Old and out-of-touch, #Feinstein struggles to remain relevant

Her brain, hobbled by old age, remains stuck in the 1970’s.

As U.S. Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch faces his Senate confirmation hearings, Sen. Dianne Feinstein , D-Calif., is labeling him an extremist on such issues as worker protections and reproductive rights.

The Senate Judiciary Committee, on which Feinstein is the highest-ranking Democrat, begins hearings Monday on Trump’s nomination of Gorsuch to succeed the late Justice Antonin Scalia. The Republican-controlled Senate refused last year to consider President Barack Obama’s nomination of appeals court Judge Merrick Garland to succeed Scalia, who died in February 2016.

Feinstein’s office criticized him for his hostility to the Supreme Court’s doctrine of deferring to government agencies’ interpretations of unclear federal laws. He has called the doctrine a violation of the constitutional separation of powers.

She rants that Gorsuch could also further weaken the tottering government regulations of political campaign financing. In a 2014 opinion, he called the act of contributing to campaigns “a basic constitutional freedom” entitled to the highest level of constitutional protection.

Dianne Feinstein is a dinosaur. She and her husband have made millions thanks to the high office she has held for decades. She would serve California best by going home. California voters deserve better.

  1. She’s a very old woman who is still struck in the 70’s as the article mentions. She is babbling old democrat talking points which are no longer relevant and she AND McCain are the textbook examples of WHY we need term limits. Judge Gorsuch will be a shoe in and the Dem’s know it.
