The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Jessica Chas­mar

Ivanka Trump and her fam­ily were be­rated by a fel­low pas­sen­ger aboard a JetBlue flight Thurs­day morn­ing.

TMZ first re­ported that a man started “jeer­ing” at the fu­ture first daugh­ter, her hus­band Jared Kush­ner and their three chil­dren, who were all seated in coach on a flight leav­ing John F. Kennedy In­ter­na­tional Air­port.

The man started screaming, eye­wit­nesses told TMZ, “Your fa­ther is ru­in­ing our coun­try.”

“Why is she on our flight? She should be flying pri­vate,” he said.

Ac­cord­ing to TMZ, Ms. Trump ig­nored the pas­sen­ger and tried dis­tract­ing her chil­dren with crayons.

Matthew Las­ner, a gay pro­fes­sor at Hunter Col­lege in New York City, took credit for the in­ci­dent, tweet­ing about be­ing kicked off the flight.

“Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying com­mer­cial. My hus­band chas­ing them down to ha­rass them,” he wrote, ac­cord­ing to screen­shots pub­lished by a lo­cal ABC News af­fil­i­ate.

“Ivanka and Jared on our flight. My hus­band ex­pressed dis­plea­sure in a calm tone, JetBlue staff over­heard, and they kicked us off the plane. #ba­nal­i­ty­ofevil,” he tweeted.

The brag­ging tweets were re­moved and his en­tire ac­count was later deleted.
