An unruly passenger was kicked off a JetBlue flight Thursday after allegedly verbally attacking Ivanka Trump, who was traveling with her 3 small kids.
A Brooklyn attorney named Dan Goldstein noticed Trump flying coach on a flight to San Francisco, and approached her while holding a child in his arms, the Daily Mail reported.
Witnesses said Goldstein then started yelling at her, demanding to know why she’s flying JetBlue and blaming her dad for destroying the United States (um, he hasn’t even taken office yet).
“Your father is ruining the country!” Goldstein allegedly screamed. “Why is she on our flight? She should be flying private.”
Sources said Ivanka ignored the guy and tended to her three small children, but Goldstein kept berating her and standing over in an aggressive manner.
When JetBlue attendants tried to escort Dan Goldstein off the flight, witnesses said he screamed: “You’re kicking me off for expressing my opinion?!!”

An hour before the flight, Dan Goldstein’s husband, Matthew Lasner, bragged on Twitter that his husband had spotted Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner and was “chasing them down to harass them.”
Goldstein did not attack Kushner — choosing instead to focus his anger entirely on Ivanka, in front of her frightened children. Ivanka later transferred to a private jet.
Lasner, a professor at Hunter College in New York, later deleted the incriminating tweet after claiming he and his husband had remained calm, but his thirst for 15 minutes of fame got the best of him and he exposed the truth before he could erase it.
Matt Lasner has since deleted his Twitter account. Many on social media were outraged that two grown men accosted a mom flying with her 3 young children.
Too bad #MattLasner is not equally outraged at Muslims. You know, the people who would throw him and his "husband" off buildings.

@mattlasner you are a loser "Don't harass me for my sexuality, but its ok to terrorize a woman and her kids because of who her father is"

This isn’t the first time Donald Trump’s adult children have been harassed on an airplane. Three weeks ago, Eric Trump was harangued by a Muslim comedian during a 6-hour flight to Scotland.
Like an annoying groupie, Mohammed “Mo” Amer asked Eric for a selfie and posted it on Facebook, where he later bragged that he had lectured Eric about his dad’s proposed Muslim ban to prevent radical Islamic terrorist attacks.
