Senator Chuck Schumer Watches Beyonce At President Barack Obama's Inauguration

Beyonce Has Chuck Schumer’s Support: Lip-Sync Gate Who?

With just five days left until Beyonce descends onto the Super Bowl stage, Lip-Sync Gate continues to rage.

Last Monday, the singer’s rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” kicked off a debate that touched on everything from the artifice of politics to the state of modern entertainment.

Unsurprisingly, the New York Post stoked the fires further yesterday when they suggested New York democratic senator Chuck Schumer was expecting some sort of kowtow from Beyonce.

Door-stepped by a Post reporter at his regular press conference on Sunday, Schumer was asked if he had received an apology from the singer.

Responding simply that he hadn’t, the paper somehow morphed Schumer’s reply into a story implying that he was “testy” and that Beyonce’s “phony warbling had made [him] look like a fool.”

Obviously the suggestion is Beyonce is now persona non grata at the White House, and that would quite a scoop.

Except it isn’t true.
