When professor Matthew Lasner and his attorney husband Dan Goldstein decided to track down and harass Ivanka Trump in late December, the couple likely had no idea of the firestorm they were about to create.
The incident between the two men and the soon-to-be first daughter — who was traveling on a JetBlue flight with her young son — quickly went viral, sparking a heated debate about whether or not Goldstein and Lasner were justified in their behavior.
In a clip that aired on his new show last week, Fox News’s Jesse Watters confronted Goldstein on the streets of Brooklyn — eager to learn whether he now regrets his decision to harass “a woman with her baby on a flight.”

Though Watters seemed to pull out all the stops to get a comment out of Goldstein, the encounter was very similar to an ‘interview‘ the two married men gave shortly after that now-infamous incident with Ivanka Trump.
In the end, it seems that publicly harassing an unsuspecting victim — and then broadcasting it to the world — can be a very different experience when you’re on the receiving end.
