A Donald Trump supporter got out of his seat and started yelling out screams of praise for the president-elect on a recent flight, much to the shock of other passengers.
A video taken on the Delta Airlines flight from Atlanta to Allentown shows the man mid-rant, goading other passengers over whether they too were Trump supporters or if they voted for Hillary Clinton.
‘Donald Trump baby!’ We got some Hillary b****es on here?’ the man is heard saying in the clip, which has quickly spread on Facebook since it was posted on Tuesday.
‘Donald Trump is your President. Every god damn one of you. If you don’t like it, too bad,’ the man says in the bizarre mid-flight rant
The man continues: ‘Come on baby, Trump! Donald Trump is your President. Every god damn one of you. If you don’t like it, too bad.’
The video was taken by a yoga teacher named Emma Baum and has been shared over 4,000 times on Facebook.
As the man sits down and the camera pans back through the cabin, numerous passengers appeared annoyed or in shock that the man decided to get up and speak in the first place.
Baum said that the man was taken away by flight attendants for ‘at least 15 minutes’ before being returned to his seat.
Upon sitting back down, Baum said the man remarked: ‘This is what you get for being a patriot.’
The moment was similar to an incident on an United Airlines flight straight after the election. The pilot of the flight – going from San Francisco to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – had to intervene over the intercom after an argument broke out between passengers.
According to other people on the flight, a man made some racist comments to an African-American woman about how he was ‘glad to have kept his guns’.

The two passengers were separated before the pilot made the announcement.
‘I understand everybody has their opinions; that’s fine,’ said the captain.
‘If you support him (referring to Donald Trump), great. If you don’t, I understand. However, we’re out here to go to Puerto Vallarta, supposed to be having a good time, and what I do ask is that as people we have the common decency to respect each others’ decisions and to get along on this three hour and thirteen minute flight so that we can have a good time when we get down there.’
During the announcement, the captain added: ‘Nobody wants to argue, nobody is going to change their minds by arguing.
‘And let’s keep our opinions to ourselves on this particular matter at this particular time.’
