As the news of Sen. Feinstein’s continued absence and calls for her resignation spread, Twitter users had a lot to say. Many agreed that the senator should step down immediately, while others defended her right to take time off for medical reasons.
Some users expressed frustration that Feinstein’s absence was holding up important judicial appointments, while others argued that her health should come first. Many also pointed out that her age and long tenure in the Senate had raised concerns about her ability to perform her duties effectively.
Whatever one’s opinion of Feinstein, it is clear that her continued absence has become a major issue for the Senate and for the Biden administration.
With so much at stake in terms of judicial appointments and other policy priorities, it remains to be seen whether she will return to work or step down from her position altogether.
