NBC Dem Cheerleaders: GOP ‘Sigh of Relief’ if Biden Defeats ‘Chaotic’ Trump

NBC Dem Cheerleaders: GOP ‘Sigh of Relief’ if Biden Defeats ‘Chaotic’ Trump

During NBC’s ongoing special coverage of the election results Friday morning, correspondent Kasie Hunt felt it was her job to try to sell a Biden presidency, even to the point of claiming that “a lot” of Republicans “will breath a private sigh of relief if this election is called for Joe Biden.” She further cheered that Biden knows “how you solve big problems,” unlike the “chaotic” President Trump.

“Republicans know that President Trump has incredible power with so many of their voters….But it also has been very, very difficult to work with him,” Hunt proclaimed. Pretending to speak on behalf of GOP members of Congress, she continued:  

It has made their lives very difficult. Trying to govern has been incredibly unpredictable, even on serious, you know, national security issues where there’s typically a lot of agreement in both parties, and sort of that sort of the standard, how are we all gonna figure out how to make sure that we are running the country in a competent and straightforward way? And Donald Trump’s chaotic leadership style has been very difficult for many of them for a long time.

Hunt then brazenly concluded that “a lot of them that will breath a private sigh of relief if this election is called for Joe Biden.”

The only “relief” Republicans may be feeling is that they have gained seats in the House, will likely retain a Senate majority, and that there is a conservative majority on the Supreme Court – all of which will block the ability of Democrats to push through a radical left-wing agenda if Biden wins. Of course none of that reality was mentioned by Hunt.

Instead, the correspondent gushed over Biden’s supposed ability to get things done: “…he is someone who deeply is embedded in and understands how our nation is governed, how you make big deals, how you solve big problems.” After claiming the Democrat taking the White House would save unemployed Americans, Hunt declared: “…the most hopeful way of looking at what could come of this if Republicans continue to take this posture, is that perhaps some of those things would be more possible in a less chaotic environment.”

Considering the far-left that control the Democratic Party want Biden to pack the Supreme Court and take away everyone’s private health insurance, perhaps it’s a bit premature for NBC to announce the end of political “chaos” in Washington.

NBC’s special coverage was uninterrupted by commercials, but you can fight back against the leftist media by letting their top advertisers know what you think of them sponsoring such content.

Here is a transcript of the November 6 segment:

SAVANNAH GUTHRIE: What are you hearing, Kasie? I mean, you know, Republicans obviously are kind of gathering in thinking about how to go from here, whether you fight on every front or whether you decide to fight another day.

KASIE HUNT: Yeah, we just heard from Mitch McConnell a couple of minutes ago, he had a press conference, and he did what he does a lot of the time, which is he’ll put out a statement on something, and then say, “That’s all I’ve got to say about it.” You’ve seen it. And so he was referring back to his post earlier today on Twitter that we’ve talked about, saying we’ve got to trust this process, we’ve got to let the process play out. So I think he was sending that signal yet again, “I’m not going to engage on this front with the President.”

And, you know, I think one thing that’s important here to remember as we’re thinking about this in the broad context, Republicans know that President Trump has incredible power with so many of their voters. And we saw almost 70 million people have voted for Donald Trump this time around. But it also has been very, very difficult to work with him. It has made their lives very difficult. Trying to govern has been incredibly unpredictable, even on serious, you know, national security issues where there’s typically a lot of agreement in both parties, and sort of that sort of the standard, how are we all gonna figure out how to make sure that we are running the country in a competent and straightforward way? And Donald Trump’s chaotic leadership style has been very difficult for many of them for a long time.

And so that’s the tension here. They are trying to figure out, “Okay, we’re afraid the President is going to attack us still and our voters are going to punish us for that.” But on the other hand, there are a lot of Republicans in Congress, I mean they ran for the Senate for a reason, they want to actually do the work that keeps the country on track. And there are a lot of them that will breath a private sigh of relief if this election is called for Joe Biden.

He is somebody, and Kristen [Welker] touched on this – and you know, there’s going to be time, I think, if we do call this race for Joe Biden, to talk about what this means to him personally. But remember, he served in the Senate for decades. Yes, he’s run for president, he’s wanted to be president his whole life, but he is someone who deeply is embedded in and understands how our nation is governed, how you make big deals, how you solve big problems. You know, there – how many Americans out there desperately need a job, desperately need help, more unemployment insurance, whose businesses are closing? Congress has so far let them down, so I think the question here, and the most hopeful way of looking at what could come of this if Republicans continue to take this posture, is that perhaps some of those things would be more possible in a less chaotic environment.
