To get to the Bronx, Yang could have easily switched to the B train, or D train at 125th Street — but social media users didn’t interpret it that way, and pounced at the opportunity to mock the city politics newcomer.
“I’ll be curious to hear what Mr. Yang learns about the Bronx after his A train ride,” quipped retired city journalist Clyde Haberman. “Whenever I took that train — I lived as a boy at its northern terminus — it never went to the Bronx. Still doesn’t.”
“The A train doesn’t go to the Bronx. Unless it’s a magic train,” another tweeter scoffed.
“It’s Monday. Who’s going to tell him?” commented State Sen. Jessica Ramos (D-Queens) — a supporter of Yang’s opponent Scott Stringer — nodding at Yang’s knack for attracting online ire over posts that appear to poke holes in his New Yorker authenticity.
