Getting a haircut and shutting down the airport and highways around it are two different things...

When Bill Clinton came to Kansas City (I don't know which year offhand) and spoke in Independence (just east of KC), the freeway going to Kansas City International (I-29) was shut down for some time from Kansas City to the airport, awaiting his motorcade traveling from his speech to Air Force 1. I believe this was standard procedure. I know because my wife and I were planning on having dinner at Weston, a small town north of the airport. We could not take I-29 and had to drive backroads to Weston. Every on-ramp to I-29 had a police car or a highway patrol car and officers blocking entrance to the freeway.

So you need to differentiate between being caught in traffic due to standard procedure of the US Secret Service and blaming your inconvenience on a f*cking lie like the Right-Wing's fabrication of a over-priced haircut!
