Passengers on a flight from Chicago to Houston cheered this past weekend when a racist man was kicked off an airplane for harassing two passengers.
Local news station KHOU reports that United Flight 1118 this past weekend experienced a disruption in service after flight attendants ousted a male passenger who made disparaging remarks about a Pakistani-born couple who were dressed in what the station describes as “traditional cultural attire.”
As the couple were placing their bags in the overhead bins, the passenger twice asked them if their bags were carrying bombs. This made the other passengers uncomfortable, and one woman went to talk to flight attendants about the man’s behavior.
The flight attendants informed the man that he would have to leave the flight, which led both him and the woman he was with to go on obscene tirades against the passengers.
“Happy flight home — hope you stay there,” he said to passengers who were filming him on their phones as he gathered his bags, while the woman he was with flipped them the middle finger. “Hey, I’ll come back you’ll be gone!”
As he exited the plane, passengers taunted him by yelling out, “Goodbye, racist!” and “This is not Trump’s America!”

Trump boasts about ordering Iran strike while reporters watch: ‘You’d have a nice, big story to report’
During an appearance with the Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison in the Oval Office, Donald Trump boasted to reporters he could wipe out Iran that very moment-- and that would give them something to write about.
The president referred to the fact that he has previously been accused of wanting to plunge the country into war before praising himself for his self-restraint.

"The easiest thing I could do would be, 'Go ahead, fellas, go do it,'" Trump said of the Pentagon. "And that would be a very bad day for Iran. That's the easiest thing I could do, it's so easy. And for all of those that say, 'Oh, they should do it, it shows weakness,' actually, in my opinion, it shows strength."

Trump announces toughest sanctions ‘ever’ on Iran
President Donald Trump on Friday announced new sanctions on Iran's central bank, calling the measures the toughest ever imposed on another country by the United States.
"We have just sanctioned the Iranian national bank," Trump told reporters in the Oval Office.
"These are the highest sanctions ever imposed on a country," he said.
The Trump administration has vowed a response after US officials blamed Iran for weekend blasts on Saudi Arabia's oil infrastructure, which caused a sharp hike in global crude prices.
The United States already maintains sweeping sanctions on Iran including on its central bank, with anyone who deals with it subject to prosecution.
