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.”
