Joe Manchin is one of the last “blue dog” Democrats.
A moderate, who sticks out like a sore thumb in this radical communist party. I honestly don’t know why Manchin doesn’t flip over to a “Republican,” he must have some sweet “donor deals” greasing his pockets to stay registered as a D.
But I am not sure how much longer he can go on like this.
It’s gotten so bad that he’s now walking out on speeches being given by his party’s leadership.
That’s what happened on Thursday, during a speech Chuck Schumer gave on the increase of the debt ceiling, which several worthless RINO Republicans voted to increase.
Bizpacreview reported that Republicans were treated to a torrid rant from the floor of the chamber by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., with his partisan sniping drawing a dramatic show of frustration from a member of his own caucus, Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., who was seen burying his head into his hands. Manchin would eventually rise and walk away while Schumer continued to rail.
“In a few moments, the Senate will pass an extension of the debt limit, avoiding a first-ever Republican-manufactured default on the national debt,” Schumer said. “…Republicans played a dangerous and risky partisan game and I’m glad their brinksmanship did not work.”
He continued to go off on the GOP while calling for a long-term solution to address the debt limit, even as he said Democrats are “ready to work with them.”
“Leader McConnell and Senate Republicans insisted that they want a solution to the debt ceiling but said Democrats must raise it alone by going through a drawn out, convoluted and risky reconciliation process,” the majority leader said. “That was simply unacceptable to my caucus. And yesterday, Senate Republicans finally realized their obstruction was not going to work. I thank, very much thank my Democratic colleagues for showing our unity in solving this Republican manufactured crisis.”
This is the hottest shirt on the market right now! Let your fellow American Patriots know where you stand! FJB!!! Get your shirt HERE before they run out!!
It was at that point that you’ll see Manchin place his head in his hands, and eventually get up and walk out on the speech.

Here’s the full clip:
Later, Manchin discussed his frustration with the speech, saying that “Civility is gone.”
“I didn’t think it was appropriate at this time,” he said. “We have to de-weaponize. You can’t be playing politics. None of us can — on both sides. Both sides have been very guilty of this.”
Manchin tells us he didn’t like Schumer’s speech after the vote to break a filibuster on the debt ceiling. "I didn't think it was appropriate at this time," he said, arguing that "we need to de-weaponize" and stop "playing politics … That was not a way to take (frustration) out” pic.twitter.com/TsGDsMNAqK

Clearly, Manchin is a man who is deeply frustrated with the divisive politics that we’ve been dealing with for decades now.
This is nothing new. Is it more divisive now, than it was when President Trump was in office?
Probably, because Democrats are accelerators.
Everything has to keep getting higher and going faster, it’s the way they operate.
Manchin is caught in the middle and has nowhere to go – unless he changes his party affiliation.
