Anyone who doubts the Trump Effect is not paying attention. Watch this airline passenger get away with a sexist tirade against women on board his flight as hailed Donald Trump. The reaction of the passengers and the airline is unbelievable.
This airline passenger shows Trump Effect alive and well
The Trump Effect is dangerous. A supporter of the president-elect went on an intimidating tirade calling women Hillary Bitches as he hailed Donald Trump. What is more amazing is that Delta Airlines did absolutely nothing to remove the obvious threat from the airplane.
The Daily Beast contributor Yashar Ali posted the video to his Twitter account. We modified the video to fit our HD format.
"How many people man?" the unhinged Trump voter shouted. "Really? Ain't nobody gonna say sh$t on this plane?"
A passenger in the back of the airplane shouted that she could not hear. She likely did not know it was an unhinged Trump supporting passenger shouting.
"You can't hear me?" the Trump supporter shouted back. "Donald Trump, baby."
Pointing to another passenger, he shouted, "That's right. This man knows what's up. We've got some Hillary Bitches on here? Come on 'baby.' TRUMP. That's what I'm talking about; hey baby. Donald Trump. He's your president; every god damn one of you. If you don't like it, too bad."
The sad part of the entire ordeal is that the employees from the airline seem to do nothing. Yashar Ali subsequently tweeted the response he got from Delta after they saw his video.

The airline should have removed this Trump supporter for his belligerence. He was a threat to that airplane. The reaction would likely be very different if the passenger were from a stereotyped group. In fact, many of the passengers that remained quiet would probably not allow that airplane to take off at all.
