Several times a day liberals feel the need to remind us that they still hate Trump.

Then sometimes the moderate comes out and makes me puke.

Trump wants a Senate Democrat to vote for acquittal in impeachment trial. White House eyes Joe Manchin.

Trump took particular pride that three House Democrats voted against his impeachment, White House officials said, and he would like to be able to get at least one Senate Democrat to vote for his acquittal so he can claim the decision was bipartisan.

Manchin has sided with Trump on tough votes before, such as the confirmation of Supreme Court Brett M. Kavanaugh, but voting to acquit the president would be an even more politically charged decision, one that could help him maintain his reputation as a moderate back home but that would likely make him a pariah within his own party.
