BlabberBuzz reported "Kamala Flips Joe Manchin The Bird As Biden Administration Strong-Arming Moderate Democrats":
U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., claimed he was surprised by the Harris interview in his state, noting no one from the administration had called him to discuss the appearance, WSAZ-TV of Huntington, W.Va., reported.
He suggested that the communication gap was a departure from the national "unity" theme that Harris and President Biden have promoted; "We’re going to try to find a bipartisan path forward, but we need to work together, that’s not a way of working together."
Whether the Harris interviews were designed to pressure Manchin and Sinema into backing the American Rescue Plan was not immediately clear. Following the TV appearances, White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked why the vice president chose to address local media in the two states.
"We want to make the case to the American people across the country. … This is a way to do just that," Psaki replied. She added that Harris would likely do more regional interviews in other states.In her TV remarks, Harris stressed the "urgency" of the $1.9 trillion plan [https://www.blabber.buzz/blab/pop/1024101-kamala-flips-joe-manchin-the-bird-as-biden-administration-strong-arming-moderate-democrats?utm_source=c-alrt&utm_medium=c-alrt-email&utm_term=c-alrt-AOL&utm_content=09CIxopn3CTrumEJRSNOL8E0.A]
