Hollywood Blames Trump for Government Shutdown: ‘We are all Dreamers’


The federal government shutdown – aka the Trump Shutdown or the Schumer Shutdown, depending on your perspective – continues apace, as Senators head into yet another day of talking, arm-twisting and finger-pointing as they work to strike a deal.

The shutdown went into effect at midnight after the Senate couldn’t get to the necessary 60 votes to pass the House funding bill. Celebrities took to Twitter Friday night and Saturday to blame President Donald Trump for the government shutdown, after the midnight deadline to pass a continuing resolution came and went without a bipartisan deal.

Some of Hollywood’s biggest names, however, were quick to pin the shutdown on Trump and Republican lawmakers.

The reason the government shutdown is that Trump and his team have an ideological commitment to allowing fewer black and brown people into the country. #TrumpShutdown #TrumpIsARacist

In just one year as a “business man” Trump bankrupted three casinos and a hotel (1991-92).
In just one year as a “president” #TrumpShutdown the entire federal government.
This guy is incredibly efficient at failing.

Even with majorities in the House and Senate, Blabbermouth Don was unable to broker a deal to keep the government running. He is hopelessly out of his depth. Ineptitude, thy name is Trump. #TrumpShutdown

90% of Americans are in favor of extending the CHIP program. 90% of Americans are in favor of DACA. 90% of Americans are in favor of universal background checks. Here’s a novel idea: Congress, try representing Americans.
