Chris Christie, the GOP presidential hopeful who has been known to be a bully, was kicked out of an Amtrak car on Sunday. Gawker was the first to report the incident as a fellow passenger, Alexander Mann, told the publication:

It seems that being placed in the wrong seat really put the New Jersey governor in a sour mood, and his smoothie obviously didn’t do much to lighten up his day. He was supposedly repeating the phrases, “This is frickin’ ridiculous” and “Seriously?! Seriously?!”

In a statement to the Huffington Post, Samantha Smith, a spokesperson for Christie, claimed that he had “accidentally” taken a seat in the quiet car without realizing it, and she apologized on his behalf.
