RUSH: Last Tuesday Senator Dianne Feinstein appeared in San Francisco at a sold-out event, the Commonwealth Club of California. You can’t afford to get in. She got a standing O when she came onstage for an hour-long conversation with former Congresswoman Ellen Tauscher.
Nothing unusual happened as the two liberals chatted, until near the end. Senator Feinstein was asked why Democrats aren’t being more out-front in their attacks on Trump. What do they think they’re being, docile? Instead of playing to her audience, Feinstein served them cold water from the bucket of truth.
She reminded them Trump’s only been president for only eight months, that they should all forget about impeachment, and should be prepared to deal with Trump for the first four years of his term.
Then she said: “The question is whether he can learn and change. If so, I believe he can be a good president.” That was like showing Dracula the cross.
But she went further. She said attacking Trump all the time is making it hard for her and Democrats in Washington to get anything done. The crowd was in shock. First there was stunned silence. Then some hisses. Then nervous laughter. They totally misunderstood her. What she was saying was that if Trump would simply grow and become more like liberal Democrats, he could end up being a great president.
But they are so filled with hate, they didn’t get it.
