‘This is frickin’ ridiculous’: Chris Christie gets booted from Amtrak quiet car for being too loud while on cellphone.

News sites reported that Christie, who got on to the train at the last minute, had been angry over a seating mix-up and had begun to make phone calls – an action against the quiet car rules. Chris Christie’s presidential campaign would like you to know that he is sorry—so very, very sorry—for disrupting the peace and serenity of Amtrak’s quiet car during his Sunday morning commute. “On a very full train this morning, the Governor accidentally took a seat in Amtrak’s notorious quiet car,” Samantha Smith, Christie’s spokeswoman, told The Daily Beast.

Chris Christie of New Jersey, never the meek or mousy type, was ejected from the “quiet car” of the Acela Express train from Washington on Sunday for talking too loudly on his cellphone, a spokeswoman confirmed. The struggling 2016 candidate “got on last minute yelling at his two Secret Service agents I think because of a seat mix-up, sat down and immediately started making phone calls on the quiet car,” passenger Alexander Mann told Gawker. Christie, a Republican presidential candidate who has been struggling in single digits in polls, was returning from an appearance on “Face the Nation” on CBS. Christie appeared to be in the midst of an intense conversation and was heard repeating phrases including “this is frickin’ ridiculous” and “seriously?” according to Mann. “After about 10 minutes the conductor asked him to stop or go to another car.

He attracted controversy during his appearance by criticising the Black Lives Matter movement, which he said was “calling for the murder of police officers”.
