Biden teases Obama over teleprompter dependenceMay 28th, 2009 - 1:45 pm ICT by ANI
Colorado (US), May 28 (ANI): Vice President Joe Biden teased his boss President Barack Obama on Wednesday over his teleprompter dependence.
Speaking at the Air Force Academy commencement ceremony in Colorado, Biden poked fun at Obama’s known affinity for his teleprompter.
Biden made the crack about Obama’s crutch after a strong gust of wind blew over one of the vice president’s teleprompters.
Fox News quoted Biden as saying then: “What am I gonna tell the president when I tell him his teleprompter is broken? What will he do then?”
The crowd laughed at the joke made at the expense of the absent president, who was in Las Vegas at the time.
Luckily for Biden, one teleprompter was still standing and the mishap was toward the end of his remarks. He recovered and thanked the cadets for their service to their country. (ANI)
