CNN Host Big News: Trump Will Use Teleprompter For Speech Tonight

And this is news, why?

Hold the phones and stop the presses! CNN's Brooke Baldwin had a panel discussion on Donald Trump's meeting with the GOP today with one Trump supporter, one hater and Clay Aiken, a former congressional candidate, Idol winner and Bernie supporter The talk was about Trump's appeal at being an outsider and Aiken agreed that the country does want outsiders, but outsiders who have a plan.

Aiken: Trump's foreign policy is essentially speak incoherently and carry a big stick...

Baldwin: But tonight, hang on a second, this is big news, that he has a teleprompter!!!!

They are discussing Trump's speech before AIPAC, which can be viewed on

I'm not attacking Brooke for saying that. She's being facetious about Trump actually doing a speech and reading it instead of improvising gibberish, but the idea that Trump is using a teleprompter is news at all, shows you how far we've sunk in this primary season.

Can you help us out?
