United Airlines Trump conspiracy theoryOn Monday, Michael Hiltzik, a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer for the Los Angeles Times, issued a tweet suggesting that President Trump orchestrated the United Airlines passenger flap to distract the world.

“Just wondering: did Trump ask United CEO Oscar Munoz to distract the world from the White House follies today?” he asked.

Naturally, he got hammered on Twitter.

Good idea… Go outside, get some fresh air… Oh, wait, he’s in Los Angeles.  Nevermind.

Try “highly unlikely.”

Bingo.

But if it’s any consolation, Hiltzik isn’t the only liberal conspiracy theorist to put this out.  As we reported Monday, Star Trek actor John Cho also blamed Trump for what happened on that United Airlines flight.

BBC reported that Oscar Munoz, CEO of United Airlines, apologized for the incident, and didn’t even mention the president:

The CEO of United Airlines has apologized for the “truly horrific” removal of a passenger from an overbooked flight.

Oscar Munoz said he “continues to be disturbed” by the incident, during which a passenger was forcibly dragged, screaming, off a plane.

He said the company would “fix what’s broken so it never happens again”.

United’s parent company’s share price plummeted on Tuesday after a video of the incident went viral on Twitter.

What’s next?  Will liberals blame the Russians for this as well?

Apparently, it doesn’t.
