Lyin’ Brian Would Know! Williams Rips Manchin for Dwelling ‘in His Personal Creativeness’

In a surprising instance of irony and lack of self consciousness, MSNBC anchor Brian Williams made the laughably hypocritical declare that West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin “appears to stay in a world of his personal making and his personal creativeness.” 

In a part of MSNBC’s weeklong obsession with Joe Manchin and his refusal to destroy the US Senate by eradicating the filibuster, Williams and two of his friends TheGrio contributor Jason Johnson and Actual Clear Politics Affiliate Editor A.B. Stoddard mentioned the Democratic Celebration’s incapability to nationalize our nation’s election system by blaming Joe Manchin. 

When Williams went to Stoddard he made this weird declare: “He appears to stay in a world between Wheeling, West Virginia and a Frank Capra film of, maybe of his personal making and his personal creativeness.”



That is coming from the man who has lied quite a few instances about occasions which have occurred to him that both by no means occurred or occurred in his absence regardless of his declare of being there.

In February 2015, NBC suspended then NBC Nightly Information anchor Brian Williams and opened an investigation over ‘six separate incidents’ of him mendacity and fabricating tales.  

These incidents embody Williams mendacity about using in a Chinook helicopter throughout the US army invasion of Iraq, witnessing a useless physique floating down a avenue in New Orleans within the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and him receiving a part of the helicopter that crashed throughout the killing of Osama Bin Laden. 

Williams additionally lied about being on the Berlin Wall the day it was torn down, regardless of the actual fact he didn’t arrive on the scene till the following day.  

Because of this Williams was demoted to MSNBC the place all of the failures in media go to work. Brian Williams is the one who lives in a world of his personal making and creativeness, not Joe Manchin.

The eleventh Hour With Brian Williams



BRIAN WILLIAMS: Jason Johnson, your sign is again. Sufficient in order that I see you shaking your head no. 

JASON JOHNSON: Yeah. Look. Let’s be trustworthy, let’s not faux that Manchin’s opposition relies on some deep philosophical concern about what’s really the content material of both piece of laws. Bear in mind, he was an unique co-sponsor of the For The Individuals Act. He’s going again on one thing that he co-sponsored. He says that he’s completely pleased with the John Lewis Civil Rights Act, and that’s the one which just about establishes a return of some variation of preclearance which might cease what occurred in Georgia, which would supply methods for the federal authorities to become involved. Joe Manchin would not care about reelection, Joe Manchin doesn’t care about minority voting rights, Joe Manchin would not care about his legacy. It is a energy transfer on his behalf. If he actually cared, if this was really a problem of modifications that wanted to be made at both laws guess what? He may say that. Joe Manchin tomorrow may, you realize,  reenact that scene from “Dave”, get in an workplace with Joe Biden over the weekend, order some pizza and rewrite the darn invoice to his liking so he may go it. He’s not doing that as a result of he’s not considering both piece of laws being handed. So we’ve to dispel with this narrative that it is a technical subject, versus a bigger philosophical subject. He’s a man who is aware of he isn’t going to get re-elected, he is aware of he’s getting numerous stress from the Koch brothers, he is aware of this additionally has nothing to do with what West Virginia voters need, as a result of they’re in favor of most of those items of laws, that is about his personal energy, and his personal type of ideological flex earlier than he ultimately rides off into the sundown as a result of he will not be reelected in 2024. 

WILLIAMS: Okay, AB let’s go one deeper on this. It does appear to lots of people {that a} couple issues are true. A: Joe Manchin is loving this. B: He appears to stay in a world between Wheeling, West Virginia and a Frank Capra film of, maybe of his personal making and his personal creativeness. And what in regards to the previous requirements of social gathering cohesion and social gathering self-discipline? We additionally know it is a massive time for West Virginia between him and Capito. House to .5 of 1 p.c of the US inhabitants. They’re punching above their weight lately. 

AB STODDARD: Ah, you realize what? Very sensible electoral analysts final fall instructed us that the Democrats have been going to choose up between three and 5 senate seats, possibly eight to 10. They don’t management the senate. They preside over the senate. It’s a fifty fifty senate that might give McConnell the bulk place if Manchin have been to change events. Once more, the concentrate on Joe Manchin and his inconsistencies, all of it is perhaps true, however it’s a waste of time as a result of different members of the caucus refuse to assist S1 in its present draft. Like Senator King. So it’s a must to get to the purpose the place you’ve gotten a invoice that might really go the Democratic Caucus earlier than you begin searching for the ten Republicans. My level, I feel that Congressman Clyburn is true. Inform Joe Manchin if you happen to actually take this significantly inform us precisely what on substance you’d change. Get engaged on it. It is a dialogue I consider ought to’ve occurred months in the past. They need to have been behind the scenes urging him as a result of he has all these relationships and works throughout the aisle to be placing one thing collectively so that they wouldn’t be on this place the primary week in June when they’re actually operating out of time, about 90 days till they’re at a fiscal cliff, after which major campaigns start. You are in a marketing campaign yr and all legislating will cease. This was foreseeable that with higher planning I actually consider they might’ve averted making this all about Joe Manchin.
