WH Comment Line Now Leaves Message Blaming Dems for Shutdown: Holding Funding ‘Hostage’

Right now if you try to call the White House comment line, you get a message that very directly blames Democrats for the shutdown.

CNN’s Jake Tapper played the audio on this morning’s State of the Union, explaining they checked it out after it circulated on Twitter.

Here’s what the message says:

“Thank you for calling the White House. 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. Due to this obstruction, the government is shut down.”

You can listen above, via CNN.
