MSNBC Slobbers Over “Outstanding” Biden, “Great, Effective” Harris

Political News

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris don’t have to look under a tree for their Christmas presents this year, they just have to tune in MSNBC. On the Christmas Eve edition of Velshi, the host and liberal guests Molly Jong-Fast and Dean Obeidallah fawned over the President and Vice President without the slightest trace of embarrassment.

Jong-Fast, who penned a syrupy profile of Harris for Vanity Fair, blamed the media’s “misogyny and racism” for negative opinions about the Vice President, and offered this spectacular insight: “Vice President — very complicated job, right? It’s not the President, right? You are not supposed to be President, you’re supposed to work for the President. So it is a very nuanced thing…”

When it came to Joe Biden, Velshi was adoring: “The guy gets a lot of stuff done. The guy’s brought Russia to its knees, and yet all sorts of people are like, ‘I don’t know, Joe Biden, 2024?’”

Obeidallah, an MSNBC Daily columnist, sounded like a like he was auditioning to replace Karine Jean-Pierre:

Joe Biden is running. If he runs, he will be the Democratic nominee. He has done an outstanding job. Vice President Harris has been a great, effective Vice President. One day she might actually be our President of the United States, and I hope so. So, look, of course you’re going to debate what Joe Biden — is he going to run again or not? He’s running. He will be the nominee, he will win in 2024, and hopefully usher in Democratic control of the House and Senate again.

MSNBC’s Velshi

December 24, 2022, 8:58am ET

MOLLY JONG-FAST: There is a lot of inherent misogyny and racism in the way that news is reported, in the way that people read news, in ways that we don’t even know. You know, there is an intersectionality that we should be thinking about when we read about women, when we read about people of color, that is inadvertent sometimes, and sometimes it’s not. But it really is a problem, and I think it’s a problem that has dogged Vice President [Harris].

And so, what I tried to do is I tried to go into that interview — and I knew a lot about her, and I had talked a lot of people, and I had read a lot of stuff, and you know, there’s a lot of stuff she had done over the last two years that just had either been reported in a very pointed way, you know, like her trip to the DMZ, right? She went to the DMZ, she went North Korea, you know? And it was reported in a way that was a little bit to make her seem diminished.

And so I tried to go in there and look at all the things she had done, the countries she had been to, and the work she had done as Vice President. Also, Vice President — very complicated job, right? It’s not the President, right? You are not supposed to be President, you’re supposed to work for the President. So it is a very nuanced thing to write about.

ALI VELSHI: She’s being the Vice President that, actually, Joe Biden was, doing stuff, getting stuff done, like maybe not having these people on TV all the time is a pretty good thing. That said, Dean, you hear it a lot, a whole bunch of people thinking, “Eh, Joe Biden going to run again?” I mean, the guy gets a lot of stuff done. The guy’s brought Russia to its knees, and yet all sorts of people are like, “I don’t know, Joe Biden, 2024?” What do you think?

DEAN OBEIDALLAH: This is what people in the media do, Ali — I’m not sure you’ve noticed this — but they love to have this kind of a horse race thing going on, we have debates on the idea of Joe Biden, is he going to run or not? Joe Biden is running. If he runs, he will be the Democratic nominee. He has done an outstanding job. Vice President Harris has been a great, effective Vice President. One day she might actually be our President of the United States, and I hope so. So, look, of course you’re going to debate what Joe Biden — is he going to run again or not? He’s running. He will be the nominee, he will win in 2024, and hopefully usher in Democratic control of the House and Senate again.
