Video Shows Dianne Feinstein Dismissing Kids Asking About Green New Deal

She lectures the kids that she just won re-election by a million votes and reiterates "I know what I'm doing". "I got elected by an nearly 1 million vote plurality". I know what I'm doing.

Feinstein addressed the exchange in a news release later Friday, confirming that she met with a group of children, young adults and parents from the Sunrise Movement who sought her backing for the resolution. The group also posted an unedited version of the video on its Facebook page.

Sunrise Movement accused Feinstein of responding to the children with "smugness" and 'disrespect'.

This is a fight for our generation's survival.

A younger girl retorted that it doesn't matter because "we're gonna be the ones who are impacted", and Feinstein said she understood as she has seven grandchildren.

Later, a young woman stresses the need for a climate plan with "bold, transformative action", and Feinstein replies, "Well, you know better than I do".

"Well, you didn't vote for me", the lawmaker said. But did they? Some chose to post the full interaction of the exchange and found that-gasp-Sunrise may have just shared the moments where Feinstein looked bad. "And you can take that back to whoever sent you here".

'You know what's interesting about this group? Feinstein responded. "Then you can do it your way".

A group of children from the Sunrise Movement visited Sen. Dianne Feinstein's office to talk about how climate change will impact their lives and encourage her to support Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's New Green Deal.
