Trump fans boo, walk out on Amy Schumer show in Tampa

TAMPA - About 200 people walked out of Amy Schumer's comedy show at the Amalie Arena in Tampa Sunday when she mocked Donald Trump as, among other things, an "orange, sexual-assaulting, fake- college-starting monster." (Read Jay Cridlin's review of the show).

Loud booing from a vocal, but small minority of the arena crowd started about halfway through the show, when Schumer's raunchy humor veered into more topical matters topics, including gun control and the presidential election. She has been a vocal advocate for stricter gun laws since a man opened fire during a showing of her movie Train Wreck last year, killing two young women, Mayci Breaux and Jillian Johnson, in Louisiana, and was an early Hillary Clinton supporter,

She made it clear she doesn't understand how people can support Trump. At one point, she asked for a Trump supporter - preferably one with sleeves, she told security personnel - to join her up on stage to explain their enthusiasm for Trump. One fellow did, but he said he was voting for Trump mainly because he doesn't trust Clinton. When some audience members booed, the actor/comedian invited them to leave and also asked security to remove anyone booing.

"I don't want to hear that. We wanted to have a good night without distractions with the politics," said Bryon Nfinger.

"It's a bit much," echoed his wife, Chrissy Nfinger.

They both said everybody has a right to their opinion but thought Schumer went on too long.

"The show became political. I definitely didn't come to hear this," said Ryan Atwood.

While alluding the allegations of sexual impropriety against Trump, Schumer asked anyone who has been a victim of sexual assault to stand, and dozens did. Schumer was sexually assaulted herself, she revealed in her recently published book, The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo.

I've become so culturally illiterate I don't even know who this woman is. Obviously she is a comedienne.

Sounds like a few sheeple might be snapping out of their coma...

All you need to know is that she's Charles "Chucky Cheese" Schumer's cousin

Schumer is proof Hilliary has the pig vote.

Why is it that the female "comedians" today are so raunchy? I think back to Phyllis Diller, Carol Burnett, Rita Rudner, and the incomparable Gracie Allen, women who were truly funny without being foul mouthed like so many of today's crop are. I realize there is a general decline of civility these days but women like Schumer, Handler, Sarah Silverman and others represent more than a decline, more like a total collapse.

Btw, I included only women who do stand up, not comedic actresses like Lucille Ball and Tina Fey.
