A woman was escorted off of an airplane Saturday after berating a Trump supporter who was sitting next to her on the flight.

The Trump-supporting passenger, Scott Koteskey, shared two videos of the incident to his Facebook page on Saturday.

The woman can be heard demanding that a flight attendant switch Koteskey to a new seat to which the attendant responds: “Well, you don’t have that right.”

After the flight attendant walks away, the woman turned to Koteskey. “You pretend you have the moral high ground, but you put that man’s finger on the nuclear button,” the woman said.

“That man doesn’t ‘believe’ in climate change. Do you believe in gravity? Did you know gravity is just a theory.”

Another flight attendant approaches the woman and informs her that they are going to have to take her off the plane, to which she refuses.

“No, I paid for this seat and I’m sitting in it,” the woman responds. “There is no way I’m getting off this plane,” she told the flight attendant, saying that she was on her way to her mother-in-law’s funeral.

“Fine, I’ll be quiet,” the woman began to plead. Finally her husband, who is also sitting next to her, tries to diffuse the situation and asks the attendant if they can stay on the plane if his wife quiets down and switches seats.

The woman continued to argue to no avail and was eventually escorted off the plane by police while the surrounding passengers clapped and cheered.
