A group of kids who have been terrified by New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s propaganda got a lesson in government.
The group of kids, organized by adults, approached California Sen. Dianne Feinstein and implored her to support the Green New Deal.
But the exchange did not go as they expected as the senator torched them on reality.

“We are trying to ask you to vote yes on the Green New Deal,” one of the kids said to Feinstein.
“Some scientists have said that we have 12 years to turn this around,” another terrified kid being used by adults said.
“Well it’s not going to get turned around in 10 years. What we can do is put ourselves,” Feinstein said before an adult interrupted her and insisted that she had to act now.
That is when Feinstein got testy with the group of kids telling sitting senator what to do.
Do you agree with Feinstein on this?
“I’ve been doing this for 30 years. I know what I’m doing Feinstein said. “You come in here and you say it has to be my way or the highway. I don’t respond to that,” she said.
“I got elected. I just ran. I was elected by almost a million vote plurality and I know what I’m doing,” she said.
“So you know, maybe people should listen a little bit,” she said, realizing she was talking to adults and not the kids they were hiding behind.
And then came the most hilarious part of the exchange with the group of know-it-all kids.
“I hear what you’re saying but we’re the people who voted for you,” one of the kids said.
“You are supposed to listen to us. That’s your job,” she said.
Feinstein asked the youngster her age and found out that she was 16-years-old.
“Well you didn’t vote for me,” Feinstein said hilariously.
“It doesn’t matter. We’re the ones who are going to be impacted,” one of the kids trained in their talking points said.
Feinstein attempted to explain to one of the adults what her plans are for working on the issue but she did not want to hear it.
“Any plan that does not take bold, transformative action is not going to be what we need,” the woman said.
“Well you know better than I do,” Feinstein clapped back. “So, I think one day you should run for the Senate and then you do it your way.”
Conservatives loved the new Sen. Feinstein.

Using kids as political props and then clutching your pearls when a senator doesn’t bow down to their demands (which was obviously your media strategy going in) is kind of a dick move. https://t.co/RE54dDuUSo
