DAILYKENN.com -- Even far-leftists like Diane Feinstein — age 85 — aren't extreme enough for California's Democrats.
It seems Democrats are determined to douse the Trump fire with more gasoline.
The chasm that divides America between patriots and leftist loons is becoming more obvious.
It's akin to blood letting. The more they drain the closer they come to death's door.
While Trumpsters want to make America great again, far-left Democrat extremists want to make it like Venezuela.

The California Democratic Party snubbed U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein on Saturday by handing its official endorsement and a badly needed boost to state Sen. Kevin de Leon, her longshot Democratic challenger.
In backing de Leon, a majority of the party's 360-member executive board ignored Feinstein's calls to stay neutral in the race. Her allies had warned an endorsement would create an intraparty squabble that could detract from important down-ballot races.
De Leon has long been courting party activists and appealed to those seeking a fresh face and a more progressive senator to fight against President Donald Trump.
"Today's vote is a clear-eyed rejection of politics as usual in Washington, D.C.," de Leon said in a statement after the vote. "We have presented Californians with the first real alternative to the worn-out Washington playbook in a quarter-century."
San Francisco native and former mayor of San Francisco U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein, 85, delivers a speech while hosting a breakfast at the Oakland Marriott City Center on Saturday, July 14, 2018, in Oakland, Cali. The event was part of the 2018 Summer Executive Board Meeting, hosting by the California Democratic Party.
A total of 217 delegates voted for de Leon, of Los Angeles, while 22 cast ballots for Feinstein and 94 voted for no endorsement.
