Train full of Republican lawmakers and their families on the train.  So far, no names being given out.

PLEASE tell me this was not planned.

Hadn't watched the news since the debates, and Toy just happened to have it on FOX when I turned it on to watch cartoons, so I watched.
I feel for the family of the truck driver, but have to question, why did this nut try and beat a train to deliver trash?
He was the single fatality in all of this, and amazingly, the train took serious damage as well.
I point this out because in our pursuit to save fuel, we redesigned the engines to be more arrow dynamic, enabling the truck, to instead of being thrust forward or to the side, it was forced up to the windows of the engineer.

I would say shit happens, as the only one dead is the driver of the truck.

Nah, you would attack the center of the train and cause a derailment. This was seriously driver error, and a drug test will show, just how much in error the driver was.
Crank is still rampant, especially amongst people who drive for a living. It always pushes one to be in a hurry for no reason.

I wonder who is footing the bill for this little adventure? The Greenbriar is not exactly Motel 6. A leased train to and from. They won't be drinking Cokes and eating hamburgers. Folks this is an example of the "Swamp".

I was wondering the very same thing. Are we footing the bill for family members as well?

This trainwreck seems to be a metaphor, it was, after all, a trash truck colliding with the gop'E,.

Fox interviewed one of the Reps on the phone.  Sorry, I did not hear his name.  He said he and his wife both noticed the train had sped up to a noticable degree just before the crash.

CHILDREN on board.  :cry: :sad:

Just heard on Fox.

Paul Ryan was on the train.  Unhurt.
James Comer (R-KY) was on the train.
3 Congressmen that are doctors were on the train.  I never heard of any of them.  One was Dr. Tucker Marshall (?) All 3 jumped into action to tend to the injured.

Mitch McConnell was NOT on the train.

IF it were not for the train being hit, we would not know about this family member outing.  It would be one more thing we paid for and did not know about.

Watch them scramble to find funding for this from private donors. Bet ya money that's what will happen. They've been exposed.

I am going to disagree as I do not think the media will ask about this and GOPe will just let it slide.
