While GOP and conservatives figures hoped to see the day the president didn’t have his teleprompter, they probably didn’t expect it would get stolen.
According to NBC affiliate in Henrico, Virginia, a truck filled with President Barack Obama’s speech equipment, including a teleprompter, was stolen Monday evening outside of a Courtyard Mariott hotel.
The equipment was scheduled to be used for Obama’s trip to Chesterfield, Virginia on Wednesday. Those were the only items vandalized.
“No classified or sensitive information was in the vehicle,” a Defense Information Systems Agency spokesperson said. “We take incidents such as this very seriously and a formal investigation is continuing.”
