Amy Schumer Defends Chuck Schumer Against Donald Trump – Amy Schumer’s Statement on Immigration Ban

Senator Chuck Schumer is one of the growing number of politicians to speak out against Donald Trump’s immigration ban, and he was visibly emotional while delivering statements on the topic. Trump’s reaction? To accuse him of fake crying, something the senator’s distant cousin Amy Schumer was not impressed with.

This is what he was thinking about at 621am. This was his tweet after his first soldier died. Also 8 Yemeni women and 7 children died and trump called the raid “successful” 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. 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. We can’t get burnt out or overwhelmed and distracted. 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. Tell your sheltered friends to wake up and help. If you live somewhere where youve 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. They are good, hard working people and a refugee from the countries he isn’t letting people in from have never committed any acts of terrorism on US soil. Never. 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.
