Unpaid TSA Agents Have Basically Zero F*cks Left To Give And Their Music Choices Prove It

As of Saturday, we are officially experiencing the longest government shutdown in U.S. history. With 800,000 federal employees furloughed or working without pay, all remain without paychecks to kick off 2019.

The shutdown has had adverse effects on National Parks — with campgrounds overflowing with trash and human excrement, and The Food and Drug Administration suspending food inspections, subjecting us to increased risks of food poisoning outbreaks.

Now the shutdown, due to Trump’s petty demand for the border wall with Mexico, is affecting U.S. airports. The Transportation Security Administration is running on empty with many of its employees calling out sick, contributing to longer lines through security checkpoints with grumpier jet-setters quickly wanting to get from A to B.

To offset temper flares, why not blast some irreverent music?

After all, it is the current mood.

New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport is streaming explicit rap songs over their speakers that best reflects the chaos everyone must be feeling right now.

Business Insider found tweets from passengers traveling through JFK and reporting about hearing uncensored versions of rap tunes, like “Sicko Mode” by Travis Scott.

Imagine being patted down after passing the body scan while listening to Kanye, rapping:

“Watch this some sh*t, go
Poopy-di scoop
Scoop-diddy-whoop
Whoop-di-scoop-di-poop
Poop-di-scoopty
Scoopty-whoop
Whoopity-scoop, whoop-poop
Poop-diddy, whoop-scoop
Poop, poop”
Well, that is apparently the goofy goings-on at JFK right now.

TSA agents are not wanting to be there telling you to empty your pockets and not getting paid for it.

But maaaybe some Beastie Boys can assuage some of the stress from manning understaffed stations.

Paramore’s first line in the opening verse is, “I’m in the business of misery.” Nothing could be farther from the truth.

It’s a vibe, aiight?

According to a spokesperson for Port Authority in New York and New Jersey that also operates JFK, TSA employees have control over music choices while airline employees pick their jam at other terminals.

However, a TSA spokesperson told PEOPLE, “TSA doesn’t have access to the public address system at JFK, I have been advised that the system is accessed by the individual operators and the [Port Authority of New York and New Jersey].”

Well, whoever is in charge of the music selections at JFK and is over the extended shutdown, we totally hear ya.
