MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell tries to turn Biden's hairline fracture into a major scandal

Go fuck yourself, Andrea.

................


On Sunday night, Bidenís team informed the media that he was visiting an orthopedist because he twisted his ankle while playing with one of his dogs. Bidenís physician diagnosed him with hairline fractures in his mid-foot that will require the president-elect to wear a walking boot as he recovers in the coming weeks.

Footage has emerged of Biden walking out of the doctorís office.

Despite that video, Mitchell criticized the Biden team for secrecy surrounding the incident. When she addressed the news on Monday, the MSNBC anchor pointed out that Bidenís injury happened on Saturday, but the media wasnít informed of it until Sunday when he was on his way to the doctor.

ďThey werenít as forthcoming as you would hope they would be with the press pool thatís supposed to cover him,Ē Mitchell said.

8. Aren't we still waiting for the date of his last negative covid test before he got it?

Add it to the list way after "How do you know Obama tapped your phones?"

24. Damn good question!

She can barely put together a coherent sentence anymore, not that she was ever anyone worth listening to, anyway. But advanced age has sapped her ability to perform a decent job anymore, and she needs to retire gracefully. I guess MSNBC is afraid she'll sue them if they push her out. Really, though, anyone else who made as many mistakes as she constantly does would not last five minutes on tv news.

6. So what were Trump's grades again?

Trump would never hold onto information for a whole day, it would be instantly blurted out or covered up for a lifetime.

26. If enough people start switching channels to CNN when she comes on,

MSNBC will eventually find something else to do with her. I tell people the same thing about Chuck Whatshisname. If you don't like their show, don't watch it and bitch about it, just quit watching it.

That's what happens when you're active and don't exist on McDonald's, KFC, and Twitter. Not to mention this is what happens when you have a dog and love it. Trump isn't capable of love or compassion toward humans or animals.

18. Far past time for Andrea Mitchell to retire.

Her news career has been an exercise in gaffs and both siderisms, less we forget Mitchell was involved with outing Valerie Plame as CIA. AM has always been a stooge, time to go home and care for her ghoul.

19. It's inaccurate reporting period.

The Biden camp was completed transparent about what happened and in a timely manner. Her comments on this are breathtakingly irresponsible and just plain wrong.

20. Oooh, "secrecy" and not as forthcoming as you would hope on Thanksgiving weekend

Really, Mrs. Greenspan? The initial call on the president elect's injury was a sprained ankle on Saturday. Is that vital news the American people need? No? It wasn't until the next day and an MRI showed the hairline fracture. Even at that, not a particularly debilitating injury. Have we seen the actual records from President Trump's stay with Covid 19? Or what he really went to Walter Reed for back in November 2019?

Stuff it, Andrea.

21. I started a similar thread the moment I heard her...

...start to spout this bullshit.

Oh, shut up, Andrea!
Mitchell is making a big fuss about lack of transparency because we didnít know until the next day that President-elect Biden has some minor hairline fractures in his foot.

Operative words:
MINOR
HAIRLINE
FOOT

Itís not his spine. Itís not a stroke. Itís not cardiac. Itís not COVID-19.

Talk about making a mountain out of molehill.

This week, Biden fails to tell the press about twisting his ankle immediately. The next thing you know, he'll be wearing a tan suit!

... or her looks ...
... or her ability to speak well...
... she's simply crappy at the job....
