Joe Biden was caught this week with his worst “cheat sheet” yet while doing a joint press conference with South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol.
The internet went crazy after Biden was pictured with a piece of paper containing reporter Courtney Subramanian’s picture, name, and a formal question. Written at the top in a box were the words “Question #1.”
Subramanian works for the left-wing newspaper The Los Angeles Times and has denied that she pre-submitted the question shown.
Karine Jean-Pierre was faced with the controversy at Thursday’s White House briefing, and just like so many times in the past, she gave a laughable attempt at gaslighting.
The New York Post wrote:
“White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claimed Thursday it was ‘entirely normal’ for President Biden to be holding a cheat sheet with advance knowledge of a journalist’s question at a joint press conference — even as she denied that was what happened.
‘It is entirely normal for a president to be briefed on reporters who will be asking questions at a press conference and issues that we expect they might ask about,’ Jean-Pierre told members of the White House press corps at her regular briefing.
‘It is not surprising that yesterday we would anticipate questions that he did receive — right? — on the visit with the South Korean president [Wednesday],’ the press secretary went on.
‘We do not have specific questions in advance, that’s not something that we do,’ Jean-Pierre added.
But wait…haven’t KJP’s own briefings been heavily pre-scripted for months?
Jean-Pierre’s claim makes no sense. What good would it do to put a random, supposedly made-up question down on the president’s cheat sheet that he’s using during the press conference?
You couldn’t script this stuff…or, maybe Biden’s team could, that is exactly the problem we have right here. We have a president that needs a script to function.
