We got McConnell, Fetterman, Biden, and Feinstein in DC, and boy is it a sight to behold.
During a routine Senate committee proceeding, the California Senator began to read from a prepared statement instead of responding with “aye” during a roll call vote.
Feinstein, 90, was attending a Senate Appropriations Subcommittee meeting, and roll was being taken before the vote on the defense appropriations bill.
It is practice for all the members present for the vote to say “aye” so that their decision is recorded.
When it was the 90-year-old Senator’s turn to say “aye” she froze.
“Just say, ‘Aye,'” Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., told Feinstein.
“Pardon me,” Feinstein responded.
“Aye,” Murray reiterated.
Then a confused Feinstein began speaking in favor of the bill.
“I would like to support a ‘yes’ vote on this,” Feinstein said. “It provides $823 billion — that’s an increase of $26 billion for the Department of Defense, and it funds priorities submitted—”
A staff member then cut off the Senator and informed her roll was still be taken.
“Just say, ‘Aye,'” Murray told Feinstein once more.
“Okay, just…” Feinstein said.
Then the Senator laughed and said, “aye.”
A Feinstein spokesperson told Fox News that the “chaotic” moments of the hearing confused the Senator.
“Trying to complete all of the appropriations bills before recess, the committee markup this morning was a little chaotic, constantly switching back and forth between statements, votes, and debate and the order of bills. The senator was preoccupied, didn’t realize debate had just ended and a vote was called. She started to give a statement, was informed it was a vote and then cast her vote.”
There are reports coming from Europe that Wagner forces may attack Poland and we have politicians that are getting confused during a roll call and freeze up for 20 seconds when speaking with the press. If you haven’t noticed, gas is starting to climb again, food prices are about to go up again, there was panic buying for rice, and interest rates skyrocketed again.
Meanwhile, in the Senate, we can’t get through roll call, and another Senator has to read what he’s told to say from an iPad.
