Dana Loesch, ‘Breitbart’ cause a stir with TSA


Radio host and CNN contributor Dana Loesch proved today that the name “Breitbart” still can cause a stir, even at airport security. The TSA took a particular interest in Loesch’s glass Breitbart award, which she received last night at the Smart Girl Summit in Alexandria, Va.

TSA literally losing their minds over my suitcase and award right now.

Taking a cue from Nicki Minaj, perhaps, Loesch decided to document the experience on camera.

TSA thinks the award may be a bomb. I'm not kidding.

@DLoesch You have got to be kidding… except that it's TSA so you're not allowed to be kidding.

TSA has confiscated my luggage and award. "Traces of nitrates or explosives"

Whatever happened, it didn’t last long, as Loesch was on her way within minutes.

After deciding how idiotic it was to freak out over a clear glass award, TSA just now decided I am not a terrorist and I think we get to go

Alert the media!


Crisis averted! TSA says I'm not a terrorist after all and my big glass award can fly. PHEW

@DLoesch TSA must be on Twitter too.

@DLoesch this is why I always make my awards travel separately

@DLoesch We are so sorry that you had to go through that. So glad you and the award made it!!! #sgs12

We’d like to get a closer look at the award ourselves to see just what’s so threatening about it, but for now we’ll settle for this picture of Loesch accepting the award.
