Future First Daughter-cum-First Lady (it’s confusing…) Ivanka Trump recently ventured outside of her bubble of billionaire privilege by taking a non-charter flight with regular humans, and swiftly learned that it was a huge mistake.
Inside Trump Tower, the Trumps are treated with the sort of deference befitting Donald Trump’s delusional visions of himself and his own importance. Outside of Trump Tower, however, Ivanka realized just how reviled her who family is now because of her father’s overt bigotry.
Ivanka, her fellow real estate scion husband Jared Kushner and their three children recently boarded a JetBlue flight departing from JFK airport in New York and encountered a far bumper ride than they had anticipated. A passenger near Ivanka recognized her as the President-Elect’s spawn, gropee and enabler, and yelled at her, “Your father is ruining the country. Why is she on our flight? She should be flying private.” This reportedly unnerved Trump’s grandkids, who Ivanka attempted to distract with crayon drawing.
The man was later shuffled off of the airplane. While leaving, he screaming, “You’re kicking me off for expressing my opinion?” JetBlue put out a statement on the matter, which said, “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.” Do you think the Trump family members deserve to be treated like pariahs?
