Joe Biden promised unity and a return to normal.
But after his disastrous first month in office, Americans are wondering what happened to those promises.
And now Joe Biden got hit with a giant setback after this humiliating rejection.
Joe Biden nominated controversial Democrat Party activist and Hillary Clinton confidante Neera Tanden to serve as Director of the Office of Management and Budget.
From the start, Tanden’s nomination seemed in trouble as Republicans honed in on toxic comments on social media.
Tanden also stood accused of punching a reporter as well as outing a sexual harassment accuser.
West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin dealt Tanden’s nomination a serious blow by announcing his intention to oppose Tanden’s nomination.
With Democrats holding 50 seats in the Senate, Manchin’s defection meant the Biden administration needed to win over the support of one Republican Senator to win confirmation for Tanden.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki doubled down on Tanden’s nomination claiming that because of her gender and race she was qualified to serve as Director of the Office of Management and Budget.
“Neera Tanden, an accomplished policy expert, would be the first Asian American woman to lead OMB, has lived experience having benefitted [sic] from a number of federal programs as a kid, looking ahead to the committee votes this week and continuing to work toward her confirmation,” Psaki wrote.
However, RINO Republican Senators Mitt Romney and Susan Collins announced their intention to vote against Tanden’s nomination.
At this point, unless Lisa Murkowski says she will vote for Tanden, the nomination is doomed and every day Joe Biden refuses to pull her nomination or Tanden bows out will only extend the defeat.
