Hilarious video: Presidential seal falls off mid-speech

October 5, 2010


barry’s need for signage every time he speaks gave the audience a chance to laugh out loud at him.

He was telepromptering at the 2010 Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit and just as he said the words: “We cannot sustain” the presidential seal fell to the floor with a clunk.

Not all the audience laughter was benign (0:29).

Vodpod videos no longer available.


Whoops! Was that my…uhhh…oh goodness! That’s alright. All of you know who I am.

Curiously freudian. But for a telemprompter telling him what to say and a sign telling the audience who he is supposed to be – no one would know who he is or what he stands for.

But I’m sure there’s somebody back there that’s really nervous right now. Ha-ha-ha Don’t you think? They’re sweating bullets back there right now. Ha-ha-ha. Where were we?

He wasn’t kidding. Someone will hear about it. Can’t help but wonder if Robert Gibbs did it on purpose. He’s made fun of barry’s need for signage before. (Can’t find the post.)

Recall the barry-designed presidential seal.
