Richard Blumenthal is a Democratic Senator from Connecticut.  And on Friday, he and the Mayor of Milford, Connecticut held a press conference about staying safe around commuter trains.  And for added effect, they did it on a commuter train platform.

 

 

But ironically, Blumenthal almost got HIT by a train during it . . . because he wasn't standing behind the yellow line when a train went by.  And it happened right after the mayor said, quote, "Safety, as you know, is PARAMOUNT."
