Democrat Playbook: Wheelchair-Bound Feinstein Forced to Resume Senate Duties

Share on social

In an eyebrow-raising development, Senator Dianne Feinstein returned to the Senate, wheelchair-bound and reportedly confused. But what’s the real story behind her sudden reappearance? Is the Democratic party prioritizing their political agenda over the health of a long-serving senator?

Senator Dianne Feinstein’s return to the Senate floor, following a two-month absence due to shingles, is causing ripples of concern. Despite clear signs of health issues — confusion, trembling, vision and balance impairments — Democrats appear to have prioritized their political needs over Feinstein’s wellbeing.

Feinstein’s critical vote is needed for approving judicial nominees appointed by President Joe Biden. Her return has allowed Democrats on the Judiciary Committee to approve six Biden nominees, thus illustrating the potential motive behind her rushed return. This raises a crucial question: are Democrats pushing an ailing senator back into service for their political gains?

The party-line nominees were Charnelle Bjelkengren, nominated for the U.S. court in Eastern District of Washington; S. Kato Crews for Colorado’s U.S. district court, and Marian F. Gaston for the U.S. district court in the Southern District of California. The votes had been put on hold while Feinstein was absent from Washington, D.C., further highlighting her significance in the Democratic party’s strategy.

Feinstein’s condition, however, paints a worrying picture. Upon her return, she appeared disoriented and was wheeled into the building alongside Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

The senator’s ongoing health issues have been acknowledged in a May 10 press release from her office, which stated she is still experiencing “vision and balance impairments” from her illness. Her doctors have advised her to work a lighter schedule as she recovers.

The Feinstein situation has not gone unnoticed by the public or her peers. Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Ro Khanna of California have called for her resignation, underscoring the severity of the situation. However, their voices remain in the minority.

Despite her condition, Feinstein’s office insists she is ready to resume her duties in the Senate. “I have returned to Washington and am prepared to resume my duties in the Senate,” Feinstein stated. But the question remains: at what cost?”

As Feinstein’s health is forced into the political spotlight, we are left grappling with a stark reality. Are Democrats prioritizing their political agenda over the wellbeing of one of their own? Are they so desperate to push through Biden’s judicial nominees that they’re willing to exploit an ailing senator? These questions loom large as we watch an 89-year-old senator, still suffering from the side effects of a debilitating illness, being thrust back into the high-stakes arena of the Senate floor. This is a developing story, and one we will continue to follow closely.
