President Joe Biden has found himself yet again in embarrassment for carrying a cheat sheet containing instructions at a meeting on Federal State Offshore Wind Implementation Partnership where he had a binder with talking points on June 23. The meeting was attended by which included Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, Interior Secretary Deb Haaland and, Governors Phil Murphy and John Carney from Democratic Party. The note card had a detailed list of instructions prepared by his staff for meeting that said, “YOU take YOUR seat.” The note also said that after reporters arrive, “YOU give brief comments (2 minutes).” When reporters depart, “YOU ask Liz Shuler, President, AFL-CIO, a question” and then “YOU thank participants” and “YOU depart.”

One of the photographers present there captured the cheat sheet that the president held up upside down at the meeting. The prepared instructions for Biden, titled ‘Offshore Wind Drop-By Sequence of Events,’ guided him to “enter the Roosevelt Room and greet the participants.” This isn't the first time Biden's notes have gone viral. In March, he was seen holding a card reading, "Tough Putin Q&A Talking Points" during a news briefing about the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

Hannah Hankins, a former White House communications official told Fox News that former presidents like Barack Obama also used a similar format of notes during his presidency. Twitter, however, saw it as yet another embarrassing goof up on the part of the president. He has earlier been mocked for using these cheat sheets and is also accused of being allegedly 'controlled by his handlers' at the White House. One of the users mocked the president by saying, “It looks like the @POTUS handlers have to now tell @JoeBiden to take his own seat and sit down with emphasis on YOUR seat. They are obviously worried that not only can he remember to sit down but he will also sit in someone else’s seat. Notes from handler: “YOU take YOUR seat”. Another wrote, “Chris Hansen: “Why don’t you take a seat?” Joe Biden: “YOU take YOUR seat!”

Talking about how the staff dictates Biden, a netizen commented, "White House Staff tells Joe Biden what to do. President holds up Instructive Note Card: “YOU enter the Roosevelt Room and say hello to the participants” ‘YOU Take YOUR Seat’ “YOU thank participants” “YOU depart”

Pointing out the embarrassment, a user said, “OMG- they are setting him up for failure. They should be using non verbal like laser pointers." Another individual sympathized with the president saying: "It can be confusing when you enter a room you’ve visited about 1,000 times, especially when you’re 80!"

Chain of cheat sheet moments

Biden has been facing criticism for not conducting a press conference after taking oath as the 46th President of the United States on January 20, 2021. And this is not the first time that he has been caught on camera for carrying a cheat sheet. Earlier in March of this year, during a press conference related to his comments on Russian President Vladimir Putin, he carried a note that included questions such as "If you weren't advocating for regime change, what did you mean? Can you clarify?" He was spotted using notes to assist with facts to answer questions that were thrown at him. During an event last July, the president was handed a note reading, "Sir, there is something on your chin."
