ESPN personality Sage Steele missed her flight out of LAX because of the protests happening at many airport nationwide over President Donald Trump’s immigration order. The order blocks citizens of several predominately Muslim countries from entering the United States for 90 days.
Here was Steele’s take:
So THIS is why thousands of us dragged luggage nearly 2 miles to get to LAX, but still missed our flights. Fortunately, a 7 hour wait for the next flight to Houston won't affect me that much, but my heart sank for the elderly and parents with small children who did their best to walk all that way but had no chance of making their flights. I love witnessing people exercise their right to protest! But it saddened me to see the joy on their faces knowing that they were successful in disrupting so many people's travel plans. Yes, immigrants were affected by this as well. Brilliant. 🇺🇸
As a result of those comments, Steele is taking heat from her journalism colleagues — and not giving any ground.
