As news broke this morning of an Amtrak train derailing in Washington, people across social media stopped what they were doing and for just a moment said a small prayer for everyone wounded and or killed in this horrible accident.
Sadly it seems other people could hardly WAIT to use this tragedy to push a political agenda though, like Joy Reid.
That Amtrak derailment is yet another reminder that America needs substantial infrastructure investment. Our priorities are all wrong. Tax cuts for the super rich and corporations are NOT more important than lifesaving investments in technology, transportation etc.

We don’t even know how many people are wounded and or dead yet, Joy. Maybe it would be a good idea to hold off on the preachy politics until families are at least notified of their hurt or dead family members.
Bodies aren’t even cold yet. What the hell is wrong with you?

Media. That’s what’s wrong with her.
Why didn't Obama do anything about the infrastructure?

How about the lives involved?

Shhh, she’s busy pretending the GOP doesn’t care about dead people.
The first launch of a new route. Amtrak registered it going 80+ mph coming around a curve. Sounds like human or electronic error, not the infrastructure itself. It's a fluid situation & the story may change, but MUCH TOO SOON to slam this accident as a cause of #taxreform.

It really does come off as just heartless and gross.
I'm hearing that was on a section of new track, that this was the first trip on it.

So if it was a section of a new track, this was not necessarily an issue with infrastructure.
Point is, we don’t really know yet.
But we’re pretty sure Joy won’t let a little thing like the truth get in the way of her narrative.
Dems had total control from 2009-11. Why didn’t they pass it then? I see you like to take advantage of any tragedy to spew your garbage.

It’s what they do.
Joy, while I appreciate your opinion very much, I feel that your assumption of the situation here is premature at best. This accident happened on a recently upgraded rail line and what caused this horrific event is yet to be determined.

Even people who support and follow her found her timing to be disrespectful and premature.
Oh, and here’s the real kicker, Joy agrees with Donald Trump … LOL.
The train accident that just occurred in DuPont, WA shows more than ever why our soon to be submitted infrastructure plan must be approved quickly. Seven trillion dollars spent in the Middle East while our roads, bridges, tunnels, railways (and more) crumble! Not for long!

When Joy Reid & Trump are both wrong, completely agree and would still use their positions to bash one another… pic.twitter.com/p4ypJL2fYi

Of course, Trump wasn’t using the dead and wounded to bitch about tax cuts, but it’s Joy’s just desserts that she agrees in some way with the president.
