Democrats have been trying with all their might to coerce Joe Manchin to obey them. But the moderate Democrat from West Virginia has refused to bend the knee. He has repeatedly called out the far left’s extreme agenda, making it clear he will not support it.
But the left won’t let up. And they have an ally in the liberal media. It seems many MSM outlets are trying to pressure Joe Manchin as well. They seem to be trying to get him to comply through badgering and scolding. It seems, however, Manchin has had enough. And he read the media the riot act.
From Red State:
‘This is b******t. You’re b******t,’ the West Virginia senator yelled at Arthur Delaney, a reporter for HuffPost Politics…
‘I’m done, I’m done,’ Manchin fumed as the questions continued.
‘Guys, I’m not negotiating with any of you all. You can ask all the questions you want. Guys, let me go,’ he told the press as he walked through the basement of the Capitol, muttering ‘God almighty’ as he walked away.
Joe Manchin is known for his calm demeanor and genteel responses to the media. But the hounds of the MSM would not let up. After activists harassed him in a parking garage and his home, after the media slandered him and bullies him, Manchin had enough. He reported blasted one HuffPost reporter, cursing him out.
After shouting “I’m done, I’m done,” Manchin marched away. He reminded the media that he was not negotiating with any of them and left them in the dust. While this response might come as a surprise to many of us, we have to realize how far over the line the media has crossed.
The MSM, for the most part, is no longer a neutral entity reporting on the news. They have become, for all intents and purposes, an arm of the Democratic Party. And because the party has been overrun by progressives, the media is determined to prop up and support their socialist agenda.
They are even willing to bully and badger members of their own party, who refuse to comply. Joe Manchin is a respected senator and accomplished leader. Yet the media treated him like a child, trying to scold him into a corner.
His outburst reveals the brewing tensions being felt by many Democrats. Other moderates are sick and tired of the far left calling the shots. They are watching as their seats are lost to more and more Republicans, as voters reject progressives extremist agenda.
We shouldn’t be surprised that Manchin reacted this way. Now, if only Congress does the same to Joe Biden.
- Joe Manchin reportedly blasted reporters over their constant pressure.
- The Democrat cursed out a reporter who tried to get an answer on negotiations.
- The media has tried to coerce Manchin into supporting Biden’s far-left agenda.
