Democrat Puts Manchin On Blast On CNN, Claiming He ‘Doesn’t Care’ About Black People
New York Democratic rep. Jamaal Bowman put West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin on full blast during an appearance on CNN Monday, calling him a “white man” who “doesn’t care” about black people.
Because everything is about race with the radical left. There’s nothing a person can do to ever appease the woke crowd. Nothing. So why bother trying? It’s futile.
“It’s tremendously frustrating for me as a black man in America,” Bowman went on to say to CNN during the interview, transforming the spending bill into an issue about race from his perspective.
“Because once again it’s an example of Joe Manchin — as a white man — showing that he doesn’t care about black people, he doesn’t care about Latinos, he doesn’t care about immigrants, he doesn’t care about women, and he doesn’t care about the poor,” Bowman continued.
Bowman then went on to add that he thinks Manchin’s concerns were driven by money instead of supporting people of color.
Because, once again, if you don’t get on board with whatever the consensus of the Democratic Party says, you’re a racist.
“It went from 3.5 trillion to 1.75 trillion [dollars] because of him, his special interests, his donors, and lobbyists were cutting the bill for several months, because they did not want this bill to pass,” the congressman said.
“Why? Because this bill disproportionately supports people of color. It supports women. It supports children. It supports those who are poor and lifts them out of poverty. Why wouldn’t Manchin want to support that when this would benefit West Virginia tremendously?” Bowman asked.
Bowman also attacked Manchin on Twitter.
“Wow @Sen_JoeManchin, with all due respect, when you say you’re a no on Build Back Better – is it you? Or is it the special interest 💰💸 that powers you?” he posted in a tweet.
“I’m inviting you to my district to see just how badly we need this bill. Will you tell my community ‘No’ to our face?” he then said.

Bowman was not alone in his criticisms of Manchin for choosing to oppose President Joe Biden’s massive Build Back Better spending bill. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki also gave a heated response. It read:
Just as Senator 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 and be true to his word.
In the meantime, Senator Manchin will have to explain to those families paying $1,000 a month for insulin why they need to keep paying that, instead of $35 for that vital medicine. He will have to explain to the nearly two million women who would get the affordable day care they need to return to work why he opposes a plan to get them the help they need. Maybe Senator Manchin can explain to the millions of children who have been lifted out of poverty, in part due to the Child Tax Credit, why he wants to end a program that is helping achieve this milestone—we cannot.
Everyone’s least favorite independent socialist, Bernie Sanders, also took a shot at Manchin.
If Joe Manchin does not have the guts to stand up to the powerful special interests, he's going to have to explain that to the people of West Virginia who are hurting and hurting badly. pic.twitter.com/U5OeNlk6ea
