The Washington Post and other leftists blasted Sen. Dianne Feinstein this week for praising Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, after the hearings for Supreme Court nominee Amy Barrett.
“This has been one of the best set of hearings that I’ve participated in,” said Feinstein, the ranking member of the Committee. “It leaves one with a lot of hopes, a lot of questions and even some ideas perhaps of good bipartisan legislation we can put together.” She also thanked Sen. Graham and gave him a hug.
This kind of civility and bipartisanship is unacceptable to the left. The Post published a hit piece quoting critics of Feinstein’s behavior, implying her age is concerning and even trashing her on mask protocol. “And even before the Senate took up another nomination this month, Democrats expressed concerns that Feinstein — the oldest lawmaker in her chamber and the second-oldest in Congress — had grown too disengaged to fight the GOP tooth-and-nail over the future of Ginsburg’s seat,” the Post reported. “It’s time for Senator Feinstein to step down from her leadership position on the Senate Judiciary Committee,” Brian Fallon, the executive director of Demand Justice, said in a statement. “If she won’t, her colleagues need to intervene.”
The Post concluded with a tweet from obscure, Trump-hating comedian Billy Eichner: “Time to retire.”
