During a US State Department press briefing on ISIS a reporter was called out by spokesman John Kirby for playing the augmented reality game Pokemon Go.
“You’re playing the Pokemon thing right there, aren’t you,” State Department spokesman John Kirby asked a reporter during the daily briefing. Kirby had been in the middle of discussing ongoing efforts by the anti-ISIS coalition to fight the terror group.
The reporter, who hasn’t been identified, responded, “I’m just keeping an eye on it.”

Kirby resumed talking about the coalition — saying the fight “won’t be easy” and the department is “clear-eyed about the work” it has to do.
Then he circled back to the Pokemon Go playing reporter, asking him, “Did you get one?”
The reporter responded that he did not, because “the signal’s not very good.”
Kirby said, “I’m sorry about that” before continuing the briefing.
