11. I agree, I think he does.
IMO they would be more effective if he didn't use the prompter. And if he speaks enough so that he can't remeber what he's supposed to say, maybe he should just speak less.

Supply and demand - the words mean more.

One of the first rules of public speaking is you need to look your audience in the eyes. You can't do it when you're reading lines.
