WH Pool Report 7

The carousel of rooms for tonight's reception continues. At 5:08 p.m. pool was brought to the mostly-empty State Dining Room for bipartisan reception planned with congressional leaders. Spotted: McConnell, Schumer, Cornyn, Ryan, Pelosi, McCarthy and Hoyer.

Light appetizers on hand, including meatballs, shrimp cocktail and sliders of some variety.

POTUS and VPOTUS joined them at 5:17 pm. Much of the conversation was inaudible. Schumer welcomed POTUS with a "Mr. President, nice to see you."

Pool left at 5:19 pm but we are now being resummoned at 5:27 pm.
