During this recent government shutdown, the White House updated their voicemail message to state: “Thank you for calling the White House,” the recorded voice said. “Unfortunately, we cannot answer your call today because congressional Democrats are holding government funding, including funding for our troops and other national security priorities, hostage to an unrelated immigration debate...”

Why is it that most pronouncements from this White House sound like they were written by a fourth-grader? No insult intended to fourth-graders.

Last I knew, the White House belongs to the citizens of the United States. This low and petty behavior should be beneath the Office of the President.
