What happens when a couple of Democrats show up at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California? Well, the first thing is that they don’t go inside, because admission is $16 per person, and what sane Democrat would spend $16 to honor Ronald Reagan’s memory? But the outside of the Library is very telling, and of course they let you in the gift shop, because Republicans. We took photos that tell the full sordid story, so read on after the jump:

They let a black guy into the gift shop to pose with George Washington?

They let his black wife in too? Somebody call security!

We finished the visit with a Pepsi from Mexico that we smuggled in. Hopefully, Republicans would again turn a blind eye at Reagan’s granting amnesty to an “illegal.”
