It seems that many progressives refuse to leave fantasy land so it is to little surprise that Senator Dianne Feinstein gets booed at a prog gathering in San Francisco. Some of her heresy against the Party line is as follows: “Look, this man is going to be president, most likely for the rest of this term,”, “I think we have to have some patience—it’s eight months into the tenure of the presidency.”, and “I just hope he has the ability to learn and change—and if he can, he can be a good president.” Perhaps Sen. Feinstein hasn’t yet realized that there is no place for reason in the current Democratic Party as evidenced by California Senate President Kevin de Leon’s response: “We don’t have much patience for Donald Trump here in California,” and “This president has not shown any capacity to learn and proven he is not fit for office. It is the responsibility of Congress to hold him accountable—especially Democrats—not be complicit in his reckless behavior.” Of course de Leon doesn’t state what crime President Trump needs to be removed from office for; perhaps his mere existence and refusal to submit to the Party is enough.
The article goes on to state that the moderates in the Party are hurting it and being urged to step aside by many members. That’s exactly what they need, for any moderating or dissenting voices to be forever silenced. The article drones on about random Democrats who trying to file impeachment articles against President Trump and saves some of it’s best points for last: “Still, Feinstein does not enjoy the same freedom as many of her colleagues. She is a member of the two Senate committees—intelligence and judiciary—that are investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election.”
Perhaps she’s just trying to let the frenzied Democrats down slowly. Perhaps the charges of “collusion” between President Trump and Russia shouldn’t have been hyped up so much (besides, no one does collusion with the
Russians Soviets like Ted Kennedy). This is how the article ends: “What’s more, the stark reality for any Democrat, even with a president as unpopular as Trump, is that, with Republicans in control of both the House and the Senate, there will simply not be the votes required to convict Trump anytime soon.”
Who needs to accept reality right? Certainly not a bunch of crazed California progressives. As always, the comments section is full of great insight:
