I guess no one would be against banning burkas in public places (other than mosques) due to the obvious security threats and their regular use in these type of attacks?

Well at least until Trump tweets about them. Then everyone will defend the wearing of burkas to the death.

i have wondered for sometime how we have to go through all these different invasive procedures in the name of “security” but burkas seem perfectly fine.

Here's what Trump actually said about burqas a few years back:

We want it where the women over there don’t have to wear the you-know-what. [Trump gestures across his face with his hand, an apparent reference to burqas and niqabs.] And then I said, “Oh, well that makes sense, that’s nice.” Then I saw women interviewed. They said, “We want to wear it. We’ve worn them for a thousand years. Why would anyone tell us not to?” They want to! What the hell are we getting involved for? In fact, it’s easier. You don’t have to put on makeup. Look how beautiful everyone looks. Wouldn’t it be easier? Bwah. Right? Wouldn’t that be easy? I tell ya, if I was a woman, I don’t want to . . . bwah, “I’m ready, darling, let’s go.” It’s true!

Looks like Trump had no problem with burqas. I think...

No idea what he believes now. Any guesses?

Oh yeah I remember that now thanks for reminding me. At the time his support for women to wear burqas was used against him to say he was unsuitable to be President, supports misogyny and understands nothing about the Muslim world.

But I bet if he came out against them now, it would be used against him to say he is unsuitable to President, still support misogyny and still and understands nothing about the Muslim world.

Must be pretty hot to wear a burqa during daytime.

I was stationed in Peshawar many years ago. It was extremely hot most of the time, with or without a burqa. I remember seeing a lady who was carrying a baby under her burqa. When uncovered, the kid was as red as a beet.
