If You Thought You're Having A Manic Monday: SFO Pilot Meltsdown Over Intercom
An United Airlines flight bound for San Francisco from Austin was waylaid Saturday after the pilot showed up late and in civilian clothes. It only got weirder.
And of course, someone recorded the entire incident. The pilot began to politically rant about the wrong doing's of both Trump and Clinton whilst making an ass out of herself. She first got on the intercom and asked passengers to take a vote whether she should fly the plane as-is or change into her uniform, then apologized for her state saying "I'm going through a divorce," and then launched into a brief talk about the election.
As BuzzFeed reports, the pilot said, "Look, I don’t care if you voted for Trump or Clinton, they’re both assholes," and also singled out an interracial couple in first class for reasons that are unclear. You can then see at least one passenger, who may be Reiss, grabbing his bag and going to exit the aircraft, talking inaudibly with the pilot. A flight attendant can then be heard on the intercom instructing other flight attendants to "disarm doors."
