In late December I wrote about a situation that took place before a JetBlue flight took off at JFK Airport.
President-elect Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka, along with her family were seated on the plane which was heading to San Francisco. An attorney, Dan Goldstein boarded soon after with his husband Matt Lasner, an associate professor at Hunter College.
Goldstein verbally harassed Ivanka Trump, saying how her father is ruining the country along with other things. The couple was kicked off the JetBlue flight due to the abusive behavior.
A Fox News reporter, Jesse Watters (can’t say that I’ve heard of him before) decided to track down and ask some questions of the abusive attorney.
When Watters confronted Goldstein on a street in New York City, he didn’t have anything to say.
The Fox News articles mentions that Watters said “I wanted to talk to you about your behavior on the flight, sir,” and also asked “Do you regret verbally abusing Ivanka Trump? You harassed a woman with her baby on a flight; are you proud of that?”
Goldstein didn’t answer the reporter and pulled the hood of his jacket shut. My guess is that he did this to hide from having his photo taken and to more easily ignore the reporter… (Check out photos of the encounter at the link below.)
There’s also a petition at Hunter College going around to “terminate” Lasner. The Fox News reporter headed over to Hunter to get the views of students about what took place. The article shows photos of a few students who were interviewed and all were in favor of Ivanka.
Regardless of what political views you have, why would someone think that it’s acceptable to verbally attack a family traveling with young children.
What do you think about the events which took place?
