A passenger was removed from a Spirit flight for being a royal pain — after claiming she is a queen from California during a tirade about white privilege and a trip to the toilet, according to a report.
The unidentified black woman got up to use the bathroom at the back of the plane after it landed in Sacramento last week, Fox News reported.
A passenger’s video captured the woman arguing with a flight attendant who was trying to get to the front of the aircraft.
“Don’t push me,” she says. “Did you see what she did? She put her hands at me. She wants me to go to jail, y’all. See how she’s antagonizing me?”
The woman, whose mask hangs below her chin, then tells the crew member that she has “white privilege.”
“It’s over with — it’s 2020. Wake up, you got a mask on. So you’re under the government, too. You’re confined and you don’t have white privilege anymore,” she says.
“I’m a queen … California,” she continues. “She was from a black queen.”
The woman then directs her ire at a fellow passenger, who tells her to just go to the bathroom.
“You go to the bathroom!” she responds. “You shut up and stay in your lane! You got nothing to do with this, little girl. I’m not talking to you. Listen to your mama.”
She then turns back to the flight attendant.
“You don’t run America. You run yourself,” she says.
Another clip shows the woman jawing away at a police officer.
“California is a black queen and that’s who I am,” she says.
“She’s laughing, it’s funny, but she needs to understand the respect to a queen when she sees one!” she adds about a passenger before being escorted off the plane.
Spirit did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Pelosi preparing House for possible undecided November election
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has begun rallying Democrats in the event neither President Trump nor Joe Biden outright win the Electoral College, according to a report.
In the event of an Electoral College tie, the House would decide through a process that would allow each of the 50 state delegations one vote — which hasn’t happened since 1876, Politico reported Sunday.
And as it stands currently, Republicans control 26 state delegations to the Democrats’ 22 — with Pennsylvania split evenly and Michigan a 7-6 plurality for Democrats, with a 14th seat held by independent Justin Amash.
In a letter to House Democrats, Pelosi set the stakes for the Nov. 3 election.
“The Constitution says that a candidate must receive a majority of the state delegations to win,” Pelosi wrote, according to the report. “We must achieve that majority of delegations or keep the Republicans from doing so.”
Under this high-stakes scenario, a single seat could determine whether a delegation is Democrat or Republican and it could set off ferocious legal partisan battles in the states to pick winners, Politico reported.
It could also lead Democrats to focus resources on states like Montana and Alaska — typically Republican strongholds — where flipping even one House seat could change the delegation’s makeup.
Pelosi has been pursuing the issue with her leadership team, and House Democrats said they’re aware of the concerns.
“We’re trying to win every seat in America, but there are obviously some places where a congressional district is even more important than just getting the member into the US House of Representatives,” Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) told Politico.
Meanwhile, Trump talked about the possibility of the House deciding the election during a campaign rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday.
“And I don’t want to end up in the Supreme Court and I don’t want to go back to Congress either, even though we have an advantage if we go back to Congress — does everyone understand that?” Trump said.
“I think it’s 26 to 22 or something because it’s counted one vote per state, so we actually have an advantage. Oh, they’re going to be thrilled to hear that.”
Trump calls for Omar investigation over ‘ballot harvesting’ claims
President Trump has called for an investigation into Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar for alleged “ballot harvesting” in Minnesota.
“This is totally illegal. Hope that the U.S. Attorney in Minnesota has this, and other of her many misdeeds, under serious review??? If not, why not???,” the president tweeted early Monday morning.
“We will win Minnesota because of her, and law enforcement. Saved Minneapolis & Iron O Range!,” he continued.
The president was referring to a report from Project Veritas that implicates progressive “Squad” member Omar in an alleged cash-for-ballots scheme to gather absentee ballots illegally from Somali immigrants.
In a video posted by Project Veritas late Sunday, Liban Mohamed, the brother of Minneapolis city council member Jamal Osman, is shown with ballots filling his car’s dashboard.
“Just today we got 300 for Jamal Osman,” Mohamed says in the video posted on July 1, according to the report. “I have 300 ballots in my car right now. … Numbers don’t lie. You can see my car is full. All these here are absentee ballots. … Look, all these are for Jamal Osman.”
“Ballot harvesting” is illegal in most states, and Minnesota law allows a third party to collect no more than three ballots.
Omar Jamal, a Minneapolis community leader, implicated the Democratic congresswoman, saying Mohamed is “one of” her “many people.”
“It’s an open secret. She will do anything that she can do to get elected and she has hundreds of people on the streets doing that,” Jamal told Project Veritas in an interview last week.
Mohamed accused Project Veritas of doctoring the video to take his comments out of context.
Rep. Omar posted a tweet shortly after midnight that linked to Trump’s calling for an investigation.
It included a video of a game show contestant unveiling a card showing $750, a reference to a New York Times report that said the president paid that amount in federal income tax in 2016.
Trump has warned that allowing millions of Americans to vote by mail this November would result in rampant fraud and taint the election results.
NYPD traffic agent arrested for allegedly choking wife in Bronx
