West Virginia Senator, like Bill wants Hillary no where near him
West Virginia Senator is like Slick Willy. He wants Hillary nowhere near him. Democrat Joe Manchin wants Hillary Clinton to stay out of West Virginia as he vies for re-election
Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, who is up for re-election in 2018, said it “wouldn’t be wise” for Hillary Clinton to campaign for him in his home state of West Virginia.
He was asked during an interview that aired Sunday on MSNBC’s “Kasie DC,” if he was a “dead man walking” after President Trump won West Virginia by a wide margin in the 2016 presidential contest.
“I sure don’t think so,” he replied, listing off his prior political posts in the state and saying of himself, “I’m just West Virginia, period. It’s not Democrat, Republican to me.”
Asked if he’d like Clinton to campaign for him, Manchin immediately derided the notion.
“It wouldn’t be wise for Hillary to come to West Virginia. It wouldn’t be a good thing for her or for me,” he replied. The West Virginia Senator is much like Bill Clinton, he wants Hillary nowhere near him.
Manchin maintained that he and the Clinton’s are friends, but seemed to indicate that comments Clinton made about coal country, in which West Virginia is the heart, during the 2016 campaign were irreconcilable with his political prospects in the state.
He said her comments were “very harmful and very hard to justify or say. She made a big mistake and it was wrong.”
In March 2016, Clinton said, “we’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business” if she was elected president. Clinton, who pitched $30 billion program to revitalize the region that had been hemorrhaging thousands of mining jobs by helping it transition to renewable energy development, later said that comment was a “misstatement” after being confronted by a laid-off coal miner at a West Virginia campaign stop.
Manchin supported and campaigned for Clinton during her campaign, but said at the time that her remarks were “horrible.”
The West Virginia Senator Manchin is typical politician. He wants his cake and to eat it too. He knows Hillary Clinton is cancer to his re-election bid. But he also knows crooked Hillary and Slick Willy are able to steal massive amounts of money that can help him. So he has to say they are friends even though he wants them nowhere near him. Who would want that witch and her sleazeball husband around them?
