Today, the President of the United States is visiting and giving a speech in the high school of this tiny town near the Texas border. Later, he will be spending the night in the City which has created a lot of street closures. In The City, people aren't exactly thrilled he's here and they are grumbling about the streets, but in this tiny town they are doing back flips over it and are very, very excited, the President and all the media are in our small town! It's so cute seeing their enthusiasm! They are the ones who get really excited about stuff like that so Presidents should visit out-of-the-way places more often!

When you combine all of the small towns, it's a good amount of people. Maybe not as many as a large urban center like NYC buroughs.
When a president visits one, a sense of solidarity can have a ripple effect.

but when you do it in big cites, people fromt he small towns near by travel to see it.

when he came to my city it was an bother. people got pulled over and questioned. he came at the same time we had an airsoft game. so people in cammo meeting at starbucks before heading out was considered to them suspicious.

last time one came here was in the 1990s for the thruston shooting. i was young so to me it was just exciting to see what we think was the presidents hand waving from his limo on the highway, which was closed down for him, its the main way to get to anywhere in the two cities. so i imagine for working people it sucked.

Yeah but people in small towns don't like to be the ones who always have to go visit. They crave being visited every once in a while.

When you can't even watch a speech a POTUS makes without the media showing people's ridiculous Twitter comments scrolling below the entire time :roll: :roll: :roll:

It's so annoying and distracting. Can't we go back to a time the focus was on the speech, not comments twitter users are making about the speech. I wish I had the option available to tune out those comments scrolling across the bottom of my screen when I watched POTUS speech just now :roll:

I saw it on television and the channel I watched spammed it with the most ridiculous tweets from Twitter. It was distracting. I told them if they do it again, I will simply stop watching them.
