For anyone paying attention to the numerous tragedies raining down on average Americans as a result of this man’s policies, this picture taken at the White House will enrage you.
The entire country is forced to act as if something isn’t wrong with Joe Biden as he repeatedly embarrasses the United States both at home and abroad. His mental facilities are obviously weakened, his ability to stand upright is compromised, and his policies reflect an administration without strong leadership.
This picture, however, changes everything.
The commander in chief showed off a card at a White House meeting with wind industry leaders that gave him simple instructions on what to do or say. Among the directions on the cheat sheet, captured in the photo, was “YOU take YOUR seat” after entering the room.
The 79-year-old Biden, whose age has caused some concern in some Democratic circles looking ahead to the 2024 election, was also instructed to keep his remarks “brief,” with the notes spelling out two minutes, and asking Liz Shuler, president of the AFL-CIO, a question after reporters depart the room. Then, the card’s list says, “YOU thank participants” and “YOU depart.”
Republicans online were rightfully shocked by the level of basic instruction that’s required for Biden to operate at the White House. Prominent conservative accounts took to Twitter and spread the photo of Biden’s cheat sheet far and wide.

But the Biden administration – of course – has an explanation for why the cognitively deficient President requires such detailed notes from his staff.
White House deputy press secretary Andrew Bates quickly came to Biden’s defense. He reposted a tweet from a former speechwriter in the Obama administration who claimed this was a typical practice.
Advance & exec comms folks write event tick tocks like this for leaders all the time. It’s malpractice to send your principal (esp one who is scheduled back to back) into an engagement w/o a briefing document that outlines the exact sequence of an event & their role in it. https://t.co/Pl41XRVUIs

We get it. Presidents need details and they need them in a way that’s quick and easy to read, especially as they take back-to-back meetings day in and day out. But it’s hard to believe that leaders of the free world truly need to be told to have a seat by their staffers.
Normal or not, the note symbolizes Biden’s presidency perfectly; no one believes he’s really in charge anyway.
