Making America Great Again in Shanghai

Posted By on Tue, May 23, 2017 at 9:39 AM

Viral story of the day. Old white man wearing a Make America Great Again cap tries to claim seats to which he isn't entitled on United flight from Shanghai to Newark. Resists allowing others to claim seats. Complains that people in China can't speak English. Calls one woman "Hillary." Calls another a "lesbian." After 3.5 hours, he finally leaves the plane. Other passengers, who'd deplaned, chant "Lock him up" as he walks past with airport security. Their restraint was admirable. His actions delayed arrival time by eight hours, thanks to an unscheduled stop in San Francisco for a change of crew.

Know him?
