Trump Will Lose To Biden With This Bold VP Pick, Say CA Dems | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC 1

 

As Trump trails in the polls and Democrats seek a mobilizing running mate for Joe Biden, a lesser-known name has recently emerged: Karen Bass. The liberal Congresswoman broke a barrier as the first Black woman speaker in any state in the union, yet she defied political labels by using that post to broker a centrist compromise with then-governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. In this edition of The Beat’s Backstory Series, Ari Melber reports on why some Democrats are eying that experience now, noting “as California’s Speaker, she was the government official responsible for an economy that, if it were a country, would be roughly the fifth largest in the world.” The original report traces how Bass deployed a tough, collaborative and bipartisan style to engineer one of the most consequential budget deals in the U.S. – leading some of her home state Democrats to push for her as a great option for Biden. (This interview is from MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber, a news show covering politics, law and culture airing nightly at 6pm ET on MSNBC. ). Aired on 8/6/2020.

    I love Karen Bass. She held a town hall during the impeachment hearings that was very informative and comforting. She would make a great VP!

  2. Why are all Trump family products made in china?

    All of these brilliant tough motivated women how on earth did we get all those slugs in congress??

    After listening to Ari relating Karen Bass’ background Biden should choose her..got my vote!

  5. Prosperityinmotion | August 6, 2020 at 10:08 PM | Reply

    Wow! I did not know her at all. I’m impressed with this giant among women!

    Thank you Ari. I did learn a lot. Karen is now to me, totaly acceptable as a vp pick. I would love to see Kamala Harris as that BUT she would be an awesome Attorney general as well. Whatever happens, I’m 1000% behind it. Good luck to you all!

  7. Bass comes across as a perfect fit for VP. Imagine putting anyone of your choices as VP, and they would also be a perfect fit elsewhere in the administration. For example, Harris as AG to go after Trump Crimes Commision. I think she would like to ask Barr that question again.

    • She’ll destroy Trump 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • @hill monica Хорошо Русский Актив. Я уверен, что вам понравится тоталитаризм. Вернитесь в Москву, где пропала бутылка водки.

      @hill monica no word yet, but indictments are being prepared i’m sure. Deutche Bank just handed over all Drumpf’s financial info., the stuff he fought desperately to keep secret.

    • Shawni Edwards@ thanks for that tonight. Senator Kamala Harris has an interesting background. Her mom was from India and her dad from the. Carribean islands. She’s a hard working senator and was a tough persecuting attorney. I don’t know too much about Rep, Karen Bass but I learned a lot tonight. It’s great she has so much experience working on the California state legislature! Sounds great to me. Be safe and sound. 🙏 😊 thanks…

    • Nope not harris

  8. Trump isn’t just running for president, he’s also running from prison. He doesn’t want to be president; he needs presidential immunity.

  9. Helen Cordero | August 6, 2020 at 10:17 PM | Reply

    She would be a rock star VP 💫 💫 💫

  10. Good to know about this brilliant woman!

  11. Thank you Ari for this excellent research of footage. We will need someone strong, kind and persistent.

    She is a toughie, but works well with opposition, to do the people’s business!

  13. Janine Anderson | August 6, 2020 at 11:29 PM | Reply

    Note to Biden: Please seriously consider Karen Bass. ❤️🙏🙏❤️❤️

    • @L D I love Elizabeth Warren as well but you bringing up Karen bass in Cuba I see nothing wrong with her trying to help the Cuban people? why do you? She wasn’t helping the Communist leaders!

    • @hhhh9579 I’m betting not a single person has ever clicked on your stupid spam links.

    • Ken White for one it’s not a spam link it’s proof who Joe Biden really is… Scared? Ashamed? https://youtu.be/AufLL3jCkXw

    • @hhhh9579 Scared of whiny little turds like you? Not fkn likely, Tovarish

    • Janine Anderson | August 8, 2020 at 7:08 PM | Reply

      hhhh9579 🐈😊😄, In this fallen and broken world no one is perfect. Name one politician that has never made wrong choices. Is Trump any better? Uh NO! He is without a doubt thee worst President in history after Nixon. And just because someone with the wherewithal to help a foreign country (even if it is communist) does not make a person a communist.

  14. Love that she said no one goes home until the work is done.

    I love this woman. She would make a excellent VP.

      THE SO CALLED THE BIG SWITCH IS A MYTH, DEMOCRATS HAVE NEVER CHANGED AND AT THE CORE OF DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS WHITE SUPREMACY<< THE ONLY THING THAT CHANGED IS HOW DEMOCRATS OPERATE> FOR INSTANCE , INSTEAD OF USING VIOLENCE TO KEEP BLACK PEOPLE IN CHECK, THEY GAVE THEM WELFARE SO THAT THEY CAN FEEL GOOD ABOUT THE DEMS AND KEEP VOTING FOR THEM< THE DEMS EMPLOY TOKENISM AND SYMBOLISM TO GET BLACK VOTES SUCH AS AFRICAN AMERICAN RUNNING MATE, BLACK PRESIDENT AND BLACK ,MAYOR> THEY USED THE SAME TACTICS BEFORE THE CIVIL WAR WHEREBY THE OVERSEER OF A PLANTATION WAS BLACK. THE OVERSEER OF CHICAGO IS LORI LIGHTFOOT . HER ROLE IS TO SUPERVISE THE CARNAGE IN CHICAGO. ..OBAMA DID NOTHING ABOUT THE VIOLENCE AND CORRUPTION HE LEFT IN CHICAGO AS A SENATOR BECAUSE HE SOLD HIS SOUL TO HE DEVIL. EUGENICS CONTINUE WITH PLANNED PARENTHOOD AND WITH VIRUSES LIKE HIV AND EBOLA AND COVID THAT WERE DESIGNED TO DEPOPULATE BLACKS > THEY ALSO TRIED FORCED STERILIZATION AND SYPHILIS OUTBREAK < IT WAS DURING THE PRESIDENCY OF LYNDON JOHNSON THAT MARTIN LUTHER KING WAS ASSASSINATED BY THE FEDS AND JOHN LEWIS' SKULL GOT BROKEN , LYNDON JOHNSON WAS A DEMOCRAT>..YOU WONDER WHY THE DEMS ARE AGAINST POLICE REFORMS ? IT IS BECAUSE THE DEMS INCLUDED KKK IN THE POLICE FORCE. THEIR ROLE IS TO COMMIT ATROCITIES AGAINST AFRICAN AMERICANS WHICH ARE THEN BLAMED IN REPUBLICANS > IT IS WHY DERICK CHAUVIN GOT AWAY WITH MURDER OF A MAN IN 2007 THEN LYNCHED GEORGE FLOYD IN BROAD DAYLIGHT IN DEMOCRATS RUN CITY OF MINNEAPOLIS IN 2020, THE PROSECUTOR THAT SPARED HER IS AMY KLOBUCHAR, GOOGLE AMY KLOBUCHAR < MINNEAPOLIS HAS A LAW THAT ALLOWS SEGREGATION OF SETTLEMENTS SO THAT BLACK PEOPLE CANNOT LIVE WITH WHITE PEOPLE

    Thanks Ari, I’m a progressive and I liked your profile on Karen Bass

  18. The GOP are simply mini-clones of the corrupt & criminal POTUS.

  19. I had no idea, just how amazing Karen Bass is. Definitely a great choice for a major role in the next administration.👍👌👏

  20. This goes out to the ppl who claims she’s a Scientologist…

    Bass, who belongs to a Baptist church in Los Angeles, said in the statement that she was attempting to find common ground with the group’s followers. 

    “Back in 2010 I attended the event knowing I was going to address a group of people with beliefs very different than my own, and spoke briefly about things I think most of us agree with, and on those things — respect for different views, equality, and fighting oppression — my views have not changed,” she said.
