No I'm at a hotel in Sonora, Texas, resting up while driving back after being in California during the past week. But my wife, kids, and grandkids are in Lake Charles due to a family wedding. The big concern about Dick Head being in Lake Charles was that his presence would screw up routes for getting to the wedding.
Which reminded me of how I hate the way they act like President is a king regardless of who is President. The person is just the Chief Executive of the Executive Branch. No way we should have situations in which airports get shut down, traffic gets all screwed up, etc., because the President is there. The person in the Presidency simply is not that important. We should not be acting like it'd be the end of the world if something happened to them. No roads should be shut down because a President is coming through. They should just ride down the road like anybody else does.
It worked out fine in this case though. Reports are he didn't interfere with getting to the wedding.
And BTW Presidents should not be allowed to go do political things on the public dime. If they want to do campaign rallies they should have to pay for their own travel and their own security.
