Joe Biden steers clear of Bernie Sanders and similar progressives for cabinet positions

Progressives and Democrats alike banded together to stand behind former Vice President Joe Biden in his battle against Donald Trump, likey expecting that Biden would repay their loyalty by listening to their requests once elected.

However, as Biden continues to name cabinet members, he’s conspicuously skipped over progressive heroes such as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) — two former Democrat candidates that fell on their swords for Biden during the primaries.

Breitbart Editor-at-large Joel Pollak pointed out:

President-elect Joe Biden has yet to appoint any prominent supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) to his incoming administration in the month and-a-half since the November 3 presidential election.

The list of his twenty or so hires, both for Senate-confirmed and White House staff roles, includes several long-time aides, many former Obama administration officials, and even one or two “progressives,” such as California Attorney General Xavier Becerra.

But almost all of those named supported Biden in the Democratic Party presidential primary.

One rare exception is Rep. Deb Haaland (D-NM), whom Biden named as his choice for Secretary of the Interior this week, and who supported Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). Pete Buttigieg, whom Biden selected as his pick for Secretary of Transportation, ran against Biden, but dropped out before Super Tuesday to endorse him.

Biden has shocked many of his progressive backers by essentially assembling an Obama 2.0 administration as the nation rushes headlong into the new year — and Bernie Sanders supporters aren’t happy about it.

Social justice activist Ben Spielberg pointed out that “I believe the count of Bernie Sanders supporters in the Joe Biden Cabinet thus far is zero.”

In response to news that Biden could nominate moderate GOP figures to cabinet positions, former Biden National Press Secretary Briahna Gray tweeted: “There’s not a single Bernie Sanders supporter in Biden’s administration.”

Sanders himself, longtime hero and unofficial leader of the radical left in Washington D.C. has sounded the alarm on multiple occasions about Biden’s refusal to platform progressive voices in his administration.

Sanders swiped at Biden in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Thursday, criticizing Biden’s hiring choices and claiming the Democrat nominee is silencing progressive viewpoints. “Those voices of millions and millions of people deserve representation in the Biden Cabinet,” Sanders groused.

Democrats and progressives swore there could be no greater evil in the world than Donald Trump as president, but now that they’ve gotten their way, they are slowly realizing that Joe Biden isn’t any friendlier to their cause.

If I’d known that Biden would not appoint Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders to a position in his cabinet, I wouldn’t have voted for him. It would be the first time in my life that I wouldn’t have voted.

See the DVD by New Zealander Trevor Loudon “ENEMIES WITHIN”, & hear about and see them speaking @ Communist Party USA meetings. See the Communists and the Muslims “WITHIN”, not just Bernie Sanders. You will be astonished. Appointees have been put in place by Obama and the Clintons, some of which are still in place. Bernie honeymooned in Moscow, & the word is out.

Dems are shocked ’cause Lyin’ Biden reneged on his promises. ROTFLMFAO! Biden’s a Pathological Liar! He’s lied his entire career. He had to drop out of his earlier Presidential runs because of Lies and Plagiarism, and Liberal idiot’s cheated to get him elected.

Biden is the epitomy of a DC Swamp Critter.

The Democrats are upset over Biden not including certain people? 1st, I would be pissed if he asked me to come aboard! 2nd, they were never promised any positions anyway. 3rd, they have known Joe and that he is capable of being the best liar when he says anything even better than themselves. Last, Obama is the one who is telling him who to choose so they should take it out on him and themselves for thinking a democrat would think about anyone besides themself!

Fool me once shame on you fool me twice shame on me. I learned from this election that the average American is not too bright. He doesn’t learn from his mistakes and just keeps making them. I also believe in retribution you do the crime you pay the time. Unfortunately we who didn’t do the crime will also pay the price

A year ago the demoscum said the Dominium voting machines were not trustworthy. Now that they found a way to rig the machines in their favor, the machines are very fair.

With the lies told, the criminal behavior, the plagerism(s) (and there have been many of them all) how in the he** a candidate that is under investigation for his profit off foreign countries, EVER could be allowed a presidency, the people that STILL voted for him should be ashamed for ignoring such obvious betrayal to this country. My God people, wake up!

Reap what you sow! Biden and his supporters do not know the meaning of the word “truth”. All they know how to do is “lie”

Declare Trump the winner, hands down. No f’n way he they didn’t cheat in every way possible. Don’t like a Trump’s style? Who cares HOW he does it- he just makes great things happen and tells it like it is. You say he lies – can u see the truth reading the lies from our press?
