I was in ICU after cancer surgery for Obama's 2009 one, was out of the country for Obama's second one, and without a TV (moving my sister) in 2017.

an appearance in public. I never felt that he was 100% protected even when surrounded by secret service. I remember feeling great relief when he was finished.
