Ivana Trump, Second Nigerian Man Escorted Off Airplanes

It's like there's something in the H2O on these flights.

These two individuals appear to have committed very similar -- and similarly obnoxious -- brain-dead acts. But I wouldn't bet the Christmas fruitcake that they received the same treatment from law enforcement personnel ...


A passenger onboard the same Northwest Airlines flight that was attacked on Christmas Day was taken into custody in Detroit on Sunday after becoming verbally disruptive upon landing, officials said.

A law enforcement official said the man was Nigerian and had locked himself in the airliner's bathroom. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing.

According to an update by the Associated Press, the man turned out to be a businessman who became ill during the flight. Investigators later said he'd posed no security threat.


Police say Ivana Trump has been escorted off a plane in Florida after she became belligerent when children were running and screaming in the aisles.

Authorities say the first ex-wife of billionaire Donald Trump cursed at the children Saturday, and when flight attendants on the New York-bound plane tried to calm her, she became even more aggravated. Her spokeswoman, Catherine Saxton, did not immediately return a telephone message...

She has not been charged in the incident at Palm Beach International Airport. Palm Beach County sheriff's deputies asked Trump to voluntarily exit the plane, but they said she refused. She was then escorted off.

Appears to be the theme of the holidays.
