Anti-Trump protesters snarl LAX, cause missed flights

The thousands of protesters who blocked and snarled traffic at LAX over the weekend are taking heat from the people who missed their flights.

22-Rebekah Bergeron told the LA Times that she wasn't opposed to the protests, but she did just want to get back home to Arizona:

"I have no problem if they want to protest this, but I just missed my flight.  I just watched it take off."

ESPN's Sage Steele shared a photo on Instagram expressing her frustration with the chaos:

"So THIS is why thousands of us dragged luggage nearly 2 miles to get to LAX, but still missed our flights. Fortunately, a 7 hour wait for the next flight to Houston won't affect me that much, but my heart sank for the elderly and parents with small children who did their best to walk all that way but had no chance of making their flights. I love witnessing people exercise their right to protest! But it saddened me to see the joy on their faces knowing that they were successful in disrupting so many people's travel plans. Yes, immigrants were affected by this as well. Brilliant. 🇺🇸"

Steele's now taking heat for those comments.  What, is she wrong?

There is no need for this kind of disruption.  People have been so quick to clutch their pearls over this Trump order, that they don't understand what it really is and why it was put in place.

Last night marchers chanted that Trump is an illegitimate President, and a group of Muslim protesters formed rows and knelt down to pray.

The police allowed the protesters to alternate between the airport's upper and lower levels for 30-minute-intervals.

At each interval, they were allowed to fully close a road for 15 minutes.

What a mess.  Did you get caught up in any of this?
