Joe Biden on Saturday, was asked by a reporter about the upcoming inauguration and whether there would “be any scenario you would not be taking the oath outside on Wednesday”?

A seemingly confused 78 year old Biden looked up after picking up what appeared to be a notebook and did not answer the reporter’s question, but instead, remained silent and walked off from his news conference regarding COVID-19 plans.

Anna Khait tweeted on Saturday, “Apparently Biden was just asked by the media if there was a chance he wouldn’t get inaugurated and he didn’t answer … is this true!? Is there a clip! If so.. HA, they know they’re caught. The seed of doubt is strong!”

She later found the clip of the reporter’s question to Biden, where he did not answer her question regarding the possibility of not “taking the oath outside on Wednesday”.

Some users on Twitter responded to Joe Biden’s seemingly confused actions when another clip circulated online. The video appears to zoom in on Biden and mutes the reporter’s question.

Twitter added a label to the viral video clip informing the public: “manipulated media”.
