Feinstein Won’t Step Down Early Despite Mental Health Concerns

Feinstein Won’t Step Down Early Despite Mental Health Concerns

December 14, 2022

Sen. Dianne Feinstein will serve out the remainder of her term, she told the Los Angeles Times this week, despite worrying reports about the 89-year-old’s mental fitness.

Feinstein has spent roughly 30 years in the Senate, and critics have raised questions about her mental health, citing a reportedly failing memory, among other things.

“Yes. Absolutely,” she told when asked whether she plans to stay on. “There’s still two years, you know. A lot can happen in two years.”

“The senator has no plans to step down and will announce her plans for 2024 at the appropriate time,” a spokesperson confirmed in a statement to Fox News Digital.

Concerns about Feinstein’s fitness for office have simmered in recent years, but the issue exploded into the mainstream earlier this year with a report from the San Francisco Chronicle detailing concerns from her fellow Democrats that her memory and ability to converse coherently were fading.

“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,” an anonymous lawmaker told the Chronicle.

“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,” the lawmaker reportedly continued.

“It’s bad, and it’s getting worse,” another lawmaker, a Democratic senator, reportedly told the Chronicle.

So the Democrat Party, always crowing about diversity and demonizing “whiteness,” has essentially become the Party of senile, old, white people.
