On Thursday, President Joe Biden spent some time outside the White House to interact with the public, however, he had a particularly honest moment when taking questions from the American people.
In the now-viral moment, Biden seemed to be honest about how he has been at the whims of his staff throughout his entire presidency thus far.
“The one thing I thought when I got to be president — I’d get to give orders,” the 80-year-old president said.
“But I take more orders than I ever did,” he added.
This is becoming increasingly apparent for the aging president as Americans are reluctant to see Biden running for a second term. A recent poll found that 70 percent of voters do not want Biden to run for a second term despite his reelection announcement on Tuesday.
On Wednesday, Biden was spotted carrying a postcard cheat sheet for taking questions and answers from reporters.
As reported by The New York Post, the postcard showed who President Biden would call upon for questions that were preapproved by the White House staff.
“How are YOU squaring YOUR domestic priorities — like reshoring semiconductors manufacturing — with alliance-based foreign policy?” read a question from Los Angeles Times reporter Courtney Subramanian.
Another portion of the cheat sheet showed various administration officials and the order in which they would speak so that Biden didn’t speak out of turn.
Once again Biden is showing his age and proving what many Americans already thought about the octogenarian: someone else is running the show.
