Amy Schumer rips ‘cruel’ Trump over anti-Muslim travel ban: He’s bombarding us with awful decisions

Published

on

Comedian Amy Schumer on Tuesday bashed President Donald Trump on Instagram, urging Americans to fight against the president’s “unconstitutional and cruel” actions.

Schumer posted an image of Trump’s tweet from early Tuesday morning, in which he accused her relative Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) of pretending to cry about refugees being detained at airports.

“This is what he was thinking about at 621am,” she said of the tweet.

“Also I know Chuck Schumer and HE CANNOT act trust me. 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,” she continued.

“Trump is about to bombard us with so many awful decisions. His Supreme Court pick will be terrifying and he will try and stop same sex adoption and all our other nightmares.”

Schumer warned Trump’s foes not to get “burnt out” by news of the president’s actions in office. She also urged everyone to reach out to their non-political friends.

“Tell your sheltered friends to wake up and help. If you live somewhere where you’ve never even met a Muslim person and it feels like this doesn’t really affect you. It does. A Muslim ban is so unconstitutional and cruel,” she wrote.

She concluded her post by urging Americans who are opposed to Trump to take action.

“We need to fight this now and together. Call congress. Call the senate. We need to wake up and rise up together. People need our help.”

Patrick Wilson, a political reporter for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, attended the event.

He reported that Democrats were so "noisy" that it was hard to hear the speakers, which include presidential candidates Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.

‘Everyone knows what to expect’ at Trump’s Amway Center re-election kickoff

Published

on

Donald Trump considers himself a legendary salesman, but can he really sell America on giving him four more drama-filled years at the White House?

Tuesday, he'll make his big pitch.

The 2020 reelection kickoff rally is being held in Orlando, Florida and campaign operations chief Michael Glassner says the "historic" event "has already generated tens of thousands of ticketing requests."

There's little mystery about how the night will go down.

Expect Trump, the self-promoting hero of his ghost-written book "The Art of the Deal," to claim the US economy is richer, the military stronger, and the country more respected than ever in history.

"And then there’s another $100,000 bond he would have to pay to get out of Lee County Jail because of a weapons charge."

Joshua Leff, 40, is being held in the Lee County Jail.
