Airline jokes Trump falsely claiming victory is ‘like disembarking before the plane has landed’

After President Donald Trump falsely claimed an election victory early Wednesday while votes are still being counted, Ryanair joked about the claim, likening it to travelers exiting a still-airborne plane – in other words, not a good idea. 

“Trump declaring victory this early is like disembarking before the plane has landed,” the airline tweeted Wednesday morning, adding: “we don’t recommend.”

The election jokes didn’t stop there: Ryanair also referred to rapper and independent candidate Kanye West as “the type of President that would clap every time Air Force One lands.”

The European airline is one of many in the travel industry that have struggled amid the coronavirus pandemic. It has resumed some flights, though the U.K. announced beginning Thursday it will ban nonessential travel in a second COVID-19 shutdown. 

West appeared on the ballot in 12 states and saw more than a thousand votes in each of them, according to Wednesday morning data from the Associated Press. His current country-wide vote total is more than 60,000. More than 135 million votes have been counted so far.
