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.

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’
Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”
“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”
The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.
The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.
Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
