PBS White House correspondent and MSNBC contributor Yamiche Alcindor spoke with Nicolle Wallace on MSNBC Tuesday night about President-elect Joe Biden’s cabinet picks, comparing them to the ‘Avengers,’ saying “it felt like we are being rescued from this craziness that we’ve all lived through in the last four years and now here are the superheroes to come and save us all.”
She continued by saying Biden’s picks are “a rebuke of President Trump.”
“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 — underscores what we’ve all been living through in the last four years, a president who wanted to be more isolationist, who wanted to pull back,” Alcindor said.
Biden has promised to create an administration which reflects American diversity. He said he is committed to choosing a diverse cabinet that “looks like America,” and his picks would create one of the most diverse foreign policy staffs in history.
“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 that he made on the campaign trail,” Alcindor said.
“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, and talked about having gumbo diplomacy, cooking food, cooking southern food, as the ambassador was saying. All of those things are what America is about, is this melting pot. So another thing I would just say, I was talking to a Democrat who just said this also felt like the Avengers, it felt like we’re being rescued from this craziness that we’ve all lived through for the last four years and now here are the superheroes to come and save us all.”
Biden began choosing members for his cabinet on Monday and introduced them at an event Tuesday in Wilmington, Delaware. “It’s a team that reflects the fact that America is back,” Biden said Tuesday.

Biden impeachment hearing to begin this week, GOP announces first witnesses
The House Overusing Committee is holding the first impeachment hearing into President Joe Biden this Thursday and has announced the first three interview witnesses. The impeachment process will assess whether then Vice President Joe Biden received a bribe from a Ukrainian businessman to change the outcome of U.S. policy.
The committee announced three witnesses, including George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley, former Assistant Attorney General, United States Department of Justice Tax Division Eileen O’Connor, and forensic accountant Bruce Dubinsky.
“Since January, House Committees on Oversight and Accountability, Judiciary, and Ways and Means have uncovered an overwhelming amount of evidence showing President Joe Biden abused his public office for his family’s financial gain,” said Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) who also made the following lengthy statements:
“Thousands of pages of financial records, emails, texts, testimony from credible IRS whistleblowers, and a transcribed interview with Biden family business associate Devon Archer all reveal that Joe Biden allowed his family to sell him as ‘the brand’ around the world to enrich the Biden family. Joe Biden showed up on at least two dozen occasions to send signals of access, influence, and power to those who were paying the Bidens.”
“Based on the evidence, Congress has a duty to open an impeachment inquiry into President Biden’s corruption. Americans demand and deserve answers, transparency, and accountability for this abuse of public office…This week, the House Oversight Committee will present evidence uncovered to date and hear from legal and financial experts about crimes the Bidens may have committed as they brought in millions at the expense of U.S. interests.”
Just The News reports: Prompting the impeachment inquiry is an unclassified FD-1023 form that contains confidential human source information outlining an alleged bribery effort. The tip describes an arrangement in which Burisma CEO Mykola Zlochevsky allegedly hired Hunter Biden to secure access to his father, upon whom he leaned to secure the firing of then-Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, who was investigating the firm.
