Far-left ‘Squad’ member Ilhan Omar unleashed an expletive-laced rant following Senator Joe Manchin’s announcement that he was a firm ‘no’ vote on President Biden’s ‘Build Back Better’ social spending spree.
Manchin announced his decision, sending shockwaves on sides of the aisle, during an interview on “Fox News Sunday.”
“I cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation. I just can’t. I tried everything humanly possible. I can’t get there,” he told guest host Bret Baier following months of negotiations with the White House.
“My Democratic colleagues in Washington are determined to dramatically reshape our society in a way that leaves our country even more vulnerable to the threats we face,” Manchin continued.
“I cannot take that risk with a staggering debt of more than $29 trillion and inflation taxes that are real and harmful to every hard-working American at the gasoline pumps, grocery stores and utility bills with no end in sight.”

Ilhan Omar Says Joe Manchin’s Reasoning is ‘Complete Bullshit’

Ilhan Omar (D-MN), in voicing her opinion on Joe Manchin’s decision, showed what happens when simple minds do their best to express themselves but can’t find the words to do so.
“We all knew that Senator Manchin couldn’t be trusted,” Omar said in an interview with MSNBC’s Velshi Sunday. “The excuses that he just made, I think, are complete bullshit.”
Our readers may recall the numerous times the media melted down when Donald Trump used crass language.
As if to underscore her simple tirade, Omar tweeted those same thoughts about Manchin (D-WV).
“Let’s be clear: Manchin’s excuse is bullshit. The people of West Virginia would directly benefit from childcare, pre-Medicare expansion, and long-term care, just like Minnesotans,” she wrote.
“This is exactly what we warned would happen if we separated Build Back Better from infrastructure.”

Losing Their Minds
Omar isn’t the only one losing her mind over Manchin’s decision.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki essentially accused the Democrat senator of lying and refusing to take phone calls from the administration.
“Senator Manchin promised to continue conversations in the days ahead, and to work with us to reach that common ground,” Psaki said in a statement.
“If his comments on Fox and written statement indicate an end to that effort, they represent a sudden and inexplicable reversal in his position,” she added.
Psaki explained that Manchin’s ‘no’ vote marks “a breach of his commitments to the President and the Senator’s colleagues in the House and Senate.”
Lengthy statement from Psaki on news Manchin won’t support BBB: “Just as Sen. Manchin reversed his position on Build Back Better this morning, we will continue to press him to see if he will reverse his position yet again, to honor his prior commitments & be true to his word.” pic.twitter.com/1YiP1aOTrC

Psaki’s enablers in the media couldn’t believe Manchin would defy the ‘Build Back Better’ zealots in the Democrat Party.

Jennifer Rubin, the Washington Post reporter who masqueraded as a conservative for several years before finally admitting what everyone already knew, was typically dramatic.
“If Manchin is no on both BBB and voting, Biden is done. Democracy is hanging by a thread,” she fretted. “Hard to think of anyone more destructive.”

MSNBC’s Sam Stein described Manchin’s decision to vote against his party’s $1.75 billion social spending bill as “devastating for the planet.”
Gotta love a so-called journalist using the word ‘objectively’ to describe the halting of a Democrat wish-list spending bill as “devastating for the planet.”
The media continue to be the enemy of the people.

Psaki followed up the aforementioned statement by continuing to call him a liar and suggesting they would continue to “press him” to change his vote.
Wow such brilliance from @PressSec & the White House comms team! Publicly calling @Sen_JoeManchin a liar will definitely convince him to support your boondoggle! You don’t sound desperate or bitter at all! 👏🙃🎊❤️ https://t.co/oJo8rVsvHM

Joe Manchin will need to watch his back following Ilhan Omar’s ‘bullshit’ rant and a warning from the White House that they would continue to harass him.
It was just a little over a month ago that activists swarmed Manchin’s car as he attempted to leave a parking garage, temporarily blocking his exit, shouting repeatedly, with at least one individual physically leaning on the vehicle.

In late September, activists on kayaks rowed up to Manchin’s houseboat and shouted demands for him to support President Biden’s ‘Build Back Better’ spending spree.

Fortunately for America, Manchin didn’t cave.
But with ‘democracy hanging by a thread,’ expect the unhinged left to grow increasingly more unstable.
