On a trans-Atlantic flight to Scotland Wednesday, an Arab-American comic named Mo Amer found himself seated next to someone he says was God's gift to him of comedy material — Eric Trump, second son of President-elect Donald Trump.
CNN reports that Amer took a selfie and posted it on social media with a description of their conversation after being "randomly" chosen to sit next to the younger Trump for the long flight.
"Hey guys heading to Scotland to start the U.K. Tour and I am 'randomly' chosen to sit next to none other than Eric Trump," he wrote.
"Good news guys Muslims will not have to check in and get IDs. That's what I was told. I will be asking him a lot of questions on this trip to Glasgow, Scotland. Sometimes God just sends you the material. #Merica#UKTour #HumanAppeal#ThisisNotAnEndorsement#Trump2016ComedyTour
Amer said he told Trump that he would not be getting ID nor registering as a Muslim. The younger Trump reportedly told Amer, "Come on man. You can't believe everything you read. Do you really think we're gonna do that?"
