JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Gossip website TMZ reported that a passenger on Ivanka Trump’s Thursday morning flight “began verbally berating her” before he was removed from the plane.

“Your father is ruining the country,” the unidentified passenger said, as quoted by TMZ. “Why is she on our flight. She should be flying private.”

TMZ reported that the passenger was holding his child as he addressed Trump, who ignored him and “tried distracting her kids with crayons” as they sat in the coach section of a JetBlue flight.

As the passenger was removed by JetBlue personnel, TMZ reported that he shouted: “You’re kicking me off for expressing my opinion?!!”

JetBlue officials told DNAinfo that security removed Daniel Goldstein from the Thursday morning flight to San Francisco after he began to shout at Trump. Goldstein and his husband Matthew Lasner were escorted from the plane and placed them on the next flight, according to the officials.
