Robert Gibbs Confiscates Noisy Cell Phone

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs (PS2POTUS–did I just coin that?) had a good natured “C’mon!” moment during the briefing today when a cell phone interrupted his explanation of the President’s decision not to release detainee abuse photos. He asked Human Events’ John Gizzi to “just put it on vibrate, man!” He then confiscated the phone and tossed it to a staffer in the room behind the stage.

CBS’ Bill Plante’s phone was next, though he trotted out of the room to finish the call before PS2POTUS could take his phone too.
