It is one of those swamp mysteries that someday may actually be solved. Why is Senator Joe Manchin from West Virginia still a Democrat?
It certainly is not due to his stance on killing children in the womb. Manchin is as pro-life as most Republicans on the matter. And that being the case, on Tuesday evening, at the State of the Union Address, when President Donald Trump began talking of the horrific state abortion laws currently being pushed and passed, Manchin stood to applaud his statements.
Manchin said he was struck by the photo he saw taken of him standing during the speech & AOC “Well, I could hear the boos a little bit I didn't know if the boos were for the president or for me standing, I wasn't sure. But I could sure feel the daggers.”https://t.co/GMVHx6m2S6 pic.twitter.com/0qv0wjBsHv

Manchin’s fellow Democrats did not receive his actions well.
Speaking to high school students at West Virginia’s Webster County High School on Wednesday, Manchin revealed that he could hear boos behind him when he stood up to applaud the president, though he was unsure if they were directed at him or Trump, and could “feel the daggers,” especially when he had the gall to applaud Trump’s call to end gruesome late-term abortion.
The most “controversial thing I applauded,” said Manchin, according to The Washington Examiner, were pro-life statements. “Well, there’s just no way that I could ever. I mean how anybody could support late-term abortions?”…
“Late-term abortions, my goodness. It would have to be a dire medical situation,” continued Manchin, adding that full-term abortion bills supported by prominent Democrats are “just totally unconscionable to me.”
That is a good question. How could anyone justify killing a child at nine months in the womb when it could well live outside of its mother, and when delivering the child by Caesarian Section in case of emergency would save the life of the mother and the child in less than an hour. Prominent physicians in the Obstetrics profession assure the public that this is the case.
And the Democrats booed the sentiment that there is nothing more beautiful than a mother holding her child, and more horrific than a mother having her child killed.
This is the America the Nancy Pelosi’s of this world want for us.
