Iconic Superman Actor Goes Against Hollywood, Applauds Manchin for Blocking Biden’s Spending Plan

Liberal Hollywood has been suffering a collective mental meltdown over the fact that Congress successfully shot down Joe Biden’s massive $2.2 trillion climate and social-spending bill known as “Build Back Better Act.”

Moderate Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia, who says the true cost will be closer to $4.91 trillion, voted against the measure and called it a “mammoth” piece of legislation.

Actor Dean Cain, who played the iconic role of Superman in “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman,” stood out from his liberal colleagues by congratulating Manchin for boldly standing up for what he believes is right.

“Way to go @Sen_JoeManchin!!” Cain wrote to Twitter.

Cain also shot back at actress Yvette Nicole Brown who attacked Manchin, but failed to recognized the majority of the Senate voted against Biden’s spending bill.

Brown suggested Manchin is the only senator holding back the bill.

“You forgot about the other 50 Senators who also disagreed with the bill,” Cain said.

Hollywood star Bette Midler also became enraged with Manchin for siding with Republicans to defeat the measure.

Midler insulted Americans who live in his state. In a vicious tweet, she called West Virginians “poor” and “illiterate” despite the fact that they voted for a member of the Democrat Party, which Midler supports, into the Senate.

“What Joe Manchin, who represents a population smaller than Brooklyn, has done to the rest of America, who wants to move forward, not backward, like his state, is horrible,” Midler said.

“He sold us out,” she continued. “He wants us all to be just like his state, West Virginia. Poor, illiterate and strung out.”

Then Midler quickly apologized for her “last outburst” because she’s “seeing red.”

She proceeded to compliment West Virginians by calling them “good people.”

It’s not the first time Cain has spoken out on political issues that have angered those on the left. In July, Cain went on “Fox & Friends” to rip the new woke incarnation of Marvel Comics’ Captain America, blasting, “I am so tired of all of this wokeness and anti-Americanism.”

“I believe the pendulum will swing back to openly appreciating American values, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights,” he added.

The Daily Wire reported what Steve Rogers, also known as Captain America from the new comic, states of the American Dream:

Here’s the thing about a dream though. A dream isn’t real. When we wake up, it goes away. And we’re left with this yearning inside. Like something was taken from us. … Lately, spending my days in this country, as the years march on by — I’m starting to think America actually has two dreams. And one lie. … The first American Dream is the one that isn’t real. It’s the one some people expect to just be handed to them, and then get angry when it disappears, when the truth is, it never really existed in the first place.

Rogers continues: “This is the white picket fence fallacy that, if we’re not careful, becomes nationalism. Jingoism. That dream isn’t real. It never was. Because that dream doesn’t get along nicely with reality. Other cultures. Immigrants. The poor. The suffering. People easily come to be seen as ‘different’ or ‘unamerican.’ The white picket fence becomes a gate to keep others out.” He adds later that the “lie is a real problem because it comes in the form of an empty promise. A while back, we told the world they could come here for a better life. But too often we turn our backs on them. Instead of a dream, they get handed a raw deal.”

In October, Cain weighed in on the news that the new Superman, Jonathan Kent, is bisexual, accusing DC Comics of “bandwagoning” and suggesting comics companies could do more to shed a light on “real evil” in the world, like child trafficking, and women being oppressed and killed in Afghanistan.
