'Critically Important' That Biden Is Now Receiving The President's Daily Brief | Andrea Mitchell 1


John Brennan, former CIA Director, joins Andrea Mitchell to discuss the "critical" importance of Joe Biden receiving his first President's Daily Brief today and his concerns on the assassination of an Iran nuclear scientist. Brennan says one concern of his is "if a country had authorized or conducted the attack I think it's beyond the norm in terms of practices that states should engage in, in terms of assassinating senior officials of public government. Israel & Iran are not in state of war. Just the way we would condemn any assassination carried out by Russia, China, we should do it when there's a senior official of a sovereign state who is assassinated." Aired on 11/30/2020.

    • OMG! Biden is just more of the same DC establishment elites that have duped us into never-ending wars, purely for their personal financial profits. And they’re on both sides of the political isle, too. They go to the same Ivy League colleges and cocktail parties as the corporate media establishment elites. Have we found the weapons of mass destruction yet? Trump is an outsider who tried to take America back. But how would a nation know this, if they were unknowingly being duped by a media monopoly that was secretly elite-owned?Has the establishment media covered any or the absolutely hideous things found on Hunter’s laptop? And do you really trust the FBI, CIA, and NSA? What were Assange and Snowden attempting to warn us off?

      @Alice Du Maurier Get lost racist!

    • @stephen ashton wow. That was amazing.
      You managed to bring a well known history if the cia all the way back around to trump.
      You used lies and complete fabrication to get there but you got there.
      Surprised you didn’t pull a muscle with all the mental gymnastics you just did.
      There us 0 evidence of trump doing cocaine.
      The guy does not even drink.
      Hope you are enjoying fantasy camp.

      @Will Peyton I’m sorry, I thought you were a warts & all Trumpski, and accepted the druggy obvious.
      Listen to some of Noel Casler’s podcasts about his years working as a talent wrangler on Trump productions — from the teen beauty pageant days in the ’90s to the Celebrity Apprentice years.
      He chanced to espy Trump once doing lines in a limo with a hot model or two — one of Donald’s stairways to heaven. Of course, he tried to do it discreetly — leave zero evidence as you say — but this is DJT were talking about, and discreet is not exactly his middle name. (it’s John)
      I only mention the time Noel saw him coking with models in a limo is because it’s so Trumpesque, and you just know that bragged about it to a select few of his confidantes — like Jeffrey E.
      But that was just a glitzy sighting. He often had to have powder from some snorted stimulant wiped from under his nose before appearing on camera. But that is all part of keeping things discreet. Trump fancied himself a crown prince of the New York social scene in the 80s, 90s & 00s, when everybody and his stock broker’s dog was on blow. The fuel of the Wolves of Wall Street.
      DJT is smart — he doesn’t drink. That’s what did brother Fred in. Horrible habit. Makes you a sloppy fool like Rudy. Adderall keeps you sharp.

    • U nailed it

  3. Whewww chile, I know Trump hot like fish grease…

  4. The lack of a covid relief package for THE PEOPLE, will create MILLIONS of HOMELESS/DEAD before we ever see a vaccine. Congratulate Congress.

    • Marvin Martian | November 30, 2020 at 4:22 PM | Reply

      You must mean the senate!

    • Specifically, Moscow Mitch and all Republicans who refuse to put any pressure on him to send the relief bill to the Senate floor. Congress passed a bill in May.

    • Congratulate the Republican Mitch McConnell, who is blocking everything.

    • Hey E Hole – this has NOTHING to do with Congress. Congress approved an outstanding proposal in the summer called the HERO’s act. The GOP controlled Senate – specifically Moscow Mitch – won’t even table it because it doesn’t offer money to crooks like the GOP bill did… the one that made millions for those with GOP and Trump connections.

  5. The only Briefings Trump gets everyday was Briefcase full of Hamburgers.

  6. Donald is not intelligent that’s why he does not read the Intelligent briefings 😏

    • @BOB LOBLAW 😂😂😂😂😂

    • At a St. Patrick’s Day reception for the then Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen in 2010, Biden noted that the visitor’s mother had lived in America.
      “His mom lived in Long Island for 10 years or so, god rest her soul, and, er, although she’s, wait—your mom’s still alive. It was your dad [who] passed. God bless her soul. I gotta get this straight,” Biden said.

    • At an Illinois campaign rally in 2008, Biden said: “This election year, the choice is clear. One man stands to deliver change we desperately need. A man I’m proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next president of the United States—Barack America!”

    • @BOB LOBLAW That may or may not be trye and if is, not so bad. I have dyslexia, same kind of thing. Now, Donald trump last weekend ordered not only our russian spyplanes to stop flying reconisense but had the “invisible” planes to be dismantled! Orders from poo tin again? Commissar?

    • The real briefing not the child’s version.

  7. i bet on his first daily briefing they did warn him about the trump terrorist group

  8. It will be refreshing to see a president doing the job they are paid by the people to do instead of tweeting n golfing.

    Joe knows how to read. He will be ok in spite of Trump efforts to prevent him from proceeding in his doing is job.

    • Bidens job has always been standing in the background tugging at his nuts. So, yes, he will keep doing his job.


  10. The Blue Arrow | November 30, 2020 at 3:41 PM | Reply

    At least President Elect Biden will be a president who will actually read and understand the daily brief.
    It’s doubtful that Trump even read it once over the past 4 years.

    • Trump never listened or read the briefings. The staff always found it in the trashcan and had to retrieve it, telling him those were very important issues he needed to read.

    • IIRC they made small cue cards for him, with short bullit points. Started with 3, but noticed he stopped paying attention past two, so they reduced it to two.

      I think Biden is gonna be frustrated when they show up to brief him pn the state of the nation, world, potential conflicts etc – with a couple of post-it notes.

      We also know there were certain subjects, like for instance stuff regarding Russia, he would get really pissy aboit hearing and fight with them over. So they basically have avoided bringing that stuff up. I hope that presedence doesn’t transfer to the briefing of the new admin just out of routine.

    • Hopefully there’s no big words like “psalmist” in them, right?

    • Christine Zerkel | November 30, 2020 at 7:10 PM | Reply

      Trump doesn’t know how to read. He has no attention span

  11. I’m fairly certain Director Brennan just said the PDB was in crayon with Scratch-n’-Sniff pictures of other world leaders.

  12. Finally someone important and able to read ,will receive the pdb,
    And most in important ,someone will read it!!!

  13. As Mary Trump said, “Donald will tear everything down on his way out the door.”

  14. It will be so nice to not have a cartoon character as president soon

  15. Even though Biden is only going to get it now, he probably knows more than trump does after four years.


  17. It’s going to be a breath of fresh air to have competent people in the office again.

    Who else thinks trump was behind the Iran nuclear scientist killing???

    • Alice Du Maurier | November 30, 2020 at 4:10 PM | Reply

      Trump gets Sheldon Adelson’s money then wait for orders from Nethayahu. One way to put an end to the hijacking of our foreign policy by Israel would be to bankrupt the Israeli lobby. We must get the family of our fallen and wounded marines to file a class action against all the entities of the Israeli lobby who pushed for war under the guise of fighting terror when in fact it was for fostering terror. LET’S BANKRUPT AIPAC!!!

  20. The real briefing not the child’s version.
