It ain’t easy bein’ Joan Walsh. This afternoon, she revealed that she’s been suffering from some serious travel woes:

If she was looking for sympathy, she didn’t really get it:

Ouch! That stings.

But maybe, just maybe, there was an even more sinister reason for Walsh’s bad experience:

That’s gotta be it.

Ain’t that the truth! Walsh should probably avoid Southwest for a while.

    Oh my, poor Joan, I’m laughing so hard at your expense.

    • I Am Breitbart

      SO AM I!!!!!! LOL!!!!


        Two woids: ding and bat.

        • robcrawford2

          You insult a great woman by falsely associating her with Joan Walsh.

    • Fhalkyn Phoenix

      Better issue a non-apology apology!

  • Zathras11 @B5

    When you are known primarily for being a whining little 8!tch, you need check yourself.

    • conservativechick

      Just think how much better off we would all be if she had her way and we had only ONE government run National Airline? hahaha

  • whateverdear

    They just couldn’t let her flaunt her privilege in peace, could they?

    • conservativechick

      I love Southwest. Never had a bad experience. Must be her. 😉

      • TugboatPhil ✓Mate

        You’re probably right. I think Joan has a bad experience everywhere she goes. So does everyone around her.

  • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    Joanie, Joanie, Joanie. Probably not a good idea to whine about your white privilege going awry. Most folks would like to see you take about 20 more trips from hell, ya little race monger you.

  • gregl311

    Must have been white people. How dare they pick on poor Joan Walsh. Oh, the racism!

    • Ken Alan Draper

      If only she she hadn’t insisted in only speaking Jive, she’d have gotten better service.

      • Dangerous Politics

        That so reminds me of the movie Airplane, LOL! Maybe she should’ve asked for the tickets to the smoking section.

        • Ken Alan Draper

          ask & ye shall receive

          • Dangerous Politics

            Classic! Can you imagine them making a movie like that nowadays?

          • gregl311

            Sure they could make a movie like that. As long as it was directed by a liberal and not a conservative like David Zucker. Because liberals can’t be racist no matter how racist they are.

          • trixiewoobeans

            Tarantino, so they can have guns too.

      • Dangerous Politics

        I wonder if when the plane Joan’s plane landed they announced: “Flight 547, SW Air, San Fran to LAX, now arriving at gate 12, er, gate 13, er, gate 14… gate 15… gate 16….”

        • Ken Alan Draper

          maybe she could inflate the auto pilot in an emergency.

    • PatriotRG

      they should know she is an honorary black person after all all those black boy freinds makes her black – at least from them em inside

  • PeterP

    Hi – friggin – larious.

  • lesterwink23

    Wow, she’s unbearable no matter what she’s talking about…

  • Perry

    Should’ve flown Africa Air. Oh, wait

    • Ken Alan Draper

      or Valuejet! oh, wait

      • Moejoe

        You haven’t lived until you’ve flown Zimbabwe Air with Captain Loco. Seriously. Sandwich? Um, no.

        • Ken Alan Draper

          talk about your family name affecting your career. could be worse I suppose, he could have tried psychology.

  • JeffWRidge

    The ticket agents probably neglected to kiss the hem of her robes.

  • Juan Pablo

    Global warming occuring at a time of immense white privilege and economic inequality (caused by bush) caused repressed rage by evil bigots clinging to our guns and bibles forcing south west to not recognize you as the spokesperson for all oppressed minorities/approved victim groups.

    Or I’d just chalk this up to #firstworldproblems

    • WisconsinPatriot

      You win! Awesome rant!

    • Pat

      Truly awesome — you win!!

    • DallenH

      #firstworldproblems applies to half of what is in the news lately as a smoke screen for the failures of this administration.

    • plaingolf

      I’m white and I wish I had the time to be inconvenienced by any airline going anywhere out of NJ !

  • ChampionCapua

    @exjon The REAL problem with SouthwestAir is that there’s still too many white people breathing it. @joanwalsh #SalonPitch

  • DonaldDouglas

    Kids traveling — the horror!

    • trixiewoobeans

      How on earth did they make it full-term, through the birth canal, and out in one piece into the arms of….a parent? Outrageous! War on Women!

      • Emily B

        The poor, poor parents. Burdened with all those brats. And how dare they take them on a trip!!

      • Paige Jackson

        Walsh probably sprang full-grown from the head of Bette Midler or something.

        • trixiewoobeans

          Or something.

  • Howard Roark

    Joan Walsh knows a lot about Aviation Americans

    • Ken Alan Draper

      I once talked to the chief pilot, Aviation Americans travel in tribes…I did not know this.

      • TexasMom2012

        Oh dear, I thought Aviation Americans were a clan..

  • smack_libs_around

    Now she’ll rage against Twitter and al those ‘mean white people’ saying mean things to her.

    • Ken Alan Draper

      at least 4 of the mean white people were Eddie Murphy & Arsenio Hall in makeup

  • LegalizeShemp

    Joan, you don’t get a bag of peanuts on Southwest, it keeps the fares low.

    “Joan, we nailed that landing at SFO, quit complaining!” Sincerely, Asiana Airlines

      • Ken Alan Draper

        I see the local SFO T.V. anchor downvoted that comment LOL!

  • Ya Dont Say?


  • kporqueria

    It would be cosmic justice if Joan Walsh were a victim of the knockout game. Although it would be a very remote chance since the only black person she gets near is the doorman to her apartment.

  • Jake Bradford

    I thought she flew exclusively by broom.

    • PeterP

      A broom-pilot with an instrument rating.

    • TocksNedlog

      That stick up her ass ain’t no broom.

  • Frank Drebin

    The ticket agents weren’t being rude, Joanie. They probably couldn’t see you.

      Actually the high speed rail is planned to bypass those conservative farmers in the Central Valley.

    Bitching about a flight…..that’s what you call ‘terminal’ PMS. BAM!

  • HARP2

    I don’t get it.
    Is her broom in for repairs ?

    • Ken Alan Draper

      her dyson was in the shop, she’s way too high maintanence to ride around on a simple broom.

      • 0bamasnought

        Nature abhors a vacuum.
        It had to be a broom.

        • Ken Alan Draper

          LOL! most people abhor Joan Walsh, but she seems to get along just fine.

  • greenrotgut

    Joan just take the high speed train you Californiatards were promised.

    • Ken Alan Draper

      Ahh california, Just entering the 19th century.

  • unknown

    Oooh, it’s like the Six Degrees of Separation game with racism; Southwest Airlines is associated with the Southwest portion of the United States —> the Southwest portion of the United States includes border states like Arizona —> Arizona has ID laws that many believe affects the Hispanic population —> RACISM!!!

    • NRPax

      I can beat that.

      Southwest Airlines employs white people —>RACISM!!!

  • LinTaylor ✓vitrified

    Ladies and gentlemen, this is why we have the phrase “First-world problems”.

    • aemoreira81

      There is a site dedicated solely to that…called WhiteWhine.

    It’s all that whinging that has turned her ugly.

    “What’s the Matter With Flight People?”

    • Ken Alan Draper

      Flight people can’t jump.

  • William2010

    Question for Joan Walsch, were the mean, meanie ticket agents, etc. mean white people, black people, Hispanic-Latino People, Asian People, Arab People, or what?

    Where they male or female?

    Where they Homosexuals, Lesbians, Transsexuals, Transgendered, or Pedophiles? San Francisco has a high population of these.

    Where they Atheists, Secular Humanists, Catholic, other Christian denomination, Muslim, Jewish, Sikh, Hindu, Jain, Ba’hai, Zoroastrian, Buddist (Shinto, other?) or other?

    Were they US Government Employees or Civilian-Private employees?

    Where they Capitalists, Free Market Conservatives, Socialists, Communists, Fascists, Libertarians, Liberals, Leftists, Republicans, Democrats, or other, or any combination thereof?

    Once we can determine the categories these meanies fall into we can have a better idea.

  • WendyOh

    Why do people choose cut rate airlines and then complain when they don’t get world class service?

  • IndySkye

    I want see the tweet from the Southwest agent that tells about the horrible time they had being polite to a vile shrew who was traveling between SFO and LAX. Hopefully they sent her expensive luggage to Buffalo.

  • keyboard jockey
    • gunnyjeep

      LMAO – Good one

  • Samantha Pfaff

    OMG!! Kids travelling? What could possibly be worse? That should be illegal! People shouldn’t travel with their kids, Joan Walsh might be irritated!!

    We flew Southwest out of the airport across the bay. The plane was on time, we got to our destination on time, everyone was polite, and there were even children on board. I guess I should have tweeted about that.

    • World B. Free

      Sounds pretty much like every Southwest flight I ever took. Pleasant, and on time.

  • aemoreira81

    I’m probably not the first person to say this, but this is definitely a first-world problem. Before the days of social media, this wouldn’t be aired in public. As for the replies, that appears to be more trolling that actual racism; had I seen it, I’d probably reply with “Meanwhile, in Africa…”

  • $9844146

    It’s hard out there on a Joan Walsh.

  • Guest

    Joan Walsh is the beneficiary of White Female Privilege. The world belongs to White Women now so no more complaining.

  • Kristine ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    I know she’s a tool, but everyone is allowed to bitch about bad customer service, even if it is a “first world problem”. 😀


  • Deborah Hallsted

    Well, to be fair and balanced, she doesn’t know what it’s like to grow up to be an enlightened white person either.

  • Kaya Hund

    These are the types of tweets from public figures that I just don’t understand — they invite ridicule. Who on earth cares whether Ms. Walsh had a bad experience flying (or a bad hair day, for that matter)?

  • DwellsInFire

    Airlines too crowded? Why don’t you take Amtrak? Or is that below you?

    • TocksNedlog

      Amtrak is an entitlement fo the po people.

  • Stu Gotts

    When I first saw the headline I thought it read “Joan Walsh whinnies” which, given her Mr. Ed-like choppers, isn’t really much of a stretch.

  • Kevin Davis

    Joan who??

  • PeterP

    Joan the Tolerant doesn’t like kids? Could it be because that little Romney black baby was on the plane?

  • PeterP

    Confucius say, “white woman who denounces white privilege should not complain about hardscrabble life of rude ticketing agents.”

  • PeterP

    Clearly, Saint Joan is whining because she is not a beneficiary of flight privilege.

  • EllisWyatt

    ” … Rude ticketing agents gave no info”

    When the f_ck are we leaving?! Don’t you know who I am?! — Joan

    ” … Kids traveling”

    If you insist on overpopulating the planet your privileged offspring, couldn’t you at least take a van or something instead of making me sit near them?! — Joan

  • TocksNedlog

    Karmic justice dictates that she was forced to sit next to a kid who turned around and puked in her lap.

  • AmericanMom

    Apparently she boarded the white flight in error.

  • Obama my Nigga

    What’s funny about the comment “they must have recognized you” is that it is possibly true. The software the airlines use to track passengers can flag problem customers. It’s used so the airline employees are forewarned to use their very best customer management skills to avoid escalating problems.

  • #NeverTrump7 Annie

    Maybe SOUTH-WEST knew her to be an insufferable NORTH-EAST liberal?

  • Jim Denney

    No private plane? How very un-Pelosi of her.

  • BubbaTex

    Joan you ignorant bitch

  • robert anthony

    Flight times kept changing? Sorta like law under Democrats? # Never had such a bad President-king experience.

  • robert anthony

    Maybe she needs her own jet…like ‘working class hero’ Ed Schultz.

  • The 57th State© ℅EF™

    Thank you, Twitter. Wonders never cease. This poor, cracker wasn’t treated like the important hack she thinks she is. Race-baiting imbecile.

  • Libertarian Advocate

    Who is Joan Walsh? Why should I care about her?

  • Rebecca Adams

    Why isn’t she on air amerika?

  • PeterP

    We hate Joan Walsh for the same reason she hates herself: She’s white.

  • ceemack

    If there was such a thing as “white privilege”, she wouldn’t have been flying Southwest.

  • right_on

    Joan should try walking. Yeah, it may take longer, but in the long run, you can’t complain about anything, save not opting for an air carrier to transport you.


    If only she told them she knew more about black people than they did

  • RedSoloCup

    When is she going to finally achieve her dream and have her skin dyed black?

  • lillymckim

    Too bad SW I hope next time you will leave her baggage on the tarmac …

  • sodakhic

    Why are liberals flying in the first place?

  • Oilfart1

    when people like Ms. Walsh have the same problems we ALL have, they think it only happens to them. I find it surprising she would subject her family to Southwest where the seats ain’t assigned and no food is served, except those crappy nuts.

    • Paige Jackson

      I think she’d tell you that while it might happen to other people, it only MATTERS when it happens to her.

  • PeterP

    That a white woman like Joan Walsh is top dog on the issue of white privilege is itself an example of white privilege. If she were not a hypocrite, she would quit & let a black man like Tim Wise take over

  • supplyguy

    Ok, I have a theory. Stick w/ me on this. She was in San Fran w/ her kids…sooo, the ticketing agent was probably gayyyy, sooo…it was straight up discrimination against a breeder!

  • DBNinKY

    Poor Joan “I-have-insurance-stupid” Walsh. Enlightened as she is, she just can’t seem to catch a break.
