Liberal mag: Dianne Feinstein is suffering from cognitive decline

For those of us who watched the Kavanaugh hearings, it was evident that senior Democrat Dianne Feinstein was not well. Now, what was a closely guarded secret in DC is now out in the open.

Fox reports:

New Yorker staffer writer Jane Mayer published a story Thursday citing people familiar with Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein‘s current situation saying her apparent cognitive decline has been “evident for several years.”

Those familiar with the senator’s current state told the New Yorker that Feinstein, 87, has been “seriously struggling” and that her short-term memory “has grown so poor that she often forgets she has been briefed on a topic, accusing her staff of failing to do so just after they have.”

First, we have to emphasize that no one should be crowing over Feinstein’s decline. Anyone that has had a family member suffer from dementia or Alzheimers knows that it’s a tragic situation for the victim and the family. We wish Senator Feinstein all the best.

It’s equally true, that the 87-year-old’s condition emphasizes the term for congressional term limits. DC politicians frequently serve for decades and begin to view their seat as a birthright.

Is it any wonder that we’ve seen so many politicians afflicted by cognitive decline or other crippling maladies while they’re supposed to be responsible for some of the most crucial leadership positions in our Republic? The late Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Democratic candidate Joe Biden also come to mind.

This situation is unacceptable. One of the prerequisites for being in a position of public service is the ability to do the job. It is both irresponsible and inhumane to allow politicians to hold office when they are no longer in full possession of their faculties.

      1. She is from California. So someone from there has to be voted in to fill her seat once she leaves. That’s will be biggest obstacle for the GOP when that happens.

  1. Her cognitive decline began the moment she decided that she knew what was best for other people. Caveat: do no usurp the ability to choose from others.

  2. Neither are they surprised, shocked or twisted in any way. If anyone has been paying attention over the past 10 years she should have been removed from politics long ago!!!!! No different than the attempted ruse the democrats and the left is currently working with biden against ALL AMERICA!!! WAKE UP AMERICA!!!!!

  3. Big Deal – so is Pelosi
    And most IMPORTANTLY SO IS!!!!!!
    Good job America if u voted this IMBECILE INTO OFFICE

  4. I’am sorry for her as I would be for anyone. If she resigns what does it matter. Newsom will appoint another idiot dem to replace her.

  5. The public tends to blame the politician for “hanging on”. Better to realize the voters of their district or State are lacking judgement.
    Or as see now, the electronic vote counting has usurped the likely better judgement of the public/citizens.

  6. No one should be in any of them position at age 87. There are to many in office that need to go now. Term limits are a MUST.
    2 terms and it’s GTFO with 0 benefit.
    Just like teleprompter joe biden’s fraudulent “win” as president. He doesn’t know his azz from a hole in the ground…!!!

  7. Feinstein should go home and enjoy the rest of her life. If indeed, she has cognitive decline, she is incapable of doing her job. Piglosi and shumer should also undergo cognitive testing. And for sure shiff and Nadler. That should be a requisite for anyone in office past the age of 60. We DO need term limits, some of the people in office have been there too long, which gives them a false sense of entitlement, they “ think” it is owed to them for their long years of service. Not so! If they cannot do the job according to the constitution, they should not be in office period. Piglosi and shumer have that notion, they should be removed. Feinstein should be pitied, not scorned. It is not her fault her mental faculties are fading. It happens to most of us as we age.

  8. After reading all these comments, I wonder if 1. they are democrats writing this or 2. are these people conservatives and Christians who would write like democrats ? SHAME on you either way as she is a human being after all. SHAME ON YOU.

  9. It is OK to say Senator Feinstein has cognitive decline, but Joe Biden doesn’t have it?? He is going to be the President of the United States, but will never be my President!
