Manchin isn’t up for re-election until the end of President Trump’s second term in office.

-5 ( +1 / -6 )

“I expect every American, and myself, would like my president and our president to act like a responsible adult, and he's not,”

Didn't Trump once say he was going to 'be so presidential'? Or was that just another of his 15,000 (and counting) lies.

Trump was acquitted by the Senate on Wednesday

However, he was impeached. History books will show an asterisk by his name denoting he was impeached.

“I expect every American, and myself, would like my president and our president to act like a responsible adult, and he's not,” Manchin told CNN

Also Manchin: “Well, first of all, the munchkin — I'm taller than him, I think I'm a little bigger than he is, not heavier, he's much heavier than me but I'm a little taller than him so I guess he's got that a little bit off,”

What was that about acting like a responsible adult? Guy's a clown.

*However, he was impeached. History books will show an asterisk by his name denoting he was impeached.*

However, he was acquitted. History books will show an asterisk by his name denoting he was acquitted.

My favorite verb was.

The tyrant demands fealty and those who dare speak out will suffer his vengeance. But fear not. Eventually he will fall, as all dictators are wont to do.

Your favourite verb was what?

What? Ok, well...anyhoo...2024 and then the Socialist liberals can try again, maybe they might have better luck.

I’m disappointed in Manchin. He did a poor job representing his constituents. If he had been up for re-election he would have voted differently.

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

the Socialist liberals can try again,

When will the far left socialist Manchin understand that he serves at the pleasure of this president?

All hail Trump!

He serves at the pleasure of his constituents- who overwhelmingly voted for Trump.

Well, the impeachment farce is over so no need to look back.

-5 ( +2 / -7 )

He serves at the pleasure of his constituents- who overwhelmingly voted for Trump.

Ergo, any member of congress from a red state who defies Trump in any way must be purged.

The people of West Virginia know who their true Lord and Savior is.

Save us from our better judgment, Trump!

He is there to represent the people of his state. Not to just decide what Joe Manchin wants. Same goes for Romney. Elected by the people to do business on their behalf.

that’s how representative form of government works.

-4 ( +1 / -5 )

He was acquitted. Sorry.

-6 ( +1 / -7 )

Trump was the third only impeached president and that will follow him into the history books and uni courses and can never be erased.

1 ( +2 / -1 )

However, he was impeached. History books will show an asterisk by his name denoting he was impeached.

However, he was acquitted. History books will show an asterisk by his name denoting he was acquitted.

However, he is an self-admitted pervert so History books will show an asterisk by his name denoting that he was (and is) a "perv"...

Mr IAP...

2 ( +4 / -2 )

He was acquitted. Sorry.

Remember that time Hillary was never even charged, and you guys screamed "lock her up"?

Remember those times Trump is clearly guilty as sin, and you guys pretend he didn't do anything wrong?

Remember why we can't have honest discussions with you?

3 ( +5 / -2 )

Where you been? It’s over. The President was “acquitted” for life.

So you agree that Hillary was completely innocent then as well, right?

Oh wait, no you don't. Your ethics aren't on what is right or wrong, but rather whom you are talking about.

Next.

The term Socialist liberals is an oxymoron, used by people who don't have a grasp of politics.

1 ( +2 / -1 )

Trump was the third only impeached president and that will follow him into the history books and uni courses and can never be erased.

As will the fact that transparency was obstructed by Trump and the Republicans. The history books will always point out how it was a sham and that it was clear he was guilty.

I mean we're dealing with some people who truly believe, not just faking it, but truly believe that Trump is working in their best interests.

It's not like we're dealing with the sharpest tools in the shed.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

Because the President is not a state senator. Geez...

and he was acquitted and your new attempt at a catchphrase is horrible. He was impeached once, which is not “a lot”. He was also acquitted the same number of times, once. 1-1=0.

And yet when we are talking about Sir Impeached-a-lot, you come up with ten reasons why he doesn't need to represent half of America, and why he does get to just decide what he wants.

-3 ( +1 / -4 )

And here comes Hillary again. the desperation to get the topic shut down. Hillary was not acquitted, Trump was.

So you agree that Hillary was completely innocent then as well, right?

-5 ( +1 / -6 )

No because history is written by the winners. Not by partisan whiners. He was acquitted. Bottom line fact. Even your favorite liberal media put it on the top of the page for you in big bold letters. trump ACQUITTED it read.

The history books will always point out how it was a sham and that it was clear he was guilty.

-4 ( +1 / -5 )

And here comes Hillary again.

You people are going to try to lecture us on bringing up Hillary more?

Srsly? You people?

And you wonder why we can't have honest discussions.

1 ( +4 / -3 )

He was acquitted.

Heh, it's cute that you think he was really acquitted with the sham "trial".

When one team obstructs the evidence, he wasn't acquitted. Sorry. Don't expect the rest of us are going to suddenly ascribe to this ridiculous delusion.

I don’t think about the woman, she never and will never be President.

The term Socialist liberals is an oxymoron, used by people who don't have a grasp of politics.

Socialists liberals throughout history always have said that ,

-4 ( +1 / -5 )

Hillary was not acquitted, Trump was.

Um yeah, duh, because 97 investigations couldn't even get enough to put forth a charge for her to be acquitted of.

And you people yelled lock her up for years. Then try to claim Trump is somehow innocent even though there was only a sham of an investigation into him, during which your team made sure any evidence was not allowed to be stated.

And you wonder why we can't have honest discussions.

Clueless Republicans have always said that.

Remember that time, the morons had a sham trial, and were so delusional they thought the world would somehow accept that as an acquittal?

Heh, it's cute that you think he was really acquitted with the sham "trial".

Cute?? It’s in the documented records, can’t change it. Ask Chief Justice Roberts, his signature is on the form.

When one team obstructs the evidence,

When one team gathers the flimsiest of evidence.

he wasn't acquitted.

And Elvis is alive and George Soros is the POTUS.

Clueless Republicans have always said that.

And still winning.....by the way, where is Schiff? ROFL!

Unlike Trump, Hillary Clinton was never charged with a crime. Unlike Trump, Hillary Clinton never committed adultery with a porn star while her pregnant partner was at home.

Yep - news all over the world reported it, and it clearly showed Trump is guilty. You didn't think a sham of a trial was going to erase the documented records did you?

Ask Chief Justice Roberts, his signature is on the form.

Hehe, it's cute that you think that we're going to suddenly pretend Sir Impeached-a-lot isn't guilty, as if we're Republican reality deniers or something!

Unlike Trump, Hillary Clinton was never charged with a crime.

Neither was Trump, not under oath, never convicted and was acquitted, that’s for life. Freeeeeedom! And now liberals get to partake in that celebration for 4 more years.

Unlike Trump, Hillary Clinton never committed adultery with a porn star while her pregnant partner was at home.

Unlike Trump, she will never, ever, ever be President of the US.

Neither was Trump

Um yes he was, he was impeached.

no matter how many times you people want to overturn the democratic impeachment of a criminal and pretend otherwise, there it is.

Let me check again. Yep still acquitted. Might have to provide daily updates until some of you catch up to facts.

We’ve accepted that Donny was acquitted in a show trial conducted by the biased GOP. Have you accepted that Donny corrupted the office of the president?

Roger Stone was convicted.

Trump was charged with impeachment. Historical eternal fact.

Hillary was never charged with a single crime.

Trump was charged with impeachment. Historical eternal fact.

Trump was acquitted of charges of “abuse of power and obstruction.” Historical eternal fact.

Hillary was never charged with a single crime.

Hillary will always be the woman that failed to get the presidency twice. Lol
