Democrat Senator Joe Manchin has warned President Joe Biden that he represents the voters of West Virginia, not the White House.
Sen. Manchin used both barrels when he blasted back at Biden for the slanderous slurs the White House has been maligning him with for days.
“They figured surely to God we can move one person,” the senator said.
“We surely can badger and beat one person up.
“Surely we can get enough protesters to make that person uncomfortable enough that they’ll just say, ‘OK, I’ll vote for anything.’”
“Well, guess what? I’m from West Virginia,” Manchin declared.
“I’m not from where they’re from and they can just beat the living crap out of people and think they’ll be submissive, period.”
Manchin took to the airwaves on Sunday, December 19, right after he made the announcement “that he will not vote for Biden’s spending and climate agenda.”
After months of relentless hammering to get him to see the light, Manchin confirmed that his vote for Biden’s “Build Back Better” was a “no.”
Shortly after Manchin confirmed his vote, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki accused the senator of breaking a promise to the Biden administration.
“Senator Manchin promised to continue conversations in the days ahead, and to work with us to reach that common ground.”
However, the talks had broke down.
In his response, Manchin chuckled “I figured they would come back strong.”
The White House, according to Manchin, “leaked negative information about him and that had poisoned his efforts to reach a good-faith compromise.”
“They know the real reason, what happened,” the senator said.
“It’s staff-driven. I understand it’s staff. It is not the president.
“This is staff. And they drove some things, and they put some things out, that were absolutely inexcusable.
“They know what it is.”
