Rep. Ilhan Omar Attacks Sen. Joe Manchin – DC Watchdog

Rep. Ilhan Omar Attacks Sen. Joe Manchin


(DCWatchdog.com) – One of the more infamous members of “The Squad” – United States Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) – went on the attack in a profanity-laced tirade against her fellow Democrat United States Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) over Manchin’s statement on Fox News Sunday that he will not vote for President Joe Biden’s and the Democrats’ signature piece of multi-trillion dollar legislation that they call “Build Back Better.”

This all started when Manchin told Bret Baier of Fox News that he would not vote for Build Back Better:

“You have the debt we’re carrying, $29 trillion. You have also the geopolitical unrest that we have. You have the COVID, the COVID variant. And that is wreaking havoc again. People are concerned. I mean I’m with my family. I know everyone is concerned. So when you these things coming at you the way they are right now, I’ve always said this, if I can’t go home and explain it to people of West Virginia, I can’t vote for it.”

Omar fired back at Manchin on MSNBC with:

“I mean, we all knew that Senator Manchin couldn’t be trusted. The excuses he just made, I think, are complete bullshit. It is really disheartening to hear him say that he has been trying to get there for the people of West Virginia because that’s a complete lie. The people of West Virginia would greatly benefit from their families having access to long-term elderly care and care for folks with disabilities. They would benefit from the expansion of the child tax credits. They will benefit from having access to pre-k. There are just so many things that, you know, the people of West Virginia desperately need. And we know that he is not working on behalf of their interests, and I really am just completely disappointed and disgusted by his reasoning.”

What do you think? Do you support Rep. Omar Ilhan, President Joe Biden, and the Build Back Better legislation, or do you support Sen. Joe Manchin’s opposition to Build Back Better?
