While people are free to disagree or even dislike Donald Trump, almost everyone should agree that his wife and children should be off-limits. Granted, they have the right to per the First Amendment, but why should anyone want to attack someone simply because they're related to a politician they despise?
Apparently, a JetBlue passenger found a reason why, because he confronted Ivanka Trump after she boarded a flight and proceeded to verbally abuse her in front of her children. Security eventually escorted the man off the plane, but not before creating a scene that disturbed Trump and her fellow passengers:
Ivanka Trump just had a bumpy start to her Xmas holiday … an out-of-control passenger on her flight began verbally berating her and “jeering” at her 3 kids.
Ivanka was on a JetBlue flight leaving JFK Thursday morning with her family when a passenger started screaming, “Your father is ruining the country.” The guy went on, “Why is she on our flight? She should be flying private.” The guy had his kid in his arms as he went on the tirade.
A passenger on the flight tells TMZ Ivanka ignored the guy and tried distracting her kids with crayons.
JetBlue personnel escorted the unruly passenger off the flight. As he was removed he screamed, “You're kicking me off for expressing my opinion?!!”
BTW … Ivanka, her family and bunch of cousins were all in coach.
8:35 AM PT — JetBlue just released a statement, saying, “The decision to remove a customer from a flight is not taken lightly. If the crew determines that a customer is causing conflict on the aircraft, the customer will be asked to deplane, especially if the crew feels the situation runs the risk of escalation during flight. Our team worked to re-accommodate the party on the next available flight.”
7:48 AM PT — The husband of the unruly passenger tweeted an hour before the plane took off, “Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband chasing them down to harass them.”
