President Biden was once again caught using cheat sheets during a joint press conference on Wednesday with South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol on growing nuclear threats from North Korea when he was asked a question by a Los Angeles Times journalist that was evidently scripted.
“How are YOU squaring YOUR domestic priorities — like reshoring semiconductors manufacturing — with alliance-based foreign policy?” the question read from Los Angeles Times reporter Courtney Subramanian on the cheat sheet.
The long-serving Washington correspondent was one of two journalists who were called upon. Another reporter demanded to know if the president was too old to run for the presidency again. It is unknown if that question was prepped for or not.
The 80-year-old commander-in-chief did not even try to hide the cards, which were prepared by aides and featured a list of Biden’s own senior officials who were taking part in the ceremony at the White House, as well as possible talking points. Several photos were taken of different cheat sheets while he was at the press conference that recognized the 70th anniversary of the alliance between the United States and South Korea.

Another cheat sheet revealed the names of other Biden administration officials and the order that remarks would be delivered at the press conference, according to the New York Post.
This is certainly not the first time that Biden has been caught with cheat sheets that have been photographed by photojournalists and bloggers. It continues to add to doubts about his mental acuity as president.
Despite the president’s physician declaring that he was in good health in February, serious questions remain concerning his cognitive abilities. The doctor refused to answer questions on that subject.
Last June, another cheat sheet of Biden’s was seen at the G20 summit in Bali with comically detailed instructions that certainly don’t allay any fears by Americans about Biden’s cognitive status.
“YOU enter the Roosevelt Room and say hello to participants,” the note painstakingly instructed, telling Biden what to do next as if he were a child, “YOU take YOUR seat.”
Back in July 2021, the president was also seen accepting an embarrassing note from an aide which a photographer got a picture of, unfortunately for Biden. It said, “Sir, there is something on your chin.”
Despite being heavily criticized for staging questions from reporters and only taking them from hand-chosen outlets, Biden rankles at being questioned over his approach to messaging. He goes off script constantly and it has become a running joke that his staff have to clean up after he makes statements when he’s allowed to speak in public.
Joe Biden’s notecard doesn’t just tell him which reporters to call on, it includes what order to call on them in and what PRE-SUBMITTED questions they’re going to ask.
There’s no way this happened under Trump..

For instance, in March, Biden called for Russian President Vladimir Putin to be removed from power after the communist country invaded Ukraine. He also vowed to take out the Nord Stream pipeline. Those are just two instances where comments had to be walked back and when they are, it’s almost never believable and it’s always embarrassing to the United States.
The new cheat sheets and the concerns they raise come as Biden announced on Tuesday that he would seek the Democratic Party’s nomination for re-election in 2024. According to a myriad of sources, neither side of the political aisle think that’s a good idea.

Republican lawmakers have continually suggested that Biden’s apparent mental decline makes him unfit to serve a second four-year term. There are more than a few Democrats who appear to share that concern.
