Michelle Obama

Oprah's Neighbors Pissed

Over FLOTUS' Hawaii Vacation

1/8/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

What does it matter as long as Michelle is happy ...

All those morons who cried about Bush going to Texas....where he actually worked and never put out his neighbors. Quite the opposite, his neighbors (Cindy Sheehan) tried to put him out. I don't care if Obama vacays, but could he maybe try to do his job while he's in Hawaii, or Washington, or New York, or up Beyonce's ass.
The O's choose to do this every.single.time in Hawaii. Then they clog up air traffic around Camp David, scare the **** out of people with low fly-bys in NYC. Please, someone, suggest Moscow to these fools.
Like his hero FDR, I guess Obama is too good for Camp Hoover? A place where he would not bother air traffic or auto traffic whatsoever. In other words, go hide in the woods, it'll solve a lot of issues!

Lol@ everyone bitching about the BUSINESS owners complaining. I bet if you had a business that was all but put to a stop during a FLOTUS visit you would be singing a different tune. Also to the morons who say "It is clear, Oprah has no neighbors" Do you have ANY idea of the huge amount of area the secret service closes off with road blocks in order to protect an area the POTUS and FLOTUS are in. Geez, get with the program.

Just My Opinion    

Yeah, it isn't like Obama care will kick in for those losing customers and what income they take in. More easy for those that are rich, but for those that depend on their stores for income, and to make ends meet, has every right to be pissed off.

Jeeezz...We can always count on Harvey Levin's TMZ to come up with some critical snark about anything, even someone's vacation in Hawaii. Sometimes TMZ is just a boring drag.
