When Trump is in town, he ruins our view! There is nothing we like more than driving along the turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean and looking at the mansions and magnificent landscaping. Last week, as we approached Mir-a-Lago, traffic was detoured. Huge concrete blockades, police vehicles, policemen, armed guards, and the Coastguard on the Intercostal surrounded Trump's residence. We got stuck on not one, but two opened bridges for a total of 19 minutes. He left yesterday, Yahoo, so my husband and I are going to take a ride into Palm Beach to enjoy the sights and stop for lunch. Photo was taken on our return ride home. Thankfully, my husband knows the roads and we enjoyed part of the ride.

Yes no matter where a sitting president stays the security goes up, it is just one of the many issues that having a president around causes. Kennedy ruined the cape in the summer, I am sure Kennebunkport has the same issues when the Bush famaily is in residence. The good news is he doesn't visit there too often.

He also closes Palm Beach International airport. No fun picking up family at the airport on those days.

Be glad that Trump's tweets taunting the North Korean dictator about having a bigger nuclear button didn't provoke Kim Jong Un to press his nuclear button aim at Mar-lago where Trump was vacationing.

Glad it is all over. In the city where I lived this happens when certain communities are out on roads celebrating a feast called Ganesh Chathurthi where they go in procession to immerse statues in the sea accompanied by loud music.

@DianneN I hear it in the new book about him they say it takes a lot of time to get that orange hair styled like that! I thought to myself he WANTS it like that? Also, I think they said it is orange as he dyes it himself and the person said with his money he can afford a salon! he makes me become physically ill

Presidents often mess up the views of those who enjoy those views. All of them should just stay in the White House for their entire term in office. And, Obama can stay out of Chicago too, but that will never happen.
