Find Out What MSNBC Anchor Says Is The Cause of The Amtrak Train Crash

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, never one to be confused with a future candidate for Mensa, put on his big boy investigator pants yesterday and determined was caused the Amtrak train derailment in Philadelphia.

Straight lines.

On three separate occasions yesterday, Matthews suggested that the train crash occurred because Amtrak lines do not travel in a straight line.

Call off the investigation. Problem solved. Simply straighten out the tracks, and these accidents won’t occur in the future.

At one point, he even lamented the fact that in communist China, they’re willing to draw a straight line in designing their train right-of-ways, even if it means going through your house.

Because that’d be a good thing here in America.

Watch the montage below …

Here is the transcript of Matthew’s comments:

“But we have a country where people can complain. In Communist countries like China, they just draw a straight line, whether it goes through your house or not, it’s a straight line. We have this Amtrak, I’ve been taking it for a half a century, it doesn’t go in a straight line. In this case, it tried to make a turn and turned over! Because there’s so many turns on that route. How do you get rid of the turns?… Let’s talk about the track. You take the train every night home. And you take it too, as well. You know how it’s rickety. You know it jumps around a lot. It’s like the Wild West, some parts of that route. Do we need to have a better right-of-way? Can we clear a straight line for this train? How fast can a train go if it’s going like this?”

It didn’t turn over because it tried to take the turn, it turned over because it tried to take a turn designed for 50 mph at 106 mph.

No word on whether or not Matthews would also support straightening out all of our highways as well.

What do you think of Matthews’ assessment of the Amtrak train crash?

  • LMAO! Sounds like his mouth was going 106 while his brain was still at 50!

    But seeing as it is MSNBC maybe that is a requirement for being hired.

  • MSNBC is basically what you get when 1st graders play "Lets pretend were a TV news show(which is basically what they do) and do stories and everything!!!" they are going to do a 2 hour special on how to lower the national debt and boost the economy. It's quite simple we simply print more dollars to pay the bills. Wow another problem solved! They will solve conflict problems by making all those involved to be nice to each other and then they can have some candy! while we are at it, let's go ahead and make all roads straight too.

  • Let's run the train through your house Chris and while we're at it we'll impose communism on you and your Family. One wrong word and it is to the deepest dungeon with you, no turns just a straight line.
