Democrat Tells Befuddled Sen. Dianne Feinstein to 'Just Say Aye' On Appropriations Vote

Behold the wonders of democracy!

From Breitbart:
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) appeared confused and began speaking during a Senate Appropriations Committee vote on Thursday, prompting Chair Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) to repeatedly urge the 90-year-old to say "aye."

After Murray called for a vote on the Defense Appropriations bill, the clerk called on Feinstein, who had the choice of saying "aye" or "no." After an aide handed her a piece of paper, Murray told Feinstein, "Say aye."

"Pardon me?" replied Feinstein, who in May returned to the Senate after a two-month health-related absence and told reporters, "I haven't been gone," when asked about well wishes she had received.

"I would like to support a yes vote on this," Feinstein continued, despite Murray's attempts to help. "It provides $823 billion, that's an increase of $26 billion for the Department of Defense, and it funds priorities submitted."

The aide who handed her the paper suddenly returned to whisper something in the senator's ear, and Murray again told her to "Just say aye."

Feinstein laughed, "Okay. Aye."
This incident is going viral because of Feinstein's senility but you can be damn sure most congressmen will be told "just say aye" behind the scenes when the bill comes up for a floor vote and will do as they're ordered.

There was another similar incident last week where Virgin Island House Delegate Stacey Plaskett (D) was seen reading a statement off a script while an aide behind her lip-synced the words, made strange faces and jumped up to correct her when she misread her script.

Additionally, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R) in March went on Fox News and told Jesse Watters he does not support the anti-Free Speech "RESTRICT Act" -- despite his being listed as a co-sponsor of the bill -- only to have his handlers come out later that night and say he actually does support the bill and will be happy to defend it.

Meanwhile, Sen. John Fetterman is voting on bills despite being a seriously disabled stroke patient and Sen. Mitch McConnell -- who has had a host of serious medical problems -- is leading the GOP Senate even though it appears he's not long for this world.
