Man in Trump gear booted from Southwest flight for removing mask to eat

• NY Post

A black man wearing a "Trump 2020" mask was kicked off a Southwest Airlines after lowering it to eat a snack, a video appears to show.

The passenger — who was also sporting a "Black Voices for Trump" hat — is seen talking to a crew member while holding a bag of mixed nuts and wearing a face mask under his chin.

"Tell us the policy that says he cannot eat with his mask off?" a woman filming the video can be heard asking in the footage shared by SV News. "It's the hat and the mask — it's not the eating."

A second video then shows the man leaving the Tuesday morning Tampa-to-Dallas flight.

The incident — which Southwest said came after the man repeatedly refused to wear a mask — was soon tweeted by Donald Trump Jr., who bashed the airline.

"WTF??? This is disgusting. I've been on a thousand flights in the last few months and everyone lowers their masks to eat and drink. I did it on a southwest flight earlier this week," he wrote.
