Former Speechwriter for Obama Declares Dianne Feinstein 'Should Not Be in the Senate'


Jon Lovett, a former speechwriter for former President Obama, shared his opinion on Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-Calif.) political career.

During an episode of the Pod Save America podcast, Lovett said, “There’s been a lot of reporting about Dianne Feinstein no longer being fit to serve in the Senate representing the biggest state in this country. She is currently out for shingles. That is sad. That is obviously not her fault.”

He continued, “But because she is not in the Judiciary Committee, Durbin has said that it has made it basically impossible to move a lot of these lower court nominees to the Senate for a vote, which means that Dianne Feinstein, who should not be in the Senate, is now preventing us from being able to confirm judges.”

Lovett suggested “what the people around Dianne Feinstein are doing, allowing, being part of this farce of having a lack of a senator in such an important job is really wrong.”

He added, “And Dianne Feinstein should no longer be in the Senate. She has to resign and more people should be calling on her to resign.”

In February, a statement was released from Feinstein saying she would not be running for reelection in 2024, IJR reported.

Should more people be calling on Feinstein to resign?

It later appeared Feinstein was surprised by the release of the statement on her retirement.

“I haven’t made that decision. I haven’t released anything,” Feinstein said.

A staffer then said, “We put out the statement.”

The senator replied, “You put out the statement? I didn’t know they put it out.”

The race for Feinstein’s seat appears to be getting more crowded.
