Happy Martin Luther King Jr Day
Pool was ushered into East Room at 12:52 where a few hundred have gathered to watch Potus fete the Chicago Cubs.
Josh Earnest and Rahm and Ari Emanuel are seated together in the front row. Valerie Jarrett is here in the front row as well and David Axelrod who came in at 1:12 wearing a "Bryant Rizzo '16 Make Chicago Great Again" t-shirt under his suit jacket. In the center of the room is a big "44" sign and the Cubs' World Series trophy. Lots of Cubs baseball caps, shirts and jackets in the audience, and a few Cubs-appareled small children.
The Cubs players filed in at 1:38 to much cheering, 33 minutes behind schedule.
