Joe Biden accidentally reveals another cheat sheet during White House meeting

‘YOU take YOUR seat’

Joe Biden has accidentally shown what appears to be another so-called ‘cheat sheet’ telling him what to do in an important meeting.

The president was sitting down with wind-industry executives in the Roosevelt Room at the White House to launch the Federal-State Offshore Wind Implementation Partnership when he flashed the card, presumably by accident.

Titled “Offshore Wind Drop-By Sequence of Events”, the document tells the 79-year-old to “enter the Roosevelt Room and say hello to participants.”

The paper then tells him: “YOU take YOUR seat.”

It includes a note “Press arrives” followed by “YOU give brief comments (2 minutes),” and appears to then tell him what to do after this.

The note continues: “Press departs. YOU ask Liz Shuler, President, AFL-CIO, a question.”

It also reminds the president that “Liz is joining virtually,” before finishing with “YOU thank participants” and “YOU depart.”

Right-wing and conservative commentators have labelled the pictures “beyond embarrassing” and “not normal.”

It’s not the first time Biden has been caught with a ‘cheat sheet.’ Earlier this year, his cheat sheet notes for discussing Vladimir Putin were caught on camera after the White House had to issue a clarification following earlier comments he had made about the Russian regime.

This follows a poll in February which more than half of Americans asked said they don’t believe Biden has the “mental sharpness it takes to serve effectively as president”.
