ACLU Upset with President Obama for his TSA Pat-Downs Joke During SOTU … “Violations of the Constitution are NO JOKE!”
It does not appear that all were amused with President Barack Obama’s SOTU speech. The ACLU is expressing their ire over Obama’s TSA pat-down joke. While talking about spending more tax payer dollars on high-speed rail, Obama joked that “you go places in half the time it takes to travel by car and for some trips, it will be faster than flying – without the pat-down.” Needless to say, the ACLU was not amused.
“… for some trips, it will be faster than flying – without the pat-down”
During his third State of the Union address Tuesday night, President Barack Obama cracked a joke about TSA pat-downs – and earned an immediate rebuke from the ACLU.
Awkward laughter and a scattered applause followed as Obama smiled and chuckled.
Moments after the president made the remark, the American Civil Liberties Union fired out a Tweet that read: “President Obama makes funny about TSA pat-downs, but the violations of the Constitution are NO JOKE!”
It was accompanied by a link to a scathing report on the ACLU’s Web site, which noted complaints “from men, women and children who reported feeling humiliated and traumatized by these searches, and, in some cases, comparing their psychological impact to sexual assaults.”
As Weasel Zippers stated, isn’t it great when Progressives attack each other.
