There’s a saying that goes “when you’ve been a righteous man, you cannot outplay your conscience.”
I’m not saying Joe Manchin is righteous…lol, But he has all the chances to jump into Republicans but he chooses to stay to this rotten Democratic cult.
Maybe because he still has some sweet “donor deals” greasing his pockets to stay registered as a D. After all, he has been considered to be the last “blue dog” Democrats.
But certainly, he won’t be staying longer 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.
Excerpt from Bizpacreview reports:
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.
Schumer said in a statement, “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 and Republicans played a dangerous and risky partisan game and I’m glad their brinksmanship did not work.”
The most pretentious act I’ve ever seen live.
“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, and 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.” Schumer added.
Watch how Manchin places his head in his hands, and eventually gets up and walks out on the speech.

Manu Raju was able to get Machin’s statement of him, walking out.
“Civility is gone, I didn’t think it was appropriate at this time and 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 said while walking out.
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

Can this be an end for his Democratic party career? I won’t be surprised if he switched to being a Republican.
