Sens. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema are standing strong against the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion spending bill, and it’s caused some Democrats to lose their minds. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threw down the race card, accusing her of excluding members of color from negotiations. Some have called for Manchin and Sinema to be stripped of their committee assignments (please do), while others have proposed using extortion to get Manchin to have a change of heart.
The Onion has decided to take a shot at Sinema, and let’s just call it a misfire.

Imagine being told ten years ago the highest rated late night talk show would be on Fox News and a Christian satire site would be running laps around the onion. Yet, here we are. https://t.co/eDGypAGYeq

I'm old enough to recall when The Onion was mildly amusing.

This is humor?

Sad you guys finally gave up on comedy

Proof yet again that the left sucks really, reeeeeeeeealy hard at political satire.
Imagine that this used to be what passed as satire before @TheBabylonBee came along.

I get it, you’re liberals. Man, you guys used to be funny. You’d have thought that getting bested by @TheBabylonBee would make you focus on humor, but here we are.

Is this supposed to be funny? Or just a lame parody of a lame parody?

Nation mourns as The Onion actually becomes less funny than dad jokes. https://t.co/MjyJsNemQY

Sinema is funnier than The Onion.
