President Joe Biden appeared "confused" in an interview about his administration's response to the coronavirus pandemic, according to a CNN reporter.
Jeffrey Zeleny, chief national affairs correspondent for CNN, said Biden looked confused "repeatedly" while speaking with ABC News's David Muir and said "nothing's been good enough" on the lack of testing kits.
"President Biden seems confused and was confusing the half a billion tests that they’ve ordered with a half a billion pills. And, of course, pills were in the news today with the Pfizer approval of the antiviral, so he corrected himself, but that was one thing that stuck out to me," Zeleny said.

"But then simply this administration and the president leading the charge here, really not accepting any responsibility at all for this lack of testing," Zeleny said. "We’ve seen these images across the country. Long lines, just the inability to get tests. And yes, omicron came on very quickly here, but it has been almost a month since Thanksgiving where they knew this was coming."

Biden, who turned 79 on Nov. 20, stumbled through his interview with Muir when talking about ordering 500 million at-home testing kits, which he said he wished he had done months ago. He also discussed the antiviral drug from Pfizer meant to treat COVID-19 that was authorized by the Food and Drug Administration this week.
