air space was blocked because of [the Obamas'] plane, so others couldn't get their private jets in.

The hardships that the wealthy have to put up with are beyond us mere mortals imaginings. How do they survive?

I wonder how many insulated honkies the NYPost had to shake down before getting to that pitifully reluctant airspace complaint?

Now these folks know what the folks around Fort Hood had to deal with for years. Poor weekenders, pity them, for they have been inconvenienced and will have to take near public transportation.

They could have made it up, although I completely believe it is a sentiment if not a real quote.

Is it because the were inconvenienced by rich people, or was it because they were rich black people?

So let me make sure I understand this right:

The wealthy of Aspen, who are used to letting their money buy them the right to inconvenience those around them, are pissed off because someone trumped their cash and inconvenienced them?

Kinda awesome.

One witness told us, "Michelle was with two big groups and were in Aspen all weekend. Both girls were skiing, one in blue and one in a purple coat, and black pants. Michelle was in a navy ski suit. There were crowds of security guards dressed in black around them, all parked off the bunny slopes.

The did seem kinda obsessed over color.

I have never seen a black person ski.

Also, the bunny slopes are for pussies.

Yes, I did the bunny slope once, but only once. I was on a black run later that day. I had no business on a black run my first day of skiing, but I made a wrong turn and had no choice.

You learn a lot by falling down. I learned a LOT on my first ski trip.

Aspen is a great place to ski, richie ritch rep and furs notwithstanding. It would suck to have your cool local airport airspace commandeered for some reason.  It is awesome that the Obamas are skiers...I usually don't care about diversity but it is a HUGE shame that the black community sees skiing as a white thing.  Except for the rare urban outing, you don't see a single black face on the slopes even on the crowdedest holidays.

If black is a color then atheism is a religion.

My guess is Trump was more than happy to bash a POTUS while at the same time reminding people a serial bankrupter gets to keep everything, including his toys, if he has wealth tied up with rich friends.

You're missing the point. Do any of you have any idea how irritating it is to have your private jet diverted to another runway just because of some self important jackwagons on the bunny slope.

DO YOU?

Seriously. And you know what?  I bet those small jet pilots LOVED the change of procedure and the new vectors they received.  I'd love to hear some pilots ring in here.

Subby mentioned nothing about race, merely that a large section of the complaints in the article involved color.  Colors such as purple and navy blue.
YOU are the true racist for trying to point out his nonexistent racism.

Last time I went skiing, I saw Jaleel White (aka Urkel.) It wasn't his celebrity that drew stares.

"Michelle and the girls were mainly going out each morning before the lifts opened."

The NERVE of them to wake up at Oh Six Early just to get their thing done early and inconvenience as few people as possible!

FTA, apparently no "locals" were inconvenienced.  Rather, out-of-towners who experienced delays while arriving by aircraft were miffed. For the latter reason, as well as the very lame attempt at racial "humor", Subby = Idiot.
