President-elect Joe Biden’s transition has been a flaming disaster with just a month to go until he is officially sworn in as President.
The Washington Times editor Charles Hurt described Biden as a hold-my-beer type, “who doesn’t even try to conceal his contempt for the 75 million Americans who voted for Mr. Trump in this last election. Among his latest hires is a guttermouth who spouts off to Glamour magazine about how they will attempt to work with Republicans even though, in her potty language, they are a ‘bunch of f–—s.'”
Thus far, Joe Biden has succeeded in making absolutely no one happy with his transition process, bringing in figures that draw criticism from both the right and the left.
Not only is Biden bringing in divisive figures that view Republicans as sub-humans, but he is also bringing in corporate lobbyists that leave his progressive base worried.
One move that has created problems was Biden’s selection of Representative Cedric Richmond (D-LA) as senior adviser and director of the Office of Public Engagement. The move angered climate activists as Richmond has close ties to the energy industry.
Varshini Prakash, executive director of the Sunrise Movement, said, “That’s a mistake, and it’s an affront to young people who made President-Elect Biden’s victory possible. President-Elect Biden assured our movement he understands the urgency of this crisis; now, it’s time for him to act like it.” Biden’s presidency has yet to begin, and he is already making enemies on both sides of the aisle.
