Obama Flubs Teleprompter

President Obama had a little mix-up with his teleprompter at a speech Monday.

In an address to the National Academy of Sciences, Obama announced the formation of a President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology.

But shortly after specifying who will be on the new council, he started to introduce the names again. His teleprompter was at the wrong place.

Obama looked at his machine and asked for help. Here’s what he said:

“In addition to John – sorry, the – I just noticed I jumped the gun here,” Obama said and then paused several seconds, looking at the teleprompter.

“Go ahead. Move it up. I had already introduced all you guys,” he said, apparently to the prompter’s operator.

The audience reacted with a quiet laugh.
