Support The Show On Patreon!: Subscribe to Krystal Kyle & Friends On Substack!: Republican billionaire Ken Langone says he plans to host a fundraiser for Sen. Joe Manchin after the conservative West Virginia Democrat blocked key elements of President Joe Biden’s agenda. The comments came as Democrats in Congress continue to hash out major parts of Biden’s economic agenda, namely social safety net spending and plans to battle climate change. Langone, in an interview Wednesday on CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” praised Manchin for his “guts and courage” and explained that he was set to raise money for him. Manchin is up for reelection in 2024. “I don’t see leadership any place in this country. Thank God for Joe Manchin,” Langone said. “I’m going to have one of the biggest fundraisers I’ve ever had for him. He’s special. He’s precious. He’s a great American,” he added. Langone has never contributed to one of Manchin’s campaigns, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. Manchin’s office did not return a request for comment on Langone’s statements. After publication of this story, Manchin tweeted out a statement on Wednesday’s inflation report that echoed what Langone had said on CNBC. Follow Kyle on Twitter: #KyleKulinski #SecularTalk
