33. BS on so many things...
Zimmerman was dropped off by her son at Kennedy Airport for a 1 p.m. flight Tuesday to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on JetBlue, she said. She arrived at the ticket counter around 12:20 p.m. and headed for security in a wheelchair, her small, metal walker in her lap.

I work at an airport, rule # 1, 12:20 for a 1 pm flight. 1pm flight does not mean that is the time you get to the gate, that is the time the plane is suppose to be up in the air or as we call it wheels up. She had no chance in hell of making that flight so now she doesn't want to pay re-booking fees so she puts all the blame on tsa. I have never seen a strip search at my airport but 80% of the pax call the pat down the strip search. Get over yourself Grandma, they don't make you take your ants off, no one wants to see your ass, maybe the medics lifted her pants to bandage her skin.

WHY do people drop off their grannies that are this old? You can get a gate pass and go with them at any airport. Thanksgiving and Christmas it looks like the nursing homes released their people at the airport. We see so many people with dementia and worse flying alone.
