The Democrats are partying in Puerto Rico amid the longest government shutdown in US history while President Trump is busy meeting with border patrol agents, trying to secure funding for the wall.
The Gateway Pundit reports:
Thirty Congressional Democrats are currently in Puerto Rico on a winter retreat as the government shutdown goes into its 4th week.
The Dems show they really care about federal workers not getting their paychecks by jet-setting and partying with the cast of Hamilton.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders ripped the Democrats on Sunday in a tweet.
“Democrats in Congress are so alarmed about federal workers not getting paid they’re partying on the beach instead of negotiating a compromise to reopen the government and secure the border,” Sanders said in a tweet Sunday.

On Sunday, the President made a reference to the Dems ‘having fun and not talking,’ however he did not specifically blast them for being in Puerto Rico.
I’m in the White House, waiting. The Democrats are everywhere but Washington as people await their pay. They are having fun and not even talking!

Puerto Ricans should hide their teenage daughters because Bob Menendez is in the house!
Democrat Senator and pervert Bob Menendez was spotted hanging out with a bikini-clad “colleague” on the beach in Puerto Rico three weeks into the shutdown without a care in the world.
The Drudge Report put the Democrats and Menendez on blast Sunday with a searing headline banner.
The Hispanic Caucus of liberal Democrats is holding their retreat at a posh tropical resort while American government workers are suffering.
The event is taking place in a seaside resort where rooms go for $429 a night. Food is being provided.
30 of the Congressional members made the trip.
