The United States has announced that the country will be placing a temporary ban on all Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 flights, following the tragic and deadly airplane crash in Ethiopia on Sunday which claimed the lives of all 157 passengers and crew on board. Following the ban on the Boeing’s aircrafts, US president, Donald Trump, decided to chime in with his “expert” opinions (we all know how he knows more about anything than anyone) on the matter, and insulted Albert Einstein in the process.

Many countries, including South Africa, have opted to ground some Boeing aircrafts, especially all Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 jets, as the Ethiopian Air crash involved a Boeing 737 Max 8. Shortly after take-off from Bole airport in Addis Ababa, the pilot had requested permission to return to the airport because he was reporting issues with flight control. Tragically, the aircraft went down shortly after take off. This is the second deadly crash involving the 737 Max 8 model of Boeing in a short amount of time, after one of Lion Air’s flights went down in Indonesia in October 2018, claiming the lives of all 189 people on board.

The US joined other countries (more than 70, including China and Canada) by imposing a ban on the models of Boeing aircrafts that have been involved in crashes. The country was criticised for being one of the lasts to issue a ban, due to apparent business links between Donald Trump and Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg.

Before placing the ban on the aircrafts, Donald Trump took the opportunity to tell the world how much he knows about planes and how he doesn’t want Albert Einstein to fly his planes.


I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t mind having Albert Einstein, one of the greatest minds of our time, fly my planes.
