I was very fortunate to have been in charge of the part of the motorcade behind the secret service portion many times, and several times in the Police car that is always in the front during events with President H.W. Bush.

We were on the second hole at Tierra Del Sol on Tuesday when two Marine One helicopters and four or five Osprey aircraft flew right over us. Very loud and impressive. Looks like there will be troops supporting this visit, as well as Secret Service.

I saw those on my way to see Peanut Butter Falcon at the Rialto on Tuesday. They were flying around in some kind of pattern.

Did all of the school busses and large tractor trailer around Spanish Springs Town Square have anything to do with this?

Fox Channel 35 on Good-day Orlando had a crew at Spanish Springs. I don't think they really researched what was happening before going on the air. There was about 50 people in front of the Rialto, and they said people are lining up to see the President. I think it was a crowd to go to the movies. Why would the Sharon crowd be over blocking the theater entrance at 9:00 AM when he doesn't speak until 1:30? They didn't even show the Sharon.

They did show in front of Toojays about 5 protestors holding signs, said they were from the Villages Democratic Club. They said there will be a jumbo screen in the square and you can see the speech outside if you don't have an invite.

Are they (security) keeping the crowds in the square thin? I'm watching the webcam of the square and now (at 12:38PM) it looks like there are bigger crowds during Happy Hour when Johnny Wild is playing. I expected wall to wall people.

When it is an invite only in a place like The Sharon why would anybody waste their time to crowd around and try to get a glimpse of Trump.

Like all the major performers he will arrive and depart away from the possible masses.

There is no amassing of crowds as there will be nothing/nobody to see.

My guess would be if Trump were to have one of his rally time appearances he, like Bush did, would attract huge crowds. There would be a real reason to attend and participate. I also think the invite only venue was a poor choice for The Villages. And I am not sure whose preference that reflects.....Trumps or....?....

Anyway the lucky few will represent the wishes of the rest of us.
