MSNBC regrets not getting ‘Zelensky bounce’ in biden vote

On monday MTP Daily, Phil-in co-host Garrett Hacke and a panel of liberal pundits lamented that President Biden did not see “Zelensky bounce” in the election to lead the war in Ukraine. For some reason, they thought that the irresistible popularity of the heroic Ukrainian leader, President Volodymyr Zelensky, should be transferred to Biden.

“President Biden Zelensky is not getting a bounce. And when you look at the vote, it’s kind of interesting. “ Observing a confused haake. As the number of votes appeared on the screen, the frustrated anchor announced: “Biden’s wartime policies are popular, but he’s not getting credit for them … Why isn’t Joe Biden getting credit for what Joe Biden does?”

Maria Theresa Kumar, a leftist activist and president of Voto Latino, warned that Biden was not getting enough credit on the entire “list” of supposed achievements: “Well, we can say, why didn’t he get that bounce right after the infrastructure bill? I mean, you actually have a list. “

Hawke devised a strategy to get that elusive “bounce” in the Biden election: “… The White House is considering sending the president to Europe. I mean, is it something to take credit for the idea that he could catch the Zelensky bounce there?

Kumar jumped: “… I think going to Europe, he’s going to prove again that America is back, that leadership is back, and you can believe us … and the American people, I think, will follow the lead.”

At the time of the discussion, Geoff Bennett, the Washington correspondent for PBS NewsHour, formerly of NBC News, spoke to Pafari: “I can sound a bit poliana-ish, but sometimes the president’s leadership is his own reward.” Kumar immediately agreed: “All right.” Bennett continued his deception: “History books can reward President Biden’s leadership here The way voters can’t come in November and beyond. “

The reporter then punished his media colleagues for being unfair to Biden:

… and the White House, I think, blames the current company omission in our media for shifting the goalposts. The question for a year was, will this administration be able to control this 100 year old epidemic with arms? And now that the epidemic is shifting, God willing, at a local level, the question is about inflation and gas prices.

After a while, Hakey hoped: “… is this something that Democrats can hold on to, and we’ve talked about Ukraine and management, foreign policy management, all these issues because maybe it solves their messaging problem?”

Kumar gave a startling answer as he tried to equate Ukraine’s invasion with Donald Trump’s presidency and Republican voting reform law:

Well, I think one place where many Democrats are unique compared to the Republicans is that when Trump was in office, the Democrat-Democratic voters felt that our democracy was in trouble. When the President spoke of dictatorship versus democracy, he realized that dismantling our institutions, access to voting booths, you could go on. And so, if he conveys the message that we are living a moment in the 21st century who is going to win and our sacrifices to ensure that democracy is not ruined abroad and does not come home …

Amid all the deaths and destruction in Ukraine, MSNBC is still paving the way for Democrats to gain some sort of political advantage from the horrors of war.

Here is a transcript of the March 14 panel discussion:

1:49 PM ET

Garrett Hackey: Maria, it’s interesting and Rick [Tyler] The point is that President Biden is not getting a Zelenskyy bounce. And when you look at the vote, it’s kind of interesting. We will put some numbers from the navigator on the screen. Biden’s wartime policies are popular, but he is not getting credit for them. I mean, the way these numbers are shaking is interesting to me. Joe Biden Why doesn’t Joe Biden get credit for doing popular things?

Maria Theresa Kumar [PRESIDENT & CEO, VOTO LATINO]: Well, we can say, why didn’t he get that bounce right after the infrastructure bill? I mean you actually have a list. And I think part of that is how the Biden administration has to do so well they know what lever to pull inside Congress. He has been a legislator for so long, he knows how to get things done quickly in Ukraine. He knows how sausage is made.

But I think his challenge in this administration is to keep the American people informed of what is happening. And what he doesn’t want to repeat is what happened in the 1970s. Our generation has not seen inflation historically.

1:51 PM ET

Kumar: But they are missing that beat, so they can actually read the historical tea leaves. And one thing that is sad [Jimmy] Why Carter was not constantly communicating with the American people. And if Biden can go head to head and start talking about why and where he could go at the same time – and I think this is the last time we’ve talked – go to the communities where Republicans have vetoed, the decision not to vote for the infrastructure bill. Took, and actually go there and say, “Cut this ribbon because I’m, the President of the United States, getting my job back. [sic]”But inflation is going to be the biggest issue for him.

Hackey: Well, I’m curious when it comes to sending the president somewhere, what do you do with the report that we broke here on NBC, that he thinks – the White House is thinking of sending the president to Europe. I mean, the kind of thing that he could capture Zelenskyy bounce there that he had an idea for taking credit for?

Kumar: Well, again, one thing we didn’t do – we rarely report that he was chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He understands this idea of ​​a complex world. And then he became vice president and knows a lot about these leaders and the people behind them.

Tony Blinken has done a fantastic job, and I think by going to Europe, he’s going to prove again that America is back, that leadership is back, and you can believe us. And that’s huge when it comes to soft energy. And the American people, I think, will follow the lead. But we have to compete [sic].

Geoff Bennett [PBS NEWSHOUR CHIEF WASHINGTON CORRESPONDENT]: Can I say something? I may sound a little poliana-ish, but sometimes the president’s leadership is his own reward.

Kumar: Exactly.

Hake: Oh. [Laughter]

Bennett: The history books here can reward President Biden’s leadership so that voters do not come in November and beyond. And your great point about how the White House doesn’t necessarily have its work together on messaging. President Biden himself made the remarks at a Democrat rally on Friday. He said you ask the American people what the American Rescue Plan is, and they say, “What is it?” Although he did not say heck. [Laughter]

And so, you know, it – and the White House, I think, blames our media, the current company, for dropping the goalposts. The question for a year was, will this administration be able to control this 100 year old epidemic with arms? And now that the epidemic is shifting, God willing, at a local level, the question is about inflation and gas prices.

HAAKE: Well, you want to talk about context here. Let’s rewind the tape a little more. You and I have covered the first Trump impeachment together, which was about Ukraine. It looks like a sack that encloses with a drawstring.

1:55 PM ET

Hackey: Maria, every time you turn, I like to write six times and underline “inflation”. But IU wonders, I mean, is this something that Democrats can hold on to that feeling, and the Ukraine and the management, the foreign policy management, we’ve talked about all these issues, maybe it solves their messaging problem?

Kumar: Well, I think one place where many Democrats are unique compared to Republicans is that when Trump was in office, the Democrat-Democratic voters felt that our democracy was in trouble. When the President spoke of dictatorship versus democracy, he realized that dismantling our institutions, access to voting booths, you could go on. And so, if he conveys the message that we are living a moment in the 21st century who will win and that our sacrifices are going to be inflationary to ensure that democracy abroad is not eroded and does not come home. Because it’s going to happen – we’re going to talk about raising gas prices, we’re going to talk about raising food. You know, Ukraine and Russia are the breadbasket of many people. And if they – if he explains it – and he has to explain it now.
