On Tuesday, Keith Olbermann, a former MSNBC host, urged President Joe Biden to take decisive action against Joe Manchin, emphasizing the need for him to address the inclusion of a natural gas pipeline for West Virginia in the debt ceiling agreement.
Manchin collaborated with Speaker Kevin McCarthy to ensure the approval of the Mountain Valley Pipeline as part of the agreement. This pipeline is intended to transport shale gas from West Virginia to the east coast, but it has faced numerous legal challenges.
Manchin expressed gratitude to McCarthy in a statement.
“I am pleased Speaker McCarthy and his leadership team see the tremendous value in completing the MVP to increase domestic energy production and drive down costs across America and especially in West Virginia. I am proud to have fought for this critical project.”
In contrast, Olbermann strongly criticized Manchin for the inclusion of the pipeline and expressed his desire for President Biden to respond to the senator's actions.
“Joe Biden has still kicked Kevin McCarthy’s ass in the debt deal. Now, he may also get the chance to also kick Joe Manchin’s ass in the debt deal,” Olbermann ranted. “Manchin, that putrid, unreliable, sheep in sheep’s clothing, has sneaked into it approval for the Mountain Valley gas pipeline.”
BIDEN HAS STILL KICKED McCARTHY'S ASS. Now he must ALSO kick Joe Manchin's ass and his pipeline out of the Debt Deal
And no, sorry, Wambsgans, hero of "Succession," was NOT named after Wambsganss, hero of the 1920 World Series

Following that, Olbermann commended Senator Tim Kaine for his upcoming proposal to eliminate the pipeline addition, stating that it would protect President Biden from undermining his reputation by engaging in a futile battle against McCarthy.
