Apparently his appearance left LAX travelers upset.
Vice President Biden stopped by "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on Friday but he also unintentionally stopped traffic at the Los Angeles International airport. Sharon Waxman at the Wrap is blogging, “A spokesman for the vice president said he was unaware of the FAA temporary flight restriction that stopped flights coming in, and delayed those going out." The Veeps spokesman, Jay Carney, told Waxman, “There was no sign of any stoppage. And there shouldn’t have been one.” Oh, but there was. Passengers were stuck for anywhere from 45 minutes to four hours as a result leaving many of them fuming. A spokesman for the Secret Service also spoke with Waxman and said he was unaware of any great delays as a result of Biden's travel on Friday.
