Trump reads out the phonetic spelling provided by aides on his teleprompter:



Text

WOW! #Trump's prompter often contains phonetic spellings because he knows so little and is such a bad reader. Today, George Wythe was spelled "With" for him. He just pronounced the name of this historical figure correctly and then, inexplicably, read out the incorrect spelling.


Then he tries to cover up his flub with one of his ridiculous asides.

3. Some people laughed thinking he purposely made a joke...

He NEVER jokes. He has zero sense of humor and the only times he does get a laugh is usually making fun of some innocence victim of his name calling and bullying. Asshole!

5. "Incredible names. Incredible names."

It's kind of a tie: Trump is a poor reader, but he's even poorer at preparation. He just goes out and wings it, knowing that nobody in the room dares correct him. So he stands there repeating "Incredible names, incredible names" with idiot profundity.

Compare and contrast with Bill Clinton. Sid Blumenthal, in his book about the administration, recounted the story of one of Clinton's State of the Union addresses. The teleprompter was loaded with the previous year's speech, and Clinton spotted it right away. Because he'd had spent weeks working on the speech, he just proceeded from memory while the wrong speech was unloaded and the right speech was loaded. The teleprompter operator started scrolling madly through the newly loaded speech until he caught up with Clinton. Imagine that happening with Bush the Stupider or Trump?

8. Strom Thurmond would read the "turn the page" prompt out loud while speaking in the Senate.

He'd drone on and on and then you'd hear, "turn the page" - which he did - and once again drone on and on until he needed to turn the page again.

Old racists. Young racists. Dead racists. Idiots all.
