Ilhan Omar and the rest of the Democrats were stunned.
They just suffered a major defeat they never saw coming.
And Ilhan Omar pitched a fit when this Democrat told her the one word she never wanted to hear.
West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin stunned all of Washington by going on Fox News Sunday and announcing he could not support Joe Biden’s nearly $5 trillion socialist spending bill.
“If I can’t go home and explain to the people of West Virginia, I can’t vote for it,” Manchin stated. “And I cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation. I just can’t. I’ve tried everything humanly possible. I can’t get there. This is a no on this piece of legislation. I have tried everything I know to do.”
Without Manchin’s vote, Biden’s socialist spending scheme is dead.
That set off a firestorm of rage across the Democrat Party.
In fact, when Ilhan Omar heard Manchin was a “no” vote on the socialist spending bill, she fumed that his reasoning was “bullshit.”
Let’s be clear: Manchin’s excuse is bullshit. The people of West Virginia would directly benefit from childcare, pre-Medicare expansion, and long term care, just like Minnesotans.
This is exactly what we warned would happen if we separated Build Back Better from infrastructure. https://t.co/dhzcSk0qUV

For months, Joe Manchin kept telling Democrats that he opposed the welfare programs, Green New Deal provisions, and expansions of socialized medicine contained in the massive spending package.
But Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and the rest of the Democrats didn’t take Manchin seriously.
Instead, they pressed ahead with a nearly $5 trillion socialist scheme, wrongly believing he would eventually come around.
Of course, that turned out to be a major mistake.
And Ilhan Omar’s profanity-laced tirade shows the level of frustration on the Left with their last best chance to turn America into a socialist nation going down in flames.
