FREAKOUT ON AN AIRPLANE
by Paul Mirengoff at PowerLine:
“I’ve been wondering what leftists mean when they say they don’t want to “normalize” Donald Trump. Here is some of what the seem to have in mind.
Dan Goldstein, a Brooklyn lawyer, and his “partner,” a college professor, were kicked off a plane at JFK airport this morning because Goldstein harangued Ivanka Trump just before takeoff. Ivanaka was with her husband and small children. Goldstein and his partner also had a child with them.
The harassment was premeditated. Before boarding the plane, Goldstein’s partner, Mathew Lasner, tweeted:
Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband chasing them down to harass them.
He seem so proud. Charming.
On the plane, Goldstein reportedly told Ivanka: “Your father is ruining the country.” He also asked a a flight attendant, “Why is she on our flight? She should be flying private.”
This is an odd thing for a leftist to say, but apparently Goldstein, in addition to political objections, was unhappy about the disruption caused by security arrangements. The combination of conservatism and personal inconvenience was too much from this leftist to bear…..”
Please read on, but do remember that such behavior by any Goldstein was unheard of before the Obama years at the presidency!
