‘The Avengers’: Biden’s cabinet picks literally billed as ‘superheroes,’ Rubio and Cotton add perspective


In the event you have been living under a rock the past four years and were not aware of how corrupt the media establishment has become, foregoing journalism in favor of  activism on behalf of the Democratic Party, their reaction to a potential Joe Biden administration will seal the deal.

Biden’s transition team unveiled some names on Monday, to include White House staff positions and cabinet nominations — John Kerry was tapped for climate czar — and the shameless media that spent four-plus years panning every single decision President Trump ever made were falling all over themselves in praise.

 

Not that Republicans were as thrilled with the selections. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., who sits on the Senate Foreign Relations and Intelligence committees, emerged from his four year hibernation to criticize Biden’s proposed team.

“Biden’s cabinet picks went to Ivy League schools, have strong resumes, attend all the right conferences & will be polite & orderly caretakers of America’s decline,” tweeted the senator. “I support American greatness And I have no interest in returning to the ‘normal’ that left us dependent on China.”

Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., reminded us of former CIA director and Defense Secretary Robert Gates’ assessment of Biden, before adding that he was “surrounding himself with panda huggers who will only reinforce his instincts to go soft on China.”

And Cotton was just getting warmed up, as he shared a series of tweets critiquing the names thrown out, starting with this:

But don’t tell the media extension of the Biden campaign, who were busy making fools of themselves over the names released.

Perhaps the most shameless assessment came from PBS White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor, who likened the picks to “The Avengers.”

“It felt like we are being rescued from the craziness and now here are the superheroes to come and save us all,” the reporter said, claiming this was from a conversation with “a Democrat.”

This from a hard news reporter know for clashing with the Trump administration.

NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell was brazen enough to claim a Biden administration is “not going to be political,” this allegedly being a “big change” from the Trump White House — yes, Mitchell said this with a straight face.

As for shameless, here are a few other examples from the cabal that played a major role in helping elect Joe Biden:

Conservative political commentator David Limbaugh, the brother of talk radio giant Rush Limbaugh, was quick to dispel the “media propaganda” about how Team Biden is made up of “experienced moderates.”

“The fact that they have served before and are fossils does not make them moderate, especially when they share Obama’s leftist ideology,” he tweeted.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to Limbaugh from Twitter:
