POTUS Pool Report 6

Your pooler has gotten many, many questions about the Trump-Comey hug.

Here are more details:

POTUS spotted FBI Director James Comey across the Blue Room and called out to him. "Oh there's James."

Comey walked up to POTUS. The two stretched out their hands to shake. Comey leaned into POTUS who then leaned into Comey and patted him on the back. POTUS appeared to whisper something in Comey's ear.

Various members of the pool are debating who hugged who and whether it should be called a hug, a bro-hug or half a hug.

Here, courtesy of ABC, is video of the encounter:


And with that, your pooler wishes you goodnight.
