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.
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

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.
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.
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.
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.
