The government is entering its seventh day of the shutdown and Washington DC is empty. The cowards in Congress fled the scene of the crime, but Trump stayed behind, determined to solve the deadlock.
But Trump cannot do this all alone and the cowards in Congress should get back to DC and get to work, but first, we have to pry Nancy Pelosi from her expensive vacation.
From the Free Beacon: Democratic House leader Nancy Pelosi is spending the government shutdown at a luxury resort in Hawaii, the Washington Free Beacon has learned.
Pelosi, who has put blame squarely on President Donald Trump for the current government shutdown, was spotted Thursday vacationing in Hawaii at the Fairmont Orchid resort, where room accommodations range from $899-a-night for a standard room to $4,899-a-night for the presidential suite.
The resort, on Hawaii’s Big Island, features a golf course, six restaurants, and a 10,000-square-foot oceanfront pool.
It also features a “Spa Without Walls,” where the 110-minute Ali’i Royal Experience is available for $369 and a 50-minute couples massage runs $549, according to the spa menu. While at the spa, guests can snack on a gluten-free grilled prawn summer roll for $19.
Trump canceled his Christmas trip to Florida and remained in the White House, saying on Christmas Eve that he was “waiting for the Democrats to come back and make a deal.” The president left the White House on Christmas to travel to Iraq and meet with American troops stationed overseas.
Trump has been holding work meetings since Congress went into recess, including one with Department of Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on how to fund the administration’s border security plan.
Pelosi, meanwhile, has been speaking to the press. She gave an exclusive interview to USA Today just before Christmas calling Trump a “fear monger.”
“He talked about terrorists coming in over that particular border, which wasn’t so,” Pelosi said. “He’s using scare tactics that are not evidence-based, and it’s wrong.”
It should be noted lest anyone forget that Nancy Pelosi is one if the richest members of Congress and fleeing the crisis she helped cause may very well be a “let them eat cake” moment from she will never recover.
