It has been suggested on some occult web sites and documentaries that Obama secretly visited Antarctica as a side trip when visited Argentina earlier this year (March 2016).
Is this true?

In March 2016, President Obama travelled to Argentina. The supposed Antarctic trip presumably is being claimed to have occurred on Thursday, March 24th, 2016, because that was when President Obama left Buenos Aires, Argentina to travel south.
The press schedule published in advance describes the schedule.
On Thursday, the President will visit the Parque de la Memoria. In the afternoon, the First Family will depart Buenos Aires and travel to Bariloche, Argentina. The First Family will visit cultural landmarks while in Bariloche. In the evening, the First Family will depart Bariloche and return to Buenos Aires, Argentina. Later in the evening, the First Family will depart Argentina en route Washington, DC.
The conspiracy theory then relies on him somehow within that day vanishing from the public eye without notice so that he could take a flight to Antarctica. A flight that would have taken many hours each way. Not to mention the time it would have taken for him to hike to this mysterious gateway. That is implausible.
