WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia said on Tuesday he would vote against the nuclear deal with Iran, even though U.S. President Barack Obama already has enough Senate support to protect the agreement.

“I believe that to be a super power, you must possess super diplomatic skills, and I believe that we can use these skills to negotiate a better deal,” Manchin said in a statement.

Sooner or later, the Lincoln Project had to train its scope on Jared Kushner, Trump's empowered son-in-law who has botched every important assignment in the White House. With signature remorseless style, this ad explains how has failed all of them: "This pampered princeling has never met a problem that he couldn't f*ck up."

Sadly for 150,000 dead Americans and counting, one of those Kushner assignments was a strategy to contain the coronavirus pandemic. Typically, he has declared victory and accomplished nothing.

We warmly congratulate Jared on his new title: "Secretary of Failure."
