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.

Do you really think these greedy bitches give a crap? Michelle always puts herself and her vacation plans first.

Well, what do you expect? When "those" people move into a neighborhood it always goes to pot.

Fact: taxpayer money is not used for personal expenses like vacations. Time to turn off Fox News.

I'm sure the neighbors brag about Oprah being their neighbor when they have their own ****tail parties and things aren't so hectic. Give us a break you rich people.

Leave them alone and let the enjoy themselves. I'm sure the neighbors brag about Oprah being their neighbor. As far as you republicans are concerned, go pound sand. You will lose the next election as well given your bad record for hatred.

Oh GOD FORBID we criticize the first black first lady. Jesus people, she shut down public spaces and screwed with people's livelihoods - not for one day, but for many. And not for so not for some political meeting of the minds but for her vacation. That's really inconsiderate and she's being called out - as she should.
I bet if it was a wealthy republican, you'd all be going ballistic about how the 1% is messing with the livelihood of the average Joe's.

She is a no class act. Lots of luck adjusting back to civilian life. No one will move for you after you are out if the WH.
