It isn’t often these days that you get to see a Democrat senator literally jump for joy. This is especially true of Dianne Feinstein (D-Cal.) who is so unpopular in her own state that California Democrats refused to endorse her reelection campaign. But Mrs. Feinstein got a pleasant surprise when President Trump asked if her “assault weapons” ban could be added to the current gun control bill.
In the televised meeting at the White House, seen here on CNN, President Trump responds to Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) by offering to include various Democratic gun control proposals in the bill being written by Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) and backed by the president.
“Dianne, if you could add what you have also – and I think you can — into the bill,” Trump offered to the anti-gun Democrat sitting beside him.
Feintstein’s reaction should make NRA members and gun owners physically sick. Feinstein, who apparently was not expecting the overture from the president, immediately breaks into a broad smile and literally gives a happy little jump.
“Joe, are you ready?” she echoes the president with a huge smile.
Feinstein clasps her hands together in joy and at one point touches Trump’s elbow affectionately.
“Joe, can you do that?” Trump asks as Feinstein doubles over ecstatically beside him.
“Some of the things you’re not going to agree with,” Trump adds.
“If you help,” Feinstein interjects.
“Well, no, I’ll help,” Trump answers.
It has been said that politics makes strange bedfellows, but few are stranger than Donald Trump, the NRA-backed Republican, and Dianne Feinstein, the California liberal whose attempts at “gun-grabbing” have made her infamous in the pro-gun community. Anything that makes Dianne Feinstein this happy should have gun owners watching their gun cabinets closely.
