Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), who was speaking during a vote on Capitol Hill on Thursday, appeared to become disoriented.
The defense appropriations bill was being marked up, and senators were requested to take part in a roll call vote.
Feinstein was summoned first, but she started speaking instead.
“I would like to support a ‘yes’ vote on this. It provides 823 billion, that’s an increase of 26 billion for the Department of Defense and it funds priorities submitted…,” Feinstein read from a paper.

Feinstein’s speech was cut off by what appeared to be a staff member whispering in her ear, and Senate Appropriations Chairwoman Patty Murray (D-WA) instructed her to “Just say ‘aye.'”
Feinstein chuckled as she voted “Aye,” and the process moved forward.
Some members of the press corps retreated at the time. On X, formerly Twitter, Punchbowl News writer Andrew Desiderio commented, “This was quite awkward.” Sahil Kapur from NBC agreed, calling it an “awkward moment.”
Feinstein is the Senate’s longest-serving senator at 90, and some of her colleagues have recently begun to express concerns about her mental health and capacity to perform her duties.
After she returned to the Senate this spring in a wheelchair, completing a month-long vacation during which the member was receiving treatment for and healing from the shingles, scrutiny increased.
Feinstein declared in February that she would not run for office again in 2024. Reps. Adam Schiff, Katie Porter, and Barbara Lee, three prominent House Democrats, have declared their candidacies to succeed Feinstein in the Senate.
However, a few of Feinstein’s fellow Democrats have urged her to resign before the end of her tenure. Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) is one of them, though he told POLITICO he would give the “situation the benefit of the doubt” and is “hopeful” Feinstein will be able to carry out her duties.
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), a senator who is 81 years old, made headlines on Wednesday when he briefly froze while speaking to the press. Shortly after being led from the podium, McConnell returned and declared himself “fine.”
Although McConnell’s concussion from a fall earlier this year was already known, rumors that he had fallen at least twice more in recent months surfaced after the majority leader’s press conference stand-still.
Ok, this may sound off-topic but it really isn’t.
Who else is sick and tired of the woke agenda being shoved down our throats every day?
You know what makes it even worse is that we are funding it with our dollars.
Yep, and it stinks.
Every day we are fighting the culture war that is destroying our nation and when we go to the store we are funding it with our dollars.
However, it doesn’t have to be that way and I am so excited to find alternatives.
The only “catch”?
It’s Invite only.
Good thing you know someone that has the invites….(me!).
Yep! I would not make a suggestion if I wasn’t going to hook you up.
If you’d like to find out more and get a FREE personal invite, just go here and tell them SASSY sent you: https://bit.ly/43LHNdx
It’s the real deal for sure, and since it is invite only and does not run like other corrupt conglomerates they may have the SHUT OFF invites if they grow too fast.
We need to stop sending our dollars to the corporations that hate us and want to see us gone!
Remember the Georgia Guidestones?
They literally told us they wanted to reduce us from 8 billion people on Earth down to only 500 million.
No big deal, right?
Just an elimination of 94% of all people living right now.
And yet we continue to shop at their big stores and send them our money because until now we’ve had little choice.
Well, today that changes.
It’s time to “ditch and switch” and change where you send your dollars each month.
What if I told you instead of sending your money to Jeff Bezos and Costco and Walmart, you could shop at the LAST pro-America, freedom-loving, American designer, manufacturer, and shipper of all the stuff you buy each month?
Oh, and what if I told you the products are BETTER and often CHEAPER?
Yes, for real.
And what if I told you this is the best-kept secret you’ve never heard of before, but that this company has been doing this for the last 37 years?
And their founder was once placed on Barack Hussein Obama’s list of the Top 10 most “Dangerous Conservatives” in America?
(a list I one day hope to make myself!)
All of that is real and I’m so excited to tell you about it and I hope you’ll join the MISSION with me.
Here’s a quick summary of this company that I’m so excited to now be partnered up with on this mission:
Sound good to anyone else?
I can get you in, but you can’t just go sign up.
They only want people on the same mission to join and they’re happy to say “no” to the Far-Left Libs!
They’ve been doing it for 37 years, and it works great.
Oh, and did I mention the products are non-toxic and don’t have all the chemicals and crap like Red Dye 40 that all the Big Corporations put in their products to weaken you?
To wear you down?
To make you — and your family — sick?
Because then when you get sick you’ll buy their drugs!
Sorry folks, I don’t play that game and neither does my family.
We’re talking about the LAST all-natural, grass-fed, no hormone, massive beef cattle ranch in the United States….
We’re talking Fluoride Free Toothpaste, chemical-free cleaners, and Deet-free mosquito repellant!
What novel concepts, right?
Stop sending your money to these 11 corporations that do NOT have your best interest at heart:
It’s an ILLUSION of choice.
There’s only one pro-American, American-made and manufactured, chemical-free, toxin-free, hormone-free, company left….and I’m teaming up with them to FIGHT BACK!
As I said, it’s Invite Only and the invite is entirely free!
In fact, I’ve assembled a team of patriots who will personally get you invited and signed up….if you want in.
Folks, we don’t have many strongholds left.
This is one.
And I’m all in.
If you’d like to find out more and get a FREE personal invite, just go here: https://bit.ly/43LHNdx
Tell them Sassy sent you and I promise you will get a personal call or text. If you want an email make sure you use one where one of the team members can get in touch with you.
Don’t freak out when you do.
And make sure you tell them you are interested in the Black Angus beef!
I know I tend to get concerned when I get messages from numbers I don’t recognize, but if you request a Free Invite (Link here: https://bit.ly/43LHNdx you WILL have someone from my Inner Circle reach out to you….so be ready!
These are awesome people and I think you’ll love getting a chance to talk with them.
And they’ll help get you all set up.
Who’s with me?
