Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) was within arm's length of a climate protester who called him a "sick f**k" on Friday when former longtime Manchin adviser Jonathan Kott shoved the insulting man sharply out of the room.

The protester, part of a group called Climate Defiance that took credit for the protest, preceded his epithet with the statement that Manchin "sold our futures," ostensibly referencing his support for fossil fuels.

Other protesters locked arms near where Manchin sat and chanted, “Support our futures, not your profits.”

“Y’all want to sit down somewhere so we can talk?” Manchin tried, but the protesters refused.

You’ve made millions out of your position. You drive a Maserati,” another protester chimed in.

While these protesters obviously believe all the global warming propaganda the left has been shoveling their way for decades, Manchin is not doing anything wrong by developing the resources his state has and providing energy to people who need it.
