There’s a bit of a traffic jam at the top of Thompson Road in Upcountry Maui. Police cars and black SUVs are turning traffic around near the Maui estate of Oprah Winfrey. That’s because Oprah is entertaining a VIP. Michelle Obama, America’s first lady.
Maui TV News contributor Krystal Haywood and her fiancé were hiking in the area when Maui Police asked them to leave the area. An apparent paparazzo was trying to take pictures with “…a very long lens…” on his camera, according to Haywood. It was from this person that Haywood learned of Oprah’s very important house guest.
The First Family – apparently minus mom – left O’ahu this morning on Air Force One to return to frigid Washington, D.C. No details were released in advance of the first lady’s visit, and likely will not be released soon. Still – kinda’ fun to have a commotion like this on Maui without tragedy being involved.
