VIDEO: Joe Manchin Blasts Harry Reid Again, Says He Makes The Senate “Miserable”

The war of words between outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) continued this morning.

Now Manchin is looking to get the last word. Speaking with NBC’s Chuck Todd, Manchin blasted Reid’s management of the Democratic caucus, saying he’d made Manchin’s time in the Senate “miserable”:

Manchin went on to say that “a lot of other Senators have been miserable and I’m being brutally honest.” Manchin was obviously not trying to be subtle about his digs at Reid either. After all, he was quick to say that he hoped incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) would “change and give us that new spark that we need.”
