Critical government sites closed; Michelle’s Let’s Move immune

After a weekend of public pressure and public outcry, the U.S. Department of Justice is reportedly bringing its AMBER Alert website back online sometime on Monday.

For the first full-week of the shutdown, the government took down its AMBER Alert website for lack of funding, but Michelle Obama’s “drink water, eat vegetables” Let’ website remained up and running.

According to Twitchy, the following is what was posted on the website when it was offline:

But Michelle Obama’s Let’ site remained operational:

And conservatives spent the weekend fuming online:

Now, the Guardian reported the DOJ is bringing the AMBER Alert site back online.

It’s important to note that the actual AMBER Alert program was never interrupted, only the website was shutdown. However, the website offered information on missing children that many Americans used to stay updated.

Some of the tweets over the weekend were published by Twitchy:
