Donald Trump’s decision to spend the weekend at his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey caused a major traffic jam today — at rush hour — as the Lincoln Tunnel was shut down to accommodate his motorcade:
Trump is driving to New Jersey and Lincoln Tunnel is shut down for his motorcade at 5 p.m. on a Friday.

The best thing is that this won’t cost him politically — at all:
I'd say this will cost him support in NYC if he keeps this up then again, NYC isn't exactly his political base https://t.co/AqPPkHzE5c

And it might just help him:
If Trump had made "I will annoy New York City dwellers semi-constantly" part of his platform, coulda been a landslide https://t.co/ti36U6J5ed

As for New Yorkers, they’re pissed!
@becket why doesn't he just fucking fly his chopper?

Prime example of Donald Trump's presidency ruining my life: the Lincoln tunnel was shut down for his motorcade and now I'm late to work

Of course all that noise/disruption was Trump's motorcade. Shutting down Lincoln Tunnel at rush hour. Making Christie so proud!

Hang in there! At best it’s just another 4 years of this!
