  32. Apparently the deaf and dumb interpreter at the Mandela memorial was a fake. Beyond hilarious.

  33. It was as empty as your hero’s words, Chimp.

  34. What is more worrying is that this is not the first time this joker has been used by the SA govt for the deaf and dumb interpretation purposes. Were there no red flags?

    Comment by The Emperor AKA the Size-ist. (03864d) — 12/11/2013 @ 3:59 pm

  35. If this guy had become a quasi-official government interpreter, I doubt he passed on any complaints from the deaf community.

    Comment by DRJ (a83b8b) — 12/11/2013 @ 4:04 pm

  36. @DRJ
    Lol. The govt seems to have thrown him under the bus, saying they never employed/hired him for the job. Leaves more questions than answers plus lots of laughing points.

  40. Ears Obamy!!!

    Comment by Icy (b0295e) — 12/12/2013 @ 11:18 am

  41. According to CBS radio (it’s the only news radio remaining in Chicago so bite me), the signing interpreter is a paranoid schizophrenic who was having hallucinations while Obama was speaking. Just three feet away! Damn! Just three f***ing feet! How close our country got to salvation.

  42. Larry Boy!

    For those without kids, find pictures :D

  43. Obama really does not like anybody taking candid photographs of him – even at a what you would expect would be a scheduled photo op!

    He often has his own photographer there instead.

    the signing interpreter is a paranoid schizophrenic who was having hallucinations while Obama was speaking.

    At least he is supposed to be.

    He was being interviewed at his home – after avoiding the prs for a day – by people from the CBS Evening News when they came to take him away to a psychiatric hospital.

    He insisted that he broke no law.

  45. If you look athe video, you can tell that the sign langage interpreter is signing much too slow.

    South African President Zuma’s patronage is apparently responsible for this. He was booed actually at the memorial.

    A week before there was someone talkking impeachment (other parties are getting abit stronger)

    The issue was improvements to his home. many were not really for security. Zuma says he paid for everything not security related.
