Watch Pokémon Go interrupt an ISIS briefing at the State Department

Was the reporter named Wario?

A State Department spokesman was delivering the daily briefing to a group of reporters when he called one out for playing Pokémon Go, CNN reports.

"You're playing the Pokémon thing right there, aren't you," spokesman John Kirby said, interrupting himself in the middle of an update about ongoing efforts by the anti-ISIS coalition to fight the terror group.

"I'm just keeping an eye on it," the reporter responded.

After finishing the briefing, Kirby looked back at the reporter to ask if he got one.

"No, no the signal’s not very good," the reporter said.

Kirby responded "I'm sorry about that."

Yes, Kirby. KIRBY!!!!
