The Ease of the Wet Weather Metaphor

TIPS FROM THE POOL…INTO THE DEEP END

Bloomberg‘s White House Pooler Margaret Talev didn’t have to look far for a “wet blanket” metaphor to descrbe this morning’s wet weather as it relates to POTUS’ whereabouts. She writes, “The planned Marine One flight was scrapped with bad weather cited. Then the rain stopped. As we departed WH, the rain started up again and low clouds hung like a wet blanket.”

In a later report she continues, “POTUS gets an umbrella escort up the steps into the plane. It’s raining hard now.”

AFP‘s Tangi Quemener, a Travel Pooler, took over where Talev left off, writing, “POTUS walked out of his SUV, climbed the stairs under a black umbrella held by an AF1 attendant and was aboard at 9:46.”
