Derrick: Our Concern Is Less About People Than It Is Priorities In Biden's Cabinet | Andrea Mitchell


  1. I am French, but I am delighted to once again see competent and professional people leading the United States.
    Welcome back America!!

    1. Thank you. We all continue to be embarrassed by these pro trump trolls but I appreciate your delight on our behalf

    1. That’s why it’s good Trump was voted out. He was a destruction to the greatness and strength of this country. The strength is not in white but in white and black/people of colour, that’s what makes it difficult for any adversity to stand America.

  2. I think when your guest make a valid point the host should show respect by acknowledging it. It makes for more kindness.

  3. I find it sad that the USA still has race as a prominent topic considering there is such a diverse society. It seems people are defined by their colour or ethnic origins rather than as American.

    1. That’s the way the US was founded…Its the back bone of the constitution…”All men were created”…Men, meaning white land owning men…This country is only is still in its infancy compared to other countries…White men in particular wan to remain in power irrespective of party…That’s why our governmental officials don’t represent the make up of this country…I’m not sure if there will ever b a United States of America…White people don’t want to fully buy into a representative government…The privilege that comes with power is too intoxicating.

    2. Well said Beverly! The way I see it there are only two types of people….. Sinners, and repentant sinners. Peace Beverly

    3. I’ve been told the land was won in a race war and the brownskins lost….for over half of a century.

    4. Yea….Democrats constantly bring it to the forefront as a way to cause division, even in cases where there is none. “Divide and Conquer”….They use that strategy regularly

  4. Biden is already putting Trump’s appointees to shame. How refreshing is it to have public servants who are actually competent?

    1. @Wally Censorship A major accomplishment of Biden’s is the quality of the people he has chosen-a majority if not all, are experts, with years of experience and proven positive accomplishments during their careers, as well as respected not only in America but also world-wide.
      Unlike trump, he is not choosing people that will be only loyal to him, and will tell him only what he wants to hear and agrees with him on all issues, or those who have been major donors for his campaign, or friends/family members; but rather, Biden wants those who are loyal to the Constitution/Bill of Rights, to the American people and our country-huge difference.

  5. In other words: “we’ll work with McConnell, the trumps and barr” cause they are ‘very fine’ Americans. America’s giant criminal mulligan system is working as it should.

  6. Anything is better than traitor boy and the republicans, they clearly have a pre-civil war vision for the country…

  7. You also need an attorney general will look at charges of sedition against the trump lawyers powell & linn? And trump himself.

  8. Maybe one day, the people who are least affected by the problems in our systems will be the ones who try as hard to fix those problems as the people who are most affected.

  9. Of. Ourse it’s less about the people it’s about how to make a bigger government to control the population. That’s always the objective with the libertarians
