Biden calls Joe Manchin and Krysten Sinema for declaring themselves president

Joe Biden called Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema for being elected president without mentioning their names.

Biden said while speaking at a fundraiser in Portland, OR:

It is no coincidence that Biden expressed his belief that the Democrats could take two seats in the Senate after mentioning Manchin and Sinema. A two-seat withdrawal for the Democrats would end the Manchin and Sinema presidencies and allow the Democrats to kill the filibuster, which they should do even if the Republicans win the House.

Biden is right. The only reasons why Build Back Back Better and the voting rights legislation were not passed are called Manchin and Sinema. Right now, the Democrats are a defection for the Republican side from losing a majority in the Senate, so given that context, it makes perfect sense why Biden didn’t name names.

President Biden hasn’t forgotten what Manchin and Sinema did, and it is suspected that if Democrats get Senate seats, no one will cry that the party will no longer have to deal with self-elected presidents Manchin and Sinema.
