From Daily Mail
Ivanka Trump was travelling on the JetBlue flight from New York’s JFK airport to San Francisco with her husband Jared Kushner and their three children Arabella, five, Joseph, three, and eight-month-old Theodore.
However, when she was spotted by attorney Dan Goldstein, it is claimed that he started making abusive comments towards the new First Daughter and the president-elect.
It is alleged that Goldstein, who was travelling with his husband Matthew Lasner and their toddler shouted: ”Your father is ruining the country.’
He then apparently began screaming out: ‘Why is she on our flight. She should be flying private.’
The lawyer was then escorted off the flight and Ivanka and her family made their way to San Francisco.
During the incident Ivanka is said to have paid as little attention as possible and tried to preoccupy her children with some crayons to diffuse the situation.
And now her father’s press secretary Sean Spicer has responded to the incident and slammed the harrassment of Ivanka Trump.
He told Fox News: ‘To do that to a woman who was on there with her children, I don’t care what your political background is or what your thoughts are, that’s not the way we as Americans need to act.’
After the incident, Golstein’s husband Lassner took to Twitter, where he confirmed that they had been removed from the flight.
In a tweet, that was later deleted, he wrote: ‘My husband expressed his displeasure in a calm tone, JetBlue staff overheard, and they kicked us off the plane.’
However, just an hour prior to that Lasner wrote on Twitter: ‘Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband chasing them down to harass them. #banalityofevil’
Lasner also took a photo of Ivanka sitting on the plane writing that they were kicked off for ‘expressing displeasure about flying w/ Trumps.’
