosevelt Room meeting of Jared Kushner's innovation pod. We only know this because Dan Scavino, the WH social media director, tweeted blandly about it and was in a sharing-enough mood to include a pic (included below) and a 'USA!' with a little stars-and-stripes emoji.

Participants we could ID:

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers
Rep. Kevin McCarthy
GOP strategist Matt Lira
Others -- who knows? -- feel free to tweet IDs.
