New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is having a bad morning.
First, he nearly missed his 9:55 Amtrak train from DC to New York. Then, he didn’t get the seat he wanted on the train. Then, to make things even worse, he got kicked out of the quiet car!
Alexander Mann, a passenger on his way home to Manhattan, was traveling in that very same quiet car when Christie got on, and promptly got off. He told Gawker:
He got on last minute yelling at his two secret service agents I think because of a seat mixup, sat down and immediately started making phone calls on the quiet car. After about 10 minutes the conductor asked him to stop or go to another car. He got up and walked out again yelling at his secret service. He was drinking a McDonald’s strawberry smoothie.
Mann also said that Christie was having an intense phone conversation, repeating the phrases, “this is frickin’ ridiculous” and “seriously?! seriously?!”
Thank god for that smoothie!
