Remember, it was all Donald Trump’s fault!
UPDATE: Kyrsten Sinema gave Mitch McConnell a pat on the back before walking over to give her thumbs down to the $15 minimum wage while doing a curtsey. Then her spokesman claimed it was sexist to criticize her.
Senator Sinema, any advice for the 839,000 Arizonans who make less than $15 an hour and are one crisis from bankruptcy? pic.twitter.com/tX9EpcXRhB— Max Burns (@themaxburns) March 5, 2021
Sen. Sinema’s spokesperson said it’s sexist to comment on a female politician’s “body language” or “physical demeanor” when HuffPost inquired about her thumbs down vote on min. wage. Okay. https://t.co/HT4ENmE6fP by @sara_bee— Amanda Terkel (@aterkel) March 6, 2021
Look at this. Folks here in AZ outraged by @kyrstensinema‘s vote to block 839,000 Arizonans from getting a raise to a living wage have been requesting $15 from her on Venmo. All declined, of course. And her account is now private. pic.twitter.com/2ehTzT8bBk— Kai Newkirk (@kai_newkirk) March 6, 2021
Disgusting https://t.co/VqVgGtjBGD— Ana Kasparian (@AnaKasparian) March 5, 2021
That’s right. The sexism is the real problem, folks. Not that she jubilantly voted to keep millions in poverty while looking like she raided Alicia Silverstone’s wardrobe from Clueless. https://t.co/ideT1CXEpq— Ana Kasparian (@AnaKasparian) March 6, 2021

This trend is outrageous:— Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (@RepBonnie) March 5, 2021
Reducing thresholds for payments (cutting off ~400k New Jerseyans)
Cuts to weekly payments
What are we doing here? I’m frankly disgusted with some of my colleagues and question whether I can support this bill.
She’s decided she’s going to be a media darling as Marie Antoinette of the establishment. Dress in a super fun way, do performatively hip thumbs downs as she votes to kill higher wages & now rub it in with symbolic cake we can all eat instead of higher salaries. #CorporateTool https://t.co/IvbzF7NfOj— Cenk Uygur (@cenkuygur) March 5, 2021
This is list of Democrats who care more about their corporate donors than their voters. Democrats said they would definitely do $15 minimum wage. They unequivocally lied. They knew these corporatists would vote no & encouraged it. Those (DE) Senators are voting on Biden’s behalf. https://t.co/9QA85ZqFRL— Cenk Uygur (@cenkuygur) March 5, 2021
Now that we’ve lost on #FightFor15 because 8 Senate Democrats voted against it with their brothers in arms, corporate Republicans. Now we move on to the punishment stage. We will run this ad in West Virginia till the end of time, depending on resources. Manchin will pay a price. https://t.co/L0mnG8K9dt— Cenk Uygur (@cenkuygur) March 5, 2021
Of 8 Dems who voted for lower wages & against the wishes of over 80% of Democratic voters (and 61% of ALL VOTERS), the 2 Delaware Senators in particular represent @JoeBiden‘s true position. He was never in favor of $15 & he still isn’t. Report the truth. @daveweigel @JStein_WaPo— Cenk Uygur (@cenkuygur) March 5, 2021
By doing this & bringing in cake to rub it in as the corporate Marie Antoinette, @KrystenSinema is basically telling working Americans to fuck off on behalf of of her corporate donors. I assure you that feeling is mutual. No one should ever donate a dollar to her or vote for her! https://t.co/A7Ljv3X3au— Cenk Uygur (@cenkuygur) March 5, 2021
Also, some of these Democratic Senators literally profit off of keeping wages lower. This was our @tytinvestigates report on how Joe Manchin makes money by keeping wages as low as possible: https://t.co/t3AV4NZ3Aj https://t.co/psLh5sgP6u— Cenk Uygur (@cenkuygur) March 5, 2021
The Democrats are the party of neoliberalism now.
“Who could have ever predicted that?
How did you just know that the issues where Joe Biden would stiff his base would be the $2,000 stimulus checks, the $15 minimum wage, free college and the $50,000 of student loan debt relief and Universal Health Care? How did you know that he would come out of the gate guns blazing on woke, trans, climate and open borders issues which are the polarizing middle class lefty issues?”
I’ve hammered this point over and over and over again.
“As I have repeatedly pointed out lately, the Democratic Party is two parties with two different agendas. The White upper middle class professional liberal wing which is animated by culture war politics, who hate other White people in America and who are addicted to grandiose displays of their own virtue are the ruling elite in the Democratic Party. These people are getting a big boost within the party due to their fellow affluent suburbanites who used to be Republicans joining the party. …”
The Democrat Independent Liberal Elites (DILEs) are the ruling class or governing wing of the Democratic Party. The Democratic Leaning Working Class (DLWC) voters always get shafted on their issues. Trump voters realized this when Obama was president and broke away and crashed the GOP.
The Democratic establishment are the professional bourgeoisie.
I wasn’t bothered by Trump losing.
I wasn’t bothered by the Republicans losing the Senate. I knew that Neoliberal Joe and the Democrats would prove me right with unified control of the government.
Note: What is stopping Neoliberal Joe from wiping out Millennial student loan debt before Tucker Carlson comes on tonight? NOTHING. Cenk admits that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce backs the Democrats now.
