Huckabee joins in on the creepy desire to see the First Family get patted down by TSA agents
“If he thinks this is an appropriate way for us to deal with security as he has defended, then I’ve said, ‘OK, Mr. Obama, take your wife, your two daughters and your mother-in-law to Washington Reagan National Airport and have them publicly go through both the body scanner and the full enhanced pat-down in front of others,’” Huckabee said in an interview on Fox and Friends. “‘If it’s OK for your wife, your daughters, and your mother-in-law, then maybe the rest of us won’t feel so bad when our wives, our daughters and our mothers are being put through this humiliating and degrading, totally unconstitutional, intrusion of their privacy.’”
What is this obsession with the female members of Obama’s family getting patted down? Why no mention of his brother-in-law?
I agree that the TSA pat-downs can be humiliating. I also think it’s humiliating for the TSA agents to have to pat people down, especially given the obesity epidemic in the US. And I also know that Obama is not the architect of this policy and I’m really unsure why he’s being treated as though he is.
