Obama's stolen TelePrompTer has been recovered, and Conan O'Brien shows why continuing without it could have been, um, awkward
Mock President Obama for his TelePrompTer use all you want — and political pundits certainly do — but as Conan O'Brien illustrated with some clever editing on "Conan," it's best for everyone that the TelePrompTer stays in the picture.
Watch Coco's clip:
Fortunately, the stolen van that carried Obama's TelePrompTer, along with $200,000 worth of audio equipment and presidential seals that are placed on the president's lectern, were recovered on Monday, the Los Angeles Times reports.
The van had been stolen from a Courtyard Marriott near Richmond and was recovered at a Holiday Inn Express near the Richmond airport.
A Defense Information Systems Agency spokeswomen confirmed the van had been recovered and said the investigation into who stole it is ongoing.
At least we know the thief's hotel preference.
