Trump sinks to name-calling in impeachment feud with Manchin

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A post-impeachment spat between President Donald Trump and U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin has sunk to name-calling and insults.

The moderate Democrat took to cable news Monday to defend himself after a weekend of back-and-forth that ignited when Trump criticized Manchin for voting to impeach him from office.

Manchin said Trump should act like a responsible adult after the president called him "Joe Munchkin" and said he was a puppet of the Democratic leadership.

Trump was acquitted by the Senate on Wednesday on charges that he abused his office.

Manchin said the evidence supported the charges against the president.
