Drama Queen Wallace Attacks Manchin For Voting Pro-America, Calls It A 'Death Sentence' [Video]
Is there anything more dramatic or pathetic than when a liberal reporter tries to spin a story where one really does not exist? The short story to Sen. Joe Machin's (WA-D) lack of cult-voting is he wants to maintain a bipartisan plan. However, because Manchin isn't sucking up to Daddy Biden, MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace is calling the move a “death sentence” to the White House's agenda.
Well, GOOD! So far, Biden's agenda has only served to divide the nation. It's only right that a member of his party be the one to stand in his way.
“West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin has, wittingly or unfittingly, ushered in an official death sentence for most of the Biden agenda by enacting a brand new standard for legislation, claiming that he will not back legislation that doesn’t have bipartisan support,” Wallace said Monday on “Deadline.”
Wallace went on to claim that Manchin delivered a “fatal blow” to the “For the People Act”, which would have undone Republican voter ID efforts predicated on the “big lie” that the 2020 presidential election was rife with fraud.
“The West Virginia senator delivering the fatal blow to voting rights legislation that would have undone the suppression laws racing through state legislatures propelled by the big lie that there was rampant voter fraud in the 2020 election,” Wallace said.
“While Manchin may also be navigating his home state’s view, his stated reasons for opposing the voting rights legislation are positively Trumpian in their detachment from the facts,” she added.

Manchin explained his reasoning in an op-ed he wrote for the West Virginia Gazzette:
"The right to vote is fundamental to our American democracy and protecting that right should not be about party or politics. Least of all, protecting this right, which is a value I share, should never be done in a partisan manner," Manchin wrote.
"I believe that partisan voting legislation will destroy the already weakening binds of our democracy, and for that reason, I will vote against the For the People Act. Furthermore, I will not vote to weaken or eliminate the filibuster. For as long as I have the privilege of being your U.S. senator, I will fight to represent the people of West Virginia, to seek bipartisan compromise no matter how difficult and to develop the political bonds that end divisions and help unite the country we love."
"American democracy is something special, it is bigger than one party, or the tweet-filled partisan attack politics of the moment. It is my sincere hope that all of us, especially those who are privileged to serve, remember our responsibility to do more to unite this country before it is too late."
