On Sunday, Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator and original star of “Hamilton,” vented his fury at President Trump after Trump had targeted Democrats visiting Puerto Rico and seeing a performance of the musical while the federal government was partially shut down.
Miranda tweeted, “Your occasional reminder that our current president lies as easy as you and I breathe air. Every day, all day, reflexively.”

Every day, all day, reflexively.
It seems that many Democrats were in Puerto Rico funded by a lobbying group to show the despair the island faces so they can fight Trump. At least that is what they are saying.
President Trump has roundly criticized the Democrats for their jaunt to Puerto Rico; on Saturday he tweeted: “Democrats should come back to Washington and work to end the Shutdown, while at the same time ending the horrible humanitarian crisis at our Southern Border. I am in the White House waiting for you!”
As The Washington Examiner reported, appearing on Fox News’ "Justice with Judge Jeanine” on Saturday, Trump said, "I'd rather see the Democrats come back from their vacation and act. They're not acting, and they're the ones that are holding it up. It would take me 15 minutes to get a deal done, and everybody could go back to work. But I'd like to see them act responsibly, and they're not acting responsibly, and that's it. I'm in the White House, and most of them are in different locations. They're watching a certain musical in a very nice location."
