Interesting that a guy who claims "civility is gone" tells someone he is F**king stupid...isn't it?? As for Manchin......he nothing more than a dirty politican who wants to ensure his next election. Glad to see you still are against the country Twig and want to see it go under."Senator Joe Manchin is clear on where he stands on the national debt and Joe Biden's spending plan. But just in case anyone wasn't sure, he made his feelings crystal clear after a nasty speech by Chuck Schumer.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (N.Y.) came to the floor after 11 Senate Republicans sided with the entire Democratic caucus to defeat a GOP filibuster of a two-month debt-ceiling hike, blasting Republicans for playing a "dangerous" game of "brinksmanship."
Schumer's comments didn't sit well with Manchin. His clear disgust was even caught on camera during the speech.
According to reports from the Senate chamber, Manchin told Schumer to his face that his speech was " "f***ing stupid."
"Civility is gone," said Manchin when approached by reporters after the vote.
Manchin is correct in his assessment. Schumer's comments made no sense when you consider that Republicans told Democrats to lift the debt ceiling on their own. They didn't need the GOP to get around the filibuster. All they had to do was use the reconciliation process that they love so much. Of course, they couldn't do it because of all the Democratic infighting."
