WASHINGTON – Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) was loudly confronted by numerous Sunrise Movement climate change activists on Thursday morning. They greeted the West Virginia senator outside of his houseboat this morning and followed him to his Maserati, according to HuffPost’s Jennifer Bendery.
The activists were protesting his opposition to large portions of President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better agenda, including measures related to climate change. Manchin was heading toward a parking garage as a large group of protestors surrounded him chanting, “We want to live!”
The senator mostly ignored the crowd.
Then as Manchin attempted to leave the parking garage, protestors blocked his exit, prompting the senator to go in reverse. – MEDIAITE
