FREUDIAN SLIP? : CNN Reporter Addresses US President-elect As JoeBama

In what many perceive a Freudian slip than an intentional gaffe, a veteran CNN reporter addressed the United States President-elect as “Joebama” during a live shot Tuesday, combining Biden’s name with that of the man he served under as vice president and from whose administration much of his staff and cabinet picks are derived.

Jeff Zeleny, while trying to catch-correct his own mistake uttered “President-elect Joebama — uh, Joe Biden, rather — did finish speaking here just a short time ago,” said the veteran journalist.

Zeleny had the slip of the tongue while reporting to “Situation Room” host Wolf Blitzer on Biden’s stumping in Georgia on behalf of Democratic Senate candidates Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff.

As Biden puts together his cabinet and White House staff, observers have noticed that their ranks include many Obama-era returnees, Thereby justifying Zeleny’s unintentional play-on-words

Prior to his winning the White House run, Biden served as vice president under President Barack Obama from 2009 to 2017.

Biden’s nominees to head the state department, treasury, Department of Homeland Security and Department of Veterans Affairs,respectively all served under Obama in some capacity.
