Guys, as I had stated earlier, this is the more likely scenario. Here's my original quote, in case you missed it:



I know, I didn't miss it. I was the first person on this thread to say I have no doubt whatsoever that he's on someones payroll. Of course he is. The people responsible for using this guy didn't get tricked or anything like that. They will say now that they were, but that's nonsense.

I have to fully agree. I have worked as a special needs worker for both severely and mildly intellectually and physically challenged children, and have a daughter who was born deaf. Am I judgemental towards those who find humour in this? Darn right I am. Especially towards hyprocrites. However, I am glad to see most here have some morals.

I think schizophrenia would be a very valid excuse but there is no way I'm even going entertain that notion in this case. Unless he's going to claim that he had a schizophrenic episode at the other events he worked where people complained about his non-existent sign language skills.

I mean come on. I heard in an interview yesterday that he claimed this was the sign for Uraguay.

You just love name-calling, don't you? Who the **** are you to suggest that others here don't have morals? Your pious pomposity sickens me.

Thanks, critter. Took me a while to come up with the right phrase.

BTW- Has anyone contacted Jay Leno and the other "immoral" comics who've been having a field day with this? For the humor impaired it should be pointed out that no one is making fun of the deaf, their making fun of what the guy did.

I said I was glad to see most people here still have morals. You sir on the other hand like to put words into others posts and make it personally. You like to project a lot, and if you are willing to dish it out, at least be willing to except the same. Sounds like I hurt a nerve. Good. Lol.

Continue to project. I am now enjoying your uneasiness. Karma is a !@#$%. Smile

Sorry Danny. I read minds, I don't improve them.

You've called people here hypocrites and immoral. And that's just a fact.

You are obviously terrible at reading minds then. Lol

You should of figured out by now I was referring to just one person. And, considering only one person has directly responded to my post, you should have a good idea of who that person is. Well...at least your conscious knows who I was referring to. Conviction can sometimes be enough to lure the snake out from it's hole. Smile

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Or like Sammy the Signer facing murders charges or be on the US terrorist list. Your call. Either way, thankfully the World won't have to be subjected to a Barry JR.

The guy conned his way into being a fake interpreter to world leaders, do we not think the schizophrenia defense might also be a con? The guy is a pro.

I think it is very bad. Disrespectful yes but from a security point of view how lucky was it this was a jester and not a nut job?

SO many heads of state so close. Our own president. The lack of vetting by whomever is criminal! Our president deserves much better when he travels.

Agreed Danny. It was an incredible lack of security. I personally don't find it funny. I find it scary as hell that at an event with so many world leaders, that someone like this could have been inches away from them. What if he had been carrying a bomb.

Whatever. And I guess you know who I was referring to when I mentioned the humor impaired. Have you considered that show business might not be your best career path?

Yes. That was indeed the most disturbing thing about the incident. But, like I said, the comics are having a field day with it nonetheless. I love how Jay Leno had the video manipulated so it looked like the guy was making balloon animals while the President was speaking.

But you're right, Devious. I shouldn't have bothered responding to the guy, so in the future I won't.
