MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell apparently cannot wait for Joe Biden to end President Trump’s “anti-Iran,” and “pro-Israel” foreign policy agenda.
The anchor repeatedly whined on the air Wednesday about the Trump administration’s “anti-Palestinian posture” and other Middle East policy as she seemed to struggle with understanding why Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is still even doing his job.
Mitchell worried about how Biden could even “get back to square one” with Iran or try to “reset” relations if Trump officials will not stop working post-election.
“Also, new sanctions against Iran today, again, making it harder for the president incoming to unwind the Iran nuclear deal because there’s a lot more that he’s gonna have to figure out with Iran to even get back to square one if he wants to reset relations with Europeans and with Iran in the Middle East,” she reported to MSNBC viewers in the 12:00 p.m. ET hour on Wednesday.

“Mike Pompeo is in Israel today doubling down on their, you know anti-Palestinian posture. What do they do about all of this?” Mitchell asked White House correspondent Kristen Welker who shared Mitchell’s partisan concern.
“Well, I think you’re absolutely right, and that is why you see so much frustration among Democrats on Capitol Hill and among those who are close to President-Elect Biden,” she replied, referring to the Democratic nominee who has been crowned by the media as the winner of the 2020 presidential race despite results not being certified.
“Mike Pompeo is in Israel today, doubling down on the anti-Iran, you know, posture, the pro-Israel, anti-Palestinian posture,” Mitchell repeated moments later as she spoke with former CIA Director John Brennan.
She continued her tone-deaf posturing by complaining of the audacity of the Treasury Department “announcing new sanctions today” on Iran and how that was “going to make it a lot harder for Joe Biden to try to resume the Iran nuclear deal.”
“Well, yes, and recent reports that Donald Trump was actively considering a major military strike against Iranian targets really is quite disturbing, because what we don’t want to do is to trigger some type of conflict right now during this transition period when Joe Biden has to pick up the pieces on January 20th,” Brennan huffed in agreement.
“So Mike Pompeo has demonstrated time and again that he’s willing to do Donald Trump’s bidding irrespective of what the implications are for U.S. National security interests. And so I’m hoping there will be no activity that really is going to make it more difficult for us to try to repair the damage that has been done over the last four years in terms of Donald Trump’s actions on Middle East policies,” he added.
“It really needs to be addressed very carefully. And that’s why I think it is outrageous that Joe Biden and his team have not been allowed to have insight into what is currently underway in the Middle East and around the world. This transition period is so critically important to ensure that U.S. national security interests are going to be protected,” Brennan opined.
The parade of Obama-era hacks continued as former U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice chimed in after Mitchell lamented again that “…we have the Secretary of State in Israel today, you know, cementing or trying to cement policy, anti-Palestinian policy.”
Twitter users slammed Mitchell for her unabashed bias and attacks on the Trump administration.
It’s going to be harder to reset with Iran? Are they priming the American public to be okay with the pallets of cash Biden is planning on sending? After he takes his cut, of course 🤷🏽♀️

So, “death to America” is the Biden policy? I guess, once you’ve already sold out America, it comes as no surprise.#EmemyWithin
Obama/Biden regime gave Iran billions to finance terrorism, killing our citizens?#CashForTerrorists
