could endorse his reelection.

Joe Manchin thinks President Donald Trump abused his power and voted to remove him from office. But he also thinks Trump can still be a “tremendous president” and is eager to reconcile. The West Virginia Democratic senator surprised his Republican colleagues by denying Trump a bipartisan acquittal last week. But he can’t quit Trump entirely — and is even open to supporting Trump’s re-election campaign. “I don’t rule anything out. I really don’t rule anything out,” Manchin said

I voted for disenfranchising the voters of West Virginia before I voted against it? When they vote Democrat to give him his position, that matters... It's far too sacred to be cut short by partisan politics. The Flop comes very quickly after the Flip.

Manchin has not given Trump any votes. Manchin should not be endorsed by Trump, which will end Manchin in W. Va., a great outcome. Manchin, you chose your fate, now it is time to for your Senate career to end.

Eager to reconcile? Of course he is - he wants to keep his sinecure job. He’s probably getting a lot of backlash from his red home state.

And Manchin got a law passed that every school in the country had to buy the epipens his daughter was making a fortune from. On top of that the daughter lied about her education degrees from the U of WVa and the university backed her up. Then some smart (that's amazing in itself) reporter checked and she did not have the degree she claimed and instead of her losing her job the university president lost his.

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg has already poured hundreds of millions of dollars into his last-minute presidential bid, but the 2020 Democratic hopeful once described multimillion-dollar ad campaigns as "obscene" spending that would "annoy people."Bloomberg dismissed 2001 reports that he would spend upward of $30 million on his initial run for mayor in New York City. "At some point, you start to look obscene," Bloomberg told New York magazine. "There's a limited amount of ad time you can buy. It becomes dysfunctional; you annoy people with ads." Bloomberg went on to spend $73 million on his mayoral campaign, outspending his Democratic challenger Mark Green five-to-one.
