Michelle Obama’s twice-extended vacation in Hawaii is beginning to anger area residents who feel her presence is a burden.
The first lady recently decided to stay in Hawaii this week to celebrate her 50th birthday with Oprah Winfrey at the media mogul’s 12-bedroom mansion on Maui.
But Oprah’s neighbors aren’t excited about Michelle’s visit. The burdensome security checkpoints along neighboring roads are keeping customers away from local small business and many business owners are complaining they can’t even stock their shelves because supply trucks are barred from traveling on roads near Oprah’s mansion.
The owners of two local businesses, Goble’s Flower Farm and Grandma’s Maui Coffee, told reporters that sales are significantly lower this week and employees can’t even get to the establishments because of the road blocks.
Local residents complained they weren’t even notified in advance about the road closures.
Needless to say, neighbors are telling Michelle Obama to leave Hawaii and GO HOME.
