President Biden has been spotted again with a detailed “Cheat sheet” – this time at the G20 summit in Bali – and instructed him where to sit, when to make comments and when to pose for photos.

The 79-year-old commander-in-chief was attending an event on the partnership for global infrastructure and investment on Tuesday when photographers snapped a picture of him flipping through pages of notes.

The typed memo gave Biden step-by-step instructions on what to do during the meeting and referred to the president as “YOU” in bold red letters.

“YOU, [Indonesian] President Widodo and [Japanese] Prime Minister Kishida will take a photo right before the event begins,” reads a bullet point.

Additional instructions read: “YOU will sit in the middle” and “YOU will make opening remarks (5 minutes).”

The notes also reminded Biden, “YOU will close the event along with THEIR co-hosts.”

At the top and bottom of the sheet, the unknown author of the note printed a bold reminder for Biden to turn the page for his opening statement.

This isn’t the first time Biden has been caught using stage directions during public appearances.

During a June meeting with wind industry executives, Biden accidentally showed a comically detailed paper directing the president to “enter the Roosevelt Room and greet attendees.”

It also said: “YOU take a seat” and “YOU give short remarks (2 minutes).”

In July 2021, Biden accidentally showed a note from an employee alerting him to this something on his chin.

In June, Biden accidentally flashed "cheat sheet" that instructed the President "say hello" to the participants of a meeting.

Biden’s frequent and well-documented reliance on cue cards has fueled speculation among his critics that the seventy-year-old experienced cognitive decline.

Biden, who turns 80 on Sunday, said in a recent interview that it is “completely legitimate”. for voters to ask if someone his age could serve a possible second term in the White House – but he urged people to judge for themselves whether they are physically and mentally fit for office.

“I think the best way to make a judgment is to watch me,” he said. “Am I slower? Am I walking at the same pace?”
