President Donald Trump is in town today, and things are gonna get zany. Trump supporters! Trump protestors! Bucks fans! People just trying to get home! Like we said before, if you want a taste of what Milwaukee will be like during the 2020 Democratic National Convention this summer, here you go.

Happily, not all presidential (and/or ex-presidential) visits to our fair city have been this fraught/gross. Some have been fun, positive, or downright weird. Here are some notable examples from the semi-recent past.
