Sen. Dianne Feinstein confused by VP Kamala Harris' participation in tie-breaking vote: report
Feinstein, 89, was away from the Senate from February until May dealing with complications from shingles

By Landon Mion | Fox News

California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat, was reportedly confused last year after observing Vice President Kamala Harris presiding over the Senate for a tie-breaking vote.

Feinstein, 89, appeared unaware during one vote as to why Harris, who had previously broken numerous ties, was taking up her role as president of the Senate, according to a report from The New York Times.

A witness included in the report said Feinstein allegedly asked colleagues, "What is she doing here?"

With the Senate locked in a 50-50 majority split for the first two years of the Biden administration, Democrats needed every member of their party plus Harris' tie-breaking vote to approve many bills and nominations.

The senator's deteriorating memory was well-documented last year, with some lawmakers and former aides telling the San Francisco Chronicle that she can no longer fulfill her duties and represent the nearly 40 million people of California without substantial assistance from aides.

This year, Feinstein was absent from the Senate from February until May as she dealt with complications from shingles. When she returned, she suffered from a neurological disorder called Ramsay Hunt Syndrome that stemmed from her struggles with shingles.

A week after coming back to Capitol Hill following her three-month absence, Feinstein appeared unaware she had been away. After a reporter asked on May 16 about her colleagues' response to her return, Feinstein claimed she never left.

Dianne, it's not just you. We ask the same question at least five times a day.

Well,in all fairness,pretty much everything Kamali and Slow Joe do confuses me.
Anyone who isn't paranoid in 2021 just isn't thinking clearly!
