(Headline USA) President Joe Biden was pictured holding a notecard on Thursday with detailed written instructions telling him when to enter a press conference room and when to sit down.
Among the directions on the cheat sheet, captured by a photographer in the room, were “YOU take YOUR seat,” and “YOU enter the Roosevelt room and welcome participants.”
Joe Biden isn’t senile, guys. His handlers just have to give him step by step directions for every single thing that he does.

The notecard also told the 79-year-old Biden, whose age has caused some concern even among Democrats, to keep his remarks “brief,” and to ask Liz Shuler, a president of the AFL-CIO a question after reporters depart the room.
“YOU thank participants,” the notecard read, and “YOU depart.”
White House staffer Andrew Bates defended the notecard in a missive retweet, which said, “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.”
Conservatives blasted the White House for seemingly hiding Biden’s true mental state.
“YOU take YOUR seat.”
I honestly would expect more mental capacity from a 3-year-old. https://t.co/mwJydFLBSI
