Alleged moderate Senator Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., is going around on cable news Wednesday morning criticizing his fellow Democrats for refusing to stand during President Trump’s State of the Union address.
“I was very, very upset when I saw the Republicans never, ever stood up with Barack Obama, and there was things I didn’t agree about President Obama in his speech,” Manchin said on MSNBC, according to a report from the Washington Examiner.
“But I was taught in West Virginia there’s a little bit of respect, and you should show that. And I did that then, and I did it last night,” he added.
