Democrat Senator Joe Manchin just slammed Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on his effort at bullying him into voting against Trump’s Supreme Court Justice nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Schumer knows Manchin has a history of voting with Republicans and is a free thinker who tends to support President Trump’s policies. It doesn’t hurt that Manchin is a red state Democrat who is up for reelection in the 2018 midterms. Manchin is still a rarity  in the world of Washington politics these days.

Senator Manchin told Schumer he has no power over his vote:

“I’ll be 71-years-old in August; you’re going to whip me? Kiss my you know what.”

Remember that immediately after President  Trump announced Judge Kavanaugh as his pick for the Supreme Court, drama queen Schumer released a statement saying, “I will oppose Kavanaugh’s nomination with everything I have”…EVERYTHING I HAVE? REALLY?

Breitbart reports:

Senate Democrats would need at least two Republican votes to block Trump’s Supreme Court pick, but some Democrats are still undecided about whether to oppose Kavanaugh without fully reviewing his credentials.

Some red state Democrats still on the fence about whether to oppose Kavanaugh, such as Manchin and Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN), cited the need to balance supporting their party and ensuring their chances at re-election. Both Manchin and Donnelly are up for re-election in the 2018 midterms.

“My decision won’t have anything to do with Chuck Schumer,” Donnelly told Politico.

The red state Democrat senators’ indecision on Kavanaugh has caused a civil war within the Democratic Party, especially among far left-wing advocacy groups, over how to oppose Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.
