CNN Bemoans Manchin & Sinema Aren’t Going Out of Their Way to Make Biden ‘Look Good’

While previewing President Biden’s speech marking the one-year anniversary of his presidency, CNN Newsroom guest and Inside Politics anchor Abby Philip revealed what she really believes the purpose of the legislative body of the federal government is, and that is to make the “President look good.”

After a discussion on the Biden administration’s struggles to get much of their agenda passed in Congress, as well as Biden and the Democrat Party’s crumbling poll numbers, CNN Newsroom co-anchor Victor Blackwell turned to Abby Phillip and asked “are we seeing any dissatisfied progressives or even moderates start to pull away a bit from the President, considering the legislative narrative and those polling numbers?” 

Phillip bemoaned how “you’ve got two very powerful, it seems, moderates in the Senate”, referring to Democrat Senators Joe Manchin (WV), and Krysten Sinema (AZ) who have so far not caved to the intense political pressure to do away with the legislative filibuster.

She then added that Manchin and Sinema “are not going out of their way to make their President look good. They have done some things in the last week, whether it was Kyrsten Sinema going to the Senate floor just before Joe Biden showed up on–in the Senate to essentially embarrass him.” Phillip continued her whining: 

I think there’s a sense there that Joe Biden doesn’t have any political sway over them, and when it comes to liberals, there is a dissatisfaction here. Many of these progressives held their nose and voted for Joe Biden even though they did not believe that he was Progressive enough, and now they want to see receipts. They want to see results.

Apparently, Phillip believes Manchin and Sinema were elected to “make their President look good.” I would recommend Phillip review Article I of the United States Constitution and show us where that is in their official duty as Senator.

We do know that the media doesn’t feel this way about Republican Senators who are serving during a Republican presidential administration. Especially when a moderate Republican is responsible for tanking a major piece of legislation important to a Republican President. When that happens, they are eagerly referred to as “mavericks.”

VICTOR BLACKWELL: Nine months, ten months out from an election here. Abby, are we seeing any dissatisfied progressives or even moderates start to pull away a bit from the President, considering the legislative narrative and those polling numbers?

ABBY PHILIP: Well, I mean, two data points. You’ve got two very powerful, it seems, moderates in the Senate who are not going out of their way to make their President look good. They have done some things in the last week, whether it was Kyrsten Sinema going to the Senate floor just before Joe Biden showed up on–in the Senate to essentially embarrass him. So that’s one data point on the moderates. I think there’s a sense there that Joe Biden doesn’t have any political sway over them, and when it comes to liberals, there is a dissatisfaction here. Many of these progressives held their nose and voted for Joe Biden even though they did not believe that he was Progressive enough, and now they want to see receipts. They want to see results. And there has been less progress on some of the things that they really care about. How the White House manages that dissatisfaction is going to be the most important question of this year. Midterms are for the base. It’s when you got to get your people out, and if they can’t find a way to energize those folks and tell them that there’s more coming down the road, they’re gonna have a real problem in this election cycle.

What do you think?
