Delta Passenger Banned For Life After Pro-Trump Rant (VIDEO)
Delta was a bit slow to respond, but when it did…
A Delta passenger who launched into an abusive, pro-Donald Trump rant on a flight last week has been permanently banned from flying the airline, The Hill reports.
“He will never again be allowed on a Delta plane,” according to an internal memo CNBC News obtained from Delta Air Lines CEO Edward Bastian. The note was dated Nov. 28.

The airline has apologized for not removing the abusive supporter who yelled at other passengers and called some of the women on the plane “Hillary b—-es.” And Delta is also refunding every passenger on the plane for the full price of their tickets, CNN Money reports.
The Trump supporter, who was not named, was on a flight from Atlanta to Allentown, Pennsylvania on Tuesday night when his little tirade was captured on a video that’s gone viral, receiving more than 2.2 million views since it was posted on Facebook. And he sounded about as intelligent as the usual Trump supporter.
Which isn’t saying much
“Donald Trump, baby,” he yells while standing in the aisle and clapping his hands above his head. “That’s right, this man knows what’s up,” he said, pointing to another passenger.
“We got some Hillary b—-es on here?”
“Donald Trump is your president, every God damn one of you,” he yells as the video ends. “If you don’t like it, too bad.”
Had Delta employees been aware of the video before take-off, “there is no question they would have removed him from the aircraft,” Bastin said, according to The New York Daily News.
Flight attendants did escort him off the plane, but he got right back on minutes later and remained rant-free for the rest of the flight, said a 21-year-old Belize resident who recorded the jerk mid-conniption fit.
In a previous statement, the airline admitted the man should have been removed from the flight.
“I also want to make sure all of you know we have your back,” Bastin said in the statement. “The heightened tension in our society means that now more than ever we must require civility on our planes and in our facilities.”
“We will not tolerate anything less,” he said.
This is the disconnect among Trump supporters. If Hillary Clinton had won the election, would her “b—-es” be brow-beating Trump supporters? The Donald’s supporters are just clueless enough to not know, or not care that this is the reason very few people can tolerate them.
