The decade's most triggering comedy
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) has passed away, and while there is plenty in her decades-long senatorial career to scrutinize, there’s one shining moment that deserves special attention: The time she put a bunch of global warming-indoctrinated kids in their place.
In February of 2019, the far-Left Sunrise Movement paid a visit to Feinstein’s office in hopes of convincing California’s senior senator to support Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey’s Green New Deal. It didn’t quite go the way the group expected.
While protesting to Feinstein that only 12 years remained to take bold action against climate change, the group of youngsters demanded that she vote according to their wishes. Feinstein stood with her arms crossed and gave those kids a wake-up call.
“You know what’s interesting about this group?” Feinstein said to them while standing defiant. “I’ve been doing this for 30 years. I know what I’m doing. You come in here and you say it has to be my way or the highway. I don’t respond to that.”

You can see the kids’ faces change from a look of exuberance to melancholy as they realize that Feinstein won’t budge.
At one point, a teenager said, “I hear what you are saying, but we’re the people who voted for you. You’re supposed to listen to us.”
“How old are you?” Feinstein calmly said back.
“Sixteen, I can’t vote,” the teenager replied.
“Well, you didn’t vote for me,” the elected official responded.
An older woman in the group tried to appeal to Feinstein’s position as a grandmother in a whiny monologue claiming that Feinstein’s alternative to the Green New Deal didn’t go far enough in protecting future generations.
“You know better than I do, so I think one day you should run for the Senate and then you do it your way,” Feinstein said.
In watching the video, it seems that this was the first time many of these kids had ever heard the word “no” before. Indeed, Feinstein provided a master class on how to deal with leftists. May she rest in peace.
