Oh this is precious. California’s senator Dianne Feinstein is facing criticism over a video showing her responding to a group of children and teenagers asking her to support the Ocasio-Cortez backed Green New Deal.
The video clip, which was posted on Twitter, shows Feinstein meeting with some kids that are part of the Sunrise Movement. The kids were asking her to support the “Green New Deal”.
Feinstein rebuked the young activists’ request, in the video, one kid says:
“The government is supposed to be for the people, by the people, and all for the people.”
“I’ve been doing this for 30 years. I know what I’ve been doing,”
“You come in here and say it has to be my way or the highway. I’ve gotten elected. I just ran. I was elected by almost a million vote plurality and I know what I’m doing. Maybe people should listen a little bit.”
The conversation continues:
“I hear what you’re saying,” “But we’re the people who voted you, you’re supposed to listen to us.”
“How old are you?” Feinstein asks her.
“I’m 16,” the kid responds.
“Well, you didn’t vote for me,” Feinstein says.
LOL I don’t know what’s worse; kids being used for propaganda, or an old political crony more concerned about votes than issues.
But, at least senator Feinstein realizes the “Green New Deal” is an unworkable fantasy, and rightly rejects it.
Feinstein’s office issued a damage-control statement Friday evening, saying:
Apparently, “real and meaningful” doesn’t include the AOC fantasy Green New Deal.
