CNN reporters Jeff Zeleny called Joe Biden “Joebama” before correcting himself.
“President-elect Joebam…. uh, Joe Biden, rather…did finish speaking here just a short time ago,” Zeleny said, correcting his mistake.

In a recent interview with “The Intercept” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized Biden bringing back many Obama appointees into his cabinet.
“The Biden administration is bringing back a lot of Obama appointees, which depending on where you are in the party, may sound nice, I guess,” AOC said “But I think what a lot of people fail to remember is that we now have a Biden administration that’s bringing back a lot of Obama appointees, but when Obama was making appointments, he was bringing back a lot of Clinton appointees.”
She said this lack of rotation and recycling of the same cast of characters is “a huge reason why we got Donald Trump in the first place. In addition to just the racism that was waiting to be reanimated in this country, [there] was just an extreme disdain for this moneyed political establishment that rules Washington.”
