Sen. Joe Manchin (D.,W.Va.) said that he has had more personal time with President Donald Trump than he ever did with former President Barack Obama.
"I’ve had more personal time with Trump in two months than I had with [Barack] Obama in eight years," Manchin said.
Manchin told Politico that he could call Trump at anytime and Trump himself would be the one to answer the phone. Manchin called it the "damnedest thing" he's ever seen in his life.
One fellow Democratic senator warned progressives about challenging red-state Democrats like Manchin.
"If you want to have a Democratic Party in places like West Virginia, you have to be happy about somebody like Joe Manchin, right?" Sen. Chris Murphy (D., Conn.) said.
But will the vast majority of Dems/Progs listen to Murphy? Do they remember how they lost the South? Nope, and nope.
