During Joe Biden’s recent interview with David Muir of ABC News, he kept mixing up COVID tests with COVID pills, leading CNN reporter Jeff Zeleny to say Biden seemed confused.
Biden frequently seems confused, but for someone on CNN to say this is kind of a big deal.
Are liberals in media starting to realize Democrats will be doomed if Biden is their nominee in 2024?
CNN’s Jeff Zeleny: Biden Appeared ‘Confused’ During Interview
CNN reporter Jeff Zeleny says President Joe Biden appeared “confused” during parts of a televised interview.
Zeleny made his comments on Wednesday after Biden, 79, appeared to mix up COVID-19 home testing kits with antiviral pills during an interview with ABC News.
Biden told ABC News anchor David Muir: “I’ve ordered half a billion of the pills — 500 million pills.”
He paused for a second and then corrected himself, saying: “Excuse me … 500 million test kits.”
Moments later he made the same mistake again.
“Repeatedly throughout this interview with David Muir, President Biden seems confused and was confusing the half a billion tests that they’ve ordered with a half a billion pills,” Zeleny told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer during a panel discussion.
“Of course, pills were in the news today with the Pfizer approval of the anti-viral, so he corrected himself, but that was one thing that stuck out to me.”
Here’s the video:

It would have been unimaginable for Zeleny to say this on the air a little over a year ago, but it seems reality is setting in.
Biden is confused, which is normal for a man of his advanced age.
