With trash cans overflowing at national parks across the country amid the partial government shutdown, two Democratic lawmakers from California made a show of bringing some of the garbage to the White House on Wednesday.

Reps. Jackie Speier and Jared Huffman spent their Saturday alongside volunteers at the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, which is run by the National Park Service, picking up trash. On Wednesday morning, the two House members hauled it to the White House to provide a “reality check” to President Trump about the shutdown’s impact.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Let it never be said that I didn’t give anything to Donald Trump,” Huffman said on Wednesday. “Today I’m bringing boxes of trash from that rainy Saturday in San Francisco to provide a reality check to the president, so that he understands that his political stunt in shutting down the government over the border wall has real world consequences.”

    I think the Democrats have lost control and they should realize that they are not in control of the government. Maybe we should take the trash they’ve deposited and put it in their homes.

    We always knew the Democrats are full of it and this proves it!

    When will these childish imbeciles grow the hell up and act like mature adults that are running a country? They are embarrassing themselves and putting our lives on the line. They need to step outside their comfy box and actually see how the rest of this country lives. I never comment but after today I am beyond disgusted by the left. GROW UP!

    Why don’t the people dump
    MS 13 on their doorsteps and illegals.
    So sick of these corrupt Democrats and their evil ways. They are the party of Hatred.

    Shows you how stupid Democrats in CA are being. They wasted the money by not sending trash to a landfill to make a dumb point. I thought these CA Greenies were for a clean environment. Just another lie.

    I think that California sends trash to DC on a regular basis in the form of their politicians!!! They couldn’t be any trashier than Pelosi, Harris, and Wa wa Waters!!!!!!!!!

    Send the cleanup and disposal bill to their offices…

    Democrats have lost their minds. I didn’t think they could get more crazy than what they have been. I was wrong. Lost all respect for everything and everyone. Something has got to happen to put these train wreck of ppl in their place.

    That is without a doubt the cleanest “trash” I’ve ever seen! Open that cardboard box in the blue bin. Bet it’s empty. Who does this all dolled up in good clothes and coats? If it truly is trash, yah right! I’m betting any trash they picked up didn’t just start with the shutdown.

    You know. To me, these Reps are showing how trashy California is by doing this, both physically and characteristically. Maybe if they didn’t harbor so many illegals to invade their sanctuary state and so many living on the streets, they wouldn’t have so much trash!
