 A cheat sheet that President Joe Biden used to call on reporters during a joint press conference with South Korean President Yoon Suk Yeol on Wednesday showed that he knew in advance the topics that the reporter was going to ask him about.

The notecard held by Biden, 80, stated that his first question was to come from Los Angeles Times reporter Courtney Subramanian.

    • I was not articulating a change in policy.

The notecard on how to deal with questions came in response to Biden stating about Putin, “For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power.”

The White House was forced to quickly walk back Biden’s remarks, saying in a statement:
