Vice President Joe Biden, never one to hide what he’s thinking, said Thursday that New York’s LaGuardia Airport feels like it’s “in some third world country.”
“If I blindfolded someone and took them at 2:00 in the morning into the airport in Hong Kong and said ‘where do you think you are,’ they’d say, ‘this must be America, it’s a modern airport,’” Biden said during a speech on infrastructure in Philadelphia.
“But if I blindfolded you and took you to LaGuardia Airport in New York, you must think, ‘I must be in some third world country.’ I’m not joking,” he added as the audience broke out in laughter.
Biden compared LaGuardia to a third-world country. Which makes me wonder if Biden has even been to a third-world country.
I’m personally a fan of LaGuardia Airport. It’s easy to get in and out of. The food options aren’t huge, but they aren’t bad either.
But I feel really bad for Biden if he ever decides to fly into Westchester Airport instead of LaGuardia. Boy would he be in for a shock!
I almost missed a flight once in Westchester because they sent everyone in my flight out of the terminal because they ran out of room. They suddenly got clearance to take off so rushed everyone back into the terminal. A suspicious bag then shut down the one security line into the back.
