Hahahaha! Another gaffe by the moron!

Did the teleprompter malfunctioned, or the moron forgot how to read it?

Hahahahaha!

This is not only on the president but his staff which is supposed to confirm information before putting it into a speech that will be heard by the man's own unit. Did someone not consult with the Unit Commander? This is an embarrassment not only to the President but his staff.

There is no way an apology would suffice for this mistake.

This administration doesn't make mistakes. If President Obama says he's alive, well then he's alive.

What happened is that Obummer unplugged himself from his teleprompter. That's why he botched the speech. The guy is completely clueless without his teleprompter.
