The Reverend Al Sharpton is a major figure in the modern civil rights movement and a pillar of the Democratic political machine, but as the Washington Free Beacon’s supercut Al Sharpton Versus The Teleprompter points out, he can’t read a teleprompter for shit. Just check out the four distinct ways he pronounces Rush Limbaugh’s name! And he doesn’t know how to say “Chipotle,” and isn’t that silly? He’s probably never even been there!

(Honestly, dancing around the racial politics inherent in a conservative political website making fun of the way an African-American political leader talks is exhausting, not to mention practically impossible. But let’s agree to collectively take our hands off of the keyboard, maybe pop some popcorn, and indulge in the childish, apolitical pleasure of giggling at the funny way Al Sharpton says “hubris.” Deal?)
