Over the weekend, a big group of Democrat lawmakers went to Puerto Rico for some event with corporate lobbyists as the partial government shutdown continues. They were basically partying at a luxury resort. The Washington Examiner noted that rooms at the resort they were staying at cost well over $400 a night.
President Trump made a funny statement about the situation this morning.

The optics on this are pretty bad for the Democrats. They’re refusing to negotiate a deal to end the shutdown with President Trump while a large portion of them are in Puerto Rico partying on a beach with lobbyists.
Remember when the Democrat Party was supposed to be against big corporate interests? What a lie that was. They’re all stooges of big corporate donors and do their bidding.
