Trump’s semi-apology to the American intelligence community was many in the audience stunned. Luckily, Trump’s team knew the possible outcome and had a laugh track ready to add to the audio board for the video version. “With the seven-second time delay, we had the had the chance to add laughs when the audience was silent, so our preparation went off without a gasp.”
The speech was mostly about the crowd size of his inauguration and referred to himself in the 3rd person several times.
The CIA declined to comment on his speech but noted, “Well, he showed up, so that’s good. I don’t think he realized he was standing behind a memorial wall celebrating the death of American heroes but at this time we already know he doesn’t know much about history.”
