Arab-American comedian Mo Amer had comedy material handed to him on a silver plate when he was unexpectedly upgraded to Business Class on a flight to Glasgow, Scotland, and seated to none other than Eric Trump! 

"I was just walking in and he was just sitting there with his Trump shirt on and I was like, 'is this real'?" Amer said in an interview with Buzzfeed. "Is this real? Is this a setup? I mean, I’m an Arab Palestinian, everything is a conspiracy, right? So when I walked into the plane I was like, 'what is this?' This is obviously from Allah, Allah is just trying to hook me up right now. That’s what’s happening."

After it all sunk in, Amer didn't waste any time to discuss Eric's father, US President-elect Donald Trump's policies on Muslims in America. 

The stand up comedian posted a selfie of him sitting down next to Eric, along with the caption:

"Just FYI I'm not getting that ID shit done. You gonna really make my people get ID cards and all this? You know we're not doing this s***," Amer told Eric.

However, Eric's unexpected response was, "Come on man. You can't believe everything you read. Do you really think we're gonna do that?"

Before the plane took off, Amer jokingly posted on Facebook saying, "Hey guys planes taking off...if I disappear and don't make it on tour YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO ME!! #Trump."
