Oh Please... give me break.. give me a F**king break [View all]

I am screaming at the TV .. can you let Biden set up his cabinet.. he is not going to be Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren AOC or any one else.. He is Joe Biden.. He ran on being Joe Biden.. He got elected as Joe Biden.. for the love of God.. after all the insanity of the last 4 years let Joe Biden bring it back to some kind of normalcy.. reset our priorities.. get us back into our treaties... re-align with our allies.. keep our Obamacare.. (watching Joy Reid and Jason Johnson was already saying who could and could not be in the Biden cabinet).. Jason.. he will use the people that he feels he can trust to get the job done that he Joe Biden ran on.
