Pilot removed from flight following rant about Trump, divorce

AUSTIN, TX (WFXB) – California-bound passengers were scared to fly after their pilot goes on a rant before take-off over the weekend.

An airline flight out of Texas was delayed Sunday because passengers thought their pilot may be mentally unstable.

United Airlines says the pilot boarded her plane in Austin in street clothes. Passengers say she then went on a rant over the intercom, speaking about her divorce and the presidential election.

She used profanity to describe Hillary Clinton and President Trump and said she was going to be on Oprah. The flight to San Francisco was delayed for two hours until the airline found a new pilot.
