ZERO HEDGE — After the first debate, numerous videos surfaced alleging that Hillary was using some sort of teleprompter built into her podium to assist with answering questions or to offset whatever medical condition she’s dealing with. The videos were largely dismissed as “cooky alt-right conspiracy theories” and didn’t get much attention outside of those spheres.
But, when similar abnormalities surfaced on Hillary’s podium in the third debate, combined with the fact that she spent an awkward amount of time during her answers peering down rather than at the camera, we grew a bit more curious.
With that said, here is a video analyzing the abnormalities from debate 1. Notice that around 18 seconds into this video one can very clearly see a light shut off on Hillary’s podium even though there is no such light at Trump’s podium.
But, you don’t have to take that guy’s word for it. Here is the actual debate footage from NBC...fast forward to the 1:38:30 mark at the very end of this video and you can see the exact same phenomenon.
And here is a screen capture from the end of the debate. Notice there is a light on Hillary’s podium while Trump’s is completely dark.
But where things get really interesting is that the exact same phenomenon occurred at debate 3 this week as pointed out by the following video posted by Anonymous.
Again, as you can see, there seems to be a light on Hillary’s podium…
…but none at Trump’s.
And here is one more angle…
And the two together…
But again, no need to take our word for it as you can simply scan through the full debate footage posted by USA Today and see the phenomenon for yourself. Also note that, at numerous points while answering questions throughout the debate, Hillary seems to be looking down at her podium for extended periods of time rather than at the camera…to the point that it was actually awkward for people watching the debate live.
Don’t believe it? In the following video, fast forward to the 42:25 mark and watch Hillary’s eyes as she responds to the question…where is she looking?
Now, recall that debate 2 was structured as a town hall discussion so this type of cheating would not have been feasible. That said, oddly enough, debate 2 was the one that almost everyone universally thought she lost.
