Icon27 Train Carrying GOP Congressmen To Retreat Involved In Accident

Article here.

Anyone want to guess what the over/under will be in the conspiracy theory department?

It sounds like a sad accident to me; I'll leave it up to police etc to figure out the cause.

I'm happy to hear that (so far, anyway), no one was killed.

That said, a train carrying GOP members hitting a trash truck is oddly ironic.

Latest report is one dead and another seriously injured neither are Congresspeople or staff.

The metaphor is getting worse. Also, the Greenbrier where they are headed is owned by WV governor who had a conversion to being a Republican last summer after being elected as a Democrat. He has never put his businesses into a blind trust or otherwise completely separated from them. His children are running them. So he makes out from the business, plus the federal costs of POTUS attending the gathering. If it still happens.
