A train carrying House Republicans to a retreat crashed into a garbage truck in Crozet, VA. right outside of Charlottesville on Wednesday afternoon. One fatality was reported and many of the House Republican members eased fears of injury or death via social media accounts.
Breaking: I’m told the train carrying members of Congress to the GOP retreat at the Greenbrier has been in an accident. Apparently the train hit a truck – helicopters now overhead with doctors attending to injuries.

I am on the train in Virginia. I am fine. No one on the train was injured, as far as I know. Please keep the three people on the truck (and their families) in your prayers.

Of course the empathetic progressives on the left, the ones who have huge hearts for those who aren’t citizens of our great nation, decided to crack jokes while the injuries were being treated and the head count was beginning. Never let the mocking of a tragedy towards Republicans go to waste!
A trainload of Republicans on their way to a pricey retreat hit a garbage truck. My friend Russ calls that karma.

An AMTRAK train carrying Republican members of congress has hit a dump truck near Charlottesville: Hazmat workers on the scene are reportedly having trouble discerning which garbage is more hazardous — Republicans or the trash from the truck. #TrainCrash

If that is not a metaphor for the Republican Party right now I don't know what is.

God, I hope an immigrant wasn't driving the truck.

It’s almost like the train’s progress was “obstructed,” and reportedly by a dump truck. Doesn’t get much more poetic than that.

don't worry the @republicans are safe in the amtrak collision the only loss of life was garbage workers who are not important to even the msm who are complicit in destroying the middle class and sucking up to the racist @gop.

Truly sickening, but just a bit expected.
So the same people who are "offended by Trump's rhetoric" are out today mocking this horrible Amtrak accident… got it. #TrainCrash

I am amazed at the number of verified progressives who think mocking a fatal train crash is OK because GOP members were on board. This is the state of political discourse?

Dead on, Dana!
And many were forced to delete their tweets. But thankfully, Social Media is Forever…
