Apparently the Bumbling boobs of the Transportation InSecurity Administration feel that funny lady Joan Rivers is a security threat.
Rivers was removed from a Newark-bound flight in Costa Rica on Sunday by a jittery Continental Airlines gate agent.
From Michelle Malkin:
Joan Rivers is many things: Funny lady. Jewelry mogul. Red carpet mercenary. But a terrorist?
Can we talk?
Rivers, 76, was deemed a danger to national security and booted from a Newark-bound flight in Costa Rica on Sunday by a jittery Continental Airlines gate agent who found the two names on her passport fishy.
Her passport reads: Joan Rosenberg AKA Joan Rivers. Rosenberg was her late husband’s last name.
The “nasty and cruel” Continental gate agent bumped Rivers from the last flight out Sunday and the comedian found herself alone (her daughter, Melissa, flew out to Los Angeles earlier in the day) and with no ATM card and just $100 cash, she said.
Rivers’ tale of woe put a famous face on travel’s new reality – one that leaves many feeling like common criminals.
“If I were going to make up an alias, I wouldn’t pick Rosenberg. I’d pick Jolie or Pitt,” said Rivers, back home Monday in New York with her sense of humor intact. “Do terrorists wear Manolo Blahniks? I can tell you Donna Karan does not make anything that hides a bomb,” she said.
Am I surprised by this? Absolutely not. Remember, I use to work for this Three Ring Dog and Pony show called Airport Security aka (TSA). They could literally screw up a wet dream and couldn’t find a bomb if it was was strapped to their ass.
