A truck carrying President Obama’s podium, teleprompter and audio equipment was stolen in Richmond, Va., a local news outlet reports.
Sources tell WWBT/NBC12 that around $200,000 of presidential equipment was stolen from a Richmond Marriott hotel location in advance of Wednesday’s presidential visit to Chesterfield, Va.
When asked for his reaction, President Obama was unable to comment.
All of Obama’s upcoming speeches, meetings and family dinners will be canceled until a replacement Teleprompter is found and air-lifted to him.
UPDATE: TOTUS HAS BEEN RECOVERED UNHARMED.
Authorities tracked TOTUS to a farm just north of Charlottesville, Virginia, where a man had it hooked to his tractor and was using it to spread manure.
