The left has always believed that the rules do not apply to them. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is a shining example of that arrogance. While the country is wrestling with a government shutdown because the left won’t deal on sealing the border and providing national security to the United States as a sovereign nation… Pelosi is vacationing at a five-star resort in Hawaii and living it up with wealthy elitists who just don’t give a crap in reality about anything or anyone besides themselves.
Nancy Pelosi is enjoying the gov't shutdown from a luxury resort in Hawaii after complaining @realDonaldTrump only wanted the break so he could "golf more" in Florida. Meanwhile, the President is still in DC working hard.

Pelosi is staying at the Fairmont Orchid resort on Hawaii’s Big Island. A standard room at the luxury resort starts at just under $1,000 per night and accommodation can cost nearly $5,000 per night for the presidential suite. Any bets on what Pelosi will choose for a room? The oceanfront resort boasts six restaurants, a golf course and a “Spa Without Walls” where a couple’s massage runs as high as $569. Meanwhile, Democrat aides and attendants struggle to even find a place to live or eat while Pelosi celebrates her return to power.
From The Daily Caller:
The House passed a stopgap funding bill on Dec. 20 that included $5.7 billion to construct a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, however, with a 51-seat majority, Republicans fell short of the necessary 60 votes needed to send it to President Donald Trump’s desk for signature. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer vowed to kill the legislation on arrival in the Senate, and consequently, a government shutdown has been in effect since funding expired Dec. 21.
Pelosi and Schumer issued a joint statement on Christmas Eve accusing Trump of “plunging the country into chaos,” and holding the president solely responsible for the shutdown.
Trump, however, canceled his trip to Florida so that he would be available in D.C. in the event that Congress would reach a deal to fund the government.
“I am all alone (poor me) in the White House waiting for the Democrats to come back and make a deal on desperately needed Border Security,” Trump tweeted. “At some point the Democrats not wanting to make a deal will cost our Country more money than the Border Wall we are all talking about. Crazy!”
First lady Melania Trump and son Barron returned to the White House so the family could spend Christmas together.
All of this while Pelosi suffers in Hawaii with the rich and powerful who all party it up while claiming President Trump went off his meds. He’s the only thing standing in their way of complete Marxist control of our government now. That should be painfully obvious to Americans. Pelosi has referred to a border wall as “immoral” and has reportedly walked away from further shutdown negotiations. That’s leadership for you and typical of leftists.
“The Administration understands this crisis and made a reasonable, common-sense solution to Democrats five days ago – we’ve not received a single response,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement. “The President and his team stayed in Washington over Christmas hoping to negotiate a deal that would stop the dangerous crisis on the border, protect American communities, and re-open the government.”
Democrats have pledged not to appropriate a single dollar towards funding the wall and Pelosi further promised to put forth a funding bill that does not include any of Trump’s demands when she assumes the speakership in January. Trump is now saying that he may seal the border, cut trade deals and cut aid unless the wall is funded. He’s not backing down and this is going to get very painful, very fast. But Pelosi will suffer through it in Hawaii… how noble.
