VPOTUS pool report #1

Good evening from the Gridiron dinner, a white tie affair hosted by the Gridiron Club.

As you're well aware, the president is currently in Palm Beach. Headlining the event instead is the vice president.

Founded in 1885, the prestigious journalistic organization hosts its event each year at Washington's Rennaisance hotel.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi represented Democrats. She spoke before pool was allowed in. Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst also delivered remarks.

Pooler arrived separately from the VP and did not see him enter. He was expected to attend the entire dinner.

He took the podium at 10:37 pm. Highlights to come. Full transcript after.

Notable non-journalist spotteds at the dinner: Sen. Tammy Duckworth, Jeff Bezos, Penny Prtizker, Madeleine Albright, Josh Earnest, Valerie Jarrett, Kellyanne Conway, Sen. John Cornyn, Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, Sean Spicer.
