"Who's shutdown is this? The 'party in power,' that's who. PERIOD," Alyssa Milano tweets.
A United States government shutdown went into effect Friday at midnight -- and Hollywood is livid.
On the one-year anniversary of President Donald Trump's inauguration, Republican senators failed to reach the necessary 60 votes to pass a bill that would have funded the government for 30 days. While five Democrats voted with the Republicans to push a spending bill vote, four Republicans voted with Democrats.
The debate over what to do next continued into Saturday, which forced Trump to blow off his weekend trip to Mar-a-Lago, where he was planning on celebrating his first year in office.
"This is the one-year anniversary of my presidency, and the Democrats wanted to give me a nice present," Trump tweeted early Saturday morning.
But don't worry, Mr. President. Some of Hollywood's finest threw you quite the party on Twitter. See some of their tweets below.
This is disgusting. Trading one group of children for another. While giving billions in tax cuts to the super wealthy. There is another way. Do the right thing for the people that are here today and stop creating boogie men out of those who may one day come. #TrumpShutdown https://t.co/H5ScufoCrv— Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) January 19, 2018

Not shocking news, but a bit of color: GOP source tells me Trump is furious about the shutdown, which is messing up his anniversary and keeping him from going to Mar-a-Lago for his party.— Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid) January 20, 2018

“We are approaching a shutdown because Mexico did not pay for the wall.”
This is not Chuck Schumer’s shutdown. This is not Mitch McConnell’s shutdown. This is Donald Trump and Stephen Miller’s shutdown. This is the result of a confused, chaotic White House.— Joe Scarborough (@JoeNBC) January 20, 2018
Oh god what happens now is it the purge— josh groban (@joshgroban) January 20, 2018
It takes a certain level of incompetence to trigger a shutdown of the government when you control both houses of Congress and the White House. And yet here we are.— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) January 20, 2018
“I will cause the biggest shutdowns. Yuge shutdowns. We’ll shut things down so much, you’ll think we never were even open to begin with.” #TrumpShutdown— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) January 20, 2018
Trump is telling allies Democrats caused the shutdown but that he will be blamed, a source close to the White House confirms to CNN.— Jim Acosta (@Acosta) January 20, 2018
Republicans ploy to blame democrats for shutdown so they have a shot at #Midterms2018— John Leguizamo (@JohnLeguizamo) January 20, 2018

OMG… wait to you hear the nervous breakdown Trump has tomorrow on Twitter over what Chuck Schumer just said about him on the Senate floor after the #TrumpShutDown— Billy Baldwin (@BillyBaldwin) January 20, 2018

In just the past two days Michael Wolff intimated Trump & Nikki Haley are having an affair, a porn star said Trump asked her to spank his bottom with a Forbes Magazine, Glenn Simpson accused Trump of money-laundering & cavorting with Russian mobsters & the government shutdown.— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) January 20, 2018
This Presidency is immunizing us to scandal.— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) January 20, 2018
Btw, I have little reason to believe the Nikki Haley stuff just because Wolff intimated it. But it DOES seem the Stormy Daniels stuff is legit & she seemed to be doing it because Trump was promising to get her on Celebrity Apprentice, which is definitely “casting couch” behavior.— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) January 20, 2018
And obviously the shutdown is hugely serious. But so is the continual uncovering of Trump and his team’s business and personal relationships with Russian mobsters. And that story was the most washed over.— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) January 20, 2018

Couldn't prevent a #TrumpShutdown
In just one year as a "business man" Trump bankrupted three casinos and a hotel (1991-92).— Beau Willimon (@BeauWillimon) January 20, 2018
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— Stephen King (@StephenKing) January 20, 2018
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.— Rob Reiner (@robreiner) January 20, 2018
A Republican Senate. A Republican Congress. A Republican President. An American travesty. #TrumpShutdown— Josh Gad (@joshgad) January 20, 2018

The Republicans are shutting down the government in fear of 32 percent of the American people...or less. The big babies. (sorry babies) #TrumpShutdown— Mo Gaffney (@mogaffney) January 20, 2018
Is a shut down like a snow day for a government employee? Can we all just stop paying federal taxes and funnel our money to state and local programs and vulnerable people and institutions?— Jena Friedman (@JenaFriedman) January 20, 2018
