This picture was on the cover of the dead tree edition of today's New York Times. Not too long ago, conservatives took the fact that President Obama used a teleprompter as evidence that he was both clueless and unfit for the presidency. For the last few months the Trump campaign has allowed its candidate to be photographed with a teleprompter to show that he can be a responsible person who is fit for the presidency.
Sure the Obama-teleprompter thing was always stupid. And it was just part of a larger effort to make stuff that all presidents routinely do look incompetent or evil when Obama does those same things. It is just remarkable to see the sudden U-turn on the teleprompter issue.
