Photos from President Biden's first press conference on Thursday show him using several cheat sheets to prompt his answers, including one that included the names and headshots of reporters he planned to call on.

He also used a cheat sheets with bulleted information about U.S. infrastructure , with one reading that the U.S. "now ranks 13th globally in infrastructure quality."

Despite the cards and an additional three-ring binder with notes, Biden still saw slips, saying that the U.S. ranked 85th in the world, before correcting himself. Biden also lost his train of thought several times, forgot questions, and asked reporters if they wanted detailed answers.

Biden abruptly ended the conference, saying, "but folks, I'm going."
