‘The Evidence Is Overwhelming’: Manchin Says Trump 'Absolutely' Incited Insurrection
This man is worthless as a politician and needs to be voted out of office when he comes up for re-election in 2024. He has no spine and changes his opinion depending on his audience at the time. He's been labeled "a great pretender" and "The Harry Houdini of West Virginia Politics". He is FOR everything and AGAINST everything at the same time; the proverbial "neither hot nor cold" candidate. He stands for nothing so he falls for everything. In President Donald Trump's first impeachment, Manchin voted FOR one of the charges against the President and AGAINST the other charge. He is always on the fencepost, inconsistent, spinless and, regardless of your opinion, has been in the senate far too long as most of the senate members. If you are serious and actually want to make change in government, DON'T Re-Elect ANY politician, especially this one.
In 2018, Manchin's daughter, was indicted for the Epi-Pen FRAUD in 2018 that jacked up Epi-Pens price 600% from $100 to $600, putting the health of millions at risk for emergency treatment of allergic reactions. Manchin, himself, received campaign cash from his daughter's company which begs the question of Manchin's personal involvement in the Epi-Pen scandal.
Manchin's uncle, A. James Manchin, was impeached for incompetence and negligence in office and had to resign.
After an interview with FOX News' Bret Baier in November, 2020, it was stated "Manchin is an adroit politician who straddles the great divide between the politics, policies, and personae of the Democratic Party and the views of his constituents. He is a great pretender."
Manchin identifies as "pro-life" but on March 30, 2017, Manchin expressed support for abortion rights by voting against H.J.Res. 43, a bill to allow states to withhold money from abortion providers.
In 2018, Gayle Manchin, the wife of Sen. Joe Manchin (D., W.V.), was fired from her position as secretary of the West Virginia Department of Education and the Arts on Monday after she attempted to push back against action by the state legislature to eliminate her agency. Manchin's wife was appointed to the position by her husband, then Governor Manchin in 2007.
Labeled as "The Harry Houdini of West Virginia Politics", Manchin stumbled and manipulated his way up the political ladder with scandals as governor (federal investigation into his adminstration for possible financial wrongdoing) and the WV University with false claims of a master's degree by his daughter as well as his ascension to Robert Byrd's vacant seat in the U.S. Senate.
During his 2018 re-election campaign, Less Than 2% ($7,900) of Joe Manchin's Campaign Donations Came From West Virginia. 98%, of the $550,000, came from a group of registered government (special interest) lobbyists. This is a tactic of politicians and lobbyists with the politician promising to give favors to the interests of the lobbyists.
