An angry driver tried to cut into President Trump’s motorcade and made obscene gestures after being pulled over by police.
The scene unfolded Saturday as Trump was returning to Mar-A-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, after a round of golf. The incident is reminiscent of a similar episode earlier this month, when a cyclist stalked Trump’s motorcade and flipped the bird at the president.
The latest incident underscores just how much extra work anti-Trumpers cause for the U.S. Secret Service and local police whenever the president goes anywhere. While Trump-haters gleefully celebrate such confrontations, keep in mind that taxpayers foot the bill for all that extra security.
“A man in a red van attempted to cut into the motorcade. Local law enforcement pulled over the vehicle, where the driver made obscene gestures and screamed several expletives,” according to a White House pool report.
In early November, a Virginia woman named Juli Briskman followed Trump’s motorcade on her bike in Sterling, Virginia, while flipping the bird at the back of the president’s limo. “He was passing by and my blood just started to boil,” Briskman told reporters during her 15 minutes of fame.

Briskman was later fired for violating her employer’s social media policy after she used the viral photo as her profile picture on Facebook and Twitter. Karma, baby!
President Trump is wrapping up his Thanksgiving holiday weekend in Florida before heading back to Washington. On Saturday, he golfed with PGA icon Jack Nicklaus and his son Gary.
The day before, Trump hit the links with golfing legend Tiger Woods and the current No. 1 player in the world, Dustin Johnson (photo below).

Golf Digest magazine recently crowned President Trump “the best-ever golfer president.” The billionaire has a 2.8 handicap, making him one of the best golfers in Washington, D.C., said Golf Digest.
“Sixteen of the past 19 presidents have played golf, but Trump is the best and most passionate golfer among them,” the magazine wrote.
