Going To California

Looks like President Trump is in California today.  Really?  The state voted 2-1 against him.  Didn't he get the message?

He's coming out here to inspect border wall prototypes.  Fine--sounds like he'll be down around San Diego, where they're a bit more conservative.  But it also turns out he'll be in Beverly Hills for a fundraiser.

Not acceptable.  President Obama used to come here regularly, and when he did, the impossible Los Angeles traffic became even worse.  Large swathes of the city were all but shut down to let the President move about without hindrance.  People still talk about how they were stuck in crosstown traffic for hours.

To add insult to injury, the visits were generally for purposes of raising money, not to perform any significant presidential task.

Many votes are concerned whether or not Trump will keep his promise to build the wall.  I really don't care.  However, I will vote for any presidential candidate who promises never to come to Los Angeles.

You forgot to add a link for crosstown traffic.

Let me note I'll take Jimi Hendrix over Led Zeppelin any day.

I'm not a huge fan of either: Zeppelin and Hendrix each have a few songs I love, and a lot that are massively overplayed. Still, "Going to California" is head and shoulders above most Led Zeppelin tracks: it's not overblown, and it's not any longer than it needs to be.
