Michelle Obama

Oprah's Neighbors Pissed

Over FLOTUS' Hawaii Vacation

Michelle Obama
's visit to Oprah's Hawaii compound has crippled the neighborhood around O's home ... and some neighbors are pissed.

Some of the residents and business people around Oprah's palatial 12-bedroom Maui estate -- where Michelle recently retreated to spend the last few days of her 40s --  are all telling the same story ... Michelle's visit is making day-to-day life almost impossible.

The owner of nearby Goble's Flower Farm tells us ... security checkpoints have been set up on the roads ... blocking customers from shopping there.

Other business owners complain they can't stock their shelves because road closures have screwed up their deliveries.

A worker at Grandma's Maui Coffee tells us, employees are arriving VERY late to work. 

And fun is also affected.  Recreational areas (like hiking trails) have also been shut down.

Not good for Oprah's relations with her neighbors, which have already been strained from her generally imposing presence.  But it's nothing that a good cocktail party can't solve.

Those lame ducks will be doing all sorts of annoying things for the next few years. What do they care? They did a shizzload of annoying things for four straight years and they still got suckers to reelect them.

Because one of the most reviled (not my opinion, check the internet comments) presidents wife needs protection? It is the secret services job to know how many times that lady takes a whizz, let alone be about town. Glad she is looked after.

Holy crap, Harvey, we all know you hate Obama, but this is just pathetic. Get over covering politics and go back to being the televised version of Star.

Really ? This is a surprise to anyone? The Obamas from day one have only been about themselves. Shutting down everything from the White house tours to the Blue Angels in air shows. Former aides have stood aghast at their selfishness and complete lack of care for their fellow Americans. I voted for him the first time but realized quickly he was in way over his head. Truly the most classless selfish people to ever live in the White House.

This private first Lady 'vacation' cost the taxpayer millions. Such a vacation on an exotic location costs the taxpayer much more then a trip to a location with a - security wise - well build infrastructure. There is NO sensible reason for a first Lady, who hasn't been elected BTW, not to spend her vacation on the premise of cost minimization.
-
Michelle is a luxury girl, that's the reason, and she thinks, she deserved it!

You people complaing are idiots. The protocol of the secret service has been in place for decades. It has nothing to do with the 1st. You act like she is to stay locked up in the white house 4 years. It's ridiculous and unreasonable. These neighbors are some of the wealthiest and feel entitled. They're your 1%ers. Goof grief.

I'm certainly no fan of either Mrs Obama or Oprah but get the fcuk over it TMZ. No matter who she is, she's still the First Lady of the United States, like it or not. I'm not saying you should respect her personally but for God sake leave it alone for a while. Big fcuking deal, she's hanging with Oprah ... what the fcuk is so goddamn surprising about that? It's not like Oprah lives on a nice little street; she lives in a fcuking mansion ... and not what you have depicted there ... do you really think her neighbors are pissed off? You are doing everything you can to deflect from your baby girl Kimmie being a worthless, despicable excuse for a woman who has given birth and who obviously detests her spawn. Good try but I ain't buying it.

It's EVERYTHING that a good ****tail party can't solve. Clearly the neighbors aren't impresse. They're trying to live their real lives, not the romantic lives that Oprah and Michelle live in. Meeting a celebrity is fun for a bit, but they become stale and obnoxious like anyone else, when they linger like a bad fart. Orca and Predator are no exceptions.
