One of the many consequences of Donald Trump winning the presidency has been the onslaught of Trump-related acts of terror carried out by some of his hate-filled supporters.
During a Delta Airlines flight, one Trump fan just couldn’t contain his exuberance, so he decided to stand up in the middle of the aisle and express his delight to a captive audience.
“Didn’t take long to notice that I’m back in ‘Merica…,” a Facebook user captioned the 45-second video.
In the video, a man standing in the aisle of the plane is in the middle of a pro-Trump rant. “Donald Trump, baby!” he says.
“This man knows what’s up,” he says, pointing to a passenger.
“We got some Hillary bitches on here?” the man asks.
“Trump!” he says, clapping. “It’s your president. Every goddamn one of you. If you don’t like it, too bad.”
BuzzFeed reports that a Delta spokesman said the airline is currently investigating the incident.
And according to the Daily Mail, the man in the video was escorted away by flight attendants before being returned to his seat.
This incident highlights the new American reality and, sadly, we’re all subjected to it.
Racist and xenophobic Trump supporters feel emboldened to “speak their minds” and use Trump as an excuse to marginalize and terrorize anyone they see fit.
It would have been curious to find out how many of those passengers voted for Trump.
And of those who did, how many still feel proud to have selected an individual who inspires this kind of cringeworthy behavior?
Expect things to get much worse the closer we come to inauguration day.
