Appearing on conservative talk radio Monday, Rep. Jeff Landry (R-LA) made up a startling claim about the Obama administration that appears to have gone a bit further than just wading through the political fever swamp. Instead, it seems he completely imagined a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) program that lets Muslim passengers through security without even so much as a sideways glance.
And of course, it’s all President Barack Obama’s fault.
Oddly, Rep. Landry added that he’s perfectly fine with letting Muslims through security checkpoints via “special status or waivers,” so long as it means that the president will end his attacks on people of his own faith.
“I think the biggest problems that a lot of Americans are having out there is the hypocrisy of this administration,” Rep. Landry told conservative talk radio host Jay Sekulow. “Remember, this is an administration who has no problem granting special status or waivers to Muslims as they go through TSA screenings. Look, as they believe that there is a need to grant them special rights as they go through the TSA screening based upon their religion, that’s fine, I’m ok with that. But then don’t turn around and attack Christians when they stand up and say ‘listen, we believe that the policies you’re putting in place violate our religious freedoms as well.’”
