Joe Biden held his first press conference today, 65 days into his term. Twenty-five reporters gathered in the East Room of the White House. It wasn’t much of a press conference because nothing was off the cuff, and everything was pre-scripted down to who Biden called on. Can you imagine President Trump ever doing that? He took all the slings and arrows, but Joe can’t handle calling on random reporters.
Fox News’ Peter Doocy was not called on during the press conference. In fact, Biden completely froze out conservative reporters. Doocy has a history of asking Biden tough questions and has, on numerous occasions, clearly pissed off Biden. One example is below:
Last year, Joe Biden snarked at Fox News’ Peter Doocy when he asked about Hunter Biden’s paternity case: “Only you would ask that”…” You’re a good man…you’re a good man”…”Classy.”
Flash forward, and Peter Doocy spoke about today’s press conference immediately after it was over:
Fox's @PDoocy shares his binder of questions and research that he was looking to have used when questioning President Biden today, but unsurprisingly, Biden's handlers kept Doocy off the list.
He says he would have asked about green jobs and the origins of COVID in China. pic.twitter.com/MJN2sohvWS

How did the pre-scripted press conference go? Just as everyone thought. It was a sh*t show where Biden’s brain shut down, and he stumbled on his words.
Now, there are new photos showing cheat sheets used by Biden during the press conference. Yes, Biden’s cognitive impairment is that bad.
The photos via the New York Post show Biden used very specific pre-printed notes to assist with facts about US infrastructure.
One bullet point on the cheat sheet read: “The United States now ranks 13th globally in infrastructure quality down from 5th place in 2002.”

Biden only took questions from a list of journalists whose names and outlets he read from a cue card. He also had headshots next to the names of reporters he planned to call on.
