“Outnumbered” co-host Kayleigh McEnany has called out Democrat President Joe Biden after he got caught with a cheat sheet during an appearance with the press.
McEnany, President Donald Trump’s former White House press secretary, said she was stunned to learn how many instructions Biden’s handlers had given him.
“It is really something,” she said on her hit Fox News show.
“The question involves semiconductors.
“It also involved alliances and how it would be affected.
“I can tell you, I never had that level of detail to provide President Trump from a legacy print media outlet like this one.
“Occasionally you’d have foreign reporters have a very nuanced question they want to ask him that’s trying to get a leg up in the briefing.
“But the idea that a reporter from the L.A. Times would give this, it really is something.
“I talked to several members of my staff who were in the lower press.
“I was in upper press, and lower presses where you had interactions on a daily basis with reporters. It’s really the front lines.
“And they said, no, nobody was coming to us with topics, with exact questions.
“Occasionally we would get the topic, but certainly not the question.
“And they said to me, we put in the work.
“So when we came to you, and we said, we think this person’s going to ask this or that person’s going to ask this, it’s because we looked at their Twitter feed, we looked at their articles, we did the research, and we could surmise what we thought the reporter would ask.
“But it was putting in the work, not getting a head start, as it seems to be in this case.”
Joe Biden was caught red-handed with a cheat sheet that contained the names and questions of reporters he was scheduled to answer.

The L.A. Times denied any wrongdoing, however.
“Our reporter did not submit any questions in advance of the Q&A with President Biden,” the outlet said in a statement.
“Courtney Subramanian covers the White House for the Los Angeles Times.
“As such, she is in regular contact with the White House press office seeking information for her reporting.
“You would have to ask the White House who prepared the document for the president and why they included that question.”
Fox News’s Marie Harf, who worked in the Obama administration, said:
“Principals often have a heads-up on what kinds of issues reporters want to ask about and talk about.
“And at the end of the day, President Biden can answer it however he wants to.
“I am 100% confident this White House is not telling reporters what to ask.
“That is a ludicrous thing to say he is being prepared by his staff for the questions they know will get asked. That happens every day.”
Fox News’s Emily Compagno said:
“Because unless there’s an Ouija board involved, I don’t understand how you can say maybe he knew the topics and then get to word-for-word the question.
“Somewhere along the line, he’s having his handheld.”
