At the top and bottom of the sheet, the note’s unknown author 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 flashed a comically detailed document instructing the president to “enter the Roosevelt Room and say hello to the participants.”

It also said “YOU take YOUR seat” and “YOU give brief remarks (2 minutes).”

In July 2021, Biden accidentally showed a note from an associate warning him that something was on his chin.
