If only there was a better way Senator… if only there was a better way.
Y’know I have never and will never get what the deal is with the right’s problem with teleprompters. There have always been speechwriters, not every word that comes out of a politicians mouth came out of their head. All teleprompters do is use technology to display speeches in a way that allows the politician to maintain eye contact with their audience rather than fumbling around with pieces of paper on a podium.
With the added bonus of not looking like a total fool on stage like this guy.
What the F is the difference between using a Teleprompter and reading your entire speech off of a piece of paper?? Answer: you look like a 6th grader when you do one of them.
