Biden Called Out Over Use Of Cheat Sheet While Talking To Media

This past Monday, Old Uncle Joe was called out for the use of a cheat sheet notecard that he carried with him into a press conference that explained to him how to answer what his handlers deemed to be “tough Putin” questions.

In part, the notecard stated:

  1. If you weren’t advocating for regime change, what did you mean? Can you clarify?
  2. I was expressing the moral outrage I felt towards the actions of this man.
  3. I was not articulating a change in policy.

This cheat sheet on how to handle any questions cropped up seemingly in response to Biden stating over this past weekend about Putin, “For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power.”

In a seemingly panic-fueled damage control mode, the White House was made to rapidly walk back these statements from Biden, claiming in a statement:

The President’s point was that Putin cannot be allowed to exercise power over his neighbors or the region. He was not discussing Putin’s power in Russia, or regime change.

As part of yet another section of the notecard, which was partially hidden, an answer was given to the following question: “Is this now threatening to splinter unity with your NATO allies?”

“No,” started the answer section of the card. “NATO has never been more united.”

Biden received widespread ridicule over social media and various news outlets because of his little cheat card, notable responses included:

  • Mike Cernovich, political commentator: “Utterly embarrassing.”
  • Clay Travis, radio host: “The Biden presidency just keeps getting more embarrassing. He isn’t well and even with the questions in advance they still have to write out answers out for him.”
  • Tammy Bruce, political commentator: “How much longer can this continue?”
  • Stephen L. Miller, political commentator: “If this was the last guy this is all Washington post and CNN would talk about for the week and Sunday.”
  • Kayleigh McEnany, former White House press secretary: “I can’t believe this is the President’s pocket card! I’m surprised it didn’t start with: ‘Hi, my name is President Biden…’”
  • Dan McLaughlin, National Review: “I did not believe this was real until I watched the video. I get that presidents need to be reminded what their policy is on some obscure corners of governance. But this is a simple question about the centerpiece of current U.S. foreign policy.”
  • Benjamin Weingarten, Real Clear Investigations: “Who is putting the words onto the cue cards and into the teleprompter?”
  • Ben Williamson, political advisor: “Having a set of talking points specifically labeled for ‘tough’ questions is too perfect.”
  • Hans Mahncke, political commentator: “Do White House stenographers submit their questions beforehand or are they just told what to ask?”
  • Stephen J. Duffield, attorney: “I mean, at least Trump personally handwrote (in all caps!) his notes, so it passed through his head at least once. Low bar, low bar…”
