Ben Rhodes On GOP Not Recognizing Biden’s Win: ‘We’ve Seen This Movie Before’ | The ReidOut | MSNBC 1


Ben Rhodes recalls how Mitch McConnell treated President Barack Obama during his 8 years as president and how they’re treating an incoming Biden Administration: "The reality is Mitch McConnell never acted like Barack Obama was a legitimate president even though he won overwhelmingly twice. We've seen this movie. But it's a dangerous dynamic here." Aired on 11/09/2020.

    Every republican president has given a recession but Trump takes the cake 🤕

    When will Americans learn ?

  2. I’m really wishing it was McConnell that had bought it instead of Connery or Trebek.

  3. Trump is a baby and apparently the Republican senate has decided to join him in the nursery.

    • Well it is easy. You would think that to win people over you have to convince them with facts. Real things that show their life is getting better under your leadership. Trump demonstrated that this idea is rubbish. You just lie and people will believe it. Doesn’t matter if people are actually dying, as long as you can feed into their prejudice and fear, you win. They love your for it. You don’t even need to keep your story straight, do a good job or even do the job. Trump spend nearly as many hours working as he did golfing and watching TV. 71 million people voted for Trump. And lie are easy. Just make something up. Keep them messes angry at somebody else. Since lying works… why not do it. It is cheap and easy to do. It still gets you the votes. That is why the Republican party has joined Trump in the nursery. Half of America is already in it.

    • “Widespread fraud” is Trumpspeak for there is “no credible evidence.”

      @Paul H Yup. Absolutely. Just like ‘so much for the tolerant left’ is Trumpspeak for ‘why won’t you let me spew my hatred with impunity’.

    • @Dirk von Ümlaut or “people have told me” is trumpspeak for “I made it up”

      @NinjaTyler Facts.

  4. The Republican way: Burn down the house then blame the new owners for not having a roof.

    • It works well. It work with Bush too. Obama is blamed for TARP, even though it was a Bush program. So if it works, don’t fix it. Game plan is same as the first. Let the dem fix the problem, and thus become unpopular because of it because fixing problems demands difficult and painful. Then the Republicans can come back, likely with another Trump like figure and party, trashing the house and leaving a mess. Then get a dem president to fix it again. Rinse and Repeat since 1981.

    • @Nick L 👍well said ✌️

    • @Ronan Brodrick I’m sorry, could you repeat that?

      @Buff Straw Hahaha +1

      You would probably like my playlist..

    • @Ronan Brodrick If an original thought ever finds its way into your head, please let us know.
      Until then, happy parroting.

    Moscow Mitch McConnel cannot even pretend to be on team USA. How can KY stand their bad uncle one more term? He’s poison.

    Hypocrite much? The right whines the loudest. Only a fair election if they win. smh

    The moral and ethical rot that allowed Trump’s rise is the same rot Mitch has been creating for years before Trump came along

    • @The Truth is Out Now Enjoy the next four years. 🙂

    • @M Vasquez What else can you expect from a self-called conservative blog site…it’s time you and the other trumpTURD cesspool swimmers get real…

    • Barbara Carpenter | November 9, 2020 at 9:59 PM | Reply

      McConnell said trump should sue. Well start with Ky and SC. Had to be some finagling going on there. mcconnell and graham supposedly got reelected. Two of the worst things in the senate

      2020: Kobe, Covid, Riots, Floods, Dust clouds, Wildfires, Earthquakes, Volcanoes, Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Heat waves, Explosions (Beirut), Sean Connery…


      Nope. This is 2020. EVERYTHING goes wrong. The election will be reversed. TRUMP will be President. This is 2020. And it’s only the beginning of the 2020s.

    • @DM RR It’s probably Eric Trump messaging madly under a whole lot of fake names.

  10. Georgia! one of the candidates for the US Senate! Jon Ossoff! @

  11. so while I have sympathy and empathy for conservative voters, for human beings that just have a difference of opinion, however I have none for politicians trying to play out some sick self serving power strategy like mcconell and the gop, if they want to play these games the time for listening is over, we steam-roll right over them in every way at every opportunity mercilessly

  12. Well… we will need to remove these actors from the stage. Jails

  13. How do “Moscow Mitch” and Lindsay (two-faced liar) Graham manage to get re-elected? Something really stinks there…

    “You’re fired”
    Hopefully you will pay accordingly.
    Law & Order along IRS
    will be awaiting for you with arms wide open

    • Yep, Trump just ‘TERMINATED’ the Defense Secretary but I bet U $50 it was he who turned to Trump and said he was leaving…..I heard Trump is firing anyone in The W.H. now who doesn’t agree with him……Does Trump realize he only has 70 days left in the job and does he really think the Defense Secretary or anyone else would care if they were fired? That Defense Sec get’s paid a fortune and probably has another job already lined up.

  15. Trump only interested in “Make America Golf Again!”….

  16. trumpet lost the election..I’m so happy
    trumpet is unfit for a president .he’s a criminal for this creep

  17. Trump said dead people voted. I wonder if some of these dead people were alive when they voted and then died of Trump-19.

    For reasons beyond my understanding, Trump supporters will go to their graves
    defending him.
    Therein lies the problem..
    Unless everyone follows the guidelines, no one is safe.

  19. Need to hold a bunch of the pro trump rallies …mask free so they can all get covid

  20. As Vladl said ,trump made America great again by losing the election!!!CONGRATS,BIDEN🎉🎉🎊🎊🎊🎊🎊👍💓💓💓💓🥂🙌
