Obama gaffes his telecue

If you're familiar with the scene in Anchorman when someone has a bit of fun with Ron Burgandy's autocue (Hi I'm Ron Burgundy?? Who added the question mark?) then you'll appreciate how difficult it must be for Barack Obama sometimes.

Obama, oft dubbed The Auto-Cue King, had an embarrassing moment during a speech recently when his autocue jammed. The President endured an awkward few seconds in which he looked bewildered and at a total loss as to how to continue without the script, before he regained his composure and soldiered on. One YouTuber described his left to right autocue reading style as akin to 'someone watching a tennis match.'
