Flying has become absolutely insane. All you need to do is watch this video posted to Twitter and filmed by a passenger on a recent Southwest Airlines flight to understand what I’m saying. It appears to show another passenger with a ‘Black Voices For Trump‘ cap being asked to get off the aircraft for allegedly having his required COVID-19 face mask temporarily down.
Never mind that the man in the video was eating peanuts at the time his mask was down, or the fact that he was wearing a ‘Black Voices for Trump’ cap and a Trump face mask. The latter half of the information above appears to be the suspected reason for asking the man to leave the flight.
It’s like extortion on a flight. I actually hate flying now because anything you do or say can get you kicked off a flight. No one complains anymore because of that very reason. Apparently, we don’t even need to speak to get kicked off – just eat some peanuts and wear a Trump hat.
The person filming the incident before the flight had taken off asked the flight attendant repeatedly what the airline regulations were for eating on a flight. She specifically asked if there was a rule against pulling the mask down to eat. The flight attendant didn’t appear to want to answer the passengers questions in the video.
Southwest Airlines could not be immediately reached for comment. This story will be updated when and if an official from the airline responds.
I remember the days when Southwest was fun.
Some people in the video speculated it wasn’t about the food but about the passengers open support for President Trump that led to the incident.
Donald Trump Jr. responded with disgust, as did I after seeing the viral video on Twitter.
“WTF??? This is disgusting,” said Donald Trump Jr. on Twitter. “I’ve been on a thousand flights in the last few months and everyone lowers their masks to eat and drink. I did it on a southwest flight earlier this week.”
Still, it’s hard to believe in America that something like this could happen but when you watch it on video it’s daunting.
In fact, many people responded to the post on Twitter, questioning why the gentleman was forced off the flight when almost everyone flying during these COVID-19 restrictions can lower their masks to eat.
But hey, remember it was Southwest Airlines that pulled a Texas family off a flight when the youngest member, a three-year old with autism, refused to wear a mask on a flight within the state.
DOJ says FBI informant on Biden had ‘high-level’ contacts with Russian intelligence
In a memorandum filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada to support Alexander Smirnov’s continued pre-trial detention, the Department of Justice(DOJ) wrote that he claimed to have had “contacts with multiple foreign intelligence agencies…[who] could resettle Smirnov outside the United States if he were released.”
Smirnov, a dual citizen of the United States and Israel, was arrested and charged on Feb. 14 with making false statements to the FBI about Biden’s connections to the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings Limited, which employed his son Hunter Biden as a member of the board with a monthly salary of $50,000 during his term as vice president.
“During his custodial interview on February 14, Smirnov admitted that officials associated with Russian intelligence were involved in passing a story about [Hunter Biden],” wrote special counsel David Weiss in the filing. “Smirnov apparently attended a separate meeting with Russian Official 1, [an] individual who controls groups that are engaged in overseas assassination efforts.”
The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that Smirnov was a confidential human source who provided information that was used to prepare a report, known as an FD-1023, about Joe Biden’s alleged connections to the Burisma business partners of Hunter Biden. That report has previously served as evidence contradictingJoe Biden’s claim that he knew nothing of his son’s business dealings; a notion at the center of an impeachment inquiry against him.
The FD-1023 detailing Smirnov’s claims was released by Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa on July 20, 2023, after it was provided to him by government whistleblowers. “[The] indictment confirms several points Senator Grassley has made repeatedly. The informant behind the FD-1023 was, indeed, a long-serving, trusted FBI source used by the agency for criminal investigations since the Obama administration. In fact, he was so trusted that the FBI provided him authorization ‘to engage in illegal activity for investigative purposes’,” a spokesperson for Grassley told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
