After the passage of the pork-laden atrocity known as the $1.9 trillion COVID relief bill passed the Senate on a party-line vote on Saturday, ABC spent part of Sunday’s Good Morning America sneering at Republicans for not going along with the package President Biden refused to negotiate with them on. They also warned that Democratic Senator Joe Manchin (WV) would also be a problem since he came from a state that voted for former President Trump.
White House correspondent Mary Alice Parks began her doting segment by touting former President Obama’s praise, and complained about the difficulty in getting it passed:
Democrats are feeling really good this morning. Even former President Obama heaping praise on his former vice president. Tweeting last night that the bill helps “improve the lives of families across the country” and this is why “elections matter.” But Democrats pushed this bill through Congress on their own without Republican support and they barely kept their ranks together.
