UPDATE: President Trump Arrives In Southampton To Attend Private Fundraisers On East End Friday

President Donald Trump's motorcade arrives in Southampton. GREG WEHNER
Aug 11, 2019 9:28 AM

UPDATE: 4:30 p.m.

Curious residents and presidential supporters and protestors waited in the sun for hours at the intersection of Pauls Lane and Halsey Lane in Bridgehampton to see Mr. Trump’s motorcade en route to Mr. Farrell’s residence. Halsey Lane, where Mr. Farrell lives, had been closed off by Southampton Town Police since the morning.

Many bystanders questioned whether Mr. Trump’s route would take him down Mecox Lane instead, an alternate route to the property, and police would not disclose that information.

Police from numerous departments began closing off Pauls Lane to traffic at 2:30 p.m. and Mr. Trump’s motorcade passed through 15 minutes later. The president waved to the group of about 30 bystanders gathered at the intersection as some cheered and others lifted up their protest signs. Mr. Graham was seated beside him.

During the wait, a growing number of people with protest signs joined the crowd. Two friends, Mary Sculley, of East Hampton, and Randy Culpepper, of Bridgehampton, spent the morning riding their bicycles around the neighborhood while wearing “Dump Trump” and “Trump = Racist Pig” signs around their necks.

“I'm just going to wave. It's a friendly protest,” Mr. Culpepper said, when asked what he plans to do when Mr. Trump passes by. “I'd love for him to see this and know that these are not all supporters out here waiting to see him.”

A Bridgehampton family made signs out of ripped up pieces of cardboard with messages about keeping immigrant families together.

Guests began to arrive at Mr. Farrell’s event at around 11 a.m. They parked in a grassy lot on Horsemill Lane, off Mecox Lane, and were shuttled to Mr. Farrell’s house.

UPDATE: 2 p.m.

Around 80 people showed up with signs, flags and anti-Trump attire, such as a white suit that is made to look like it’s covered in blood, at the protest in Water Mill, which ended at about 2 p.m.—well past its scheduled 1:00 p.m. conclusion.

The suit is worn by Richard Darling. The suit addresses violence in the country, especially with the recent shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio which led to a collective loss of 31 people, he said.

“Two days [after his visit to Dayton and El Paso,] he’s out raising money for his next campaign of hatred,” Mr. Darling said.

The protest was organized by local and grass root organizations such as Progressive East End Reformers (PEER), a multi-issue grassroot organization that advocates for racial, social and environmental justice. A similar protest was organized during Mr. Trump’s visit to the East End last year.

“I’d like [the people driving by] to see that the East End is for American values,” Kathyrn Szoka of PEER said. “We want to support our democracy.”

She added: “We are united against hate and in favor of drawing grassroot organizations together to mobilize changes, come 2020.”

This protest was not the first for Lisa Votino, a community organizer, who brought her 6-year-old daughter, Lily.

Her sign addressed the minors kept at migrant detention centers, and read “are we great yet?’” The sign was personal to her, she said, because she volunteered with asylum seekers in Tijuana, Mexico.

“Mr. Trump’s slogan is ‘Make America great again’ and I see nothing great happening right now,” Ms. Votino said. “I see kids in cages, I see logistics, policies and tweets that have real repercussions on the grounds and I’ve been witness to that many times.”

At about 11:45 a.m., speeches were given by a select few, including Ms. Szoka and Rabbi Jan Uhrbach of Conservative Synagogue of the Hamptons.

“We are facing a moral crisis in our country that is dangerous, obviously physically, as evidenced by the recent shootings and all violence in the country, but also spiritually to the soul of the country,” Rabbi Uhrbach said. “All spiritual leaders should speak out from a place of faith on moral issues.”

Though many of those driving past the protest on Montauk Highway honked and gave a thumbs up in approval, some disagreed with the protesters stance, yelling back sayings such as “Trump 2020!”

Protester Sandy Mancini affirmed that everyone at the protest remained respectful, expressing their freedom of speech. She said that the crowd “was great.”

UPDATE: 1:08 p.m.

Multiple police agencies, including the State Police, Suffolk County Police Department and Southampton Town Police Department, blocked off all traffic along Sunrise Highway and County Road 39 on Friday in an effort to protect President Donald Trump as he arrived in Southampton Town on Friday.

Mr. Trump’s motorcade passed by Hill Station Road at approximately 12:15 p.m., and turned off of County Road 39 to head up Shrubland Road toward Stephen Ross’s home in Southampton.

Small groups of supporters and protestors lined County Road 39 in anticipation of seeing Mr. Trump drive by, even though his vehicle turned off before reaching them.

Once Mr. Trump passed by the blocked off roads, they were opened back up to regular traffic, though residual backups persisted to the east and west of the temporary closure.

UPDATE: noon

President Trump’s motorcade left the Westhampton airport at about noon, heading to his first stop in Southampton.

UPDATE: 11:55 a.m.

At the Water Mill demonstration, about 60 protesters gathered in opposition to the president, carrying signs and vocalizing their opposition..

“We live in the real Hamptons, all the grassroot people, and our response is what you see right here,” Kathyrn Szoka of PEER said. “A large group of people are united to say ‘We support true American values’ and that was the reason we wanted to stand up as East-Enders and really be united in that.”

“This is what democracy looks like,” was one of the slogans that commuters heard as they drove past the windmill on Montauk Highway. Not all drivers were happy to hear and see the protesters.

“Trump 2020, four more years,” a man yelled at the protesters as he drove past them in his vehicle.

There is a police presence and crossing guard at the event.

UPDATE: 11:40 a.m.

Air Force One landed at Francis S. Gabreski Airport in Westhampton at about 11:40 a.m. The President was expected to greet visitors and dignitaries in attendance there.

Original Story:

President Donald Trump is scheduled to arrive at Francis S. Gabreski Airport in Westhampton Friday morning to attend two big-dollar fundraising events in the Hamptons.

Air Force One will land at 11 a.m., according to his itinerary published on Conservative Daily News, and Mr. Trump will then travel by motorcade to billionaire real estate developer Stephen Ross’s waterfront home in Southampton, as reported by several news sites.

He will participate in a private roundtable with several supporters in the home of Mr. Ross, owner of the Miami Dolphins and Equinox Fitness Clubs and founder of The Related Companies. From there, at 1:20 p.m., Mr. Trump will head via motorcade to local luxury builder Joe Farrell’s Bridgehampton estate, about 8 miles away, the itinerary states.

At the Farrell residence, Mr. Trump will give a one-hour speech and join Donald Trump Jr., Kimberly Guilfoyle, U.S. Representative Lee Zeldin, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Republican National Committee chairpersons, and others. The itinerary states that he will depart at 3:05 p.m. back to Gabreski Airport, where he will then head to his home in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Law enforcement officials said shortly before the president’s scheduled arrival time that he is running 45 minutes late.

While Mr. Trump shakes hands with the wealthy, a peaceful protest will take place at the Water Mill Green, near the windmill, on the corner of Route 27 and Halsey Lane, organized by Long Island political activism groups. Based on his schedule, the presidential motorcade will likely not pass the protest.

Why no pictures or videos of supporters along the way? Right, it doesn’t fit the narrative. Anyway, I hope Trump took in alot of money today.

But we're clear that two $200 donations, whether to a candidate or to a PAC, will still be reported to the FEC, right?

Or, in the FEC's own words: "A contribution from an individual is itemized on Schedule A, supporting Line 11(a)(i), when it:

exceeds $200 or

aggregates over $200 when added to other contributions received from the same source during the election cycle."

Nah, the Senate represents the states. That's why you hear people complaining that a person in Wyoming gets more representation in the Senate than a person in New York.

Or, from the Senate's own website: "two senators represent each state."

By Po Boy (4637), Water Mill on Aug 12, 19 10:15 AM
I agree with you. I also think gun-control laws are more likely to pass in the House than the Senate because Senators represent states while the House represents population.

I wouldn't think that's such a controversial point.
By Fore1gnBornHBgrown (7302), HAMPTON BAYS on Aug 12, 19 10:20 AM
Before 1913 Senators were chosen by their state legislatures. The Founding Fathers believed that since the Senators represented the state, the state legislature should elect them. The 17th Amendment to the Constitution requires Senators to be elected by a direct vote of those she or he will represent.

When you say Trump "never did it" but then bring up accusations about someone else, are you willfully ignoring the many accusations against Trump or simply ignorant of them?
By Fore1gnBornHBgrown (7302), HAMPTON BAYS on Aug 15, 19 1:12 PM
Can't the same thing be said of the many accusations against Hillry and Bill? Are you simply ignorant of them (and a hypocrite)?
By Po Boy (4637), Water Mill on Aug 15, 19 1:25 PM
Please point me to where I defended Bill Clinton against accusations of sexual assault.

If there are any allegations that Hillary committed sexual assault, I am absolutely ignorant of them.

Diseased said Trump "never did it" despite there being many accusations.

I never said Clinton "never did it" in the face of many accusations, ergo there is no hypocrisy at play.
By Fore1gnBornHBgrown (7302), HAMPTON BAYS on Aug 15, 19 1:52 PM

The same can be said of Bill. I'm ignorant of any sexual assault allegations against Hillary.

I'm not defending either of them so where's the hypocrisy?

I wouldn't know, but feel free to elaborate. In fact, use as much of your time as you want attacking a failed presidential candidate, I have zero objections.

None of the accusations were proven to be true. So yeah...he never did it. Most, if not all of the accusers, look like they just took of their pink vagina hats off...especially that last one with the Hitler hairdo. Feminazis with an agenda. And Hillary didn’t have to sexually assault anymore. Her complicity in regards to her husbands pedophilia is enough for me. Speaking of Slick Willie.

Does the FBI line item not read exactly: "Blunt objects (clubs, hammers, etc.)"?

In 2017, do the FBI stats not show 467 people were killed with “blunt objects,” like hammers and clubs and 403 were killed with rifles?

Are you saying hammers and clubs aren't blunt objects or are you simply being semantically obtuse - yet again?

Thrown is the past participle of throw which is defined as "1. propel (something) with force through the air by movement of the arm and hand. 2. cause to enter suddenly a particular state or condition."

Throne is defined as "a ceremonial chair for a sovereign, bishop or similar figure"
