The fight over Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination ended in one unbelievable way.
A top Democrat made a decision on whether he would oppose Kavanaugh or not.
And this tweet about his decision just ended his career.
Democrat Senator Exposed As A Fraud
West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin likes to pretend he is a conservative.
He says he’s pro-gun.
But back in 2013, Manchin wrote legislation to help Barack Obama create a national gun registration database.
Manchin also tells voters he’s pro-life.
But he voted to fund Planned Parenthood.
Manchin’s lies finally caught up with him in the Brett Kavanaugh fight.
He kept how he planned to vote close to the vest.
Manchin didn’t tell anyone until it was time to cast his vote.
And he voted “yes.”
However, it was a phony gesture.
Republicans already had the 50 votes necessary to break a Democrat filibuster.
Experts believe that Manchin never would have given Republicans the 50th vote to confirm Kavanaugh.
He only voted “yes” once he knew his vote was meaningless.
Donald Trump, Jr. Calls Out Manchin
Donald Trump, Jr. was not about to let Manchin get away with lying about his vote.
He blasted Manchin on twitter:
A real profile in courage from Lyin’ liberal @JoeManchinWV. Waited until Kavanaugh had enough votes secured before he announced his support. I bet he had another press release ready to go if Collins went the other way.
West Virginia – Vote for #MAGA champion @MorriseyWV! #WVSEN
Trump, Jr. couldn’t let Manchin escape any consequences for his two-faced behavior in this critical election year.
Manchin is locked in one of the toughest re-election battles in America.
Donald Trump won his state by 42 points.
Voters in West Virginia overwhelmingly said they wanted Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court.
West Virginia is a very red state and Manchin is their last statewide elected Democrat.
Manchin tried to use the Kavanaugh vote to save his hide.
Joe Manchin Feels The Heat
Manchin defended his vote in a statement writing, “Based on all of the information I have available to me, including the recently completed FBI report, I have found Judge Kavanaugh to be a qualified jurist who will follow the Constitution and determine cases based on the legal findings before him.”
But no one bought what he tried to sell.
Americans have seen Manchin play this tune before.
His re-election race is so close because voters know he is a Chuck Schumer clone.
Polls show Manchin and Morrisey locked in a tight race.
Even though pundits predict a blue wave, he knows better.
Voters in West Virginia want a pro-life, pro-gun Senator who supports Donald Trump’s conservative Supreme Court choices.
Joe Manchin turned his back on voters too many times for anyone to count on him.
And you can expect President Trump to campaign against Manchin because he needs a conservative Senator he knows will help pass his Make America Great Again agenda.
