Radical-Left Group Calls To Remove Diane Feinstein From Senate Committee For Hugging Sen. Lindsey Graham

California Senator Dianne Feinstein has been one of the toughest GOP critics in her nearly thirty-year tenure in the Senate.
Recently, Feinstein has been making waves in the news due to the hearings of Supreme Court Nominee, Any Coney Barrett. Feinstein has done her fair share of grilling for Supreme Court Nominee for virtually everything she can think of, especially ACB's Catholic faith.
Just a few days ago, the California Senator was caught on a "hot mic" revealing her true feelings on the judge's religious views.
That clip, along with commentary by the famous Tucker Carlson, can be seen here:
On Thursday afternoon, after a long, grueling week of hearings, Dianne Feinstein offered a warm gesture to her across-the-aisle adversary, Senator Lindsey Graham. She hugged him, as a symbol of unity - it's what America is really all about.
Even during the most heated presidential race in American history and in the midst of a highly controversial Supreme Court Justice being sworn in, party leaders from both sides of the aisle show that they're both still human, and above all, Americans.
As anyone can see, it was nothing to get excited (or angry) about.
However, the left-wing mobs and progressives everywhere took great offense to such an act.
As a contentious week of confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett wrapped up Thursday, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee had little to offer but praise.
“This has been one of the best set of hearings that I’ve participated in,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.). “It leaves one with a lot of hopes, a lot of questions and even some ideas perhaps of good bipartisan legislation we can put together."
If that wasn’t enough to anger Democrats — who have spent this week trying to paint Barrett’s nomination process as a sham — Feinstein also thanked the committee’s chair, Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.), and then walked across the room to wrap him in a hug.
Never mind that neither senator was wearing a face mask. Many Democrats were so much more incensed about what that hug symbolized — a final white flag, a compliment for Graham after a comparatively tame week of questioning — that, hours later, at least two liberal activist groups called for Feinstein to go.
“It’s time for Sen. Feinstein to step down from her leadership position on the Senate Judiciary Committee,” Brian Fallon, the executive director of Demand Justice, said in a statement. “If she won’t, her colleagues need to intervene.”
Radical leftists are calling for Dianne Feinstein to step down from her role as a party leader because she offered a small gesture of good faith to a Republican Senator. This what what the left has become.
The Twitter mobs and social-justice warriors were not kind to Feinstein.
After an exchange with Barrett about the Affordable Care Act, Feinstein praised the nominee, saying Barrett’s answer left her “really impressed.”
Democrats reacted to the 87-year-old senator’s handling of the hearing and her praise of Graham, a top Trump ally who is on the ballot in November, with anger and dismay.
“It’s very hard to watch a colleague in decline. That this is occurring publicly is even harder,” said one Democratic senator, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
“Excuse me while I go punch a hole in the wall,” Democratic strategist Adam Parkhomenko added on Twitter.
Brian Fallon, founder and executive director of Demand Justice, a progressive judicial advocacy group that urged Democrats to play hardball during the hearings, went further by calling for Feinstein’s removal from the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Demand for Justice is what one might call an alt-left group dedicated to undermining American Conservatism and promoting one-party-rule in the United States. Their founder, Brian Fallon, expressed his discontent with Dianne Feinstein's outrageous act.
It's refreshing to see opposing Senators show some civility toward each other.
