After Attorney, Daniel Goldstein, accosted Ivanka Trump on a JetBlue flight this week, her supporters are hitting the lawyer where it hurts – his pocket book.
Since the confrontation that resulted in the two men being kicked off the plane, Ivanka’s supporters have set their sites on Goldstein’s husband, Matthew Lasner.
Lasner, an urban studies professor at Hunter College and author, has seen a gigantic increase in negative reviews on his book “High Life: Condo Living in the Suburban Century”, which sells on Amazon.com.
One review, written by “Amazon Customer”, said that Lasner is a, “liberal idiot that harasses a young mother and her three children aboard a Jet Blue airline flight…”
Another review, while a bit more understated, said, “Left me feeling verbally assaulted. Almost as if I had jetlag. I won’t be taking this flight again anytime soon.”
Daily Mail reported that there was only one review on the book out of 106 that had made a verified purchase, which was made in 2013.
While most of the reviews were against Lasner and his book, one Amazon user tried to fight back by leaving a five-star review. After praising the book they added, “Not recommended for white supremacists.”
While Lasner has defended his spouse saying that, “My husband expressed his displeasure in a calm tone, JetBlue staff overheard, and they kicked us off the plane, according to TMZ, Goldstein was abrasive and rude shouting out, “Why is she on our flight? She should be flying private.”
Shortly before the encounter, Lasner had tweeted (and then removed), “Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband chasing them down to harass them. #banalityofevil“.
