‘Why is she on our flight!’ Crazed man kicked off plane for ‘verbally accosting’ Ivanka and kids

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.

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.







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.
