Why is Manchin going against his party? Because he actually tries to represent the people in WV, this ought to be a lesson for VA politicians and politicians around our country!
Democratic West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin not only stood up, applauded and smiled when President Donald Trump touted booming American energy production, but he also gave the president a wink of approval.
Manchin was one of the only Democrats to stand when Trump said: “the United States is now the number one producer of oil and natural gas in the world.” Manchin stood up in front of a group of female Democratic lawmakers who did not look thrilled.
Asked Joe Manchin why he stood when Trump called for a 20 week abortion ban: “Late term abortions are just horrific…totally just wrong.”

There could be no greater contrast to the beautiful image of a mother holding her infant child than the chilling displays our nation saw in recent days,” Trump said, pointing to the passage and introduction of extreme abortion legislation. Among those displays is “the case of the Governor of Virginia [who] … basically stated he would execute a baby after birth,” Trump continued, referring to comments Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam made on Jan. 30 appears to condone infanticide.
Manchin refused, however, to condemn Northam’s comments. “I haven’t seen anything. I’ve been in retreats. Obviously, I just got out of a meeting,” he said when asked for a reaction to Northam’s remarks.
“To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking the Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb,” Trump said.
His remarks refer to the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, introduced Monday by Nebraska Republican Sen. Ben Sasse. The bill would mandate that babies born in abortion clinics be immediately given medical attention and taken to the hospital.
He really did not owe any explanation. This is still a free country with no restrictions on standing up for what is right in the eyes of God. Thank you, Joe Manchin, for standing up against little babies being murdered.
