PBS Hails Biden’s ‘Objectively Good Week’ Amid UAW Endorsement

The fact that a union endorsed a Democrat is not exactly Earth-shattering news, but that didn’t stop Friday PBS NewsHour anchor Amna Nawaz from trying to claim that is as she hailed President Joe Biden’s allegedly “objectively good week.”

Addressing Washington Post associate editor Jonathan Capehart, Nawaz proclaimed, “We should also note, President Biden had an objectively good week this week. There were more strong economic numbers. He got a big endorsement from the United Auto Workers union.”

Nawaz also observed, “He’s really shifting into much more of a general election campaign mode. You have got key advisers like Jen O’Malley Dillon and Mike Donilon, architects of his 2020 win, now shifting to the campaign from the White House. Are they in a more general election mode now? And what does that mean for the campaign?”

Capehart agreed and hyped the campaign equating Donald Trump and Nikki Haley, “As we saw, I think it was New Hampshire Primary night, when the Biden campaign put out a statement slamming Donald Trump, but also slamming Nikki Haley, saying it, you know doesn’t matter. She — basically, she’s Trump-lite. She supports all the things that he supports. So bring it on, no matter which one comes out there.”

Further hyping the launch of Biden 2024, Capehart continued:

But I do think that the campaign shifting into general election mode now is the smart thing to do, and it’s the necessary thing to do, because we know, with Donald Trump, he’s constantly in campaign mode, whether he’s sitting in the courtroom or standing on the sidewalk giving a press conference or actually on a stage in Iowa or New Hampshire and I think the sooner that the Biden campaign gets out there, the more that it will be on. I just think everyone needs to buckle up, because between now and Election Day is going to be rough.

Nawaz would then turn to Washington Free Beacon editor-in-chief Eliana Johnson and ask what Biden’s biggest vulnerabilities are and Johnson would bring a little more sense into the conversation after Nawaz’s “objectively good week” economic spin by declaring, “I don’t think voters feel their situation is good.”

Here is a transcript for the January 26 show:

AMNA NAWAZ: We should also note, President Biden had an objectively good week this week. There were more strong economic numbers. He got a big endorsement from the United Auto Workers union.

He’s really shifting into much more of a general election campaign mode. You have got key advisers like Jen O’Malley Dillon and Mike Donilon, architects of his 2020 win, now shifting to the campaign from the White House. Are they in a more general election mode now? And what does that mean for the campaign?

JONATHAN CAPEHART: Yes, they’re in a general election mode now, because it looks like Donald Trump will be the Republican presidential nominee. It is, I think, a fight that they are looking — very much looking forward to have.

As we saw, I think it was New Hampshire Primary night, when the Biden campaign put out a statement slamming Donald Trump, but also slamming Nikki Haley, saying it, you know doesn’t matter. She — basically, she’s Trump-lite. She supports all the things that he supports. So bring it on, no matter which one comes out there.

But I do think that the campaign shifting into general election mode now is the smart thing to do, and it’s the necessary thing to do, because we know, with Donald Trump, he’s constantly in campaign mode, whether he’s sitting in the courtroom or standing on the sidewalk giving a press conference or actually on a stage in Iowa or New Hampshire and I think the sooner that the Biden campaign gets out there, the more that it will be on. I just think everyone needs to buckle up, because between now and Election Day is going to be rough.
