Seeing a lot of people who are trying to push cabinet picks...

but don't have an business being involved.

Just was Nina Turner on CNN trying to say that the cabinet isn't diverse enough. First of all, Nina Turner and all of her friends can stfu on trying to influence anything in the Biden Administration. This is the same lot that made up rape accusations during the primary, called Biden a racist, blamed him for all of the problems with prisons, pushed the Green Party, and on and on.

Nina Turner, David Sirota, Brie-Bire, Susan, Ryan Knight.....they can all go grift somewhere else for the next four years and see if they want to be a more constructive group next time around. Maybe then they can figure out if they want to help us win and reap the rewards or not.

3. Nina Turner and the rest of the juicebox-revolutionary brigade can go pound sand.

We just saved the Republic and these assholes are whining about not getting their way with respect to just about every damn thing Biden is trying to do. Notably, they don't complain about the absolutely demented and dangerous shit the GOP has been doing - just the allegedly insufficient purity of the new Democratic administration.

It's like if they'd been around in 1415, after Henry V and his army had just won the Battle of Agincourt despite enormous odds and being outnumbered 5-1. So Henry makes his speech that starts, "We few, we happy few, we band of brothers," and Nina Turner complains that he didn't say "we band of brothers and sisters."

6. They live in perpetual Democratic "establishment" blame mode

They even blame the Dems for the shit the GOPers/trumpers do.

They will happily allow the planet to be destroyed as long as they can blame the Dems.

Fell in and got lost. She's like a major pain in the ass that has no purpose for anything other than being an antagonist.

Sadly that moment passed long ago.
She needs to move along.

9. Nina and her pals are prime examples of the old "crabs in a basket" approach to life.

Crabs in a basket could pretty easily escape simply by using their pincers to reach up, grab the rim and haul themselves up, over an out. But, each time a crab nears the top, another crab below it will reach up to grab it and pull it back down.

Rather than trying to elevate themselves by honesty, kindness, tolerance and hard work, Nina and her fellow crabs just try to pull down anyone who has risen above them.

Like most crabs, sometimes they require hammering.
