I read that Trump is flying into Las Vegas today for a rally.

Any of you planning to attend, and if so would you report back as to how it went?

I'd like to know what he says in support of Dennis Hof, the Nevada pimp running for office.

I was wondering about possible traffic stuff and found this article. AF1 lands around 10:50am @ LAS and leaves around 3pm. Suncoast and South Point will be visited.

I'm on my way to the airport now. Looks like we will just miss all the traffic. So far so good.

I overheard someone say it was causing their flight a 50 min delay..

I feel for anyone with connector flights, that has to fly the same day.

Unless a person really gets something out of a POTUS or VP visit to their town, it is never worth it.

Years ago, after busting my ass all week long and wanting to get onto I-84 near Pendleton, the on ramps were blocked for VP Cheney's entourage running in a bubble down the freeway. I had to wait about a half hour to get on the interstate, even in very light traffic. All the Polls should be forced to stay in DC so they don't screw up traffic.

I remember traffic being held while Edwards got a 400 $ haircut. Sheesh.

Now you know how LA felt with
Obama's countless visits there to
kiss the butts of his show biz buds.
It was a total mess.

I saw AF1 on final approach while I was out and about. Awesome airplane.

Where you heading...Australia, Europe, or maybe Tucson? Safe travels. :)

I am fascinated by all that goes into securing AF1 and the presidential limo. So luxurious and crazy secure.
I got a plan, we take all your picks we reverse them like one of those twilight zone episodes where everything is the opposite. You say "black" we go white.

Nowhere special. FYI I missed my flight somehow. They announced it was delayed and so I took my time but it looks like it went off on time(I was like 3 min late) I rerouted and I'll be 4 hours behind my original schedule. No big deal, the casino will wait.

Yes, but how secure is POTUS, really?

One would think that a determined terrorist armed with a Stinger missile or its equivalent could bring AF1 down while it's taking off or on final approach / landing.

For that matter, terroists with a mortar in a van with an open sunroof could lob a couple shells at a target in DC and make a quick getaway.

Not that they should, but they could.
