A large pool was assembled for Oval Office spray with Korean President Park Geun-hye. Despite several requests from the pool wranglers, many of the photographers and camera crews ran toward the Oval Office doors with some significant pushing and shoving as many people attempted to squeeze through a small doorway at once.

POTUS smiled broadly as the pool pushed and shoved its way in. He made some inaudible small talk with the Korean president and declined to answer a question from the pool, saying he would answer questions at a press conference this afternoon. The pool was in the Oval Office for about 30 seconds.

The photographer melee didn't go unnoticed by VPOTUS either.

"You have a really dangerous job" Biden said to reporters as the pool exited, according to Bloomberg's Angela Greiling Keane.
