Tweet of the Day: Hillary visits college, puts ‘everyday Iowans’ on lockdown

Hillary Clinton’s effort to meet with some ordinary Iowa college students during her van tour have apparently inconvenienced those unlucky enough to be caught in her path, according to the Independent Journal Review.

Clinton’s campaign touted her visit to Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids as an opportunity to discuss education policy and college affordability on the campaign trail:

However, while some students were meeting with Hillary, according to other students at the school, classrooms situated along Hillary’s planned walking route were put on lockdown, often leaving students stuck in classrooms until the presidential candidate was no longer nearby.

Some students who weren’t on lockdown instead found their classes canceled entirely, because Hillary’s event took up the entire first floor of the building it was in, even though only a few students were directly participating:

The anecdote may provide a glimpse of the kind of commander-in-chief Clinton would be if elected. It calls to mind the story of another president who shut down Los Angeles International Airport for nearly an hour so that a high-priced local hairstylist could come aboard Air Force One and cut his gorgeous locks. His name was Clinton, too.

The raison d’etre for Hillary’s van trip across Iowa, in case you missed it, is to have “conversations with everyday Iowans.”
