LaGuardia Is Like a “Third World Country,” Says Biden

February 7, 2014 | Andy Cush

Vice President Joe Biden had some choice words for LaGuardia Airport during a speech in Philadelphia yesterday.

“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,” he said. “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’s right, of course. But if the veep’s so disgusted by LaGuardia, I wonder what he’d think of NYC’s real third-world country: the Port Authority Bus Terminal.
