    Feinstein very concerned.

    She's concerned that a nominee for the Supreme Court respects the principles laid out in the US Constitition.

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) offered her interpretation of the Constitution at Monday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing for Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch. In her opening remarks, the Democratic senator said she was deeply troubled by the nominee’s identifying himself as a constitutional “originalist.”

    She's also concerned that he's a strict constructionist.

    Whats next?

    All anti-Americans would be concerned about such a thing.

    Justice Ruth Ginsburg denigrated our Constitution a ways back. Can you imagine a sitting SCOTUS judge saying that publicly. We live in strange times.

    Sen. Feinstein is a liberal and as such she hates the Constitution. She wants to pretend it's a living document and clearly states that abortion is a right and free speech isn't. She agrees with Barack Obama that it's just a piece of parchment.

    It's hard to imagine that we have actually come to a place where respect for the constitution and the method required to amend it are considered "issues of concern" for a US Senator.

    That strategy may come back to haunt them.

    Liberals BTW do not hate the constitution, that's your team.

    Conservatives hate the 1st amendment, it keeps them from discriminating against people they don't like.

    They hate the 14th amendment because it grants birthright citizenship and let more brown people into their country.

    They hate the 16th amendment because it grants Congress the power to collect income tax.

    They hate the 17th, they want the states to pick senators, not the people.

    A decent portion of the evangelicals want to repeal the 21st so the 18th will be back in effect. Prohibition baby!

    They want religion in public schools, and they are likely to get it now.

    In fact, the only portion of the Constitution that I see conservatives supporting without fail across the board is the 2nd.
    You better hope life gives you some water and sugar too or that's gonna be some crappy lemonade.

    I am shocked that she is concerned.
    It is amazing to me the Dems haven't and can't seem to figure out why Trump was elected. Why they lost the middle Blue Voters. Here is one big reason. The BIG TENT PARTY isn't so big anymore. Middle Blue Collar dems are not accepted because they don't agree with the left wing. They are attacked and ridiculed in today's Dem party. One is not allowed to disagree. The whole selling point of the Dem Party was the ability to differ. Not anymore.
