After a short, ten minute motorcade from Santa Monica Airport -- where plenty of people lined the route taking photos and waving, and plenty more were stuck in traffic trying to get on the six lane freeway -- we arrived at around 15:05 PST to a house just off palm-lined Sunset Boulevard.

The pool is now holding in vans outside the event, which we are told by the DNC is a closed door round table with POTUS and around 30 people hosted by Chuck Lorre.

A note from White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz:

Aboard Air Force One, the President had the opportunity to speak with South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, Senator Lindsey Graham, and Senator Tim Scott.  The President offered sincere condolences on behalf of himself and the First Lady, and pledged to make available any federal resources that can support South Carolina in the aftermath of last night's tragedy.
