US President Barack Hussein Obama made a fool out of himself during an attempted attack on the Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump policies, when the desperately needed teleprompter malfunctioned.
The incident occurred on Wednesday when Obama gave a speech in Elkhart, Indiana, where he addressed the current US presidential campaign. Although Trump was never mentioned by name, it was clear who the American president was referring to.
Trump has on several occasions said that the US should prevent Muslims from entering the US, and that a wall should be built towards Mexico.
On social media, many people are wondering whether the President's teleprompter went out and that was the reason why he had no idea what to say next.
"Obama Tries to Trash Donald Trump and Turns into a Stuttering Mess | TelePrompTer malfunction... " actor James Woods writes on Twitter.
According to the New York Times, Wednesday's speech was Obama's first major intervention in the presidential debate. The reason why Obama is now interfering in the campaign is because of reports that democratic working-class voters are now betraying the party and go over to Trump.
The New York Times also believes that it is part of a personal revenge from Obama. In the spring of 2011, Trump questioned whether Obama was really born in the United States and thus has a right under the Constitution to be President of the country. The questioning erupted in a medial conflict that lasted several weeks and eventually forced the White House to make Obama's birth certificate public.
