A Trump-supporting couple was booted from a JetBlue flight prior to takeoff from West Palm Beach Airport this past Sunday afternoon.
They say they were booted because they are Trump supporters. Others say they were booted because of slurs they’d allegedly used against a masked passenger.
Either way, their removal raises the question of whether free speech truly is dead in America.
Video footage from the flight shows the couple being hassled by a flight attendant asking them to voluntarily leave.
The wife proclaims “free speech is dead” and that “we didn’t do anything.”
“Then you’re going to have to take everyone off,” she then says to the flustered flight attendant, who walks off to get help.
Speaking to a nearby masked passenger, the wife then says, “You didn’t like what he said, now we’re getting kicked off a plane.”
It appeared that her husband said something to the masked passenger, the masked passenger complained and then the flight crew decided to remove the couple.
Watch the footage below via Charlotte Briar D’Alessio, a Canadian model and social media influencer:
@charlottedalessioCouple yelling racist & homophobic slurs wouldn’t deboard plane today leaving West Palm Beach. A free show to all on board♬ original sound – charlottedalessio
Note how D’Alessio accuses the couple of “yelling racist & homophobic slurs.” It’s not clear what “racist” slurs if any, they used. It appears that the husband, however, can be heard in the clip referring to the mask passenger as a “f—-ot.”
“We’re off the plane because the mask f—ot. Hey buddy, I have more money than you. You’re a f–king joke-off. ‘Oh, I’m offended because I’m a f—-ot,” he seemingly says to the unseen passenger.
The flight attendant returns and tries to pull them out of their seats, but they remain unbudged, arguing that they did nothing illegal.
Someone, either the pilot or a flight attendant, then announces that the entire plane will need to deboard and reboard, triggering loud groans from other passengers
“Can you tell me what we did?!” the wife meanwhile asks.
The clip ends with the couple arguing with other passengers.
“Did my husband touch anybody? We didn’t do anything. [The flight attendant] came and said you gotta get off the plane because we’re Trump supporters. Seriously. I really think that’s what it is,” the wife says, prompting anger from a passenger behind her.
“Don’t do that. Don’t do that. Because I voted for Trump,” the passenger says.
The conversation with the other passengers can be seen below from another angle:

According to a report from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, the couple was eventually “escorted off” the flight and out of the airport, as reported by The Daily Beast.
“According to the Palm Beach incident report, the couple were not charged with any offenses and were led out of the airport where they waited for a ride to pick them up. JetBlue did not respond to The Daily Beast’s request for comment,” the left-wing outlet notes.
Below is footage of the couple being escorted:
The left-wing media, including The Daily Beast, have predictably already doxxed the couple and publicly released their names.
Unfortunately, the couple’s actions are predictably also now being used to smear all Trump supporters and thus all conservatives, including even Candace Owens and Tucker Carlson, neither of whom have anything to do with what happened.
Case in point:
So OF COURSE they’re confused when people don’t applaud their dramatics.
Hope they get fined to high-heaven. https://t.co/rQ0DKHkg4R

One conservative responded by noting that there “absolutely is a bias toward Trump Supporters” but stressing that this is why it’s important to not engage in behavior that helps the left “enforce their narrative.”
There absolutely is a bias toward Trump Supporters, especial white males… but that doesn’t give us the right to be hateful… unless these passengers where simply defending themselves from verbal attack, even still, saying things that enforce their narrative about us is idiotic
