A man wearing a pro-Trump “Make America Great Again” hat who boarded an airliner saying “MAGA, Trump 2020, Roger Stone is an innocent man” says he was escorted off the plane after a conversation with another passenger.
Kenny Cool had been removed from a Frontier Airlines flight in 2016 for saying “Make America Great Again,” and on Monday night it happened again, the Gateway Pundit reported.
Cool was traveling Monday from Las Vegas back home to St. Louis.
“I boarded saying ‘MAGA, Trump 2020, Roger Stone is an innocent man,’ and when I got to my seat a guy said, ‘Hey, I like your hat,’ and I thanked him.”
Cool said the man then said, “Just kidding.”
Cool replied, “Oh, OK, well let’s make America great again.”
The man responded, according to Cool, “Yeah, until we kill him.”
Cool said a female passenger then called Cool a “school shooter.”
“Just minutes later I was escorted off the plane without explanation,” he said.
The Gateway Pundit reported airline staff claimed Cool had been “making threats,” which he emphatically denied.
Passengers felt ‘unsafe’
In a separate 2016 incident, Cool recalled, he was removed because saying “Make America great again” made passengers “feel unsafe.”
Gateway Pundit said that after the airline claimed no wrongdoing in the 2016 incident, another passenger on the flight provided photos and details to a reporter for the blog.
The passenger didn’t know Cool.
“There was not one passenger that complained, it was all the flight attendant,” the witness said at the time. “She didn’t like it when he said, ‘Let’s make America great again.’ Even the other flight attendants didn’t understand what had happened. They stood behind my seat talking about having to write a report on something they didn’t understand.”
The witness said the flight attendant “made a scene over absolutely nothing is what the other passengers were saying.”
The Gateway Pundit said it welcomes any information from anyone who witnessed the incident Monday night.
Cool is seeking legal representation and intends to file a lawsuit against the airline.
