From NBC News last Friday:
Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia said Friday he will oppose Neera Tanden to lead the Office of Management and Budget, imperiling the prospects of a high-profile nominee of President Joe Biden.
"I have carefully reviewed Neera Tanden’s public statements and tweets that were personally directed towards my colleagues on both sides of the aisle from Senator Sanders to Senator McConnell and others," Manchin said in a statement.
"I believe her overtly partisan statements will have a toxic and detrimental impact on the important working relationship between members of Congress and the next director of the Office of Management and Budget," he said. For this reason, I cannot support her nomination."
At the time, a number of reporters pointed out that Manchin had approved a number of Trump nominees who were a whole lot more toxic: Bill Barr, Jeff Sessions, Richard Grenell, and Brett Kavanaugh, among others.
Earlier today, an old tweet by Tanden from 2016 surfaced. In the tweet, Tanden criticized Manchin’s daughter, Heather Bresch, who was then CEO of Mylan. (As CEO, Bresch had raised the price of Epipens to $600 for a pack of two. It had been $100 when Mylan acquired it.) Here is Tanden’s tweet:
I'm sure Manchin would never be that petty. Or would he?
