Sen. Dianne Feinstein “stunned a San Francisco crowd Tuesday evening,” The Washington Times reported, when she said that President Trump could be a good president if everyone would just employ a little “patience.”
“I think we have to have some patience, I do,” Feinstein told a packed house at a Commonwealth Club event. “It’s eight months into the tenure of the presidency … We’ll have to see if he can forget himself and his feelings about himself enough to be able to have the empathy and direction that this country needs.”
Her lukewarm statement reportedly brought hisses and boos from the audience who would obviously prefer he be impeached.
“This man is going to be president most likely for the rest of this term,” Feinstein said. “I just hope he has the ability to learn and change. If he does, he can be a good president.”
In regard to some of the plans the president has proposed, the California Democrat suggested that the hurricane and flooding in Texas was going to take priority over Trump’s proposed border wall. In matters of race in the country, Feinstein said Trump placated white supremacists and the KKK with his Charlottesville statement.
When she was asked what her plans were over the next five to ten years, the senator ducked and said, “Next question.”
Feinstein is up for reelection next year if she so chooses. And why wouldn’t she after five terms already?
