President Joe Biden was caught using a cheat sheet during a press conference on Tuesday, raising further concerns about his mental fitness for office.
The cheat sheet, which was photographed by a reporter, included the following bullet points:
- YOU take YOUR seat
- YOU give brief comments
- YOU depart
The bullet points are clearly instructions for Biden on how to conduct a press conference. The fact that Biden needed a cheat sheet to remember these basic instructions is further evidence that he is not mentally sharp enough to be president.
The notecard held by Biden, 80, stated that his first question was to come from Los Angeles Times reporter Courtney Subramanian.
“How are YOU squaring YOUR domestic priorities — like reshoring semiconductors manufacturing — with alliance-based foreign policy?” the question on the card stated.
When Biden called on her, Subramanian stated: “Your top economic priority has been to build U.S. domestic manufacturing in competition with China, but your rules against expanding chip manufacturing in China is hurting South Korean companies that rely heavily on Beijing.”
“Are you damaging a key ally in the competition with China to help your domestic politics ahead of the election?” Subramanian asked.
Biden’s defenders have downplayed the significance of the cheat sheet, saying that it is simply a sign that he is a busy man who is juggling a lot of information. However, his critics say that the cheat sheet is further evidence that Biden is not up to the job of president.
“This is just another example of Biden’s declining mental acuity,” said Republican National Committee spokesperson Matt Schlapp. “He is clearly not fit to be president.”
Biden’s use of a cheat sheet is also likely to be used by Republicans in the upcoming midterm elections. Republicans are already running ads that highlight Biden’s gaffes and missteps, and they are likely to use the cheat sheet as further evidence that Biden is not up to the job.
