Mash them together and you’ve got relatable comedy gold, the kind of thing that can bring about some laughs from the millennials while getting young people to rise to the passionate defense of the Transportation Security Administration.
That was Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly on the much-maligned TSA and he … what’s the opposite of nailed it?

Many others also noted that a high-level Trump staffer once tried to take a gun on a plane.
So, there’s that, too.
