Mainstream media reporters have made it more than clear over the last week or so that they believe Joe Biden’s prospective cabinet picks are the bee’s knees, and that any Republican criticisms of them will be met with the types of swift rebukes that sound like they were written by Democratic operatives instead of supposedly objective reporters.
Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) found this out a couple of days ago after posting a tweet critical of Biden’s picks that was relatively mild in contrast to some of his Senate colleagues’ more harsh ones.
It all started after Rubio took to the Twitter machine on Tuesday to weigh in, correctly pointing out that the Ivy Leaguers Biden touted would inevitably “be polite & orderly caretakers of America’s decline” and would return America “to the ‘normal’ that left us dependent on China”:
Biden’s cabinet picks went to Ivy League schools,have strong resumes,attend all the right conferences & will be polite & orderly caretakers of America’s decline
I support American greatness
And I have no interest in returning to the “normal” that left us dependent on China

Even though, as I noted earlier, his criticisms were rather tame in comparison to some others, it wasn’t tame enough for CNN’s newest Resistance™ rock star Brianna Keilar, who did an entire segment Wednesday that sounded like state-run TV propaganda, pouting over how Rubio supposedly demeaned Biden’s picks “for being educated and qualified and networking with people who know about the fields they are now leading in”:
Rubio is also going after Biden’s picks for being educated and qualified and networking with people who know about the fields they are now leading in, this is what they’re doing, what they are in charge of. It is a rejection of experience and expertise that permeated the Republican Party even before President Trump.
LOL. Get that? What Republicans really object to here is not that these arrogant leftist elitists will lead us down the wrong path, but the fact that these guys are so educated and have so much “expertise and experience” in their fields, according to Keilar.
She went on to laughably try and defend Biden and Harris against Rubio’s critique by pointing out that neither one of them has an Ivy League education:
And for someone poking at Ivy League educations, he fails the note that Biden will be the first president in four decades without one, without an Ivy League education, and Kamala Harris the first winning presidential ticket in 44 years without Ivy stripes.
Keilar then proceeded to continue to prove she completely missed Rubio’s point by noting that the Trump administration had numerous Ivy Leaguers within its ranks, including Trump himself and his son-in-law Jared Kushner, who she opined (not reported as reporters do, mind you, but opined as someone on the opinion side would do) had a portfolio that “eclipses his expertise”:
So look at President Trump’s administration which for four years has been at the helm of the American greatness that Rubio champions. It’s full of people that went to Ivy League schools — Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Dartmouth. Trump himself attended UPenn. Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, and senior advisor whose portfolio constantly eclipses his expertise went to Harvard.
Watch Keilar, who is supposed to be an objective journalist and not an opinionated political commentator, sneer and snarl over Rubio’s tweet below:
Yikes. If it looks like state-run TV and sounds like state-run TV, it probably is state-run TV.
As I’ve said before, this is only a mere preview of the type of nauseating, full-blown Democratic pillow-plumping from the media we will see on an hourly basis in the event Biden and Harris are certified next month as the winners of the election.
Though they won’t change their stripes no matter what, every time they get called out for obviously slanted reporting like this, their credibility takes a ding. This is why we must continue to fight the good fight and expose liberally biased figures in the media for who and what they are.
