Subject: In town Travel pool #5 - departing the ritz
The motorcade is departing the Ritz, where a small crowd had gathered outside, at 6:38 pm Eastern time. Your pooler did not see POTUS this time.
Funny moment as we waited for departure: a tourist in a car with NYC plates turned down the road where we were positioned, only to quickly hear the bleats of sirens and then, slowly backed her car out again.
We are rolling.
