Bo Escapes White House During Walk with Obama After Teleprompter Fails to Display "Bo Stop!"

Washington, D.C.--Bo, the Obama's pet dog, escaped the White House grounds during a walk with the President after a teleprompter failed to display the words "Bo stop!"

"The President's used these same teleprompters to sneeze, and even burp," said a White House spokesperson. "They're usually very reliable."

The White House audio-visual department blamed the mishap on "the anger resulting from the last eight years" and "Republican obstructionism."

Administration technicians are reportedly developing a backup plan in the event of future teleprompter malfunctions that involves a series of suspended mirrors and sticking yellow Post-it notes on the President's forehead.
