President Joe Biden referenced cheat sheets during his first formal press conference of his presidency, new photos reveal.

The photos show Biden holding a fact sheet labeled “infrastructure,” with bulleted talking points.

“The United States now ranks 13th globally in infrastructure quality — down from 5th place in 2002,” read one bullet point.

Another bullet point noted that “China spends 3 times more on infrastructure than U.S.”

Despite Biden’s talking points, he mistakenly ranked America 85th in the world in infrastructure, before correcting himself.

25 reporters were permitted to attend Thursday’s press conference.

Biden was seen consulting a sheet that appeared to show pictures of journalists who were in attendance. Some of the reporters were circled, some were not.

Biden answered a limited number of questions from a list from pre-selected reporters.

Many of Biden’s responses were aided by notes he referenced inside of a binder.

Many were quick to criticize the President after his press conference.

“Joe Biden had a cheat sheet with the names and faces marked of which journalists to call on, and he knew EXACTLY what questions would be asked of him. That was not a press conference—that was a play put on by bad faith actors in a pseudo-democracy,” author and political commentator Candace Owens said on Twitter.

“It was not very reassuring today that Biden relied so heavily on generic notes from staff to discuss the growing threat from China,” Steven Miller, a senior advisor to former Republican President Donald Trump, wrote.

“LOL. Joe Biden needed 64 days to prepare for a press conference and still needed a cheat sheet,” another user wrote. “How is this real?”

Former President Donald Trump described Biden’s press conference as “ridiculous” on Fox News’ ‘The Ingraham Angle.’

Trump said that reporters had asked “strange questions” and claimed to have never seen anything like it during his time in office.

“Well, they were strange questions and they were asked in a very interesting way. It was like softballs, like you are throwing softballs up, and it is just a different world,” Trump told host Laura Ingraham, adding that the reporters only asked “easy questions.”

Biden addressed issues regarding coronavirus, the U.S.’s future with China, immigration and unaccompanied minors at the border.

Uvalde, TX Mayor Calls Beto O’Rourke a ‘Sick Son of a B****’ After he Heckled Gov. Abbott’s Presser

The vile act of politicizing horrific tragedies such as the Uvalde, Texas elementary school massacre, has been in full force. Democrat Beto O’Rourke “was escorted out of Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s press conference Wednesday after he showed up and heckled the governor in the middle of an update on the elementary school massacre in Uvalde” reports The Blaze.

Beto is a former congressman from El Paso, Texas as well as a Democratic presidential nominee briefly for the 2020  elections. During his time, he campaigned hard on his support for a mandatory gun buyback scheme.

The Blaze reported on Beto’s behavior at Abbott’s press conference:

As Abbott was finishing his remarks to reporters, O’Rourke, the Democratic candidate for governor, stood up and began speaking about the need for gun control legislation.

“Excuse me,” Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said as O’Rourke ignored him and went on about how “the time has come to put a stop” to gun violence. O’Rourke did not have a microphone, and most of his comments were inaudible.

“Sit down!” shouted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as the Democrat kept speaking.

“You’re out of line and an embarrassment!” Patrick told O’Rourke, while others began raising their voices.

“You are doing nothing!” O’Rourke yelled at Abbott as police officers began to march him out of the room.

“You need to get his a** out of here, this isn’t the place to talk this over,” said Uvalde Mayor Don Mclaughlin, calling O’Rourke a “sick son of a b****.”
