While people haven’t exactly had kind things to say about Donald Trump as of late, is it possible Amy Schumer took things too far? The Wrap reveals 200 people walked out on Amy Schumer’s show in Tampa, Florida on Sunday after she took a Donald Trump joke way too far.
The infuriation over the jokes Amy Schumer made about Donald Trump during her routine in Tampa on Sunday, however, did not stop there. Many people took to social media to express how they felt about what Schumer said during her comedy routine.
@amyschumer Keep politics to yourself. Tampa show tonight disappointment. Criticize Trump with your vulgarity. Hypocrite.— Lesa Martino (@LesaLesa1234) October 17, 2016
Wow, this is shocking...— Elizabeth 3X™ (@MissLizzyNJ) October 18, 2016
That 200 people actually paid to see Amy Schumer. https://t.co/2Rsm71L6J9
Not everyone was angry about Amy Schumer using her show in Tampa to attack Donald Trump. In fact, some people took to Twitter to praise Schumer for telling the truth.
One Twitter user was even confused as to how someone could like Amy Schumer while doubling as a supporter of Donald Trump.
I'm trying to imagine the type of person who goes to an Amy Schumer show but really loves Donald Trump https://t.co/FU33l58QMw— Woketastic Voyage (@jrireland1) October 17, 2016
Curious as to what exactly it was that Amy Schumer said about Donald Trump that resulted in 200 people booing before getting up and leaving her show in Tampa? You can watch the entire clip below. Keep in mind, the clip may not be safe for work as it does have a little adult language in it.

During Amy Schumer’s show in Tampa, she asked a supporter of Donald Trump to come up on stage with her. She wanted the Donald Trump supporter to explain to her why he was voting for Donald Trump. The supporter of Trump responded to Schumer by saying the main reason he was voting for Trump was because he didn’t want to vote for Hillary. He mentioned that the biggest issue in the United States as security and Trump was going to fix that. He did, however, circle back to saying he was just voting for Trump because he wasn’t going to vote for Hillary.
Amy asked the Donald Trump supporter if he was worried about how impulsive Trump was. Wasn’t this supporter worried that Donald Trump being such an impulsive person was going to get Americans in a lot of trouble one day?
It was when Amy Schumer referred to Donald Trump as an “orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster” that the crowd really got fired up and started booing at her.
Instead of ignoring the booing crowd, Amy acknowledged it by saying, “Of course, we’re in Florida, you’re going to boo.”
With the help of her security, Amy Schumer asked anyone in the audience that was booing her for her Donald Trump comments to leave.
Anyone who follows Amy Schumer knows she is not the biggest fan of Donald Trump. In fact, Amy made it clear that she would be one of the celebrities leaving the United States if Donald Trump were to become president. Anyone who follows Amy Schumer’s comedy also knows this is a comedian who has never been worried about who she offends with her routine. Is it possible it was actually the audience who overacted to her material?
Schumer also hasn’t been shy about calling Trump out on more than one occasion.
What do you think about the 200 people who walked out of Amy Schumer’s show in Tampa after she talked about Donald Trump? Do you think she should keep politics out of her material or do you think her audience should have been less sensitive? It is also worth questioning whether or not these 200 people walked out or were they thrown out as Amy Schumer clearly asked – and had security help her – remove anyone who was booing her for her jokes about Donald Trump.
