Biden Caught Reading from 'Tough Putin Q&A' Notecards: 'He Still Screwed Up'
Photos show list of 'talking points' with answers to 'tough' questions
During a Monday press conference, Democrat Joe Biden was photographed holding notecards that gave him the answers to "tough Putin Q&A" questions.
Photos show Biden clutching the cards that list "tough" questions he would be asked about his recent calls for Russia's Vladimir Putin to be reoved from power.
Underneath each of the predicted questions are bullet points with answers to those "tough" questions.
The cards appear to have been written by his handlers and accurately match up with the questions from the reporters he "randomly" called on.
As Biden was asked the questions, he then read the "talking points" from the pre-prepared cards.
However, as Republican National Committee Deputy Director Jake Schneider pointed out, Biden "still scewed up."
"Biden had to have 'I was not articulating a change in policy' written verbatim on a notecard so he wouldn’t screw it up… and he still screwed it up," Schneider said on Twitter with a photo of Biden's notecards.

"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.
"The fact of the matter is I was expressing the moral outrage I felt toward the way Putin is dealing, and the actions of this man — just — just the brutality of it,” he replied.
"I was expressing the moral outrage I felt towards this man,” he said afterward.
"I wasn’t articulating a policy change.”
Biden has previously used notecards during his remarks with reporters with bullet points on key issues, but his notes on Monday demonstrated a new level of detail.
However, Biden soon went off-script, berating Fox News reporter Peter Doocy for being “silly” and, at one point, briefly losing his temper with a woman reporter who asked him if his comment unnecessarily escalated the conflict with Putin.
