West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin continues to be a thorn in the side of his own Democrat party.
Of course, being a pain to the Democrats means the media doesn’t like you either.
And quite frankly, Senator Joe Manchin has had enough with the Democrat-controlled media, and you won’t believe what he’s doing now.
Democrats have been pushing for the formation of a commission to investigate the events of January 6 for months now.
Republicans knew the Democrats’ ultimate goal of the commission was to publish a report condemning everything that happened on that day and using it to campaign for their seats in the 2022 midterm election.
Not willing to be slandered over scenarios about January 6 that were conjured up in Leftist’s brains, Republicans filibustered the bill and stopped it in its tracks.
It has long been known, because he’s always been vocal about it, that Senator Joe Manchin opposes eliminating the filibuster even though his party is pushing for its demise.
Given that the Fake News Media is in the back pocket of the Democrat party, reporters from numerous liberal outlets have taken it upon themselves to hound Manchin over his opposition to killing the filibuster.
Well, Manchin has had enough and recently exploded at reporters wanting to know why they ask him the same question over and over again despite the fact that he’s repeatedly told them he would vote not to end the filibuster.
I asked Sen. Manchin if he'll change his mind on the filibuster for the 1/6 commission: "I don't think I'll ever change. I'm not separating our country ok? I don't know what you all don't understand about this. You ask the same question every day and it's wrong. That's enough."

Reporters, who no longer know how to actually report the news, continue to harass Manchin in hopes of him changing his stance so the Dems can slam through their radical agenda of gun control, amnesty, and legislation that tilts elections in their favor.
Democrats know they will never push these things through the Senate if they can’t get the 60 votes needed to break a Republican filibuster, and Manchin does not help their case.
There is no doubt the press has become the lobbying arm of the Democrat Party in this case and is trying to get Manchin to cave.
However, it looks like all the press is doing is infuriating the Senator more and causing him to dig his heels in even deeper.
And it seems like the Fake News Media piling it on and his Democrat colleagues putting him under more and more pressure is only causing Manchin to call out his so-called “allies.”
