The degree to which Joe Biden uses teleprompters has been a hot topic since the former Vice President appeared to have used one to answer questions from AFL-CIO union members on Labor Day.
Before answering a question, Biden paused and asked a staff member to “move up” what’s been speculated to be a teleprompter.
Take A Look:
Here’s another instance, where Biden appears to be motioning his staff to change the teleprompter:

"And uh, in addition to that, uh, in addition to that, we have to, uh, make sure that we uh, we are in a position that we are, well, let me, let me go to the second thing. I've spoke enough on that." pic.twitter.com/2PoLxZnlaI

Fox News host Bret Baier hoped to get to the bottom of Biden’s teleprompter use while facing national press secretary for the Biden campaign TJ Ducklo on Thursday.
However, Ducklo refrained from answering any such question, and instead tried to spin it back at Baier, accusing the Fox host of helping the Trump campaign “funnel questions.”
“Has Joe Biden ever used a teleprompter during local interviews, or to answer Q&A from supporters?” Baier asked.
“This is straight from the Trump campaign’s talking points!” Ducklo replied. “And what it does, Bret, is it tries to distract the American people.”
Baier fired back, “They’re using it. They talk about it every day. Can you say ‘Yes’ or ‘No’?”
“They talk about it every day, Bret, because they don’t have a coherent strategy,” Ducklo responded. “They talk about it every day because they don’t have a coherent argument for why Donald Trump deserves re-election, deserves four more years. We know that he lied to the American people. We know that he has not shown leadership during this crisis, and they are desperate to throw anything they can against the wall to try and distract from that fact.”
“I understand, but you can’t answer the question?” Baier asked Ducklo, who responded, “I am not going to allow the Trump campaign to funnel questions through Fox News and get me to respond to that.” Video Below
