A passenger on an American Airlines flight from JFK to Athens, Greece, was asked to remove his shirt displaying a mugshot of President Donald Trump. The reason? The flight attendant deemed it “offensive” and “political.”

The passenger was taken aback by the request. He questioned the flight attendant, asking whether wearing a shirt with Trump’s image truly constituted a political statement.

The flight attendant insisted it did, saying, “I mean, I guess it is. I don’t think it gets more political than that,” adding, “For some people, it’s offensive.”

Jesse Watters discussed the situation on his show with co-host Pete Hegseth. Watters read out American Airlines’ response to the controversy: “Clothing displaying political messaging is not against our policy. We’ll move quickly to investigate the matter. A member of our team is reaching out to the customer to learn more about their experience.”

Hegseth expressed surprise at American Airlines’ response but also saw it as an opportunity for supporters of Trump to test the airline’s policy. He said, “I think everybody out there should find their MAGA gear and book an American Airlines flight. Let’s test the policy.”
