Wow. In case you were wondering if Veep is real life…

As Kirby was mid-talk on his terrorism briefing, he glanced over to an as-yet unidentified journalist sitting in the room, and noticed the media member doing something unusual.

Kirby asked him a question that we can pretty reasonably assume has never been asked in the middle of a State Department briefing before in the history of the country (below):

"You're playing the Pokemon thing right there, aren't you?"

LOLz! Busted!!
