Anti-Trump Passenger Berates Ivanka Trump on JetBlue Flight

JetBlue Airways Corp confirms in a statement that the unruly passenger who confronted Donald Trump's daughter on the flight was removed from the plane.

AceShowbiz - Not being able to talk directly to Donald Trump, a man unleashed his anger to Ivanka Trump. The daughter of the President-elect was confronted by an anti-Trump passenger on a JetBlue flight leaving out of New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport on Thursday, December 22.

TMZ reported that Ivanka was on the flight with her three kids when an out-of-control passenger started screaming, "Your father is ruining the country." He reportedly also said, "Why is she on our flight? She should be flying private."

According to a fellow passenger, Ivanka ignored the unruly passenger and tried to distract her kids with crayons. When JetBlue personnel escorted the man off the flight, he reportedly screamed, "You're kicking me off for expressing my opinion?!!"

JetBlue Airways Corp has later confirmed that a passenger had been removed from the flight, but provided no other information about the incident. "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," the company says in a statement. "In this instance, our team worked to re-accommodate the party on the next available flight."

The man harassing Ivanka has not been identified, but TMZ noted that a Twitter user named Matthew Lasner said his husband was going to confront Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner at the airport. "Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial," Matthew wrote in a tweet, which has since been deleted. "My husband chasing them down to harass them. #banalityofevil."

Trump's spokesman Sean Spicer has commented on the incident, saying on Fox News, "To do that to a woman who was on there with her children, I don't care what your political background is or what your thoughts are, that's not the way we as Americans need to act."
