Senator Schumer’s Shutdown by The Elephant's Child

The West Wing of the White House is dark today, Sunday, January 21, 2018.

If you call the White House public comment phone line, you will get an unusual message.

“Thank you for calling the White House,” a woman says in the recording. “Unfortunately, we cannot answer your call today. Congressional Democrats are holding government funding, including funding for our troops and other national security priorities, hostage to an unrelated immigration debate. Due to this obstruction, the government is shut down. In the meantime, you can leave a comment at http://www.whitehouse.gov, forward-slash contact. We look forward to taking your calls as soon as the government reopens.”

The number for the comment line is: 202-456-1111.

Thanks to  the Examiner’s Kelly Cohen for calling this to our attention.
