An environmental activist group called ‘Sunrise Movement’ is using children to advance the ‘Green New Deal’ offered by far left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. They sent a group of these kids to the office of Senator Dianne Feinstein but she didn’t give them the answers they were hoping for.
FOX News reports:
Dianne Feinstein scolds kids who pushed her to back Green New Deal: ‘I know what I’m doing’
Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein pulled rank Friday when a group of kids tried to school her on climate change.
After the group sought her support for the Green New Deal, the 85-year-old senior senator from California let them know she wasn’t about to be bossed around by a bunch of youngsters.
“You know what’s interesting about this group?,” Feinstein said, in an interaction that was captured on video. “I’ve been doing this for 30 years. I know what I’m doing.
“You come in here, and you say it has to be my way or the highway. I don’t respond to that,” Feinstein continued. “I’ve gotten elected, I just ran. I was elected by almost a million-vote plurality. And I know what I’m doing. So you know, maybe people should listen a little bit.”
This is actually pretty funny. Watch the video:
This is a fight for our generation's survival. Her reaction is why young people desperately want new leadership in Congress. pic.twitter.com/0zAkaxruMI

People on the left are pretty angry about this:
Adorable children: please, Senator, we don't want to live in misery and die early because of climate change
Dianne Feinstein: GET OFF MY FUCKING LAWN

I can only hope that when I am 85, I have the same "Well I'm gonna die soon anyway so you young kids trying to live on an inhabitable planet can go fuck yourselves" attitude of my esteemed senator, Dianne Feinstein.

Dianne Feinstein is rich as hell. Her grandchildren and their children won’t ever have to really deal with climate catastrophe.
Of course she doesn’t care.

Dianne Feinstein is old and traditional. She comes across as rude and cocky to the children in the video going around but I don’t think she intended it. We definitely need the Green New Deal and immediate action on climate change. Those kids are heroes. Feinstein isn’t a villain.

If we can throw Dianne Feinstein overboard in one afternoon after a clumsy video hit job, we are so fucked for 2020.

Dianne Feinstein’s reaction highlights a very important point. People like her who have been around for a long time, know that AOC’s Green New Deal is a loser. That’s why they don’t want to touch it.
