Delta puts customers who harassed Romney, Graham on no-fly list
Delta Airlines has placed the customers who harassed GOP Sens. Mitt Romney (Utah) and Lindsey Graham (S.C.) on its no-fly list, company CEO Ed Bastian told Reuters.

The senators were seen in viral videos heckling supporters of President Trump after both expressed opposition to the Electoral College certification of President-elect Joe Biden's election victory last Wednesday.

Video from the day before the vote shows Romney confronted by hecklers at the airport in Salt Lake City, and subsequently heckled while aboard a flight to Washington, D.C. The Utah senator had previously indicated that he would not challenge the Electoral College vote.

"Why aren't you supporting President Trump?” one woman asked Romney while he was waiting at the gate. Video shared on Twitter shows Trump supporters screaming at Romney on the plane, with one yelling at him to resign.

Congress ultimately certified the Electoral Vote, though it was delayed by hours after a pro-Trump stormed the U.S. Capitol forcing lawmakers to evacuate.

Graham was harassed at an airport in Washington, D.C., on the Friday after Congress certified the Electoral Vote. Video of the incident shows a group following Graham through the airport.

Some can be heard screaming “audit the vote” and “you know it was rigged,” in reference to the presidential election.

So are all democrats calling for Trump or Cruz to just resign on no fly lists?

What about the animals that attacked rand Paul?

I can understand wanting to keep "extremists" off of their planes but how do they know those hecklers are extremists? Are we no longer allowed to question and protest our politicians who work for us?

Come on, man. This shite is wrong. What they did was not illegal.

Free speech again under assault. We can't allow this, our representatives are answerable to us.

It’s ok. We’re still a country that believes in freedom of speech...as long as it’s the “right” speech.

Why is that relevant? Delta doesn’t want obnoxious and inappropriate behavior on its flights

Yes, an airplane or an airport is an inappropriate venue for you to yell and scream at your elected officials.

An airline that has poor financials decides to ban passengers when air travel is at an all time low. Gentlemen, we can file this under Pissing Down Your Leg Then Shooting Yourself in the Foot.

Does Delta own the airport? I thought they were public.

Seems douchebaggish to me.

I’d love to hear how Delta banning unruly passengers does anything related to your freedom of speech. What these people said isn’t why they were black listed. It’s because they were obnoxious, unruly, and refused to stop when told to do so by the airline.

Private company and can refuse service. If they do this with all or disruptive flyers then no biggie.

The airlines are begging for a bailout. I'm sure Peter and Lesly threatened to withhold funding.

That’s a good example of political power.

You can terrorize a Minneapolis shopkeeper, no one cares, politicians are untouchable though.

I hope others put Delta on a "no board" list.

Ms. Lindsey realized his mistake I think. That Hannity interview where he looked like he was about to cry just makes me believe that unvote decision was made in the heat of the moment.

Mittens is the most smug and least self aware member of the Senate.

Either way. Yelling insults at public officials is not a crime. And all of you should know that the SCOTUS has held that we have a fundamental right to travel.

It appears the Uniparty strategy of having Big Business do what it’s technically illegal to do - applies to every right we have, and every aspect of our economy.

Globalism is poison.
