Being a TSA agent can't be an easy job, especially given the political climate right now. They have to deal with a lot and do a lot to keep us safe. But every once in a while you hear those horror stories about TSA pat downs, and this is one of those stories.

A woman named Jennifer Williamson posted a cringeworthy Facebook video of her son Aaron being patted down by a TSA agent while at the huge Dallas Fort Worth airport.
