In this classic travel freakout, a Portland-bound traveler decides she doesn’t want to sit next to a Trump supporter. The entitlement reigns supreme as she soon gets her wish when she’s removed from the flight.
In today’s Divided States of America (as one pundit put it recently) the tensions run hot for people who find themselves on different polarities. Mix in the stress of air travel and a small aluminum tube and you have the perfect recipe for another entry in the “Certified Karen” annals (at least according to one Reddit post, anyway).
In this classic travel freakout, we find a woman sitting in the middle seat on a Portland-bound flight with her husband. While the husband largely remains stoic throughout the incident (clearly embarrassed) the woman unloads on the man sitting next to her who we find out is a Trump supporter.
She mocks him, calls him names, and derides his views on climate change before ultimately getting her wish not to sit next to the man when she is asked to leave the plane.
Her tone quickly changes to a far more conciliatory tone as she pleads to stay on the plane – even promising to behave. When those attempts fail she tries to use her husband’s dead mother in a final failed attempt to stay on the plane. It doesn’t work.
As police escort her off the plane the passengers break out into a round of applause and a half-hearted “USA” chant.
Stay tuned for more classic rebounds of some of the wildest and wackiest travel freakouts of the COVID era.
