Delta Air Lines has put passengers who heckled Sens. Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on its no-fly list, TPM has confirmed.
Ed Bastian, the airline’s CEO, first told Reuters about the ban.
Delta spokesperson Morgan Durrant confirmed the move to TPM, adding that “we have no other comment or detail” on the matter.
On the night before Congress was slated to officially certify President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral victory, a furious group of President Donald Trump’s supporters mobbed Romney at Salt Lake City International Airport in Utah, where they accused the GOP senator of being a “traitor” for rebuffing Trump’s demand that lawmakers overturn the election.
Several days later, Graham suffered a similar nightmare at an airport in D.C. after he voted to certify the election results. Trump fans screamed expletives at him and warned that “it’s going to be like this wherever you go for the rest of your life.”
