I apologize in advance for the headline typo -- which I corrected literally seconds after I pressed send! Mea culpa!

People like Joy are why we ended up with DJT in the first place. Our vote is nothing to be played with. Unfortunately, we are in a 2-party system and not voting for a Democrat, Biden, is as good as voting for the Republican, most likely tRump. That's a very dangerous thing to do at this time, whether she lives in California or not. And how are 80-year-olds selfish merely because of their age? Her argument was extremely weak. But yes, Feinstein should retire now.

Even if Biden was dead, he'd be a better president than a live Donald Trump or Ron DeFascist.

I was listening when she called and she absolutely indicated that Biden was selfish. I agree that Feinstein needs to step down and resign at this point. However, I agree with you as well that Biden has done a good job and we need to support him.

Good job for being truthful in your response.

When you say, “Good thing you live in California,” it’s another reminder of how so many of our votes don’t count. My vote doesn’t count in Tennessee, either. The Electoral College needs to go!

I heard that call live during your show. She claimed to be a “life long Democrat”, but will not vote for Biden because of his age.

In my opinion, she’s a fraud.

President Biden has proven to be a great leader for the people. Further, part of leadership is having strong team members to step in if/when necessary. He has that too.

I like to tease Republicans about Biden getting re-elected then retiring so Kamala Harris will be President.

I seriously doubt Joy is a "lifelong" Democrat. I live in California. We do have important races so it is important for every Democrat to vote and not take anything for granted. I think Biden is doing a really good job. By the way, a couple of weeks ago, I called Dianne Feinstein's office to ask her to resign.

Why are some people such haters?? And yes, Joy is selfish and self obsessed! What is this age thing with some people ?

Or was she a fake lifelong democrat, trying to crank up democratic suicide by encouraging ageism. Im always cautious of people who announce they are....

I think she was wrong -- you attacked for a very good reason. Holy cow is she selfish or an idiot or a selfish idiot. 🤦🏼‍♀️

I find her line of thinking so offensive. I'm 67 years old, and I'm still working full time at a position of considerable responsibility. If Biden's able to do the job, his age is irrelevant. However, I do wish the Democrats would start grooming younger people--like AOC, Sara Jacobs, Ritchie Torres, to name a few--to take the reins. That's something that Republicans are much better at, which is why we end up with right wingers who will be in office for 50 years! Instead, Democrats eat their young. Even if Biden, Sanders, Durbin, and Cardin, for instance, are able to do the job (Feinstein certainly isn't), sooner or later they're going to die! I mean, I can't blame one sick, old lady for causing all of our problems, but RBG certainly contributed to our current situation in a big way.
