Watch: Frustrated Joe Manchin Says "This Is Crazy" As Schumer Celebrates Debt Limit Deal

|

Sen. Joe Manchin appeared to say, "This is crazy," while Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer celebrated a short-term debt limit hike on Thursday night.

Manchin shook his head, put his face in his hands, and eventually got up and walked away while Schumer was speaking.

Manchin told reporters as he was leaving the Capitol: "We have to de-weaponize. We can't be playing politics... The frustration was built, but that was not a way to take it out. I would have done it differently... You can fight about a lot of things, but not about [the debt ceiling]. This is the most serious thing we do. And we're not going to do it anymore... We will not default and we will not go through this again."
