On Monday, conservatives cheered after video circulated of an elderly woman being kicked off a plane. Her crime? After a Trump supporter, Scott Kotesky of Montana bragged that he was in the Washington D.C. to “celebrate,” she calmly challenged him and hurt his precious little feelings.
The unnamed woman was on her way to a family member’s funeral when the thin-skinned bully contacted staff to whine after the woman did the right thing and put him in his place for supporting a president who is backed by the Ku Klux Klan and seemingly every white supremacist group under the sun. Conveniently, the man doesn’t begin filming until after he “ran and told teacher” about the mean old lady throwing facts at him.
“She has called me names and insulted me just for sitting down in this seat saying that I came here to celebrate today,” the man tells a flight attendant. Without waiting to hear both sides of the story, the flight attendant immediately demanded of the woman, “Is there going to be a problem?”
At this point, there was no problem. The woman was sitting calmly in her seat and the Trump supporter was making a scene because he was obviously too ill-equipped in his ‘thinker’ to use words to solve his issues.

The woman politely explained that she would like for him to change seats. Since she clearly felt uncomfortable sitting next to a man who voted for someone who admitted to committing numerous sexual assaults, this should have been considered a reasonable request. Instead, the flight attendant rudely snapped at her.
“Well, you don’t have that right,” the flight attendant sneered. “So I will get somebody.”
“You pretend you have the moral high ground when you put that man’s finger on the nuclear button,” the woman (still calmly) told the thin-skinned Trump fan. “That man doesn’t believe in climate change. Do you believe in gravity? Did you know gravity’s just a theory?”
Another member of the staff arrives and tells the woman she has to get off the plane even though she did no more than respond to the Trump supporter’s boast that he was celebrating the inauguration of the most inept president to ever take office.
“I’m going home now. My mother-in-law – his mother died,” the woman replies, pointing to her husband. But there was no sympathy for her plight from a staff that never bothered to consider her side of the story. She and her husband, who said nothing the entire time, were removed from the aircraft and forced to either miss or be late to a funeral.
Another video taken as the woman is being removed shows the Trump supporter grinning and clearly feeling proud that he defeated the elderly couple who were trying to make it to a funeral in Seattle. Other Trump fans can be heard chanting “USA” as the couple is escorted off the plane.
The woman and her husband were left to figure out how to get to a funeral. Kotesky, however, gave an unverifiable account of what happened on his Facebook timeline then used what appears to be a misrepresentation of the story to skyrocket himself to right-wing fame. White supremacist troll Milo Yann…Yano…Yannop…whatever his name is recently shared Kotesky’s story, and the bookings on conservative talk shows are already beginning to roll in. Not that he had an agenda or motive to lie, or anything.
