Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia appeared on CNN with Jake Tapper this weekend and defended President Trump, saying that people from New York speak differently than people from other parts of the country.
That’s an idea many people from New York would probably agree with.
Jake Tapper asked Manchin of he thinks the president obstructed justice and he responded:
“I have not gone down that road, nor am I going to go down that road. I believe in the rule of law and it pertains to all of us”

Manchin went on to criticize Nancy Pelosi for her rhetoric. From the Daily Caller:
Democratic Senator Joe Manchin told House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to stop her divisive rhetoric on immigration and work with the Republican party, Sunday on CNN’s “State of The Union.”
Host Jake Tapper played a clip of Pelsoi claiming President Donald Trump’s immigration plan seeks to “make America white again,” and then asked Manchin what he thought of the quote.
“You know what, we don’t need that type of rhetoric on either side. From Nancy, Paul Ryan or anybody else” said Manchin, of West Virginia. “We have the wall. We need to repair the wall. We’ll need to build more wall. We need to do whatever we can to secure the borders.”
