MSNBC’s Ari Melber asked his guests Tuesday why, specifically, they thought Joe Biden might be better than Trump for America now right now.
“It comes down to one simple thing for me, Ari, and that’s race. He’s with a man that understands and appreciates diversity over this nation. I think Biden does and I know for a fact Trump doesn’t. He will never appreciate the diversity that made this country great,” Jack O’Donnell said.
“It’s hard to say this because all politicians are basically dishonest and have to be. It depends to who they are talking to, I understand that. Biden is honest. Biden doesn’t cheat. Biden understands people. Biden cares about people. Trump cares about one thing and one thing only and it’s him and his money and his ego, that tremendous ego,” Barbara Res said. “Biden doesn’t have that. As far as looking at what Trump did to our country and continues to do to our country today by showing up with the Supreme Court with people that will violate the Constitution, he’s a terrorist, a nightmare. Biden is good. Biden has experience. Biden knows government. All of those things. I can’t think of almost anyone that wouldn’t be better than Trump.”
Michael Cohen, Trump’s former fixer, said, “Donald Trump cares for no one or anything other than himself. I‘ve often said and I said it in front of the House Oversight [Committee]. He’s a con man, he’s a fraud, he’s a racist. I‘ve also stated he’s a homophobe … I really do believe, and I told you I put my money where my mouth is, I believe this is going to be a landslide victory for Joe Biden. I really do.”

Donald Trump’s eyes and ears at the Justice Department banned from the building: report
The Associated Press reported Thursday that President Donald Trump’s eyes and ears at the Justice Department was barred from entering the building.
The report revealed that Heidi Stirrup, "an ally of top Trump adviser Stephen Miller," was pressuring Justice Department staff to hand over sensitive documents and information about alleged "election fraud" and other issues that are important to Trump.
Attorney General Bill Barr told the AP on Tuesday that there was no widespread election fraud or voter fraud, as Trump has claimed for the past several weeks since losing the 2020 election. Trump alleged that Barr “hasn’t looked very hard."
Obama says some Black men are persuaded by Trump’s ‘macho’ bravado bragging about women and money
In part two of the SnapChat interview with President Barack Obama, Peter Hamby asked how President Donald Trump was able to persuade so many Black men to support him over President-elect Joe Biden.
When Obama was elected he got about 95 percent of the Black vote, where Biden got about 80 percent.
"Well, look, I think men, generally, are more susceptible to public figures who act tough, sort of the stereotypical macho style," Obama said, while videos of Trump showing off his flabby muscles appeared. "I don't think Black men are immune to that any more than White or Hispanic men are. A lot of the values of pop culture are extolling wealth, power, frankly, greed, not thinking about other people because you're so ruthless you're just looking out for yourself."
‘I’m utterly embarrassed’: Michigan Republican admits Rudy Giuliani ‘waded into the realm of insanity’
Michigan state Rep. Aaron Miller, a Republican, this week accused Rudy Giuliani of entering the "realm of insanity" with his testimony to lawmakers in Michigan.
Miller made the remarks following Giuliani's wild testimony to the Michigan House Oversight Committee.
"I’m happy to thoughtfully listen to evidence and claims and that was what today was supposed to be about, but Mr. Giuliani’s final statement waded into the realm of insanity," Miller said, according to The Detroit News. "He made wild and broad partisan insults for several minutes that had nothing to do with the election, and it was frankly unacceptable, shameful, and pathetic and distracts from any evidence that we might hear."
