Photos reveal that President Joe Biden brought detailed notecards from his staff on Monday for a series of questions at the White House about his off-the-cuff statement on Russian President Vladimir Putin.
During the question and answer session at the White House, Biden read from a notecard prepared by his staff on whom to call on for a question.
Another notecard captured on camera showed Biden’s “Tough Putin Q&A” notes, with detailed questions that Biden would receive from reporters and detailed bullet points of how he should answer them.
“I was expressing the moral outrage I felt toward the actions of this man,” one prepared answer read.
“I was not articulating a change in policy,” another prepared answer read.
At the beginning of his question and answer session, Biden dutifully responded using his prepared answers.
