Everything that happened here is obvious. Even the owner of the landscaping company didn't know what was going on, and wasn't there. (But she does have a merch site she is putting up today!)

The part that gets me - and I figure is Act II in @kleinbloo@'s documentary of the day - is when the advance team drives up, packed into Escalades full of Mackie monitors, cables, promo posters, etc., and sees the gravel driveway... the chainlink fence... the porn store next door...

THAT moment.

That is when the people in the car knew it was over... but THE SHOW MUCH GO ON! So they chugged the last of their venti mocha with light whip and caramel swirls, put on their game faces, and jumped out of their vehicles.

I'm visualizing a Tron-looking musical sequence inspired by the dance scene in The Big Lebowski, as we go into their heads and watch the twisting and machinations... as they try to come up with alternative plans... issue a correction/retraction... realize they can't because The Donald won't be happy with that... as they claw through boxes of excuses to figure out which lie to build a hill on top of... and when they notify the President that this isn't going to be a "big thing" and he doesn't need to attend at all...

What a buncha clowns.
