A passenger on the train, Alexander Mann, told Gawker that Christie got on the train “last minute” and started yelling at his bodyguards. He then started making phone calls and had “intense” conversations, Mann reportedly said.
Christie said into his phone, “this is frickin’ ridiculous” and “seriously?! seriously?!” according to Mann.
Christie was also drinking a McDonald’s strawberry smoothie, Mann said, according to the report.
The Amtrak’s quiet car prohibits cell phone use and loud noise of any kind.
After about 10 minutes, Christie was asked to leave the quiet car, Mann was quoted as saying.
The most surprising part of the article is that he is referred to as “Republican presidential candidate.” I completely forgot he was running.
