ABC News Deputy Political Director & Political Reporter Michael Falcone tweeted at approximately 10 a.m. that the Acela train he was riding had been “delayed” in Baltimore and that he was sitting next to Amtrak CEO Joe Boardman.
Falcone tweeted, “Acela to NY delayed for ‘unknown period’ Should I feel better that the Amtrak CEO is sitting next to me?”
It quickly became apparent that the CEO’s presence wouldn’t fix the train. A subsequent tweet from Falcone noted, “BAD sign: Amtrak CEO Joe Boardman just got OFF the train to take a car to Wilmington.”
Another government subsized program that can’t get its act together. It’s a target rich environment for way-too-easy shots, but just let me say I find it fascinating that not even Joe “Amtrak” Biden can make one train arrive on time to a ceremony naming a train station after him… with the Amtrak CEO on board. And they want us to expand the federal government????
