Boston Globe Columnist Flips Out After Manchin Destroyed Bernie Sanders LOL
Joe Manchin of West Virginia made some more waves within his liberal-infested party after he smacked down Bernie Sanders. Sanders asked for it, in my opinion. The socialist ran an op-ed in Manchin's local paper, slamming his fellow Democrat for not supporting socialism more. Sanders tried to pander to West Virginians using the Charleston Gazette but Manchin made it clear, no one was having it.
Manchin responded by saying that no out-of-stater is going to tell West Virginians what to do. Adding that "No op-ed from a self-declared independent socialist is going to change that."
Boston Globe liberal columnist Renee Graham, along with other members of the liberal cult, deemed Manchin a supervillain out to destroy the world. Graham claimed that Manching, a life-long Democrat, is a 'big coal' operative looking out for his own self-interests.
It's almost comical how quickly the left turns on Democrats who don't support the hive's agendas.
JONATHAN CAPEHHART: Let’s just – Renée, stick with the Joe Manchin situation here. Because Senator Bernie Sanders, chair of Senate Banking [Capehart later corrected himself, saying Sanders is chairman of the Senate Budget committee.] I mean, he – well, he put out – he did an op-ed in the Charleston Gazette, the West Virginia newspaper.
. . .
Manchin responded to the Sanders’ op-ed by saying, this isn’t the first time an out-of-stater has tried to tell West Virginians what is best for them despite having no relationship to our state. No op-ed from a self-declared independent socialist is going to change that. Ooh, the burn. Renée.
RENEE GRAHAM: I mean, what if find interesting is that Joe Manchin is so deeply offended that this outsider, the senator from Vermont, would try to tell West Virginians what's best for them, while Joe Manchin is trying to tell 49 other states what’s best for them. The hypocrisy is off the charts with this man.
But that's what we're looking at, right? I mean, he doesn’t want a clean-energy bill. Well of course he doesn’t. He’s dirty-coal Joe. He wants to make sure that all that good money he's got coming in from coal in West Virginia keeps coming in, and there's no way he is going to compromise that for something, as, in his mind, minute as saving the planet and helping the environment.
It’s really appalling that Joe Manchin is kind of swanning around as if the country elected him president, and he is the person who is going to have a say in what goes in this country and what happens in this country. There has to be some repercussion for this. I don’t know at this point exactly what that pushback is, but I think simply kowtowing to Joe Manchin and Sinema, for that matter, is not the way to go.
