Chuck Schumer verbally assaults woman at a restaurant for voting for Donald Trump
It is no secret that Donald Trump has gotten under the skin of Chuck Schumer, so much so in fact that it is now being reported here that the Democratic Senator from New York and Minority Leader verbally assaulted a woman in a restaurant after learning she had the audacity to vote for Donald Trump.
Here is more:
Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., caused a scene at a Manhattan restaurant when he began yelling at a wealthy and well-connected Donald Trump supporter that the POTUS is “a liar.”
Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses.
He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner.
Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary — the daughter of William S. Paley, the founder and chairman of CBS — had voted for Trump, even though her husband, Joseph, is a well-known Democrat.
And he followed her outside after he drove them out of the restaurant:
One witness said of the restaurant rant, “They are a highly respected couple, and Schumer made a scene, yelling, ‘She voted for Trump!’ The Califanos left the restaurant, but Schumer followed them outside.” On the sidewalk, Schumer carried on with his fantastical filibuster: “ ‘How could you vote for Trump? He’s a liar!’ He kept repeating, ‘He’s a liar!’ ”
Hilary confirmed the confrontation, telling Page Six, “Sen. Schumer was really rude . . . He’s our senator, and I don’t really like him. Yes, I voted for Trump. Schumer joined us outside and he told me Trump was a liar. I should have told him that Hillary Clinton was a liar, but I was so surprised I didn’t say anything.”
This woman’s only “crime” was a difference of opinion and she was verbally assaulted by the leader of the Democratic party for it.
Some Democrats have questioned Donald Trump’s mental fitness to be President, they have said he needs to take a psychiatric exam because he is unstable and could be deranged or insane because he cannot handle it when people do not agree with him. Should not these same Democrats now be wondering the same about Chuck Schumer? Just saying…
