Meet Dan Goldstein, the Jewish Lawyer Who Faced Off With Ivanka Trump on JetBlue Flight


Dan Goldstein and his husband Matthew Lasner


The JetBlue passenger who confronted Ivanka Trump on a flight to Florida is a Jewish lawyer from Brooklyn who was traveling with his husband and child.

“Your father is ruining the country,” lawyer Daniel Jennings Goldstein snapped at the future first daughter.

“Why is she on our flight?” Goldstein asked. “She should be flying private.”

JetBlue personnel then escorted Goldstein off the flight.

Goldstein’s husband, identified as Hunter College professor Matthew Lasner, insisted Goldstein did nothing to warrant being booted from the flight.

Lasner tweeted at the time: “My husband expressed his displeasure in a calm tone, JetBlue staff overheard, and they kicked us off the plane.”

But just an hour earlier, Lasner admitted that Goldstein was intent on “harrass(ing)” Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, the Daily Mail reported. Lasner took to Twitter to declare: “Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband chasing them down to harass them. #banalityofevil.”

“The decision to remove a customer from a flight is not taken lightly,” JetBlue said in a statement.

Passenger Marc Scheff sat in front of Ivanka Trump on the flight. In a Facebook post, he wrote that the flight was delayed because the Trump and Kushner boarded first. Scheff wrote that Goldstein “didn’t accost [Ivanka] directly.”


“He did not yell,” Scheff added. “He was also not what I would describe as calm. Agitated maybe. His husband behind him was very calm. His son is adorable and sharply dressed.”

Goldstein is an employment lawyer in Brooklyn and graduated from Wesleyan University and from UCLA School of Law.

Goldstein reportedly worked for the U.S. Mint in San Francisco until 2012.

The couple bought a 1,100-square-foot apartment on Brooklyn’s Columbia Heights waterfront in 2013.

According to his Twitter page, Lasner is a professor of urban studies and planning at Hunter College. He is a Harvard graduate and the author of a number of books, including “High Life: Condo Living in the Suburban Century.”

Lasner is an outspoken advocate of liberal causes. He marched against Donald Trump and called him a fascist.

He has also referred to “American apartheid” in his tweets about equal housing.

Lasner deactivated his Twitter account Thursday after the storm erupted.

    Hey Matt, your husband is a douche bag for going after her when she was with her kids. He should have been arrested

    Obviously Jet Blue is anti semitic and needs to be bankrupted now for throwing 2 shlomo-sexuals off the flight.

    Oh wait, this was obviously a hoax, since the Jews looooooove Trump and got him elected.

    Let us hope that Professor Lasner is not a hypocrite and has accordingly “also referred to ‘Zionist Israeli’ apartheid” in tweets about decades-long ethnic cleansing, illegal occupation, myriad human-rights violations, collective punishment, home demolitions, land and water theft, vast social and legal injustices, psychotic criminality centered on illegally occupied Gaza et al perpetrated against the Christians and Muslims of Palestine.

    What bothered me most about this article is the CONSTANT use of 2 MEN calling each other “husband”. Even posting it in the headline here at TUT kinda blew me away…

    The article was more about how MARRIED these two are more than harassing Ivanka. These are two gay kind of men living together, NOT husband and wife. They are just two more unhappy dissatisfied snowflakes raising a little boy whom they dress sharply …

    And seeking a moment in the sun. Someone grab their innocent child and then shove them back under the rock they crawled out from beneath.

    His husband, her wife ……………………..Dear Lord, what has the world come to?

    I have no respect for any of the Trumps, but this kind of shit is uncalled for. These two are creeps.

    And speaking of the rocks from under which they crawled out to grab our attention, whenever I see a news story of sedition, treason, corruption, hate-filled violence, racism, or debauchery, and the headline says such and such UNNAMED “person” did xyz, I always make a little bet with myself that nine times out of ten, when I read the full article and uncover the little rock under which the criminal is hiding, the perpetrator is going to turn out to be a Jew, and sure enough, often ten out of ten times in fact, I have correctly guessed the answer. Yup, guess what, it’s a fuckin’ Jew. Not a real big surprise, like ever!

    When I heard of this incident several days ago, I was only thinking that the unnamed perpetrator should be extremely glad that I am not Ivanka’s father, because after his attacking my daughter and two grandchildren on the flight, I would have paid the cowardly little dickless Jew cockroach and his “husband” a little personal visit, and me and my crew would have taken both of these little fuckers for a one-way car ride down by the Hudson. And of course, for Jews to attack and abuse women and children is an integral part of their natural cowardice, as displayed daily in Palestine. Attack someone like me, and I would have personally escorted them both from the plane sans their heads.

    So in this little sordid tale of Jew cowardice and abuse, we have little Danny Goldstein, a lawyer who identifies as a “woman,” and Matty Lasner, his “husband” who teaches at Hunter College, which is exactly why if you really want to make America great again, the people that Benjamin Franklin warned would ruin our republic in approximately one hundred years must be systematically removed from their positions of control over the fields of Law, Education, Media (especially media), Finance, Medicine, Food Production, and Government.

    And word to Goldstein and Lasner: It is your people that have ruined my country (exactly as Franklin predicted)! Make America Great Again and deport the Fifth Columnists “inside the gates” that seek our destruction.

    American Apartheid? While living in a waterfront condo in his exclusive section of America. So let’s understand he’s blaming who for his son’s depression as a result of his actions? Shining Example of a stand up guy for his son to emulate.
