New York lawyer Dan Goldstein had some choice words for Ivanka Trump when he ran into her in the most unlikely place we would expect a socialite and future first daughter to be: flying coach on a commercial flight.
“Your father is ruining the country,” he yelled at her, according to TMZ. He also asked a very important question that we all have: “Why is she on our flight? She should be flying private.”
Perhaps Ivanka is misinformed about how popular she is?
Goldstein’s husband, Hunter College professor Matthew Lasner, had tweeted that “Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband chasing them down to harass them.”
According to TMZ, Ivanka ignored Goldstein and paid attention to her children who were coloring. Jet Blue removed Goldstein from the flight. In a statement to TMZ, they said their decision to do was “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.”
Lasner, however, had a different version of events, tweeting “my husband expressed displeasure in a calm tone, JetBlue staff overheard, and they kicked us off the plane.”
It appears that Lasner’s Twitter has since been deleted. [TMZ]
