That Awkward Moment When a Donald Trump Question Stumps Obama Propagandist Josh Earnest [VIDEO]

Obama White House paid liar Josh Earnest was left speechless momentarily on Wednesday when asked to respond to an idea that Donald Trump recently suggested.

Speaking in Iowa on Tuesday, the outspoken Donald Trump was enthusiastically applauded after he recommended, presumably tongue-in-cheek, that teleprompters — the kind that tell Obama depends on for almost every word that comes out of his Marxist mouth — should be outlawed for politicians running for the presidency.

“These other guys, they’re going around, they make a speech in front of 21 people. Nobody cares. They read the same speech — deet-deet-deet,” Trump mocked. “They have teleprompters. I say we should outlaw teleprompters (loud cheers) for anybody, right? — for anybody — for anybody running for president.”

After CBS White House correspondent Mark Knoller asked Josh Earnest whether such a ban would affect Obama “adversely,” the Obama White House spokesman got completely tongue-tied.

“Um, uh, I don’t have any, uh…well…I’ll just, uh, that’s a…that’s a tough one to, uh, to respond to I think,” a stumbling, mumbling and bumbling Earnest responded. “Uh, uh, I-I think what I’ll say is, um…certainly, each of the candidates has an opportunity to choose how they deliver their remarks in public, and people are much more focused, not on how they deliver their remarks, but actually the substance of their message,” he answered, finally recovering somewhat, saying that candidates in both parties won’t be judged on whether they us a teleprompter.

Donald Trump, and of course Ted Cruz are the two presidential candidate who depend the least on teleprompters or prepared speeches.
