“The Amtrak derailment is yet another reminder that America needs substantial infrastructure investment. Our priorities are all wrong,” she tweeted. “Tax cuts for the super rich and corporations are not more important than lifesaving investments in technology, transportation etc.”
A curious statement, considering that the derailment occurred on a new track built specifically for a state of the art high-speed rail. Reid issued a correction. Eventually.
In July of last year, Reid tweeted the following bit of nonsense: “Donald Trump married one American (his second wife) and two women from what used to be Soviet Yugoslavia: Ivana-Slovakia, Melania-Slovenia.” Ivana Trump is not from Slovakia. She’s from the Czech Republic, the other part of what was formerly called Czechoslovakia, which also, by the way, was not part of Yugoslavia. Also, Yugoslavia was never part of the Soviet empire. As usual, careful with the facts.
