“Maybe some of the flight attendants ought to show some respect to us, OK?” the Fox News host complained.
“If you’re trying to feed a 2-year-old yogurt without a mask on and they decide to throw the mother off, I mean, I could go on and on about the absurdity of people who don’t have power, who are suddenly engaged and have power, and then they abuse it,” she said.
On Thursday, while announcing sweeping vaccination and testing requirements to fight the coronavirus, the president admonished unruly airline passengers for getting angry or violent when asked to wear facial coverings.
“By the way, show some respect,” he said, according to The Associated Press. “The anger you see on television toward flight attendants and others doing their job is wrong. It’s ugly.”

Twitter users quickly commented that Pirro’s reaction suggests she probably isn’t the best person to sit next to on a cross-country flight.

This lady was banned from the place where my cousin had her engagement party in Long Island because she stole a centerpiece. She would definitely yell at a flight attendant. https://t.co/SGnGeUmugY
