"Sometimes God just sends you the material," wrote Mohammed Amer.

The Arab-American comedian was en route from New York to Scotland when he was bumped up to first class and seated next to none other than Eric Trump, charmingly assigned to spend six hours side-by-side. He knew he had the privilege of proximity to the royal family, not only because of Trump's unforgettable face and the TRUMP FAMILY CREST on his baby blue sweater.

Hey guys heading to Scotland to start the U.K. Tour and I am "randomly" chosen to sit next to non other than Eric Trump....

Amer did not throw away his shot to ask the incoming-First Son and integral part of the Trump propaganda corps a few questions about the future of America.

“Good news guys Muslims will not have to check in and get IDs. That’s what I was told," he wrote in the post.

The accomplished comedian, best known for being a third of the trio Allah Made Me Funny, told BuzzFeed, "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."

According to BuzzFeed, Amer and Trump exchanged pleasantries, and Amer told him, "You have no idea how fantastic this is for me right now. My name is Mohammed. Salams. I’m a standup comedian. This is fantastic for me."

They talked for a good half an hour before E.T. fell asleep.

Amer addressed Trump straight-on about his daddy's proposed Muslim ban and registry, to which he replied, "Ah, come on, man. You can’t believe everything you read. Do you really think we’re gonna do that?"

The comedian got serious, asking Trump about the crazy, hate-filled campaign, to which"he basically acknowledged the fact that his father played this thing like a mad genius and that’s how he got elected and he admitted it."

Amer got a scary insight into the Trump machine, adding, “He also seemed disconnected from the reality of race attacks and violence. The vibe that I got, this was a game to them and they had no regrets and they did it to win and they will most likely keep doing it."

Hopefully meeting a real, live Muslim could somehow help the Trumps find the humanity in themselves to see the humanity in others.

Oh, also, it's worth noting that Amer told BuzzFeed that he didn't vote, but would have if Bernie Sanders was on the ticket. Never meet your heroes.
