Bully Pulpit

Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

Gusty Winds Repeatedly Blow Reporter’s Hat Off, Forces Her To Laugh And Chase It

(By Matt Schneider, Mediaite) - Intrepid reporter Marissa Mike reporting in Palm Springs, California is willing to brave the elements to deliver news to her viewers. Even if it takes over twenty times to get it right and even if she is required to chase around her news hat as the strong winds repeatedly blow it off of her head.

In the blooper reel assembled below, the windy reporter tries to get the shot right but things keep going wrong. Either she confuses the location she’s reporting from, questions what the object is that she’s standing next to, or most hilariously, experiences the wind flip her baseball cap completely off. Why exactly she must wear the hat to deliver the news is not made clear, but without it we wouldn’t get to enjoy seeing her dash to retrieve it or scream “oh my God!”
