Broadcasters can now air full on nudity on TV thanks to the Trump shutdown

Washington, DC — Broadcasts could soon usher in a Nude Era in American television and it is all thanks to the clown in the White House.

The Federal Communications Commission officially shut down at 5:00 pm EDT today. That means that complaints over nudity on CBS/ABC/NBC/Fox can no longer be filed.

CNet also goes on to say that less than a fifth of the FCC will remain on the job due to the Trump shutdown, which started on December 22, 2018.

Trump has demanded that any resolution to reopen the government includes funding for a German-style border wall on the US-Mexico border.

Democrats, who will take control of the House of Representatives on Thursday, say that a border wall is a non-starter for reopening the government.

While enforcement of the gymnophobic FCC rules will be suspended, one thing that is unaffected by the shutdown is 5G implementation by Verizon and AT&T.
