The conversation only grew more tense when Manchin taunted the Fox News host, at one point urging her to "be optimistic" and "be an American" when she said experts predict U.S. gas prices will rise around Labor Day.
Of course it's gonna. Of course they're gonna say it's Biden's fault. Of course the Faux News sleaze ball will push that talking point.
Faulkner, however, continued to press the issue, bringing up Biden's low approval numbers while stating that "elections are going to need some help" for Democrats.
"Harris, are you scared that we're going to do something good that will help our country?" Manchin shot back, prompting the Fox anchor to grow apoplectic.
"Of course not! My father served!" Faulkner shouted. "Are you kidding? Service is in the Bible! That's what we do, we serve our fellow man and woman. Of course! Don't make this personal, because it's not."
YES, THEY ARE!
In any case, what a typical righty response. Take credit for someone else's hard work, play the faux religious card (perfect example of it being used to justify her being a POS in her own mind...) and whine when their tables are turned.
This was hilarious.
After that heated moment, Faulkner again pushed Manchin on the low approval ratings Biden is "rocking right now," remarking that the West Virginia senator doesn't sound very supportive of his own party.
"I work with what I have here in the majority party we have as a Democratic Party. I'm working with the president, who has accepted the proposal I put forward and negotiated," Manchin responded. "Balanced energy policy. It's wonderful for our country. I know people who don't like the president and don't like Democrats might be upset. It is not whether you like the president or you like Democrats. Do you like America? Do you want to fight inflation? This bill does it."
No, righties don't like America, not unless it's a twisted version in their own heads.
And no, they don't want to do anything about inflation or the economy. Misery is their political strategy.
