Citizens expressed concern Tuesday after footage emerged of a "visibly shaken" Elizabeth Warren clinging to a staffer's hand for dear life while attempting to walk several yards to a waiting vehicle. Even with the staffer's assistance, the Democratic lawmaker nearly stumbled on several occasions as reporters shouted questions about abortion.
"Does she have Parkinson's or something?" a concerned American asked the Washington Free Beacon after viewing the footage of Warren. "Why does she need a staffer to hold her hand while walking?" The voting public deserves an honest answer.
Warren, who will turn 73 next month, is only slightly younger than Hillary Clinton, the female Democrat best known for collapsing on the streets of Manhattan after suffering a "medical episode" during the 2016 presidential campaign.
The disturbing footage surfaced shortly after the New York Times published a report on Warren's 88-year-old colleague, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.), whose declining cognitive health is an "open secret" on Capitol Hill. Feinstein, who reportedly "struggles to recall the names of colleagues, frequently has little recollection of meetings or telephone conversations, and at times walks around in a state of befuddlement," told the Times she has no plans to retire before her term is up in 2024.
Feinstein is one of several prominent Democrats whose age exceeds the average life expectancy in the United States, which was 77 years as of 2020, according to the Centers for Disease Control. President Joe Biden is 79 and appears to be in a near constant state of befuddlement. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is 82, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer is almost 83, and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn will turn 82 in July.
Party of the future!
