Republicans use teleprompters too
President Obama’s use of teleprompters has long been the subject of jokes, most recently by Paul Ryan, and even humorous photos. However, Republicans also keep them around to use (and have for 60 years), as can be seen above in the image I took from yesterday’s USA Today video of the brief opening to their convention in Tampa.
The spacing between those two 45-degree mirror plates is wide enough to keep them out of view when zooming in to just show a speaker standing behind the lectern.
