Amy Schumer really doesn’t like Donald Trump and she made that clear in her performance before a packed house in Tampa Bay on Sunday. But some of the people in attendance somehow did not already know that Schumer is both a Trump hater and known for speaking her mind.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, almost 200 attendees walked out of her show at the Amalie Arena in Tampa ecause of what Amy said about Trump.

Some of those who left Amy Schumer’s performance told the Times things like, “I don’t want to hear that. We wanted to have a good night without distractions with the politics, ” and “The show became political. I definitely didn’t come to hear this.”
So how dumb are these people anyway. Complaining about Amy Schumer being outrageous or provocative in one of her shows is like saying that you were surprised to see fights break out at a hockey game.
So maybe it was God’s way of punishing Amy for not celebrating the first night of the Sukkot holiday with her fellow Jews around the world.
Amy Schumer had the following to say to Vanity Fair about the incident, “I loved the crowd and my show in Tampa last night! I want to thank the 8400 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.”
So what did Amy Schumer say about Donald Trump that was so controversial anyway? In part: “You know what I love? A famous guy that will just take me furniture shopping and just straight up grab my p***y.”
At one point Amy asked a Trump supporter, ““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*cking trouble we can’t get out of?”
