Reporter Busted Playing Pokémon Go During State Department Briefing

US State Department spokesman John Kirby was trying to talk to the press earlier today about the efforts to combat ISIS, but one reporter had more important things to do.

CNN reports that the unidentified culprit was busted by Kirby mid-talk, interrupting his terrorism briefing to say “You’re playing the Pokemon thing right there, aren’t you.”


The reporter replied “I’m just keeping an eye on it.”

After Kirby was done, he circled back around, asking “Did you get one?”

To which the reporter said no, because “the signal’s not very good.”

Better luck next time, dude.
