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?

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
