New photos show President Biden using what appear to be "cheat sheets" during his first-ever news conference yesterday.
Scroll on to see for yourself...
Now, President Biden has thrown himself into his new role with gusto.
Months after his move to the White House, the newly-elected president has been busy dismantling a whole array of controversial Trump-era regulations.
Mere hours after his inauguration ceremony, Biden fulfilled one of his top campaign promises by pledging to put the U.S. back in the Paris Agreement on climate change - an international pact aimed at curbing emissions that cause global warming.
Trump famously withdrew from the agreement in 2017, citing costs to American taxpayers.
And as for the country's ongoing racial division?
Well, Biden has already got to work on putting the pieces back together.
He first signed an executive order to promote racial equity.
Biden ordered his government to conduct equity assessments of its agencies and reallocate resources to "advance equity for all, including people of color and others who have been historically underserved, marginalized and adversely affected by persistent poverty and inequality."
He then reversed Trump's infamous ban on U.S. entry from majority-Muslim countries.
Biden's proclamation reversed Trump's policy that barred entry to the U.S. for refugees and residents from 7 predominantly Muslim countries and orders plans within forty-five days for resuming visa processing.
But, despite all his hard work...
Biden has made a few mistakes along the way...
He recently laid into Vladimir Putin, escalating the already tense relationship between the countries.
Biden was asked if he believed the Russian president was a killer to which he responded "I do."
Following the comment, Russia recalled its ambassador from the US.
And demanded an apology.
The president was then seen falling 3 separate times as he climbed the steps of Air Force One...
The embarrassing blunder came amid "strong wind" as he attempted to ascend the prestigious aircraft.
Most of us believed that this was the worst it could get...

But now, photos from his first news conference yesterday have been circulating online for a somewhat controversial reason.
Though the backlash hasn't been as overwhelming as originally anticipated...
Hell, Trump couldn’t even read so it’s an improvement.— Sick of it all 🇪🇺🌈🇬🇧 (@waxlyrical29) March 25, 2021
I love a leader who is prepared, shows respect on names and understands issues. Why is this such a surprise. Most world class leaders and speakers do prep. Is this the best attack they have against him, fake news to quote a former guy.— Reverendfickle (@reverendfickle) March 26, 2021

There are dozens of reporters working in the WH. I think they had 40 at that presser.. Is it really a concern of him having a list? I use name tags when I train a group of 10 until I become familiar with them. Faux outrage strikes again.— El-Says (@ElSaysItAll) March 26, 2021
Wow, he planned ahead!!— Janet Iams Shannon (@avgusergirl) March 26, 2021
I give lectures and I have these.. you come prepared!— Dey Farmer (@deysee87) March 25, 2021
A president who can read..and was prepared.— Estella Hamilton (@Estella60337614) March 25, 2021
In the photos, Biden appears to be using "cheat sheets."

In the photo above, he can be seen holding a sheet that showed the headshots of journalists at the press conference that he planned to call on.
In a second photo, a cheat card was seen with a list of stats about infrastructure...
New photos reveal several cheat sheets used by President Joe Biden during his Thursday press conference — including one with the headshots and names of reporters he planned to call on.https://t.co/G7zlIvQSyM pic.twitter.com/ZeFoiVvz7X— johnny dollar (@johnnydollar01) March 26, 2021
Though he was still forced to correct himself after mistakenly saying the U.S ranked 85th in the world in infrastructure.
Biden is yet to address the cheat sheets in question.
What do you think? Were the cheat sheets unnecessary? Or do they simply show a prepared President?
