Though she denies it, Amy Schumer isn’t the only member of her family who has some acting ability, as the Internet was treated earlier this week to her cousin, Sen. Chuck Schumer’s Oscar worthy performance in response to President Trump’s travel ban.
Schumer worked up some tears over the ordeal, a ploy most folks saw through like a pane of glass, prompting Trump to respond in typical fashion, accusing the senator of “fake tears.”
This statement, apparently, didn’t sit too well with his famous cousin, who came to Chuck’s “emotional rescue.”According to Fox News:
The 35-year-old comedian responded to a tweet made by Trump claiming the New York senator, who is her second cousin on her father’s side, cried “fake tears” when he blasted Trump’s recent executive order that implemented new travel and immigration restrictions for citizens of seven countries.
“I know Chuck Schumer and HE CANNOT act trust me,” she wrote on Instagram. “He can barely smile on cue. He can’t help but be transparent and genuine. He was hurt for those people and all the people facing such unconstitutional injustice.”Schumer also used the social media post as an opportunity to encourage those against the order and other Trump policies to take action.
“We can’t get burnt out or overwhelmed and distracted,” she wrote. “We need to stay focused and organized. Tell your friends who say ‘I’m just not political’ that that doesn’t cut it anymore. We need people alert and fighting for each other’s rights.”Remember when this lady stated that if Trump won the election she’d move out of the United States? Don’t you wish she’d kept her word?
It’s ironic Schumer mentioned how important it is for Americans to be fighting for each other’s rights because that’s precisely what we’ve all been doing for the last eight years as Obama slowly, but surely, stripped away liberties one at a time, starting with pushing Obamacare.
If she really cared about protecting the rights of citizens, she’d be all about the repeal of the Affordable Care Act and would apply herself to defending the same free market capitalism that’s allowed her to make a career playing pretend.
Unfortunately, Schumer — uh, Amy — is just another typical Hollywood leftist looking to use politics to stay relevant in the public eye.
