look up any word, like blumpkin:
 
1.
The new, more genuine, folksier alternative to a teleprompter. Consists of writing notes on the palm of your hand, then consulting them while delivering a speech on national television.
"The telepalmer? I think she did it on purpose. I think she did it on purpose, yeah. Because it’s the exact opposite of reading off the teleprompter with a script written for you with every word in a sentence. Here she’s just taking crib notes on her hand. It makes her look like she can just talk off the cuff and she just jotted down a few couple notes before she went out to give a big long speech."
