Manchin's GASLIGHTING Laughably False claim of Schumer's speech as "uncivil" means only 1 thing

he has already decided to switch parties and this is part of his phony, dog-and-pony-show "foundation" and excuse for doing so.

These people are so painfully transparent. This is so clearly a little plan gleefully crafted in Mitch's office.

And Jake Sherman and the media are playing right along.

Schumer gave a 30 SECOND long speech, that was sober, accurate, without profanity, professional and restrained.

then Manchin started SHRIEKING that it was "fucking stupid" and uncivil. THIS IS GASLIGHTING. DUMB TRANSPARENT GASLIGHTING.

Meanwhile Madison Cawthorne. Meanwhile MTG. Meanwhile Boebert. Meanwhile Little Marco tweeting about communists and marxists (pretty much the same for every single GOP Senator). None of them admonished by Manchin or Romney as uncivil.

Now the only question is - when does the announcement come.

1. You know, he could have just as much fun joining the

Republican Party and threatening THEM to vote with DEMS occasionally since itís how he gets his jollies. We donít like him anymore.

7. if he switches parties he becomes a one day story...

...and there's no way he'll get re-elected in his state...the Democrats will turn against him and the Republicans will run a Trump ass-kisser and win...and Manchin becomes a punchline...for a guy who loves the attention and the bright lights that's not going to happen...

4. Manchin's #1 job is to represent the fossil fuel industry. He will do all he can to undercut a

progressive agenda and those who promote it. The masks are coming off as climate change worsens and the days of more study is needed on the issue no longer works.

5. But why?

If he switches parties, he's just going to get primaried and then beaten by a more republican Republican.

8. Simena will immediately follow.

They know if this flies they will be senators for life, easy-peasey.

10. Sinema's days are numbered as well.

Her distaste for her constituents, for whom she has yet to be accountable to, want her out.

Nor would she be welcomed into the GOP, as she is also a member of the LGBTQ community. And we all know how they feel. Not even the Log Cabiners are welcomed at C-PAC to speak.

All the GOP would want from Sinema are her votes against progressive issues, even the ones on LGBTQ rights.
