A note from Demetri Sevastopulo...

Dear colleagues - We failed to send a reporter for White House pool duty this morning due to an error about our turn in the pool rotation that was completely my fault. I know this is no consolation, but I want to offer my sincere apologies to everyone involved. Demetri

Here is the background from the White House on Potus and Vpotus' meeting this morning with the members of the 1983 North Carolina Wolfpack team and their families:

33 years after their 1983 Men's National Basketball Championship, the President was proud to welcome the North Carolina Wolfpack to the White House today to honor their historic win. The President and Vice President met briefly with members of the team and their families in the East Room. The team was previously unable to visit the White House to be recognized for their championship.

More coming shortly...
