Thanks a lot piss poor POTUS!
Government Shutdown Continues
The government shutdown is in full effect and it’s impacting national museums and parks as expected. The National Museum of African-American History and Culture tweeted that it was closed and will only post operating status messages during the closure.
The national parks are also reporting that they’re struggling to handle trash and waste during the shutdown. The open-air parks are still remaining open but with limited staff members and park rangers. Vistors are reporting overflowing toilets and trash piled high.
The National Parks Service is also warning visitors that if they enter they’re doing so at their own risk.
“Any entry onto NPS property during this period of federal government shutdown is at the visitor’s sole risk,” the park service said this week.
The partial federal shutdown has been going on since December 22, 800,000 federal employees have been furloughed or working without pay and won’t be paid again until the government reopens.
