It’s not funny, anymore, America. OK, it’s a little bit funny, but the 46th President of the United States has officially gone around the bend — you already knew that — and he’s not coming back. From yesteryear.
As we reported earlier, Biden’s “unhinged from reality” comments are becoming more and more unhinged. From claiming he had been riding Amtrak for 36 years during his eight years as president — no, really — to again telling a debunked story about an Amtrak worker for the fourth time — as president.
Anyway, my favorite fairy tale was about how Joe’s going to “take, literally, millions of automobiles off the road.” And how is Joe going to do that, you ask?
Even better, what does our clueless president plan to replace all of those millions of cars with? How are 329.5 million Americans going to get around, every day? To work? The grocery store? On vacation?
No, really — train travel. I know. Here’s Joe:
“We will take literally millions of automobiles off the road, saving tens of millions of barrels of oil, dealing with cleaning up the air. This is not hyperbole, this is a fact.”
Yeah, no. Sorry, Joe.
Then Biden got even more bizarre as he bragged about the $66 billion in government (taxpayer) spending to subsidize trains in his so-called “infrastructure” bill.
“I got more money for passenger rail than the entire Amtrak system cost, to begin with. We’re going to change the nation in a big way.”
Earth to Joe: This is not going to happen, pardner.
Here’s more, via Breitbart:
Amtrak continues to enjoy heavy subsidies from Congress even though it has famously lost money for 50 years. Since 1971, Amtrak has cost taxpayers more than $100 billion. But Biden’s proposed plan sparked Amtrak to share a dream list of even more connected cities across the country by 2035. In Scranton, Biden spoke at length about his long history of riding Amtrak, boasting he rode the train more than two million miles while he was a senator and vice president.
Needless to say, as we recently reported, Joe loves trains. But to (delusionally) believe that millions and millions are going to sit back and let this guy take millions of cars off the road — and replace automobile travel with train travel? What can you say? How hard can you laugh?
And again, the following is a bit funny — but sad, at the same time.
“You should name half the line after me. I am the most railroad guy you’re ever going to meet.”
What do you wanna bet Joe’s got one of those old school train engineer caps?
Probably asks “Dr.” Jill if they can “play choo-choo, tonight.”
