Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) said during the Texas Tribune Festival this week that it would be a danger to reelect former President Donald Trump and that the Republican Party is sliding towards an “autocracy.”
Manchin spoke with Evan Smith, the cofounder and senior adviser for the Texas Tribune, about why he has not flirted with becoming a Republican as he continues to ponder if he should run for reelection or run for president as an independent.
After giving his critique of the Democrat party, he said that he has many dear friends in the Republican Party; however, he lamented the GOP is becoming “drawn” to Trump and “engulfed” in his and the Make America Great Again (MAGA) movement.

Move to California and die Manchin
Uno reversi on that one. You don’t get to act like autocrats and blame Trump.
Democracy dies with Democrats.
Well put your name on the No Labels ballot and join the race to beat him if he’s so dangerous.
If this punk runs as an “Independent” would he hurt DJT or the Rat nominee more?
Must be channeling his inner Yeb/Pence/Rmoney/Liz.
This is what passes for a moderate, nowadays.
all you have ever done is run your mouth and actually have never done anything except run your mouth. You are an attention whore.
The follow-up that is never asked if there anti-American frauds is, “In what regard? Where are the examples of autocratic behavior. Show us the receipts”.
Why yes it would be dangerous to the corrupt career politicians and other swamp things like Trader Joe there. He might have to get a real job and stop selling his vote to the highest bidder
I don’t want “moderates”, I don’t want “far” or “extreme” anything in an elected official, merely one that understands, respects, and adheres to our charter of government.
and WTF is the Democratic party your F’n twit? It’s a dick-tatorship
It Would Be a Danger Not to Reelect Trump.
Nobody in the the run have done anything as good as Trump has they have a shallow record.
If an independent is elected it’s a wasted vote they will get heat from both sides zero gain we will be stuck where we are at now.
It’s the LAST chance for the fools to wise up.
Wait a minute! Punks have more class than this fool! Must be the water that they drink in West Virginnie?
My guess is that an independent Manchin run would knock the wind out of any prog Rat candidate, particularly if that ‘Rat is Jao Beidan. Would take a few away from President Trump, but the damage to the ‘Rat would be brutal.
Oh also remember when Trump’s presidency was sabotaged by a fake Russian collusion narrative?
Remember when he was impeached for questioning Hunter and Joe Biden’s efforts to fire a Ukrainian investigator?
Remember when Trump had his home raided by the FBI and photos taken of documents in an obvious theater meant to portray his slovenly leaving them “lying around” in his mansion?
Remember when he was falsely prosecuted for federal crimes not in federal jurisdictions?
Remember when Trump Organization was recently declared defunct?
These are just a few examples where the state has been the authoritarian actors.
