Supporters & Protesters at Trump Rally



On Friday (3.04) night, Donald Trump bought the circus to the Lakefront Airport. The rally was described as one of the rowdiest of the campaign. Outside the hangar, protesters were out in force. Inside the event, the sound was off and constant ejections interrupted the stump speech. At one point, a man holding a "K.K.K. 4 Trump" was even thrown out. Timothy Parris was on the scene to capture it all.

Layovers are becoming a thing of the past for beach-bound travelers flying out of MSY. Starting May 17, 2014, New Orleans will offer seasonal non-stop flights to Montego Bay, Jamaica. Last summer, MSY offered similar deals to Cancun, which will resume in the summer of 2014.
