Biden’s cheat sheets are a non-issue

I think we should be way more concerned about how he drones on and on and in some spots totally looses his train of thought in mid-sentence. It seems to me that he is obviously suffering from mild dementia. I still think Biden isn’t going to make it to the end of the year.

In the early stages of the 62-minute presser, in which Biden fielded 10 questions, the president appeared to repeatedly lose his train of thought, forgetting questions and asking reporters if they wanted him to give detailed answers.

Just about everyone that steps up to a podium has notes or cheat sheets. I don’t expect a President to know or remember everything. The list he had of the reporters was a bit on the over the top side. To see that he needed pictures as well as names and networks is not a good thing or that he had a set number of reporters that he would call on. While it was far from a free form press conference he survived his hour or so in front of the cameras again. That seems to be the low bar we set for him.
