Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden has just been busted.
The Daily Caller reported Saturday that a resurfaced clip appears to confirm the former vice president used a teleprompter during an April interview with CBS’s The Late Late Show host James Corden.
These late-night TV interviews are usually pretty easy, and considering how much Corden was gushing while he was talking to Biden, it’s a pretty safe bet that Biden was not going to get any challenging questions. But it seems the Democrat came prepared just in case.
According to the Daily Caller, a Twitter user shared last week a video clip of Biden’s interview with Corden in which the former VP shares a photo of himself with his two sons, Beau and Hunter. A reflection in the photo’s frame, however, tells the real story.
The Daily Caller said the glass revealed “a reflection of a display screen showing both Corden and what appears to be teleprompter text.”
Producers quickly panned away from the shot apparently showing Biden’s teleprompter, and Corden did his best to smooth things over, but months later, it seems the interview is coming back to haunt the Democrats’ best hope at winning this White House this November.
Take a look for yourself:
Check out the teleprompter in the reflection. Biden blatantly read from a script for most of the interview with James Corden.
I bet his handlers weren’t too happy with him going off script. He probably got reprimanded. pic.twitter.com/BPK2FGB8cz

Who’s really pulling the strings?
The situation begs dozens of questions, including: Why did Biden need a teleprompter for what clearly would be an easy interview? And why is Biden being fed the media’s questions ahead of time?
And perhaps most important: Who is really pulling the strings here?
Speaking with Fox News host Bret Baier, a representative for Biden refused to say whether the former VP uses a teleprompter, calling the notion a distraction pulled “straight from the Trump campaign talking points,” the Daily Caller reported. “They talk about it every day because they don’t have a coherent argument for why Donald Trump deserves re-election, deserves four more years,” Biden spokesman TJ Ducklo told Baier.
But don’t Americans deserve to know the truth?
