Brandon Bostian is the 32-year-old gay man who lawyered up after a deadly derailment in Philadelphia. The train was reportedly going twice the speed limit.
Bostian is a gay activist who previously worked at Target as a cashier before joining Amtrak, according to his LinkedIn.
The train hurtled off the tracks after making a left-turn at high speed; much like the USA under Obama.
And according to Democrats, the derailment was not caused by Bostian lead-footing the train to 106 MPH nine minutes after leaving the station like it was the DeLorean in ‘Back to the Future,’ but instead by Republicans unwilling to double AMTRAK’s $1.6 Billion annual subsidy to $3.2 Billion, or whatever else they’d like to spend so they can hire more gay Target cashiers to pilot choo-choo trains.
“While he is still interested in working for marriage equality, Bostian admitted that he is less enthusiastic this time around. “It’s kind of insulting to have to beg people for my right to marry,” he said. “I feel like we shouldn’t even have to have this fight.””
