TSA Agent

Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents who are forced to work without pay are reportedly playing loud rap music that contains explicit language and misogynistic lyrics at arriving passengers in New York's JFK Airport.

Several passengers complained about the loud music that plays over loudspeakers. One TSA agent played uncensored rap music by Drake, Travis Scott and Kanye West.

"We're living in a simulation," one passenger tweeted on Wednesday. Another passenger said they felt like they were "in The Twilight Zone" after hearing Travis Scott's "Sicko Mode" echoing through JFK Airport.

The passenger noted TSA's relaxed employee standards.

A skeleton crew of TSA agents show up to work at the nation's airports daily, despite not receiving a paycheck in 25 days.

President Trump ordered the government shutdown on Dec. 22 after Congress failed to approve his request for $5.7 billion to build a wall at the southern border.

Hundreds of workers have called out sick and some federal employees quit their jobs after Trump warned the shutdown could continue for months or even a year.

An unofficial poll of federal workers shows the majority of workers oppose the government shutdown.

The partial government shutdown comes at the worst time for the economy and threatens to cancel Super Bowl LIII, which is scheduled for Sunday, February 3 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

In an act of defiance on Monday, conservative activist Laura Loomer and several illegal aliens scaled the fence at Nancy Pelosi's Napa Valley, Calif. mansion and wine vineyard after the House Speaker called the border wall an "immorality."

Laura Loomer

Loomer and the illegal immigrants pitched a Sanctuary tent in Pelosi's yard, spray painted with large red lettering that read: "IMMORALITY". The activists called for Pelosi to tear down her fence around her home. They also hung pictures of victims who were killed by illegal immigrants.

After police escorted Loomer and her crew off Pelosi's property, Loomer said, "I'm so confused. I thought everyone was welcomed here."

Loomer noted that the government spends $180 billion per year on welfare, social services and free housing for illegal immigrants.

By comparison, $5 billion for a wall sounds like a bargain.

  • ShelbyMoore

    Why that TSA Agent look like P from QC...except with a smaller nose?

  • Mielle Downey

    The same reason they aren't arrested for illegally crossing the border.and this is a democrat stance. Nancy aka "Pelosi Galore" The evil speaker says walls are immoral ( except when her ish is concerned) but you peasants can eat crumbs and not get paid.

  • hi-liter

    Trump still isn't answering the question of why he didnt have the Republicans get him his wall during the 2 years they had control of both houses of Congress.
    Any Trump supporters want to answer that one for us?

  • TriniHarlem

    Honestly since he's been elected my sole mission was to get my house in order. I never trusted the govt anyway so I finally woke up and started to get it right. Had my mom stockpiling meds etc because nah he won't kill me being arrogant.

  • Reenaface

    I could imagine the challenges the passengers had trying to hear the incoming departure and arrival announcements over Travis Scott's "It's lit".

    I flew home from LA on January 8th from LAX. The TSAs were picking 5 people from different security lines and letting them just walk on thru! I was one of the 5 people! I didn’t have to take shoes off , go thru screener or anything. They just let me and other folks just walk along the side pass others! I got there 2.5 hours early thinking the lines were going to be long. I was thru security in 5 minutes?! I went to the bar and has a few drinks smh at the whole scenario! If this isn’t settled soon...our airports are open for anything!

    That sucks. I would definitely quit, withdraw my retirement, any 457 or 401 money, either roll over it all or some of it into a ROTH or whatever, pay off some shit and search for another job. Or quit and attempt to get unemployment. They may not deny the claim as it's well known that they're not getting paid.

    OR get hurt on the job and get workers comp. It won't be at full pay but fuk it. LOL...joking. I would just search for something in the PRIVATE or local govt sector.

  • DeJeri

    Some of the area where they want to build the wall is on private property. It could take years of litigation to even get permission to build it because those people aren't giving up their property without a fight. It's the immigration processes that are jacked up. They can build as many walls as they want but if they don't improve the way things are done and clear out the backlog of cases pending, which is in the millions, it will do no good.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    "Not everybody here can think critically" ?

    I would be pretty pissed because plane tickets aren't cheap. Then to get to the airport to have the announcers voice on the overhead speaker drowned out by a bunch of " It's lit, or Huuuuuh, or got me in my feelings". I'd be like the wtf??

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    If you quit, you are not eligible for unemployment. Also, unemployment has to be approved by the employer so since NO ONE is working then there is no one to approve or deny the claim.

Then I contradict myself cause I'll be worried on the plane after takeoff and you'll be calm.

  • kgirl33

    It is normal for people to get picked to walk through the "metal detector" if they are calibrating the body scanner. Your bags are still going through the xray as normal. Your putting false information out there not realizing the damage and panic you could cause. TSA officers are upset about not getting paid but no one wants a plane going down to be on their conscious.

  • Renee26

    That's great... I'd probably walk that! Mine is 12 minutes

  • Guess Who

    That's not true.

    Even if the employer denies the claim of an employee who resigned, the claimant can dispute it and the employer denial can be overturned. There are certain instances where this can be commonplace.

    Also it is very possible that unemployment claims are outsources by the Fed. Govt (just like they do NOT do their own background checks for various agencies, it is outsources and the company is private sector) and in that instance, it's not "shut down". Now it may in the outsourced agency's contract to deny ALL employee's who resigned (or fired under extreme circumstances) claims but that does not mean that certain cases cannot or will not be overturned.

    That TSA worker won’t be fired, demoted perhaps, but not fired.

    Besides the shutdowns, federal jobs are quite amazing as far as security of your career. You can get demoted, and still keep your same salary. In the private sector...this will never happen. There are other perks, but that alone will make you think twice.

    The house & congress should not be paid either since they are technically government workers as well. If their paychecks were withheld I'm sure some decisions would be made rather quickly. They should have to suffer just like the rest of us! No monies would light some fire under their behinds!

  • Luv Pitties

    All of these reports about how TSA unions are going to fight for retro pay, this is going to be a long grievance process to get everyone’s money back. So even when the government reopens it’s still going to be a clusterfuck for everyone.

    I travel across the country for business at least 6 times a month. I know the routine! It is NOT normal for a TSA officer to let ANYONE walk along the side WITH THEIR PURSE and have ABSOLUTELY no screening whatsoever! I sympathize with the TSA folks but please don’t tell me I’m putting false information out there. I travel too much to know this was not right! I’m not trying to scare anyone. I’m a concerned traveler and this has NEVER happened to me before and I’ve been flying planes since I was 5 years old..I’m not new to this ??

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    $135 billion << this is how much of your taxpayer dollars goes to feed, clothe and house illegal aliens per year. The US government pays more for social services, welfare and medical for illegals than for American citizens. That wall is a bargain compared to $135 billion.

  • kgirl33

    Without giving you my background I am DEFINITELY not new to this! TSA would NOT allow any passenger walk through with purses and luggage WITHOUT getting screened! They're instances where the travelling public will be selected to go through the metal detector WITH their shoes on. If you traveled as much as you say you would know. My question to you is IF you were soo concerned that screening wasn't conducted properly why wouldn't you go to a supervisor? Why wouldn't you question someone right there? Instead you go to the bar and have a drink!? Please ?

  • Reina1718

    They are the 1st ones to take gov grants & loans & open up businessss out here

  • Ghost

    Yep, had a drink! You have a nice evening. Hope you guys get paid soon...

  • Reina1718

    If they have been here over 5yrs yes they can...especially New York & cali

  • Reina1718

    Yes, they had too, some lived check to check

  • Reina1718

    & what if they agree on the wall & next president decides to cancel it ?

  • Eileen

    no the d-mn dems need to be excised!

  • BingBangBoom

    Workers are still waiting for the last shutdowns pay... so sad

  • kgirl33

    ? I hope TSA gets paid as well as Air Traffic Controllers, Coast Guards, Border Patrol and whoever else that keep us safe while traveling. Keep drinking. Stop talking. Have a great day.

  • BingBangBoom

    This is bigger then the wall. Just like you put it.

  • Yardgirl

    I hear what you are saying and I totally get it. However if you do a lot of travelling, the aggravation at the TSA line is worth the peace of mind sitting on a plane for work travel. I never thought about flying until I had a child and every time my plane lands safely I breathe a sigh of relief. Just saying.

  • Yardgirl

    The wall would only stop a small percentage of illegals. Most come through airports on phony papers or by boat. If Mexico was paying for the wall like he promised they would, everyone would be on board.

  • Yardgirl

    He thought he could huff and puff and get his way. Now innocent people are suffering because he cannot bully his way to getting the funding. I cannot wait to see what happens next election day!!

  • Kendra Foster

    This----------------------->The airport security need to go back to the way it was pre TSA, traveling was so much enjoyable before TSA.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I understand but truly, truly believe in Karma. I've seen it come and go and ask WHY? Then we should not ask---That question. But just be in the glory. I'm not going to be judgmental with humans with errors in their ways on who is profession from a shutdown .

  • Yardgirl

    I told my employers that I will not travel for business. No ma'am not this negro!!

  • Shawty

    I hear you Auntie and I understand. I still don't agree with the way it's being done! At this point the American people are suffering not the targeted ones. How fair is that to us that pay these taxes? Most of us don't give a hoot about a wall when we are the pawns in the game. Not being able to pay mortgage is REAL these days. If we had to choose between a wall and supporting our families there is NO question what 99% of us would choose. I do agree with better border security, just not the way he's doing it.

  • Yardgirl

    HOLY SH*T!!! I just got goosebumps!! The Simpsons have really predicted a lot of things and it's eerie AF!!

  • Society Has Changed

    There is a way that you handle things and this isn’t it. Ignorance on top of ignorance....

  • Reenaface

    Imagine being scheduled for a flight arrival in Chicago,IL but you end up in flat foot North Dakota because you got on the wrong plane because you couldn't hear. lmao!

  • Kendra Foster

    I know, Trump is ignorant with the narcissism. When no one care for his ways, wall, & women (ALL the w's) he don't care. This type of behavior was always done behind closed door. Trump blew the whistle on politics. Loving it!!

  • Kendra Foster

    I love, love your avatar...I play that wiz "no bad news" random sometimes when we come across someone who soul is miserable with no family, no life or whatever their case may be.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Wow you really don't understand.

    According to conservatives there are between 10-20 million
    'illegals' in America.

    Unless you plan to deport all of them a wall isn't going to change anything besides most of the illegals here overstay their visas.

    Also how much will it costs to maintain this wall?

    I know I am casting pearls before swine by providing facts but whatever.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Yes, it is bigger than a wall it's about maintaining the white majority for a little longer and since whites aren't even reproducing at replacement levels the only way to maintain the majority is to decrease the numbers of non-whites and Trump is doing this by deporting Haitians, Vietnamese, Central Americans, etc.

  • Shawty

    Another question to ponder....if the are illegal, how do they QUALIFY for these services? We all know you must apply to be approved. You have to present everything AND the kitchen sink. How do they get approved if they here illegally?

  • NewNew

    Sadly, working without pay is as American as Apple Pie ?

  • Chocolate Bliss

    No terrorist attacks have ever happened under them. It was private airport security that 9/11 happened under. Even though sometimes they can be a pain in the ass. I'd rather have them and be safe, instead of having someone else that cuts corners because no one is monitoring them.

  • Mark mcharm

    I'm not buying that bs people just throw figures out there without fact checking.

  • Mark mcharm

    Because its probably not true

  • therealashland

    Man shut up, if I’m forced into salvery (working with no paycheck, is essentially salvery) I am going to show my entire ass.

  • Shawty

    What's not true, what I said or Sandra?

  • WutizstillHERE!

    This would have been my theme song as I patted down people!

  • Mark mcharm

    What she said about the 135 billion I wonder if we really spend that much or people just pulling numbers to support wasting 5 billion for a wall we don't need.

  • MistaO

    How embarrassing. Some black people always have to be the "one"... smdh

  • MistaO

    Agreed.

  • Well$$Well$$?

    Lucky anyone showed up ar all. Its kind of ridiculous to expect people to do their job and do it well all whilst not getting paid...

  • Well$$Well$$?

    If there was such a crisis with illegal aliens why didn't Trump build his magical wall when Republicans controlled the House and Senate?

  • Ghost

    Well I commend the folks that’s showing up but I’m NOT going to work for ANYBODY for FREE! My ancestors did enough of that crap! My motto no pay, no work! Folks need to direct all their frustrations to the person who’s causing the mess!

  • Li-Wright

    TSA should go on rolling strikes. Call in sick in Atlanta one day; call in sick in JFK another day, and so on. Noway should they be working.

  • Li-Wright

    It's slavery. Did you see Cardi B's callout?

  • Wile E. Coli

    Fire them. They're SO easily replaceable.

  • Wile E. Coli

    Yeah.. that's the attitude that gives TSA the bad rep.

  • Wile E. Coli

    They already do that.

  • Wile E. Coli

    That is not because of the TSA. There are many stories of guns, explosives and other nasty things passing right under their noses.

  • Wile E. Coli

    Were you not paying attention?

  • Allisha Jackson

    Would you troll along...nobody wants to play with you.

  • Wile E. Coli

    Sorry Honey. That's what the block button is for. Now get to it!

  • gellie

    Thank you. How you own EVERYTHING (House, Senate, White House, SCOTUS) and still not get the ONE thing that got you elected?? Barack Obama had the same 2 year window. And while he couldn't get much passed after 2010, the ONE thing he wanted the most (Obamacare), he got while he had the Congress to get it. And he was able to get that passed without NAN ONE RepubliCON vote.

  • gellie

    And here's the answer to that question, BTW. RepubliCONs and the Orange Turd spent the majority of their 2 years going after Obamacare and all things Obama. Oh yeah, and the Great American Tax Heist they managed to squeeze through too. That $135 Billion on illegals is NOTHING compared to the TRILLIONS these rich white folks just stole from the American people.

  • RealATLPeach36

    It’s not true!! Please don’t believe that!!! You want to read some simple shyt?

    White people are lazy
    White men are angry
    White men are the real terriost

  • RealATLPeach36

    To go where? There’s no jobs out here? I’m not believing this so much..and I don’t believe crap the news say...

  • gellie

    At the end of the day, it's not gonna stop nothing. People that wanna cross, will. And if you really wanna stop illegal immigration, kill the incentive for these people to cross. Start throwing employers in PRISON for hiring illegals. People wanna kill the supply, but completely ignore the demand.

  • Taj

    But they aren't being forced to work

  • Rhondalousey

    So are you.

  • Topic Influencer

    Who the hell coming to work for free Salmonella? HUH? WHO?

  • Wile E. Coli

    ha sure.. I don't get up every morning going to the easiest job possible with the intention of doing absolutely nothing, and poorly at that.

    But hey.. if you're a TSA fan, that's on you.

  • Wile E. Coli

    English please.

  • BingBangBoom

    Oh yeah I can see that too

  • BingBangBoom

    Sh*t about to hit the fan when March 1st comes and Section 8 don't pay them landlords.. It's about to get real!

  • bella28498 .

    Terrorist attack??? ??? President George Bush our that 9/11 hit out then he introduced TSA. U are not worthy to speak to me ?

  • Rhondalousey

    Im for getting these damn immigrants out and stopping more of them from coming over here but, this is not it.

  • dontgetblocked

    Nobody is working without pay. They could easily get another job. The market is good.

  • Itzgoingdown2

    Guardians of Anchor babies who ARE U.S. citizens. That's why they're having so many babies. Most U.S. counties have hospitals for the poor. They will treat anyone. Also if someone comes into the emergency room with a serious life threating injury they're going to be treated regardless if they have insurance or not.

  • Itzgoingdown2

    Guardians of Anchor babies who ARE U.S. citizens. That's why they're having so many babies. This allows them to get all the benefit and services entitled to U.S. Citizens, fact.

  • Itzgoingdown2

    Wrong!!!! Guardians of Anchor babies who ARE U.S. citizens. That's why they're having so many babies.

  • Itzgoingdown2

    What is YOUR PLAN to stop another 20 to 40 million from entering the country. I'll wait.....

  • B.Loveitt

    They've been applying around and some places that can are saying come here, we'll hire you even if it's just temp. Even Jimmy Kimmel is hiring furloughed fed. employees. Hell if it wasn't fed and they were laid off or whatever...what do people usually do? Go look for another job. Shouldn't be that hard to believe that people who are calling in are looking for jobs and not just sitting on their ass. There's 2 more years of this miserable orange POS and it could turn into 6 more years of -#45. Some aren't willing to chance it. Again shouldn't be that hard to believe that some are seeking other employment.

  • http://www.id820534.sexylfx.website Readytochokemothernatureout

    Those politicians should not get paid either some are millionaires anyway smh.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yes they are. TSA agents are required to show up for work, and they'll get paid for those hours after the shutdown is over. The only legitimate reason they'd have for not showing up is if they're sick... which is why so many of them have been calling out sick.

  • HeaVen Sent

    Where do y'all come from slithered over from TMZ or radaronline no doubt..the only low life's to claim to want nothing to do with us but stay on sites known for our comments and topics ...howshatingbeingyougoing

  • Disgustd

    Yup, you would think the govt shutdown included paid trolls too but I guess they operate under black ops pogroms. Pun intended.

  • Disgustd

    And it's spread worldwide when most people realize 9/11 was an inside job. But the people involved (like Larry Silverstein) got paid big time while the rest of us who had NO hand in it, are still paying. A$$ backwards.

  • Disgustd

    When did Mexico promise to pay for the wall? I must have missed that one.

  • Disgustd

    They buy social security cards/birth certificates from criminals inside these same govt agencies. I've checked my credit report over the years and there has always been suspect stuff going on that lets me know someone is using my info.

  • Disgustd

    And allowing Latinos the option of checking white on the US Census. I believe almost half of them choose to do so.

  • Disgustd

    Please. Bush and the cabal are out of office. They reached their goal(s). Highly unlikely anything will happen. How often do we hear about plane crashes in the US? Rarely. Especially compared to how many flights travel each day. You are probably more likely to get into a car crash than a plane crash.

  • Ghost

    Yes! About two years ago someone tried to use my address! Send in an address change thru the post office. I got the notice in the mail and had all their old information. I played detective and called the girl. Talking about she’s sorry and didn’t know she used the wrong address... let the post office know too! When you come to the United States ?? illegality,,,you do illegally crap to stay...that’s what I worry about.

  • Ghost

    Glad you have that option! I HAVE to travel! I just pray that the LORD gets me there and back! Because right now folks are doing a half ass job , but when you work for FREE there is no incentive.

  • Ghost

    When he started back tracking...I just smh! I can stand a fool trying to insult my intelligence! The ? is about to hit the fan! So now TRUMP is going to throw everybody under the bus to save himself! How can your campaign commit crimes and you don’t know it!

  • Ghost

    Enjoy your trip/cruise! All this mess will still be here when you get back! Have a tequila shot for me!

    Hispanic is an ethnicity not a race so there are white and black Latinos.

  • Storm’s Rage!

    so true.

  • ImOpining
  • Taj

    um, no. And nobody asked for your two cents. FORCED is the keyword here, people. You can't compare any job to slavery. I don't care what kind of point you are trying to make, you sound ridiculous comparing a TSA job to forced labor. They CHOOSE to continue their employment with the government w/o pay. No one has a gun to their head.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Fact: "TSA agents are considered "essential" federal employees, meaning they are required to work without pay until Congress and President Trump reach an agreement to reopen the government."
    If they don't show up for work without legitimate cause, they risk losing their jobs. So yes, they are essentially forced to work, whether or not they have "a gun to their head". You're not only rude and arrogant, but ignorant also. #BLOCKED
