Biden spotted on Amtrak train hours after announcing White House bid

A photo of former Vice President Joe Biden sitting casually on an Amtrak train just hours after announcing his 2020 presidential campaign is making the rounds on social media.

Biden, a known Amtrak traveler, can be seen sitting near aides on a train as they headed to New York, according to tweets shared by BBC North America bureau chief Paul Danahar.

Danahar said the image was taken just hours after Biden's campaign released a video online of the former vice president announcing his White House bid, ending months of speculation. Danahar confirmed to The Hill that Biden was on an Amtrak train.

The former vice president and longtime senator, nicknamed "Amtrak Joe," has used the train to commute from Delaware, where he lives, to Washington for decades.

Joe anyways. I am pleased he is getting donations. He will need it to take the primary and save the world from Trump with a victory in the general.

nothing to do with the slurs weíve seen so much of. You were just genuinely concerned where Biden was going on the train.

I wonder if Bernie uses Comcast. A lot of people do. Like McDonald's and Starbucks.

Hey the Starbucks guy is running, too. He doesn't like Democrats, though.

35. How petty. Do we get to fabricate evil-doing on Bernie's part

 

based on some random photo of him on a train, or is this a one-way dealio?

Btw, my first post 14 was all that was necessary as youíve now spent several posts denying your obvious snark just to come up with a bogus scenario over your great concern about Comcast. No need to deny what you obviously meant.

34. You appear to be using implication as a way to hide from what you said

 

I get it... it's not often we find the courage to get in front of our words and hold to our convictions. Clever dissembling is much more self-validating.

16. Would make sense since going the other way home would not.

 

But what does that have to do with him taking a train for travel. Does Bernie take a train or does he fly? Everyone can ask questions.

33. Honestly,

 

All the candidates will need corporate money to beef up their war chest for a GE fight. Is it what I want? No, but I'm pragmatic enough to know that they will need every damn penny to fight a corrupt GOP in the GE.

That's life.
