It looks like Floridians don’t like anyone talking about their precious Donald Trump! About 200 people walked out of comedian Amy Schumer‘s Tampa show after she joked that Trumpy was a “orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster.” Apparently, the people of Florida didn’t take to kindly to this hilarious (and factual) quip. Schumer’s joke was met with loud booing which got even worse when she tried to discuss much needed gun-control and this disaster of a Presidental Election.
Schumer, who is no stranger to heckling, took things in stride. She even asked a Trump supporter to join her on stage to explain his support for the billionaire. According to the Tamba Bay Times she asked, “Do you get worried at all with how impulsive he is, that he gets so fired up from ‘Saturday Night Live’ doing a skit on him … do you worry he’ll be impulsive and get us in a lot of f—ing trouble we can’t get out of?”

Booing erupted again and it got so bad that Schumer had to ask those who would not quiet down to be escorted out by security. In a statement to The Wrap Schumer said, “I loved the crowd and my show in Tampa last night! I want to thank the 8,400 people who stayed. We had a great time! We have always depended on comedians to make us laugh and tell the truth. I am proud to continue that tradition.”
A sexual assault survivor herself, Amy Schumer has a ton more patience than I would have had when dealing with rowdy Trump supporters. In the past few weeks, approximately ten women have come forward accusing the Republican Presidental Candidate of sexual assault. As one of Trump’s latest accusers told MSNBC, “He can’t claim [they’re] all liars.”
Is the election over yet?!!!
