Let the pandering begin: the leaders of the WV Trump Party get out their dog whistles to defend their party’s namesake
It’s all there: Soros-backed prosecutors, Stalin’s secret police, third world banana republic stuff, violent thugs roaming the streets, weaponizing the criminal code for political purposes, anarchy and corruption, political prosecution, a leftist Manhattan DA, and obviously, a gross miscarriage of justice
From WV District 2 Representative, Alex Mooney:

What has Senator Joe been doing?
For starters, he’s been sounding a lot like a Republican
West Virginia’s Democratic senator, Jo Manchin, was on CBS Face the Nation earlier today. Among other questions, he was asked about his own personal aspirations and whether he would endorse Biden:
