Ivanka Trump made it very clear today that she has no problem staying cool and calm under pressure. Chris Spargo reports for Dailymail.com that the 35-year-old mother-of-three was travelling with her children on a JetBlue flight when a man began to accost her.
‘Your father is ruining the country,’ said Dan Goldstein, a lawyer from Brooklyn. Goldstein then began screaming out: ‘Why is she on our flight? She should be flying private.’
Ivanka paid as little attention as possible and tried to preoccupy her children with some crayons to diffuse the situation until the crew escorted him off the plane.
Goldstein’s friend, Matthew Lasner, said that was not what happened however on Twitter, writing: ‘[He] expressed his displeasure in a calm tone, JetBlue staff overheard, and they kicked us off the plane.’
However, just an hour prior to that Lasner wrote on Twitter: ‘Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial. [He] chasing them down to harass them. #banalityofevil’
Lassner also took a photo of Ivanka sitting on the plane writing that they were kicked off for ‘expressing displeasure about flying w/ Trumps.’
And while Goldstein was happy to go after Ivanka ,and Lasner was eager to defend his actions, neither of the men confronted Ivanka’s husband Jared Kushner, who was right next to her on the flight standing in the aisle the entire time.
The plane was still boarding when the incident occurred, so the crew was able to get the two men off the flight and avoid any further incident.
Goldstein began saying to the crew as they escorted him off the plane: ‘You’re kicking me off for expressing my opinion?!!’
It was after they were off the plane that Lasner then posted his tweets defending his husband and the photo of Ivanka sitting in her seat.
Those tweets were then deleted in less than an hour. An hour after that Lasner deleted his entire account. Read more at Dailymail.com.
