WASHINGTON, DC – The worries over President Joe Biden’s cognitive status that have mounted since taking office are becoming all the more realized in the wake of a cheat sheet he was seen holding during a recent press event.
On June 23rd, Biden delivered remarks during a “Meeting on Federal State Offshore Wind Implementation Partnership” at the White House, but the stories that have surfaced in the wake of this event have little to do with his remarks and more to do with what Biden was holding.
While discussing topics like offshore wind turbines, Biden began reading from a notecard where on the other side exposed to cameras bore some very explicit instructions on arguably menial tasks.
The notecard bore the following instructions related to Biden’s appearance:
- YOU enter the Roosevelt Room and say hello to participants
- YOU take YOUR seat
- Press Enters
- YOU give brief comments (2 minutes)
- Press departs
- YOU ask Liz Shuler, President, AFL-CIO, a question Note: Liz is joining virtually
- YOU thank participants
- YOU depart
Of particular note was the fact that the words “YOU” and “YOUR” were presented in all-caps and in bold text.
Unsurprisingly, White House officials have come forward in light of the revealed cheat sheet, claiming that such notecards are “a very standard format used by politicians and government officials at public events,” per a report from Fox News.
Additionally, former White House communications official under the Obama administration Hannah Hankins asserted the same, saying that she remembers using similar notecards during the Obama presidency.
Yet, ever since Biden came into office, and even prior to in some instances, there have always been lingering questions about where he was in terms of cognitive abilities – and this notecard fiasco is certainly not helping assuage such concerns.
Nonetheless, news personalities are having a laugh at the expense of Biden’s cheat sheet, with Fox News’ Jesse Watters proposing the next set of instructions that should be handed off to Biden.
“They have to tell their boss, the President of the United States, to sit in the chair with his name on it. Well, we’ve got some suggestions for tomorrow’s card: You drill, you stop spending money, and you stay on your bike.”
Fox & Friends hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade also chimed in on the now-infamous notecard. Earhardt chucklingly mentioned that Biden, “seems pretty likable, but he’s running our country, and he has to have notes just to sit in his chair.”
Kilmeade did not sign on to Biden being “likable” as Earhardt claimed, saying, “I don’t buy him as likable, he was likable maybe 25 years ago, but this is an angry guy that’s over his skis that is too arrogant to understand that his policies are backwards, and we’re all paying the price. No empathy. Zero empathy.”
Doocy was just curious about “who is typing this stuff,” in relation to the notecard Biden was caught holding, as this matter lends more credence to the “who is really running the country'” theory that has spawned since Biden took office.
