What I get out of this is how casual security is at O'hare. Trump is a loud fucking wakeup call, I hope. Living in a Walmart is one thing. This isn't that.

To make it odder he apparently he “lived” in the no public access areas - of which there are lots - which means he entered and left those areas several times a day for food etc. The FD I worked for was also the crash/fire service for a major So Cal airport. I was assigned to that station for a while as a firefighter and later had that Battalion for a few years. In each and every case, especially post 9/11 the security for access to those restricted areas was/is pretty thorough. Even in uniform you’d better have your airport security badge with you (extra background checks to obtain one) and even then usually had a airport LEO escort with you. I’m sorta stunned he could just wander around for months........

Even after 9/11 my wife, who was an airline station manager for one airline, and then an airport support analyst for another, could get access to just about any part of any airport in the USA and GB just by asking the right people. As a chain smoker she was constantly looking for the areas where smoking employees hid to have their fix.

I went along just to see the gritty, dirty sides of those pretty walls that everyone walks past on their way to where-ever. Pretty amazing how lax security really is in airports.

apparently, he found a lost security badge and used it for access,  the fact that security didn't turn off the badge is what's amazing..  someone going to lose their job..

You know how security badges get lost in airports, don't you?.....

 Rampies and G/As going into back rooms/hallways and fucking their brains out between flights. My wife found lots of unmentionables on boxes, and lost luggage racks back in the day.

My guess is that he basically stayed in the secured part of the airport after flying into town. He was able to show people the ID but never had to go through a security checkpoint.  Probably found hiding places here and there for whatever he had with him. There is always someone sleeping in the airport because of missed flights and late arrivals. In fact, I have seen lots of employees sleeping in corners and empty lounges.
