Media Silliness about Trump's Helicopter: Appearance of Trump helicopter at Mar-a-Lago raises questions

It really must be a very slow news day when this is even a story. 
Why is Trump's private helicopter being on his private property such a concern?  There could be a hundred reasons why it's there and I really don't care to know.  What is the big deal?  Is the media so hard up for bullshit news?  Can we get some real journalism about things that are actually important?

Fox News reports President Trump's personal helicopter spent the weekend parked in a prime spot on the front lawn of Mar-a-Lago, despite the fact that Trump is barred from using it while president. 

The Palm Beach Daily News reported that the Sikorsky S-76, with "TRUMP" emblazoned on the tail and step, landed on the club's newly paved helipad Saturday afternoon. Palm Beach Fire-Rescue spokesman Sean Baker told the paper that the Secret Service requested a fire engine to be on standby. 

"We were surprised," Baker said. "This was not something we knew was coming."

The helicopter remained on the helipad Sunday, but left after a few hours. The White House didn't respond to questions about the reason the helicopter was there. Baker said he did not know what the helicopter would be used for and said there were no reports of anyone arriving or being picked up by the helicopter Saturday.
