Dan Goldstein is a Brooklyn attorney who reportedly yelled ‘your father is ruining this country’ at Ivanka Trump on a JetBlue flight from New York to Palm Beach on December 22.
The President-Elect’s daughter was on a JetBlue flight departing from New York JFK Thursday morning with her children when Goldsten started screaming, “Your father is ruining the country” and “Why is she on our flight? She should be flying private.” Goldstein reportedly had his own child in his arms as he went on the tirade.
Goldstein ended up getting kicked off the flight, which was delayed because of his behavior. His husband, Matthew Lasner, tweeted about the incident, but later deleted his messages and then his entire Twitter page.
JetBlue issued a statement, confirming that the Lasner and Goldstein were removed from the flight.
“The decision to remove a customer from a flight is not taken lightly. If the crew determines that a customer is causing conflict on the aircraft, the customer will be asked to deplane, especially if the crew feels the situation runs the risk of escalation during flight. Our team worked to re-accommodate the party on the next available flight.”
Goldstein is a Brooklyn lawyer who was admitted to the State Bar of California in December 2002, and became inactive in January 2012. According to the International Ombudsman Association, Goldstein previously worked in San Francisco for the U.S. Mint as an Employee and Labor Relations Specialist.
