Woman Booted Off Plane After Berating Trump-Supporting Passenger
The woman and her husband were asked to leave the plane after she was seated next to a man coming from the inauguration.
Airline passengers found out just how divided America is after a Trump supporter found himself being berated by a woman sitting next to her.
In cell phone video shot by Scott Koteskey aboard a flight from Baltimore to Seattle Saturday, he can be heard saying: “She has called me names and assaulted me, just for sitting down in this seat and saying that I came here to celebrate today."
"Is there going to be a problem here?" the flight attendant asks.
“Oh yeah, I’d like to change seats with someone," the unidentified woman replied.
She then turned to Koteseky and added: "You pretend you have the moral high ground, but you put that man's finger on the nuclear button. That man doesn't believe in climate change. Do you believe in gravity?"
Scott Koteskey, who shot the cell phone video and was being scolded by the unidentified woman. He was in the nation's capital attending President Trump's inauguration.
He told Inside Edition: "She just came out of the gate swinging at me, insulting me [and] disparaging me for voting for 'that man.'"
A flight attendant stepped in and told the woman that she and her husband had to get off the plane and take another flight.
The unnamed woman replied: “There's no way I’m getting off this plane.”
But she was finally escorted off by a police officer to applause and chants of “USA! USA!” from some of the other passengers.
