Somepeople are jerks, and some people aren't. Kevin Hart
Readingnews this morning about Senator Chuck Schumer reminded me of a truestory from some years ago. 
Adear friend, working as a flight attendant for a major airline at thetime, recounted an upsetting incident with a passenger while she wasbusy readying the cabin for departure.
Perthe law, regulations, and her duties, she instructed a man to ceasedoing whatever it was he was doing. 
Continuingwith her duties, she returned a few minutes later to find the man hadignored her instructions. She, again, asked politely.
Angered,he called her a "stupid bitch" and continued with whateverit was so critical he, now a jerk, could not stop.
Howthe flight attendant encountered the captain I do not recall but henoticed she was upset and asked the trouble.
Shetold the captain what happened. 
Thecaptain confronted the passenger and asked if he had in fact sorudely insulted his flight attendant?
Thecaptain cared not to hear more. He did not hesitate. He calmly toldthe man to gather his belongings that he'd not be flying on his planeand ordered him off.
Thatwas that. 
Thatwas the correct action.
Sundaypast on a flight from LaGuardia (New York) to Washington (D.C.),passenger Chuck Schumer called a flight attendant a "bitch"- for asking him, more than once in compliance with law, regulations,and her duties, to terminate his cell phone usage. 
Otherpassengers heard the insult. 
Thearticle did not mention if the captain was informed.
Schumerwas allowed to fly.
Heshould not have been. 
Fordisobeying and then insulting a flight crew member, present for thewelfare and safety of all passengers/customers, passenger Schumershould have been ordered, by the captain, off the flight.
Asa Senator (lawmaker with a hand in enacting the regulations forcommercial aviation) he knows better. 
Asa Senator, his public conduct (especially complying with law) isexpected to be exemplary.
Asa passenger on a commercial flight he is just that - passenger. Andis expected to comply, fully, as any passenger with flight crewinstructions. 
Don'tlike it? Take the train. Or walk. 
Anyother particulars about the incident are moot.
Thathe later offered apology is, too, moot. 
Notjust a jerk, Schumer behaved a schmuck. 
Clearly,the Senator has lost perspective on his role in life - (temporary)public servant. 
Perhapsanother line of work - that does not require commercial air travel -is best for him. 
Thankgod most people are neither jerks nor schmucks. All of whom likelyshare a common thought as to what they'd like to have done withSchumer's cell phone.

Schumer is the epitome of the career politician whoactually thinks he is better than the morons of New York that insiston reelecting him. (He may be right on that one.). The ride will be arough one but Trump will prevail. The "Real" NY'er is thestreet smart Trump who has been at odds with the rat for decades andwould think nothing of "disrespecting him" at the drop of ahat. This is going to be fun so buckle up, sit back, and enjoy theride.January5, 2017 at 5:06 PM
