What would you know? While former President Barack Obama needed a teleprompter to make small-talk, the New York Times is finally going after politicians who use the device. Of course, they waited until Donald Trump was President before they decided to do so.
Here’s the Tweet the Times sent out following his recent address to Congress:

Great – so would “Obama looked like a fool last night, and all he did was read from a Teleprompter” also be an appropriate headline following any speech he’d ever given?
The article linked to was authored by columnist Andrew Rosenthal, whose piece includes the usual leftwing drivel. Rather than acknowledge that Trump gave a great speech, he has to attribute it to him using a teleprompter. He writes:
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.
What is he going to do next? Attribute the fantastic speech to Trump’s speechwriter instead of him? Are we supposed to pretend that Obama either wrote a single one of his speeches or didn’t ever not use a teleprompter? Please.
@nytopinion Okay, after President Teleprompter Obama, this is just funny.

@nytopinion You sure you want to go there? Chap you squee’d over for 8 years used a teleprompter to say “Hello” when answering the phone.

Rosenthal apparently doesn’t have memory going back more than a few months, as I’ll leave you with a reminder of just how Presidential Obama was when his teleprompter went off.
Meanwhile, during his campaign, Trump gave EVERY speech without a teleprompter. There’s a zero percent chance Obama would be able to do the same.
