What Happened when Dianne Feinstein Tried to Talk Reason to Her Base?

Senator Dianne Feinstein tried to be positive about Donald Trump but most of her audience was far too radicalized to listen.

The main takeaway for Trump supporters from what Senator Dianne Feinstein tried to do is that she must realize that the President is doing better (and Democrats doing worse) than the media is reporting. Feinstein is still as liberal as ever, so her approach to Trump must be dictated by her own appraisal of how she can best protect her interests. And amid all her criticism, she demonstrated that she does not believe that the Leftist’s war on Trump will succeed.

But most of her listeners are too zealous to accept her reasonable statements.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, “Feinstein surprises SF crowd by expressing hope for Trump.

Feinstein received a standing ovation from the 850 people at the sold-out Herbst Theater when she walked onto the stage for an hour-long “conversation” with former East Bay Rep. Ellen Tauscher. But near the end of the political lovefest, the senator shocked the crowd when she declined to say that Trump should be impeached, and warned the audience that they should expect to deal with the developer-turned politician for all four years of his term.

“The question is whether he can learn and change,” Feinstein told the crowd at the Commonwealth Club event. “If so, I believe he can be a good president.”

But Feinstein didn’t back away, reacting to a question about why Democrats aren’t being more out front in attacking Trump by reminding people that not only is Trump president, but he’s also only been in office for eight months.


Feinstein argued that a strategy of all attack, all the time, wasn’t going to make it easier for her or any other Democrat to accomplish anything in Washington.

“I have to work with people and a punch in the nose is not going to do it,” she said.
