I remember the first time I watched “Anchorman,” the 2004 hit comedy starring Will Ferrell. It was an instant classic, and one of the most quotable movies of all time. Countless memes were birthed from his hilarious scenes, including the idea of someone being so vapid and disconnected that they’ll read anything their teleprompter says.
If you want a quick laugh, here’s Ron Burgundy, Ferrell’s character, demonstrating.
Little did anyone know that we’d end up with a real-life Ron Burgundy in the White House nearly two decades later. Joe Biden has had numerous fights with his comically oversized teleprompter (see here, here, and here), and on Friday, he channeled Burgundy by repeating the instructions “end of quote” and “repeat the line” while squinting to see the oversized font in front of him (Biden can’t use a regular teleprompter, so he uses an enormous television instead).
