Their child didn't need to witness such behavior and Ivanka's children didn't need to be victims of this behavior. The fact that children were present didn't appear to offer enough reason for Goldstein to put on the brakes and take both Ivanka's kids and his own child into account. In a clip taken of the men as they exit the airport gate, the reporter asked if they thought it was appropriate to do this in front of children, but that question went ignored.
This couple consists of two men who hold prestigious positions within the community. They are a college professor and a lawyer, according to Zero Hedge. Goldstein, who is the man who acted as the mouth piece while cornering Ivanka, is a lawyer. Lasner, who sent out what many perceive as a tweet expressing his pride in what his husband was doing, is the college professor. He teaches at Hunter College as an associate professor.
This bizarre tweet from Lasner was informing the masses that his husband was chasing down Ivanka. That alone sounded inappropriate, but then he added what his husband intended to do -- "harass them" -- and that did it for many people. Not only were folks furious that Goldstein harassed the family, now they were peeved Lasner sounded as if he was egging his husband on, which also put him as a target for angst.
Today across the social media sites, people are calling for Lasner's dismissal from Hunter College. Many have focused on Lasner's hashtag on his tweet as tagging his target as "evil."
PJ Media writes, "Apparently, it's OK to irritate and delay a plane full of people as long as you not-so-cleverly hashtag your target as 'evil.'"
Both men are seen as acting very inappropriate by social media users for their actions around a woman and her children and that is putting it mildly once reading what people had to say. Ivanka Trump did not deserve this encounter, which is seen as "bullying" by many of the people who commented on this event. Not to mention how this must have made her children feel to see their mommy being yelled at by an agitated stranger.
Goldstein was not only irate to see Ivanka, but her presence on the flight caused a delay as the Secret Service Agents had security concerns. The protocol was for Ivanka, her husband, and their children to board the plane first before the other passengers, slowing down the boarding process.
Goldstein was overheard by another passenger saying, "Oh my God, this is a nightmare. They ruin the country and now they ruin our flight."
Instead of exchanging any words with this man, Ivanka got into her mode as a mother of three and tried to distract her children with crayons as Goldstein spewed forth a verbal attack. The New York Daily News describes Ivanka's demeanor through the entire event as "calm, cool and collected." The JetBlue flight attendants had the two men escorted off the flight, but Ivanka and her family were subjected to this awful turbulence before the plane ever left the ground. You can see just how cramped Ivanka and her family were while in their coach seats in the tweet below.
