Watch: Airline Employees Tell Woman She Can't Bully Pro-Trump Passengers

A self-righteous passenger onboard an airplane from Baltimore to Seattle thought she had the right to bully and boss around a pro-Trump supporter. She was quickly put in her place by the stewards and stewardesses.

Scott Koteskey had the unfortunate seat assignment next to the irritable woman described above. When she got wind of Koteskey's political views, she proceeded to berate him and criticize President Trump. 

“You put a crazed man in charge of the nuclear codes!" she told him. "You should be ashamed!”

Eventually, she called the flight crew over to demand they show respect for her and her husband, who just lost his father, and remove their pro-Trump neighbor to another seat. 

They informed her that’s not how America works.

“I’m terribly sorry for that, but that does not give you the right to treat people the way you’ve been treating them,” one steward said.

The plane cheered when the disruptive passenger was escorted off the plane.

While the experience wasn’t the most pleasant one he’s ever had, Koteskey wrote on Facebook that the result was inspiring and gave him hope in the future of America under President Trump.

“As the lady was removed I saw that I was surrounded by blacks, Latinos, Asians, and whites, all who had chimed in asking her to be removed and who had defended me,” he wrote on Facebook. “I was touched and moved knowing later that not all these people were Trump supporters. The black man who took the seat next to me was a registered Democrat and he and I had a very good discussion about the beauty of free speech and coming together when people insult and commit acts of violence just for having differing views.

"It truly was a great demonstration of AMERICA and its people coming together and standing up for one another."
