While the federal government shutdown lingers, national parks remain open even if there’s no one cleaning their increasingly gross bathrooms. This lead one gubernatorial spouse to take matters of all kinds literally into his own hands.
This is just one of the many reasons I love my husband, Dan. He visited Mt. Hood National Forest Sno-Park, and like many national parks across the country, found it a mess due to the partial government shutdown. He cleaned the bathrooms—and sent the bill to President Trump. pic.twitter.com/GvGSZAkoSQ

Yes, Oregon’s first husband, Dan Little, spent some time last week at Mount Hood National Forest cleaning up bathrooms. He then sent President Trump an invoiced bill for $28 which, frankly, is an incredibly kind bill.
Judging by the looks of the bathroom and the time and effort that Brown probably had to put in to cleaning them, $28 is not nearly enough (and maybe something to consider in working out raises for workers who do this on the regular when the government’s not shut down).
Of course, this is just one series of bathrooms in one park in one state while, apparently, the national flow of poop runneth over in other locations across the country.
It’s not quite as bad as the idiots damaging the Joshua trees at Joshua Tree National Park, but it’s still pretty bad and there’s currently no end to Poopageddon in sight.
