“I just couldn’t believe it,” he told Inside Edition. “It was mindblowing.”

The video seems to sum up widespread anger Americans are feeling about the long lines at TSA checkpoints.


For those of you that know midway well, you know how bad this is....3 hour wait in the security line that is all the way back to the orange line. This will be on the news because half of these people will miss their flights . All due to "tsa cut backs and increased flights at midway" according to the police officers. No doubt this is created on purpose to cause a stir... #TSApre has never been more valuable #travelgram #southwestairlines #airport #midwayairport #jobcreation #ihatethewait

“There were certainly some people near me that missed their flights for sure,” he said. “There was a lot of stress, a lot of cursing.”

Hoffman says he was in the line for an excruciating hour-and-a-half.

With the summer travel season in its early days, scenes like the one in Midway are being seen at major airports across America.

Many passengers took off while their bags sat in a lot.

The TSA has said they are devising a plan to alleviate wait time at the nation's busiest airports.
