Joe Manchin’s Christmas Present to America… a lump of Coal
I knew it… I knew it… I knew it! Damn!!!!! I wish I had been wrong!!!
In May of 2020, six months before the Presidential election, I predicted that if Trump lost he would refuse to accept the result and claim fraud. Much to my regret, I nailed that prediction.
In October of 2021 I offered another wacky theory. I said, “I am wondering if Joe Manchin is actually a Trojan Horse, a Republican disguised as a Democrat… planted in the Democratic party to make trouble when the opportunity presents itself.” DAMN IT!!!! I nailed it again!!! ARGH!!!!
From CNN: “Last year, he (Joe Manchin) made more than $491,000 from his Enersystems holdings (a coal company), the filings show. That’s more than twice his $174,000 annual Senate salary.”
Never mind that we are polluting the planet to death with fossil fuels. Never mind that he strung the democrats along for months suggesting he would agree to a moderate plan. Never mind that the democrats cut their Build Back Better plan in half to satisfy Joe. He needs to pay for that fancy yacht. And his coal buddies are yanking on his chain.
This time… Instead of a prediction… I’m not doin’ that again… I just can’t handle being right again with another one of my predictions. So this time, I propose we go full on to kick Joe Manchin out of the Senate. And while we are at it, let’s do the same to Kyrsten Sinema.
