California Senator Dianne Feinstein has died at 90 after a series of well-publicized health complications. The historic senator recently suffered a fall at home for which she was hospitalized. A picture of her being wheeled back into Senate chambers in Washington, D.C. went viral due to her disheveled and elderly state. A video of the Senator also went viral due to her aides telling her to “vote aye” instead of doing any speaking at all. Critics of Feinstein remaining in office despite her obviously impaired state claim that this is a clear example of elder abuse. There are also calls for term limits (and cognitive function tests) that would have applied to Feinstein but also to other people currently in office – including President Joe Biden.
