As Twitchy has reported, Sen. Joe Manchin has issued a statement saying he cannot support trillions in spending when the nation faces a “brutal fiscal reality.”
Manchin statement: “While I am hopeful that common ground can be found that would result in another historic investment in our nation, I cannot – and will not – support trillions in spending or an all or nothing approach that ignores the brutal fiscal reality our nation faces” pic.twitter.com/o4SfquXHOj

We’re certain to see Democrats respond to Manchin’s statement today, but MSNBC’s Chris Hayes obviously saw it and went into all-caps mode to disagree:
THERE IS NO BRUTAL FISCAL REALITY THE NATION FACES; IT IS ENTIRELY MADE UP!

ON THE OTHER HAND THE EARTH IS GOING TO WARM PAST THE THRESHOLD ITS EVER REACHED WHILE SUPPORTING HUMAN LIFE SO THATS KIND OF A BRUTAL REALITY WE FACE https://t.co/UTKESku1Ef

Hayes adding that global warming is a threat to human life on the planet kind of gives you an idea of how seriously to take his first tweet. We’ll all be dead from climate change anyway, so …
Absolute lunacy. https://t.co/J0o50RKoVb

You can tell he’s serious because every word is capitalized.

My question is, does he really believe that or is it just for political show?
— Charity (@charitabee) September 29, 2021
He really believes it.
Read the replies to his tweet if you really want to see the lunatics!! Wow!!!

Chris Hayes and his academic (white) socialist ilk do not believe inflation exists. It's a made up fairy tale to them. https://t.co/3rZFmnB5fP

When you make the money Chris makes you don't have to concern yourself with the fiscal realities of increased food and commodities prices the way 90% of the nation does. In that vein you can write stupid shit like this with a straight face. https://t.co/PEJd4ortLF
