Senator’s Cognitive Decline Worries Colleagues

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1912: RMS Titanic sinks at 2:27 AM off Newfoundland as the band plays on, with the loss of between 1,490 and 1,635 people.

Longtime California Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D) is showing clear signs of cognitive decline, causing her colleagues to fear that no longer mentally fit for Congress.

“It’s bad, and it’s getting worse,” an unnamed Democratic senator told the San Francisco Chronicle.

The lawmaker said they had to reintroduce themselves to Feinstein, their colleague of 15 years, multiple times over the span of a few hours.

Feinstein, 88, also repeatedly asked the same innocuous questions with no apparent recognition that she was repeating herself.

The senator was so unnerved by their interaction with Feinstein that they reached out to colleagues to see if there’s a way to convince the 88-year-old to retire.

“I have worked with her for a long time and long enough to know what she was like just a few years ago: always in command, always in charge, on top of the details, basically couldn’t resist a conversation where she was driving some bill or some idea. All of that is gone,” said the lawmaker, who requested anonymity due to the sensitivity of the situation.

“She was an intellectual and political force not that long ago, and that’s why my encounter with her was so jarring. Because there was just no trace of that.”

Feinstein’s current term ends in 2024. She has not formally announced intentions to seek another term.

    Most Democrats over 70 are senile, take a look at Biden and Crooked Hilary, lol..

  2. TC Chavez says:

    Dementedcrats are a problem with many showing marked mental declines after 70. We need term limits. We have a president Biden who walks around lost and does not know where he is or what state of the country he is in. We have Maxine Waters marching into a crown of homeless people telling them to go home. We have Nancy Pelosi who when she speaks, you have to wonder what she is trying to say and rubs her knuckles together like a crazed loon. We have Diane Feinstein whose coworkers see her in mental decline but Diane still thinks she is on top of her game. How many more are in office in mental decline running the country?

    1. emma s neville says:

      I agree.

  3. Carl Powers says:

    Republicans And Democrat leaders over the age of 70 Must be required to take a cognitive test twice a year and if they fail, Immediate retirement. This country is fast going downhill because of mentally incompetent people in positions of power on Capital hill.

  4. the old Marine says:

    Maybe the people who vote need to take a mental test then we would not have this problem. We need term limits, and no retirement until age is the same as the people need to be and the same as the average worker gets. Why do they get so much more than us who pay for everything.

  5. Suan says:

    Carl and Marine- I agree. Both parties have over 70 year olds whose abilities are called into question (some younger ones, too). The voting public must take control and vote for the person with our interests in mind.
    In the 2016 election, I asked the question : Trump and Clinton- is this the BEST we can offer as presidential candidates? The USA is the greatest country in the world. Trump, a lifelong NYer with real estate interests there and Clinton a lifelong politician. Did either of them represent what the average tax payer wants in their president?

    All Democrats are mentally unfit. Were they mentally fit for public office, then they would not be Democrats. They are the scum of the earth. They are traitors to the nation, to their oaths of office, to God, and to all of humanity.
