President Joe Biden was blasted after images of his note cards, or “cheat sheets” to answer questions from reporters were revealed on social media.
The notes came from a photograph of his time with reporters called “Tough Putin Q & A Talking Points.”

“’If you weren’t advocating for regime change, what did you mean? Can you clarify?” it asked.
“I was expressing the moral outrage I felt towards the actions of this man,” one of the answers read.
Biden 3/28/22: “It’s ridiculous. Nobody believes I was talking about taking down Putin. Nobody believes that.”

The reveal of Biden’s notecard was not planned. Instead, he accidentally held it in the wrong direction where cameras could capture an image of it.

In addition to outrage among some, others used the incident to make jokes about the matter.
“The White House has announced that President Biden will no longer be giving speeches or press conferences. Instead, they will have a giant note card with talking points standing at the podium,” one user wrote.

The notecard may not seem like a big deal to some, but it shows his dialogue with reporters is scripted and he still fumbles the ball, leaving the nation in increasing trouble on the world stage.
