Bill Clinton once famously defended his truthfulness, responding to charges of perjury, “It depends upon what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is.” He had claimed there is “nothing going on” with Monica Lewinsky, and suggested that was true at the time he said it and that is refers to the present tense.
A woman on board a United Airlines flight to Las Vegas became similarly philosophical about language, claiming she is “wearing a mask” albeit not using it to actually cover her mouth.
A furious United Airlines passenger was caught on video screaming ‘I’m wearing a f***ing mask’ while pulling the face covering beneath her mouth on a flight to Las Vegas.
…’I’m wearing a mask, I’m wearing a mask, I need to get to Vegas,’ the woman says, becoming more irate by the moment.
VEGAS BABY 😷😂 ##unitedairlines
VEGAS PT 2 ##unitedairlines
Other passengers disputed her take on what it means to wear a mask, with one heard saying “You’re not wearing a mask, you’re not wearing a mask.”
The flight’s pilot can be heard in the video being similarly vague in use of language, saying that the flight will leave in an “expeditious manner” albeit delayed by this woman. Will it be expeditious, or delayed?
That’s when the woman takes her bag and begins to walk down the aisle… “before sliding into an empty seat a few rows ahead.” But everyone wants to leave in an ‘expeditious manner’ so another passenger yells at her to ‘get off’ as passengers can be heard “cussing out the woman.”
