The longtime liberal newspaper ‘The San Francisco Chronicle’ recommended on Thursday that Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) resign due to her mental unfitness for the job.
As The Hill reports:
The editorial board of the San Francisco Chronicle on Thursday called for Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) to resign, arguing its reporting shows she is mentally unfit to handle the job.
The editorial was published following an article from the newspaper that cited concerns about Feinstein’s mental fitness and memory recall abilities from three of her former staff members and four current U.S. senators, including three Democrats.
The editorial board of The Chronicle cited one instance from the report in which an unnamed Democratic member of Congress from California had to introduce themselves several times to Feinstein, 88, despite working with the senator for more than a decade.
“It remains impossible not to be troubled,” the editorial read. “If Feinstein’s mental fitness has indeed deteriorated to the point where it’s an open secret that she’s incapable of doing her job, Democrats need to forgo the jokes and say so openly.”
Feinstein attempted to defend herself from accusations of incompetence on Friday when she claimed that her recent mental mistakes were due to the grief caused by the passing of her husband.
