CORRECTION, July 26, 2019: The Western Journal published this story yesterday without realizing that the video on which it was based had been taken in January, 2017. We failed to abide by our editorial standards and locate the original post or earlier reporting on this video, which provided key information that we were forced to leave out of this story. However, interested readers can find that information here and here. We apologize to our readers for the errors.
One person who suffers from Trump Derangement Syndrome tried taking things to another level.
Sky-high, to be exact.
A woman aboard a commercial aircraft couldn’t contain herself upon discovering she was seated next to a President Donald Trump supporter (who also happens to be a white male).
If you watch the video, chances are you’ll enjoy some comic relief while simultaneously wondering how anybody could get so fired-up just because a fellow American supports our president.
Listen as the woman inexplicably tells the passenger on her left, “You believe you have the moral high ground.”
The chatterbox continues to ramble; if she were reciting a poem, it would be free verse. Of course, she didn’t give her target a chance to answer.
“[Trump] doesn’t believe in climate change” and then “Do you believe in gravity? Do you know gravity’s just a theory?”
The male passenger can’t be heard replying — as if she would bother to listen anyway. When leftists get rolling with ad hominem verbiage, there’s no end in sight. (So much for the old adverting motto “Fly the friendly skies.”)
After a flight attendant informed the woman and her husband that they’d have to vacate the airplane, the couple promised to settle down — but it was too late. The plane’s captain had taken control, and the police had been contacted.
If the lady’s desultory strategy was to move to another row or have her target disciplined, she learned that life doesn’t work that way. The joke was on her.
What was her reward for trying to emasculate a harmless Trump backer who was simply trying to reach his destination? Law enforcement officials escorted the bitter, upset woman and her spouse off the aircraft, upon which some passengers chanted, “USA! USA!”
The male passenger who had politely endured the woman’s vitriol got the last laugh by rhetorically asking, “So, I get a whole row to myself?”
Hats off to the flight attendants, captain and police officers for staying calm and civil while acting professionally. That’s no easy task under such uncomfortable — and potentially dangerous — circumstances.
The problematic woman was making the enclosed environment toxic. She actually thought voicing her political beliefs would literally put another passenger in his place.
Trump Derangement is out of this world.
