Flight Attendant Union Wants Airlines to Ban Trump Supporters for ‘Mob Mentality Behavior’

'Their violent and seditious actions at the Capitol today create further concern about their departure from the D.C. area...'

The president of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, an organization representing 50,000 flight attendants across 17 airlines, said commercial airline companies should ban Trump supporters from traveling with them because of their conduct.

“The mob mentality behavior that took place on several flights to the D.C. area yesterday was unacceptable and threatened the safety and security of every single person on board,” Sara Nelson, AFA-CWA president, said in a statement, Fox News reported.

Nelson’s statement followed viral videos from the past few days in which Trump supporters occupied the majority of seats aboard flights to Washington D.C.

In one instance, a Trump supporter on a flight, which had just landed at Dulles International Airport from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, shined a “Trump 2020” image on the aircraft’s ceiling.

This led to a hyperbolic verbal altercation.

“He just threatened to f—ing kill us,” a man yells, claiming that another man threatened him.

The same man points at another man, who he claims threatened him and said, “These are the guys we came to f—ing wipe out.”

Other people, apparently Trump supporters, call Democrat Joe Biden a “pedophile.”

“Please have a seat. I’m talking to you in the aisle. Have a seat, please. Now,” the flight attendants said as the confrontation concluded.

“Their violent and seditious actions at the Capitol today create further concern about their departure from the D.C. area. Acts against our democracy, our government and the freedom we claim as Americans must disqualify these individuals from the freedom of flight,” Nelson said in an attack on the right of conservatives to peacefully protest.
