An unidentified woman was removed from a flight from Baltimore to Seattle on Saturday after berating a supporter of Donald Trump.

Scott Kotesky, the Trump supporter, posted the video on Facebook and wrote it was his "craziest experience ever on an airplane." The video quickly went viral.

"She has called me names and insulted me just for sitting down in this seat saying that I came here to celebrate today," Kotesky told a flight attendant, referring to Trump's inauguration.

The flight attendant asked the woman if there was a problem. She replied that she wanted him to change seats.

"You don't have that right," the flight attendant said, and left to get another attendant.

"You pretend you have the moral high ground but you put that man's finger on the nuclear button," the woman said, turning to Kotesky. "That man doesn't believe in climate change."

"Do you believe in gravity? Did you know gravity is just a theory?" she continued, using frantic air quotes when she said "believe."

Another flight attendant asked the woman to leave the plane.

"I paid for this seat and I'm sitting in it," she said. "He is in my space."

"She's spoken hostilities," Kotesky interjected.

The flight attendant continued to ask her to leave. She said she would be quiet and continued to attempt to keep her seat.

"I'm going home now. My mother-in-law, his mother, died … I'm going home now," the woman said. "There's no way I'm getting off this plane … My husband lost his mother. Have some respect."

But the flight attendants began to collect her bags. Her husband, who had been silent and avoiding eye contact throughout the ordeal, joined them.

While she was removed from the plane, passengers began chanting "U.S.A." and cheered.

Below is video of the initial confrontation:
