One month after claiming Muhammad Ali Jr. claimed that he was detained in Florida, he is now claiming he was detained once again on Friday at Reagan International Airport in Washington, D.C., for being a Muslim.
However, according to the TSA, his claims are false as the TSA doesn’t have the authority to detain people.
Even Debbie Wasserman Schultz got in on the story and tweeted this mess:
The incident was reported via the tweet on Friday afternoon. According to the TSA, both Schultz and Ali are embellishing the story.
The agency admitted they only stopped him to verify his identity and nothing more. According to them, “a call was made to confirm Mr. Ali’s identity with TSA officials.” 11 minutes later, Ali was cleared and allowed to board his flight.
A TSA spokesman laughed at the idea that the TSA detained Ali, writing in an email, “In the security world detain means to take into custody. … We don’t do that.”
When it comes to stories like this, the left will never supply all the facts, only the ones that suit their narrative.
