    So he gave the speech without a Teleprompter. You're as reliable as always!

    LOL! Thank you for including the video that refutes your post. It takes going all the way to three seconds into the video to see the Teleprompter setup.

    Oh, the invisible teleprompter setup! Didn't know that already had those in production.

    Only the Liberals believe using a teleprompter is worse than high crime, death and destruction... None of which ever involved Hillary. Innocent through and through she delights the believers.

    Obama using a teleprompter speaking to a kindergarten class:

    Pathetic.

    Oh, I see. The Teleprompters were located about ten feet away from the podium. That's not how they're supposed to work. Think maybe Trump decided he didn't want them.

    Go, Trump!

    No, that was normal. Placement is so they’re not visible to front-facing perspective cameras.

    Not 10 inches to the side...10 feet or more! And you can tell while watching him speak that he never looked away from the camera in front of him.

    What a statesman!

    Listen, I’m rooting for Trump. But he read from teleprompters tonight, he did the same for his speech groveling to AIPAC, also in his foreign policy speech where he said he wants a pro-peace, noninterventionist foreign policy. To pretend he didn’t use teleprompters tonight is very intellectually dishonest.

    Show me how he did it then. Look at the photo you posted and tell me how he could possibly see the Teleprompter panels from where they were placed.

    Seriously, who cares? there is nothing wrong in using teleprompters, especially if it's for particular occasions in which you can't mess up.
    It actually leads me to believe that Trump can do both prepared and unprepared speeches.

    Yeah, how could Trump ever see teleprompter screens 4 feet from the podium. Impossible!

    why would trump need a TelePrompTer when he just rattles off anything that pops into his head? it is not like he repeats the same info over and over it is always new and unique.

    Pursuing the physics of this, I don't think Teleprompters work by peripheral vision. Trump would have had to be turning his head to the left and right to read the panels. Watch his speech; he kept staring right at the camera.

    Maybe he's got exceptional peripherals, but I doubt it.

    You must be projecting We don't believe using teleprompters is a bad thing at all. That's a stupid right wing (and Trump) belief.

    Also don't believe she is innocent in everything. But then I don't think Trump is innocent in the Trump U case either.

    Sure, from the first point I started watching. It is so obvious he’s reading from teleprompters.

    “I will make you proud of your party and our movement, and that’s what it is: a movement.”

    Reading from teleprompter

    Quickly glances back to make sure he’s still reading it correctly

    Def reading off the prompter, probably good after his sound bites over the last couple weeks.

    Yep, this shows 100% that Trump wasn’t looking at and reading from the teleprompters!
