NextImg:Amtrak Warns of Delays Due to '1st Amendment-Related Events' (the New 'Fiery But Mostly Peaceful'?)

We never would have predicted that Amtrak Northeast might have the Tweet of the Week, but they just might be awarded that distinction for this explanation for a DC delay:

A "First Amendment-related event"? Well, we can be certain they're not referring to a Trump rally or that tweet would no doubt be very different.

Apparently this is the "First Amendment-related event" Amtrak was talking about:

Hundreds of protesters calling for a cease-fire in Gaza gathered at Union Station in D.C. on Friday night, drawing a massive police presence and disrupting Metro service to the train station.

WTOP’s Scott Gelman reported Union Station was completely blocked off around 6:30 p.m. and that the demonstration began at the front of Union Station, but later moved to the side on First Street NE.

Crowds ultimately dissipated around 8 p.m., Gelman reported. Red Line trains had been bypassing the station, but regular service resumed after the crowds left.

First Amendment-related "crowds."

"First Amendment-related event" could become a thing now:

You can't make this stuff up.
