His colleagues in the Senate said he didn’t have “the courage to do the right thing,” and members of the House called the rationale for his vote “a farce.” News outlets reported on Manchin’s “betrayal” and questioned his status as a moderate. Some reporters leapt to Twitter to cry out that Manchin’s decision was “objectively devastating” for the planet.
