A woman was removed from a flight following a confrontation with a Donald Trump voter on Saturday.Video of the incident was shared on Facebook and began circulating in media early this morning. The woman said she was travelling to be with her husband, whose mother had died.
The female passenger asked to move seats when she discovered that she was sitting next to a Trump supporter but her request was denied. She then blamed the Trump voter for putting Trump in the White House and caused a minor incident on the plane.
“You put that man’s finger on the nuclear button,” the woman reportedly said. “That man doesn’t believe in climate change. Do you believe in gravity? Did you know gravity’s just a theory?”
The woman said she would settle down because she needed to travel to see her husband but the crew decided to remove her from the plane. Other passengers cheered as she was removed and some shouted “USA!”
The visibly elderly woman said the male passenger was invading her space and she had paid for her ticket. One flight attendant told her she did not have the right to move to another seat and a second flight attendant asked her to gather her things before she was thrown off the plane.
