Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) continues to receive harsh criticism after praising Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Lindsey Graham for pushing Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination before the election.

Democrats have been urged to replace Feinstein — who never went to law school and has never tried a case — from her position as the ranking Democrat on the committee. If Democrats win control of the Senate in the 2020 election, Feinstein is expected to chair the committee.

MSNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber described the clip of Feinstein praising Grahm as “just wild.”

“Mr. Chairman, I just want to thank you, this has been one of the best set of hearings that I’ve participated in and I want to thank you for your fairness and the opportunity of going back and forth. It leaves one with a lot of hopes,” Feinstein noted. “Thank you so much for your leadership.”

MSNBC analyst Tony Schwartz noted that Feinstein is 87 years old, a topic that trended on Twitter.

Schwartz said Feinstein has “severely diminished mental capacity.”

“I do believe and I think there is plenty of evidence that she is diminished mentally and that we don’t need to parse this too deeply because she wouldn’t have said it if she were thinking more clearly,” he explained.

"Any pardons before leaving office?" ABC correspondent Jonathan Karl could be heard yelling. "Will you be interested in a pardon for yourself."

Published

After President Donald Trump announced his General Services Administrator (GSA) Emily Murphy would be moving forward with the Biden transition, Fox News host Laura Ingraham broke the news to her audience in a seemingly awkward on-air announcement.

On Monday evening, after Trump tweeted to thank Murphy for her work, Ingraham recalled all that has transpired during the post-election period as she discussed the reality of what lies ahead. Although Trump has repeatedly declared he has won the election while continuing to give his supporters a false sense of hope, Ingraham made it clear that Trump overturning the election would be unlikely.
