"He would've been 10 years younger at the time, too, so if anyone tried to get into the cockpit, he would've just thrown a few elbows and ended things right there." The unbelievable idiot also concluded the 9/11 attacks could have been prevented if the Navy's SEAL Team Six had been in charge of the World Trade Center.
