Two men and their child were kicked off a JetBlue flight from New York to San Francisco on Thursday after one of the men recognized Ivanka Trump and allegedly harassed her before takeoff.
Daniel Goldstein, an attorney from Brooklyn, accosted Ms. Trump who was traveling with her husband Jared Kushner and their three children.
“Why is she on our flight? She should be flying private.” Goldstein reportedly said. It’s unclear whether the comment was made directly to Ivanka or simply said aloud.
The ordeal was captured in images published to Twitter by Goldstein’s husband, Matthew Lasner, and a backlash is costing him on Amazon.
Lasner, a professor at Hunter College’s department of urban policy and planning in New York City, is the author of “High Life: Condo Living In The Suburban Century” and his book is being flooded with 1-star reviews, most containing plane-related puns.
The biter bit. Cue the outrage when the Crust finds one of its own receiving the same treatment that their Underclass are always so ready to dish out.
Mr Lasner has a BA from Columbia, an MS from LSE, and a PhD from Harvard; in all that time, he never learned any manners. Truly doth our education system suck.
The plane altercation set off a firestorm on social media and became national news thanks mostly to Lasner’s tweets. Lasner’s tweets, all of them, have since been deleted.
Sounds like somebody has a guilty conscience.
