After yesterday’s news that Joe Manchin couldn’t support Biden’s horrible ‘social infrastructure’ bill in the Senate, he’s since become the most hated man in America by liberals and Democrats and the media wants you to know how evil he is.
Two-thirds of cable news appears to settled on a plan to portray Joe Manchin as the world’s most horrible person while declaring Democracy is dead. The numbers this week will reflect one big collective yawn as a result. Likely the lowest ratings of the year coming…

A quick peruse of Twitter and you’ll see media outlets trying to paint Manchin as someone who hates poor people:
“In recent months, Manchin has told several of his fellow Democrats that he thought parents would waste monthly child tax credit payments on drugs instead of providing for their children” https://t.co/UnsELqt7b4

The dirty truth about #JoeManchin: he looks down on poor people and doesn’t trust them to be responsible with extra money from the government.

It’s like that time when George W Bush didn’t support the Democrat plans to expand SCHIP because it went too far and they all started claiming he hated children.
AOC is also claiming this morning that Manchin refusal to support BBB “represents such an egregious breach of trust of the president”. Seriously.

AOC says Dems have “every right to be furious with Joe Manchin.”

Here’s more on what I’m seeing this morning:
Rep. @AOC (D-NY) says Sen. Manchin opposition “is an outcome that we warned about” and Dems have “every right to be furious with Joe Manchin.”

Don’t forget: this isn’t just about Joe Manchin. It’s about the dark money and billionaires and coal interests behind him, which keep winning at ours and the planet’s expense. Manchin is a living breathing reminder that America is often more oligarchic than it is democratic.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail, Joe Manchin's hometown paper: "'We need this so bad': Build Back Better backers say bill would protect West Virginia's most vulnerable as Manchin resists."https://t.co/3cq4GgxMan

.@Sen_JoeManchin's new remarks on the crucial #BuildBackBetter Act completely forsake the moral imperative to tackle the interlocking crises of climate, environmental injustice, and insufficient support for families with children and eldercare responsibilities.

Senator Joe Manchin, who made millions from coal, says he won't vote for Build Back Better, which would:
▪️ cut child care & health costs
▪️ fund preschool for 6 million kids
▪️ invest billions in clean energy
His state West Virginia ranks bottom 5 in health care and education. pic.twitter.com/izT3KyvafB

Working families are reeling. Young people are reeling. Seniors are reeling. @Sen_JoeManchin come to my district, look people in the eyes & explain why they don’t deserve a government that has their back. That is what BBB is all about. Showing up for Americans.
Shame on you.

Last time I checked, I didn’t vote for Joe Manchin for president.
