While the State Department spokesperson is capably monitoring the Russian hashtag situation, President Obama is overseas on an Asia trip.

There is of course a press pool with the president:

Tokyo, April 25, 2014

Good morning from the Okura Hotel, where President Obama is bidding a formal farewell to the emperor and empress before departing for Seoul.

Pool was ushered to a hold area at the end of a hallway in the hotel, where Obama, after a false start, walked down the hall.

Obama approached the media valets, and then the grilling started:

Asked by Julie Pace of the AP if he slept well, he said, “I’m still on 4 am time.”

Another reporter asked Obama if he like the ice cream dessert in the shape of Mt. Fuji served at the state dinner.

Obama nodded, saying, “They have the green tea at the bottom that I’ve spoken of having when I was six, and I was very pleased,” Obama said.

“It was delicious.”

What, no “on a scale of 10 to 11, how awesome is that tie you’re wearing?”

Having been given the opportunity to ask those important questions, the press pool had worn out its usefulness:

At the end of the 10-minute meeting, pool was ushered back to the reception where the doors initially swung shut in our faces.

The traveling press pool should be replaced with that Japanese robot — he was a lot more challenging.
