On Monday, the Washington Times reported that Star Trek actor John Cho blamed the forced removal of a United Airlines passenger on President Donald Trump.
“It’s hard not to see a connection between the environment Trump has created and what happened on that @united flight,” he wrote on Twitter.

Naturally, Cho got his clock cleaned on Twitter.
So Trump is responsible for the actions of a United Airlines decision and the actions of a Chicago (run by Democrats) police officer? RLY?

Trump is an incompetent dolt and can alter the behavior of private airline employees AT THE SAME TIME.

Apparently. Maybe the Russians had a hand in this as well…

The Times added:
Mr. Cho, like the passenger in the video, is Asian. But he didn’t specify whether he was making a claim of racial profiling (the passengers kicked off the flight were chosen at random via computer), charging excessive use of force by police, or accusing Mr. Trump’s brash personality of normalizing bullying — among the possible theories.
United Chief Executive Officer Oscar Munoz released a statement Monday afternoon saying the company was “moving with a sense of urgency” to review the incident.
“I apologize for having to re-accommodate these customers,” he said.
Aviation Department spokesperson Karen Pride told the Chicago Sun-Times that one officer “has been placed on leave effective today pending a thorough review of the situation.”
“The incident on United flight 3411 was not in accordance with our standard operating procedure and the actions of the aviation security officer are obviously not condoned by the Department,” she wrote in an email.
