Feinstein ‘Briefly’ Hospitalized After Falling At California Home

Elderly Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) was “briefly” hospitalized on Tuesday after falling at her San Francisco, California home, according to her office.

Feinstein’s office confirmed the incident in a statement to NBC News, though they have not provided any details about the 90-year-old senator’s potential injuries.

“Senator Feinstein briefly went to the hospital yesterday afternoon as a precaution after a minor fall in her home,” the statement read. “All of her scans were clear and she returned home.”

This fall is just the latest incident to prompt concern and outrage over the elderly senator’s refusal to resign despite obvious cognitive and physical decline. While she continues to hold on to her position of power within the Senate, Feinstein recently ceded power of attorney to her daughter, Katherine, in her legal affairs — making it clear that the people around her are aware of her health issues, but content with her continuing to cling to power.

Some critics have suggested that the Democrats, especially Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), are only keeping Feinstein in office because they fear that California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) will not appoint their chosen candidate to replace her — as the Democrat governor previously announced that he would appoint a Black woman to the position, while congressional Democrats want disgraced Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) to take her place.

“The only reason Feinstein, 90, is still in the Senate – despite barely knowing where she is and her daughter having power-of-attorney over her life – is Pelosi fears Newsom will name @RepBarbaraLee to replace her, making it harder for Adam Schiff to beat Lee,” tweeted independent journalist Glenn Greenwald, declaring the Democrats’ actions “Pure elder abuse.”

This is not the first instance of Feinstein’s advanced age effecting her day-to-day life, as she recently appeared confused during a Senate Appropriations Committee vote and had to be told by Rep. Patty Murray (D-WA) how to vote.

When she was supposed to just say “aye” or “no” to signal her vote on the bill, Feinstein instead began mumbling about why she supported the bill. She was interrupted by an aide whispering something in her ear, and then Murray was heard telling Feinstein to “Just say, ‘Aye.’”

Feinstein has also missed more than 90 votes this year, as she had to take a two-month-long health-related absence from the Senate that was supposedly due to shingles. Upon returning to Washington, D.C., in May, she was asked about her absence by reporters. Feinstein then repeatedly insisted that she had been in the Senate working the entire time.
“No, I haven’t been gone. You should follow the — I haven’t been gone. I’ve been working,” she told reporters.

One reporter tried to help her choose her words more carefully, asking: “Working from home is what you’re saying?”

“No, I’ve been here. I’ve been voting,” Feinstein responded.

Even the far-left New York Times has admitted that Democrats have been struggling to keep Feinstein’s declining mental health from the public — noting in an article that the elderly senator “sometimes struggles to recall the names of colleagues, frequently has little recollection of meetings or telephone conversations, and at times walks around in a state of befuddlement.”

Feinstein is set to retire at the end of her term in 2025 at nearly 92 years old. Reps. Katie Porter (D-CA), Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Barbara Lee (D-CA) have already announced their intentions to run for her seat.
