Attorney Harasses Ivanka Trump and Family on Jet Blue Flight

Attorney Harasses Ivanka Trump and Family on Jet Blue Flight

“Your father is ruining the country!”

Ivanka Trump and her family were harassed on a flight departing from JFK, headed to Palm Beach, Florida.

Before the flight departed JFK, a Brooklyn attorney, Dan Goldstein, and fellow passenger yelled, “Your father is ruining the country. Why is she on our flight. She should be flying private,” TMZ reported. He was holding a child while carrying on.

Ivanka Trump just had a bumpy start to her Xmas holiday … an out-of-control passenger on her flight began verbally berating her and “jeering” at her 3 kids.

Ivanka was on a JetBlue flight leaving JFK Thursday morning with her family when a passenger started screaming, “Your father is ruining the country.” The guy went on, “Why is she on our flight. She should be flying private.” The guy had his kid in his arms as he went on the tirade.

A passenger on the flight tells TMZ Ivanka ignored the guy and tried distracting her kids with crayons.

JetBlue personnel escorted the unruly passenger off the flight. As he was removed he screamed, “You’re kicking me off for expressing my opinion?!!”

BTW … Ivanka, her family and bunch of cousins were all in coach.

Matt Lasner, Husband of the unruly man who hollered at the Trump’s, tweeted:

Lasner is a professor at Hunter College.

After they were escorted off the plane, Lasner changed his story, saying his husband expressed his opinions calmly:

Lasner’s Twitter account appears to have been deleted, as have the tweets.

Jet Blue escorted Goldberg off the flight and later released a statement saying:

“The decision to remove a customer from a flight is not taken lightly. If the crew determines that a customer is causing conflict on the aircraft, the customer will be asked to deplane, especially if the crew feels the situation runs the risk of escalation during flight. Our team worked to re-accommodate the party on the next available flight.”

Think what you will about someone’s politics, but harassing a family and their children over their political beliefs is in no way acceptable.

They certainly weren’t gay gays.

I guess this is truly the definition of Love Trumps Hate!

If Ivanka and her children had been taking a private flight, I’m sure this self same person would have been sneering and bitching about that too, complaining about how having money and a father who is president-elect is making them feel too important or entitled or some such idiocy.

And even if one agreed with his partner’s behaviour, I don’t think “banalityofevil” means quite what Matt thinks it does.

    My guess is that Matt and his partner are a couple of utterly narcisisstic people who have been dealt a way-too generous hand in life. I feel sorry for their “son” who was either trafficked to provide them with a child, or forced to live in a situation involving himself, his daddy, and the creepy guy who nudged out mommy.

Nothing to look at here, folks. Just another one of Obama/Hillary’s Pajama Boys throwing a hissy fit.

I often wonder what things would be like if this generation had to endure the Great Depression followed by WWII.

You never have to worry about the raw intelligence of lunatic lefties like these.

Honestly, the family of the next President is on your plane, you either “harass” them or “express displeasure” and you’re surprised this gets you kicked off the plane!</b? Oh boy!

So Goldstein and Lasser have now had their 12 minutes of fame, what'll it get them, besides arriving at grandma's condo a day late for their holiday break, and perhaps getting called to the boss' office when they get back. I'll bet they thought it was worth it.

Wonder if they knew how many armed secret service types were also on that flight?

Judge transgender/homosexuals by the content of their character.

Idiot leftists need to rethink their strategy. If they keep pushing like this, it’s going to get very ugly and very, very bad for them.

What a maroon…

Think what you will about someone’s politics, but harassing a family and their children over their political beliefs is in no way acceptable.

Well…yeah…for sane people.

dude…you do not have a husband.
you have a….
wait for it….

    No matter how often the MSM uses them, these phrases just don’t compute with me,

    “his husband”

    “her wife”

Sad is the word that comes to mind.

Props to the Kushners and relatives flying coach. A good thing on so many levels compared to the entitled arrogance of certain predecessors.

    Not to mention their harassers. Imagine if they had been ‘subjected to an opinion’ opposing gay marriage.

Actually, you would think an Attorney would be a bit more detail oriented, since in fact her father is not yet “ruining” the country and won’t be until the afternoon of Jan. 20th, 2017.

If I had gotten on that flight and begun harassing this gay couple because I am opposed to gay marriage…

What am I thinking?

I’d be doing 5 to 10 in the pen for “hate speech”.

Note well that this kind of behavior is not mirrored on the right.

    Milhouse in reply to turfmann. | December 23, 2016 at 4:09 am

    No, you would not be doing time. “Hate speech” isn’t and can’t be against the law. But you would be removed from the flight, exactly as they were.

thalesofmiletus | December 22, 2016 at 2:39 pm

“Harassment” in a “calmed tone?” *snerk*

Ivanka, her children, a bunch of cousins. Is this the sort of thing they could bring a lawsuit for? Not ONE lawsuit. One for Ivanka, others for each child, still more for each cousin. Would be fun to keep the lawyer busy defending himself instead of earning a check. Or having to pay another lawyer for multiple defenses.

    Daiwa in reply to Max17. | December 22, 2016 at 3:16 pm

    I’d be very surprised if they did anything but let this episode speak for itself. The more I learn about Ivanka and Jared, the more I like them.

      Ragspierre in reply to Daiwa. | December 22, 2016 at 3:45 pm

      They are both very nice Progressive New York Deemocrats. At least she is… He might be a real rat-bastard, but that remains to be seen.

      Which makes the whole episode darkly hilarious.


        Shouldn’t you have a comment or 2 from another thread that you wish to retract?

        I don’t think harassing people traveling with their small children is hilarious, dark or otherwise, no matter what the parents’ political opinions.

        “He might be a real rat-bastard, but that remains to be seen.”

        Unlike you, as it is clear.

        Your no different than any other prog. An ass with no shame.

          Ragspierre in reply to Barry. | December 23, 2016 at 7:44 am

          I hope you can use the Holidays to de-tox from the anal poisoning you’ve become addicted to as a T=rump sucking cultist.

          Your constant lying is corroding your “mind”. I’m the market loving conservative. You’re the lying command economy prog with the closed mind.

          Barry in reply to Barry. | December 23, 2016 at 11:33 am

          You’re a sore loser that will use anything to take a shot at Trump. The story is about progs harassing trumps daughter and children on an airplane. Instead of condemnation of that action you choose to point out that Ivanka is a lefty and her husband might be a “rat bastard”.

          The actions of a pathetic man.

          Merry Christmas!

          Ragspierre in reply to Barry. | December 23, 2016 at 11:51 am

          I just can’t recall you taking any other poster to task over a “progs eating progs” comment.

          Because you haven’t.

          You’re here lying and sliming for only two reasons;

          1. you troll me like you think its your job, and

          2. there’s a T-rump involved, so you have some sucking to do. For you, it’s a cult duty.

          Detach from that bung, Berri. Clear your hypocrisy. Try thinking again. You may not have totally lost the knack…

I did a quick search on “Daniel Goldstein attorney Brooklyn” and came up with this. Same guy?

Daniel Goldstein is the co-founder of Develop Don’t Destroy Brooklyn (DDDB). DDDB leads a broad-based community coalition advocating for development that will unite communities instead of dividing and destroying them. DDDB has led the fight against developer Forest City Ratner’s “Atlantic Yards” proposal in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn since 2004. Daniel is trained as a graphic designer, and has an undergraduate degree from Colgate University (Class of 1991) in Peace Studies and English.

Lasner’s Twitter account appears to have been deleted, as have the tweets.

He forgot this: Gee, look, that page has his address and phone number!

Liberals putting their douchbaggery on display.
And they wonder why we laugh at them.
What classless reprobates.

    liberalinsight in reply to Twanger. | December 22, 2016 at 6:52 pm

    Golly Twanger, could you laugh at me too? I am not gay but I am disabled, perhaps you can mock me?
    I am not a member of a racial minority, but my wife is, could you name her racial grouping and discount her as well?
    Thanks for your help.

      Gremlin1974 in reply to liberalinsight. | December 22, 2016 at 7:13 pm

      Funny, Twanger didn’t mention anything but their behavior, so how does that apply to them being gay, which is what I am guessing your are trying to imply, or you being disabled or you wife being minority?

      The fact of the matter is that they are entitled to their opinion, they are also entitled to the consequences of expressing that opinion in an inappropriate place and time. Especially when you are harassing someone.

      The guy acted like a douchenozzle and deserved to be removed from the flight, he should be glad that he didn’t end up with an agent or bodyguard helping him find out how the carpet on the plane tasted.

      You are a parody, a walking joke. Let’s see, what’s next, is Twanger going to “attack” you in your fantasy world for [insert any tired leftist accusation]? You’re disgusting condescension and bizarre inflation of your purported intellect are laughable. You are a walking textbook of leftist rebuttals: ignore the point, name call, shame, ridicule, and diminish.

      You are a robot, mimicking what you read and see and hear. There is nothing unique or thoughtful or superior about you, yet you speak to others as if there is. This tells me that you are not only incapable of original thought but are incapable of any sense of self-awareness whatsoever. I get in skirmishes with LI commenters all the time, but you are the first whom I neither respect nor think worth reading. And that’s actually saying something.

      “could you laugh at me too”

      Everybody laughs at you dimbulb. I’m sure your junior high classmates shun you.

      tom swift in reply to liberalinsight. | December 23, 2016 at 7:05 pm

      but I am disabled

      Wait, let me guess …

      OK, here’s a wild shot—brain damage?

From the article at

we learn the following about Lasner who is employed as a professor at state/city owned Hunter College:

Lasner posted a photo of a college student wearing an old Reagan / Bush shirt earlier this year without the young man’s knowledge and then wrote: ‘Seeing this walking out of @packercollegiate this morning made seriously ill. It’s disgusting that teenagers might find this amusing. As far as I’m concerned it’s hate speech. #idontheartthe80s’

So, we have direct evidence that Lasner is NOT fit to be a professor teaching our kids at a taxpayer funded college. Hopefully he is not tendered and his professorship will be terminated forthwith.

In my earlier comment, “tendered” should be “tenured.”

These two men exhibited a disgusting and offensive behavior. For that they deserve to be ridiculed and more.
Those of you who choose to denigrate them because of their homosexuality, are equally disgusting!
You lose the high ground in the discussion when you resort to that kind of attack.

    liberalinsight in reply to Haverwilde. | December 22, 2016 at 6:46 pm

    So tell me, exactly how did these guys being homosexuals relate to having the temerity to speak to the child of the President elect? The fact that you think this is a relevant point says vastly more about you than anything they said on the plane.

      Haverwilde in reply to liberalinsight. | December 22, 2016 at 6:58 pm

      “So tell me, exactly how did these guys being homosexuals relate to having the temerity to speak to the child of the President elect?”

      Absolutely NONE! That is the point. So why go down to their nasty level when their gayness had nothing to do with their despicable behaviour.
      So tell me, what does that say about me?

        liberalinsight in reply to Haverwilde. | December 23, 2016 at 6:50 pm

        That you think it is proper to ridicule people because they are gay.

          Gremlin1974 in reply to liberalinsight. | December 23, 2016 at 10:40 pm

          Do you actually know how to read english, because he said; “Those of you who choose to denigrate them because of their homosexuality, are equally disgusting!”.

          So how does that indicate that he thinks it’s: “proper to ridicule people because they are gay.”?

      This is a joke question, right? You lefties talk all day along about how being gay is the most important thing on the planet, and if anyone ever disagrees with a gay person, they are automatically “homophobes.” Being gay is supposed to trump bad manners, ill-behavior, nastiness, and incivility at every turn and in every arena. We aren’t supposed to be upset by this despicable rudeness because . . . gay!

      And you have the temerity to come here and ask what his gayness has to do with it? Um. Everything according to you lefties and your own worldview, one you’ve shoved down our throats for quite long enough. He’s not a man, he’s not an attorney, he’s not an American, he’s not anything before he’s gay. He’s a gay man, a gay attorney, a gay American. Gee, so let’s think why people on the right would remark on his being gay . . . .

        And I just saw (I see comments from a different view than readers) that Haverwilde didn’t even mention that the disgusting attorney who was rightly dragged from that flight was gay.

        You are even more of a joke than I originally thought.

        Newsflash: not only has the race card expired, but so has the gay card. Indeed, you lefties can just fold your hand because every card in your deck is worthless (and by your own efforts, I might add).

        liberalinsight in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | December 23, 2016 at 6:57 pm

        So you think “gay” is a factor with these guys attitudes. Ya you are homophobic. This is not an insult, merely a description. You think they are “gay” first and attorneys, what, 5th? Are ideas really only as good as the voices that express them?
        Ivanka decided to make herself a public figure by joining her fathers transition team, this decision comes with some good and some bad.

          Gremlin1974 in reply to liberalinsight. | December 23, 2016 at 10:44 pm

          So you think he was acting appropriately?

          Also, thinking that their sexual preference doesn’t have something to do with their opinion of Trump considering the amount of opposition form the gay community that Trump recieved, is either naive or stupid, and fuzzy pointing out that fact doesn’t make her homophobic, it makes her honest.

His conduct, typical of the unhinged left, is a great part of the reason that Trump won. Voters were asking themselves “Are these the people I want running my country?”

    murkyv in reply to scrubjay. | December 22, 2016 at 5:27 pm

    These are exactly the kind of people who have been ruining this country for the past 10 years.

    Which is why Democrats now hold the least power that they’ve had for a century

      liberalinsight in reply to murkyv. | December 22, 2016 at 6:43 pm

      Uh, Democrats ran the country from 2008 to 2010. From that time on it was the Republicans failing to do anything. Now it will be Republicans making the 1% even richer, and blaming the Democrats for blocking legislation putting Americans to work.

        DaveGinOly in reply to liberalinsight. | December 22, 2016 at 6:51 pm

        Most metropolitan areas are run by democrats. Many states are too. Others are run by literal RINOs – their policies are indistinguishable from those of democrats in similar offices. The federal government isn’t the only government in this country capable of screwing the pooch.

        You morons are still loping that 1℅ mule? Hey numb nuts, Obama has pumped trillions of ‘stimulus’ into Wall Street and they gave more to Hillary than any other candidate in history. Your tired tropes are, well, tired. You’re in the wrong place.

        Liberalinsight, do you understand there is no JFK Democrat party anymore?? Are you aware that the “Communist Party USA”, (sometimes referred to as CPUSA) has ENDORSED every Democrat candidate since the 40’s? How the Communist Party worked very hard to get FDR reelected over and over?

        You evidently haven’t been paying attention

        Since the Obamas infested the Whitehouse, that 1% has gotten richer beyond their wildest dreams and the poor have gotten poorer.

        Must really suck to be Liberal and unable to accept reality

          liberalinsight in reply to murkyv. | December 23, 2016 at 8:06 pm

          No, no, I agree with you completely, the 1% have gained more than 50% of all the wealth in the USA. My point was, (2011-2016) this was when the Republicans COULD have done something to change that, and chose not to. Obama submitted a budget every year, and every year the Repubes declared it DOA, never submitting a budget (or passing laws) on their own.

He *should* have been removed from the aircraft and passed over to the police for various misdemeanor charges while his ticket was torn up. JetBlue was *extremely* nice to put him on another flight. Somehow, I don’t think the upcoming meeting he’s going to have with the Secret Service will go that easily.

It would be nice if his name got circulated in the airline company ticket computers so the next time he plans on flying anywhere, he’ll get a polite, “I’m sorry, but our airline will not sell you a ticket, due to your history in causing flight disruptions. Have a nice day. Goodbye.”

He made a choice. Now he gets to live with the consequences.

    liberalinsight in reply to georgfelis. | December 22, 2016 at 6:39 pm

    Ya, and on the no fly list he should be denied the RIGHT to have a hunting rifle as well.

      Trump/Pence 2020 appreciates your continued support…

      There is no constitutional right to board a commercial aircraft; therefore a person may be prevented from doing so without due process. There is a constitutional right to own a hunting rifle; therefore the fifth amendment forbids depriving him of that right without due process.

        liberalinsight in reply to Milhouse. | December 23, 2016 at 8:08 pm

        dang it, I know it must be there, (or you would not have suggested it was Milhouse) but I simply can’t find the part about “Hunting rifle” in the constitution.

          Gremlin1974 in reply to liberalinsight. | December 23, 2016 at 10:47 pm

          It’s covered under the term “arms” in the context of the constitution. As are a Tank, a cannon, the gun I am wearing right now. Don’t worry, English gets easier the more you practice.

One blogger I read today said if the left keeps this up, President Trump will win all 57 states next election.
I got a good laugh from that one.

Trump isn’t even President yet? How can he be “ruining the country?”

You’d never catch Chelsea Clinton flying coach

Rabid lefties ought be sent to reeducation camp.

At the time Obama said he had visited all 57 states, there were 57 states (Nations) in the Organization for Islamic Co-operation.

Why wasn’t she flying on a private jet? Because she’s Jewish, of course. Wasting money would violate the oath she took to the beth din and put her marriage’s validity and her childrens’ legitimacy at risk! And this moron, being Jewish himself, should know that 🙂
