Suddenly, Trump Reading From A Teleprompter Is A Bad Thing

For eight years, we were treated to the Greatest Orator Ever!!!!! speaking from a teleprompter. Conservatives even came up with a name for Obama’s teleprompter: TOTUS. Teleprompter Of The United States. And discussed TOTUS as if it were alive. There were lots of jokes about this, most in jest, some nasty. Because, when it came down to it, Obama was barely able to speak in Adult without TOTUS.

Now, let’s be honest: for all the jokes about Obama speaking with TOTUS, the man gave great speeches using TOTUS. No one on the right really thinks poorly of Obama for using teleprompters to give speeches, because so many politicians do, at least on longer ones. But, get this

From the screed by Andrew Rosenthal (via Twitchy)

First as a candidate, and now as president, Donald Trump has drawn fire for promising the moon and stars without giving the slightest hint of how he intended to obtain them. In fact, as Tuesday night’s speech to Congress demonstrated so clearly, the president is actually a master of the art of diminished expectations.

On Tuesday night, we are told, he looked sober and presidential, when all he actually did was read a speech from a Teleprompter without veering off into one of his incoherent rants. It’s hard to believe that even the ill-disciplined and narcissistic Trump would have stood in the well of the House of Representatives and tried to lead a chant of “lock her up” or slapped journalists with the “enemy of the people” label that has been a favorite of dictators for more than a century.

That’s right, Trump is being slammed for just reading a speech from a Teleprompter. If you want incoherence, how about Obama unable to make his remarks because the teleprompter wasn’t programed? He was handed the speech, and still didn’t give it.

We’ve already had the media whining about Trump playing golf, something they never bothered with when Obama was in office. Now, the teleprompter. I can’t wait to see what other hypocrisy they drop on us.

    Well, since the obama years rendered any valid criticism of future presidents null and void, I’m not at all surprised the left has turned up the hypocrisy level to defcon 10.

    As for Rosenthal, he was the dishonest reporter that gave us the fake news about HW Bush and the grocery scanner years ago.

    Hypocrisy, double-standards, and fake news.
    The 3 pillars of the left.

    Trump needs to start getting mean, especially after the crap about Sessions. He needs to get moving on putting Hillary in jail and investigating Holder and Lynch. For that matter, he should investigate all the people around Obama, if not the man himself.

    Poor president Teleprompter Xanax…

    Xanax fired his national security adviser, Michael Flynn, after Flynn lied to Vice President Mike Pence about speaking to Kislyak about sanctions before the inauguration.

    Wow, that’s the same Russian ambassador that Jefferson Beauregard Sessions misled the Senate about.

      Another half-truth from the little loser guy.
      Kinda like joining but never serving in the Army, right?

  5. Jeffery says:

    So AG Jefferson Beauregard Sessions DIDN’T mislead Congress? He met with Russian ambassador Kislyak twice. He used campaign funds for the trip. He is trying to stop the bleeding by recusing himself from investigations into Russia’s involvement in the US election. He told the Senate that he didn’t meet with any Russians. “I didn’t have communications with the Russians.” He now says he didn’t mean to mislead Congress about his two meetings with the Russian ambassador.

    The AG of the US admits that he is so compromised that he can’t lead an investigation of an attack on America.

    Even the oleaginous Tucker Carlson of FOX News is bothered by Sessions’ explanations.
