The latest story out of the Mandela Funeral in South Africa is the translator for the deaf was simply moving his hands around and the motions had no meaning. The exact phrase used was the motions were “Jibberish”.
I must come to the defense of the Translator!
He translated President Obama’s speech, as well as those of the other Socialists, exactly as spoken.
I will also confirm that the ASL translator is one of former President Clinton’s Speech writers and has vast experience translating such speeches.
If anything, this interpreter is entitled to a raise for doing as fine a job as he did.
