Leo Laporte Disgusted with Padre’s Coverage of Live Events

There is no man or woman in the universe who likes FMCP aka Robert “PadreSJ” Ballecer. Notorious liar, possible criminal and just all around garbage.

Father Robert Ballecer
Fr. Robert Ballecer

TWiT is bad at doing live events, conference coverage and Padre is no exception to this. FMCP was sent by CeHo to some random event to do a wonderful job of covering it, as part of her continuous desperate attempts to shill sponsors for more money. Guess what? He failed, using his 1920’s radio announcer voice, he stood in the middle of show floor mumbling nonsense for 10 minutes on twit’s live stream. We will spare you with showing entire footage, instead we will share Leo’s thoughts on this matter.

As you can imagine, Leo wasn’t thrilled with the dressed clown job. He showed his continued distaste for Padre and complained to CeHo that he needs more control over planning and doing live coverage. Knowing TWiT’s past history, we can only hope that Padre soon will be an off-site producer.

  1. Great clip but the article reads like it was autogenerated by a bot that is programmed to repurpose old TD gags and insert irrelevant TD links.

    Leo: I need to, Lisa I need to take charge of this, this is not good
    Lisa: What’s wrong sweetie?
    Leo: Oh these live things, I need to have a little more input into what we’re doing on these
    Lisa: Why what went wrong?
    Leo: They don’t have any content so [inaudible] there for two minutes
    Lisa: There’s nothing there? I mean, which one was this?
    JammerB: [inaudible] [augmented world] says name of event
    Leo: I mean maybe he just got there and there’s nothing to do in which case he did kind of a two minute thing which is fine.
    Lisa: Well I, it starts at 10 so its possible its not set up yet. People are late getting there, it’s just the VR one, I think it’s worth taking a look at [inaudible]
    Leo: There’s no point in going to it though if he is just going to stand there.

    This video is a fascinating look into how TWiTt works. Lisa sends Padre to a conference (on the church’s dime) to stand there like a moron and make bullshit content that she can hopefully slap ads on and Leo is aware it is total crap.

  2. When Leo basically tells her that she does not know what she is doing, she responds with “What’s wrong sweetie?” This turns the relationship back from CEO-work to boyfriend-girlfriend.
    Don’t put your girlfriend in charge of content!

    I noted that her voice gets really high when she says “I think.” A sign that she is insecure about her opinions in front of Leo.
    ^^^I think ^^^

    1. It’s the pattern of the dress. It’s well known that vertical stripes make you thinner, that’s why middle aged fat men wear those bowling shirts with three stripes running down the front. Lisa is wearing horizontal stripes on her dress which make her ass look bigger. Bam, science.

      She’s gross as fuck, get your eyes checked, breh.

      Daaaaamn! Did anyone get a look at that ass at the end?! No wonder Leo threw away his integrity. I would, too! He’s drunk off that ass!

      Not sure if you missed “ManTranny” aka CeHo ‘s balls hanging below his/her skirt line last week?

      Sorry bud but there’s nothing worth “tapping” on that freak of nature!!!

      Every time I hear LeoLafuck talk about his “armcandy” aka “ManTranny” aka CeHo it sends chills down my back

      U need to go back to previous posts on TD locate those ugly pictures of “ManTranny” and that should kill your boner!!!!

      They should get Tonya to do live events, she’s so good at them!

      Both Tanya and Padre should do events at the same time. Can you image these OBESE Creators come lunch time? Fatties the both of them. The perfect “talent” for TWiT.

        How about the high tech pizza delivery van Dominos is promoting. Tech+padre+Tonya+lunch =content that will sell shoes anywhere.

  3. Oh the irony… Soup and Yoko discussing content free video! HELLO?! That’s the twit netcasting model!

    Oh, unless of course he means, there were no ads during the monologue , in which case they’re TODDALY correct.

    Never mind. Today’s lessons:
    1) Just because you can open an Excel file, it doesn’t make you CEO material, and
    2) Making business decisions with your pecker rarely leads to a good outcome.

  4. It’s strange, people are feeling the same way about Leo Laporte and the content he produces, every show seems to be the same. He just cranks out his trolling of various manufacturers or products where he feels the company has slighted him.

    Then he yacks on about the latest novelty game that he is getting his kicks out of.

    Interspersed there is what has become blatant punting of Chromebooks, Google products and services. Is he being paid to push these products and services because every show seems to have become This Week in Google, except for This Week in Google where Leo Laporte and that boiled ham of a “Yellow Journalism” Professor Jeff Jarvis spend half their time trolling people or complaining about how people troll them in blatant hypocrisy.

    I wonder how long someone phones in and complains that they tried PokemonGo after he pushed it and got assaulted and robbed.

      Now come on – Jeff Jarvis (PI) might be fearful of a few bridges and one unkind type may have said “[JJ is] someone with an online influence massively greater than the thoughtfulness of his positions. It’s all style and rhetorical flourishes which don’t stand up to scrutiny” but did you manage to perfectly reflect and deconstruct the zeitgeist like this: https://twitter.com/jeffjarvis/status/752240679963729920
      He he, that really bring a chuckle. Normal folks can’t do that, only a PI can do that.

      1. Pokemon No > Pokemon Stop

        Also fuck those losers. Jason Hiner kept calling it Pokeman to show us how cool and above it all he is. Then Token, I mean Owen, said about a dozen times that it’s only for 30 year old guys trying to relive their youth. No jackass, you’re wrong, go back to breathing while black because woe is you.

        The only bridge that Jeff Jarvis fears is a dental one.

      My thoughts exactly!!!!

      Yup ” ManTranny” aka CeHo aka Yoko and LaPork are milking the shit out of this latest podcast concept !!
      Find last minute Click bait stories
      add your BS and stupidity comments combined by trolling every company or person who calls out Google’s soul sucking devices or apps .. have “Yoko”
      aka “ManTranny ” bombard the podcast with fucking BS sponsors who Leo claims he uses religiously while he’s hyping the sponsor with made up stories for up to 10 min plus.

      I’m fucking amazed he’s able to sell this concept to these star struck idiots he call the Twit Army.
      Oh wait the Twit Army is pretty much
      dead.

      Fuck You LeFuck
      the more you BS
      the more we call U out
      u fat fuck

      Yup your still a FAT fuck

  5. Why would Leo want to take charge of anything TWiT produces, he has stated many many times that his goal was and is is to come in… Do a shit show!!! And then go home to Wife Lisa’s sex swing.

  6. “Leo is aware it is total crap.” and he does know how to fix it. He does not give a shit anymore. He coasting on his savings account.
    Wine, house, a little money, MM card, and a mason jar of rabbit food. What else does a guy need?

    1. Mason jar of rabbit food… classic!

      Apparently his mansion used to be a grow op. I wonder if they got it super cheap at an auction because Lisa is boss like that.

      Also, who the fuck would grow indoors in Peatluma when Humboldt County is “down the road a piece” – to quote our favourite Soupmeister.

      1. If I remember right they paid a pretty penny for it and didn’t find out it was a grow house until later when they smelled it. They had to have half the walls ripped out to get rid of the smell and redo the fucked up wiring.

  7. Just so everyone knows.

    Lisa opened a company to sell ads. This is the area I used to work in at twit. Lisa imagined her company would be a success so she hired 3 people. Needless to say, she is unable to sign any creators that advertisers want to work with. She signed hobbyists with 1-2 thousand listeners. (she did have a few sponsors who she could have sold to if she had content) Therefore, the new company is a flop leaving her two choices.

    1) Be honest that it flopped and fire the new hires
    2) Be a lying bitch and just fire twit employees and give their jobs to the new people so she doesn’t have to say her company was a flop.

    GUESS WHAT SHE PICKED AND MORE LAYOFFS ARE COMING!!!!

    1. No wonder her advertising enterprise is a failure. When you name a company you don’t name it in a such a way that it sounds like a person is saying “Art Is Anal” that’s the most memorable thing about it.

      The only reason that she won’t admit is because once she kills off Leo there won’t be a TWiT, it’s not a sellable business, it relies on the cult members that follow him to keep on watching and there is not the content to keep them.

      Sure the shows get viewers when he is having one of his numerous vacations and someone covers him but that is one or maybe two episodes when Leo quits all that changes, people will drift away because most sit and watch to see if he will fuck up and show more of his home porn or some other dumb ass bullshit.

      She needs something to be in charge of when TWiT is just a TechTV style memory that people reminisce about and say “Do you remember the schmuck that divorced his wife and married the book keeper and then allowed her to wreck his business, what was that guy’s name? Ah yes, Leo Laporte”.

      Wow that’s fucking sad!!!!!!
      As much as I hate LaPork and “ManTranny” aka CeHo
      I feel bad for 1 or 2 of his staff members …
      We all know who they are
      the rest of the staff needs to get laid off for riding the TWit BS roller coaster this long without looking for a better job!!!

      Fuck You Leo
      U too ” ManTranny ”

  8. Anyone believe that is the real Glenn Rubinstein a few comments above? It came to me as very authentic like that is how I see Lisa even if she is on camera so infrequently. Maybe that is the reason we don’t really see an Inside Twit anymore because she found out she kinda comes off like a douchbag.

  9. It took me a while but it finally occurred to me that the Padre is channeling the late great Huell Howser of “California’s Gold” fame. This revelation has made it even more difficult for me to watch him desecrate truly wonderful memories of a simpler time.
