“Manchin made the announcement “Fox News Sunday.” Prior to going on the air, he had an aide tell the White House that he was going to tell the nation he would not vote for the Biden spending bonanza in any shape, size, or form. Then came panic,” Politico originally reported.
“We tried to head him off,” the outlet quoted what it described as “a senior White House official” as saying.
Manchin “refused to take a call from White House staff,” Politico quoted the official as saying.
“So when you have these things coming at you the way they are right now, I’ve always said this, Bret: If I can’t go home and explain it to the people of West Virginia, I can’t vote for it,” Manchin said. “And I cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation. I just can’t. I’ve tried everything humanly possible. I can’t get there.”
Baier, a little aback with what was taking place, had to make sure.
“You’re done? This is — this is a no?”
“This is a no, on this legislation,” Manchin said. “I have tried everything I know to do.”
Even Dems turn their backs on the slimy Joe.
