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.

Pro-Defund the Police Gubernatorial Candidate has NYPD Detail, Lives on Military Base for ‘Affordability’

Jumaane Williams is ‘hypocritical’ for living on a secure military base, critics say

Hypocrisy is no stranger to Democrats, but New York gubernatorial candidate Jumaane Williams is sparking outrage over his. Williams, an outspoken advocate of defunding the police, is relying on…the police…to protect him as he runs for governor.

Williams not only travels with a detail of New York City’s NYPD officers, but he also lives on a military base. The military base also provides 24/7 security. Williams, a self-proclaimed racial justice advocate, was elected as the New York City public advocate in 2019 after serving on the NYC Council.

Williams lives on the Fort Hamilton U.S. Army Garrison in Brooklyn, where anyone requesting entry must submit a background check and go through security checkpoints. NYPD security detail travels with him each day, provided to him because of his position for the city.

Williams proudly describes himself as a Democratic Socialist, and his campaign website touts a vow to “bring transformational change to Albany.” When New York City agreed to cut the NYPD budget by $1 billion as a result of the defund the police movement, Williams said the cut was an insufficient amount.

To add insult to injury, Williams lives on the military base simply for its “affordability.” A representative for Williams told the New York Post “when he needed a new home for his family in 2019, they chose a publicly available unit in Fort Hamilton not because of its position on a base but because it offered the best unit for his family’s price point and criteria.”

An area official with knowledge of the base’s housing process told the Post “these aren’t apartments listed on Zillow. It’s essentially a gated community with stunning waterfront views protected by tanks and soldiers with M16s.”

Not only are our tax dollars, but also our police and military forces helping to protect and house a man who is actively working to undo it all with his liberal policies.
