No Shame: PBS Hack Hails Biden Cabinet As the Avengers ‘Saving Us All’

The same media who spent the past four years calling President Trump, literally Hitler, is now breathlessly comparing President-Elect Joe Biden and his cabinet to superheroes saving the earth. And they expect us to take them seriously?

Take for instance Nicolle Wallace, who crassly compared the president to a dog “lifting his leg and peeing on our democracy,” but was ecstatic over Joe Biden’s cabinet picks on her Deadline: White House show, Tuesday:

[T]o talk about diplomacy being back, to talk about Joe Biden’s empathy and humanity, to talk about diplomacy being back, it is all about implicit rebuke of Donald Trump’s foreign policy stewardship over the last four weeks!” she gushed. Fellow fangirl and PBS White House Correspondent Yamiche Alcindor actually compared Biden’s team to Marvel’s Avengers:

YAMICHE ALCINDOR: That’s right and just saying they’re going to do their job and be good stewards of America’s role in this world and focus on American diplomacy, that in and of itself being a rebuke of President Trump …The other thing I will just say is I was talking to a Democrat who just said this also felt like the Avengers, it felt like we are being rescued from this, this craziness we’ve all lived through these past four years and now here are the superheroes to come and save us all. 

And it wasn’t just Alcindor. On Friday’s New Day on CNN, senior political analyst Ron Brownstein of The Atlantic also recited the ridiculous comparison, albeit he had reservations that Biden could bring newer progressive figures into his cabinet:

Well, look, experienced, competent, familiar, those are the strengths and perhaps limitations of the team that he has selected so far. I mean, you know he’s picked a lot of figures who have broad support in the party, who are very familiar in Washington. But you know, one of the most attractive things, one of the most attractive arguments he had during the campaign was that — from Joe Biden, was that he would be the transition to a new generation of democratic leaders. There were democratic activists that talked about the Avengers model, of bringing together many of the talented younger leaders who either ran for president or emerged around the country. We haven’t really seen that yet. He has picked kind of a class of familiar figures in Washington. And I think the issue is whether he can ultimately reach out in that way. And even if he does, bring them into his inner circle. I think one of the biggest questions about Biden always has been, is he truly going to be open to the way the democratic party has changed since he was first elected 50 years ago? And we’ll have to see. Because so far the appointments I think have the strength of their virtues and the limits of their virtues. 

We’ve heard this before. In May, a MSNBC reporter excitedly described a Biden rally full of failed Democrats as looking like “an Avengers sequel.”

It’s pretty pathetic and transparent for the media to spin Joe Biden as Captain America leading his team straight from the swamp to save the earth.

NICOLLE WALLACE: You know, I don’t know if it’s just a sign of this moment, but to talk about diplomacy being back, to talk about Joe Biden’s empathy and humanity, to talk about diplomacy being back, it is all about implicit rebuke of Donald Trump’s foreign policy stewardship over the last four weeks. 

YAMICHE ALCINDOR: That’s right and just saying they’re going to do their job and be good stewards of America’s role in this world and focus on American diplomacy, that in and of itself being a rebuke of President Trump is underscored what we’ve all been living through in the last four years, a president that wanted to be more isolationist, who wanted to pull back. What we saw today, I was sitting in that room in Wilmington, I was thinking about the fact that Joe Biden in some ways, for his supporters, is fulfilling the promises he made on the trail. He said he wanted to have a cabinet that looked like America and there were people there on that stage, of course talking about all of their different accolades and their experience, but they were also talking about their families who survived the Holocaust, who survived coming from Cuba and fleeing communists talked about having gumbo diplomacy, cooking food, cooking southern food as the United Nations Ambassador was talking about. All of those are what America is about, it’s this melting pot. The other thing I will just say is I was talking to a Democrat who just said this also felt like the Avengers, it felt like we are being rescued from this, this craziness we’ve all lived through these past four years and now here are the superheroes to come and save us all.

JOHN BERMAN:As for President-Elect Biden, it is interesting. Because we are seeing a lot of the same characteristics we’ve seen this entire campaign, which is that he’s not going to let himself get swept into the controversy of the moment. To Twitter feuds, to Twitter rants. To Democrats and/or Republicans lighting their hair on fire over certain things. So that’s just who he is, at this point. Ron, as for who he has selected so far, who he will nominate for various positions, people who have long ties to him, who have long ties to government, who have long ties in expertise to the areas they’re covering, but not necessarily a step into the future, you note. How significant? 

RON BROWNSTEIN: Yeah. Well, look, experienced, competent, familiar, those are the strengths and perhaps limitations of the team that he has selected so far. I mean, you know he’s picked a lot of figures who have broad support in the party, who are very familiar in Washington. But you know, one of the most attractive things, one of the most attractive arguments he had during the campaign was that — from Joe Biden, was that he would be the transition to a new generation of democratic leaders. There were democratic activists that talked about the Avengers model, of bringing together many of the talented younger leaders who either ran for president or emerged around the country. We haven’t really seen that yet. He has picked kind of a class of familiar figures in Washington. And I think the issue is whether he can ultimately reach out in that way. And even if he does, bring them into his inner circle. I think one of the biggest questions about Biden always has been, is he truly going to be open to the way the democratic party has changed since he was first elected 50 years ago?
