Nearly 200 people walk out of Amy Schumer act following Trump criticism

Amy Schumer’s Donald Trump jokes weren’t a hit with everyone a Tampa, Florida., audience, as about 200 people out of a crowd of 10,000 walked out of her show Sunday when she lambasted the Republican presidential candidate as an “orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster.”

Schumer, who has been a huge proponent for gun control and an outspoken supporter of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, veered into political territory about halfway into her set, which is when audience members began to boo.

At one point, Schumer called a Trump supporter on stage and questioned his voting motivations.

Schumer asked,“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 [expletive] trouble we can’t get out of?”

Schumer also addressed Trump’s notorious 2005 hot mic moment with former “Access Hollywood” anchor Billy Bush.

“You know what I love? A famous guy that will just take me furniture shopping and just straight up grab my [expletive]," she said during one point in the show.

As the booing intensified, Schumer asked security to remove some of the hecklers and told others that if they didn’t like her material, they were free to leave.

The Infingers were one couple who could’ve done without the comedienne’s political commentary.

“I don’t want to hear that. We wanted to have a good night without distractions with the politics,” Byron Infinger told the Tampa Bay Times.

His wife, Chrisy Infinger added, “It’s a bit much.”

“The show became political. I definitely didn’t come to hear this,” audience member Ryan Atwood said.

  • A security officer who was shot trying to stop Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock at the Mandalay Bay hotel on Oct. 1 appeared in a pre-recorded interview on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Wednesday, following reports that he had gone missing. Jesus Campos told Ellen DeGeneres that he made his way up to the 32nd floor of the hotel as Paddock fired into a crowd of 2,000 concertgoers attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival. When he arrived at the floor, he saw that the doors to the stairwell were locked, which caused him to call the engineering team. >> Read more trending news “I’m walking down [the hallway] and I believe that’s what caught the shooter’s attention,” he said. “As I was walking down I heard rapid fire, and at first I took cover. I felt a burning sensation. I went to go lift my pant leg up, and I saw the blood. That’s when I called it in on my radio, that shots had been fired.” Paddock reportedly shot Campos through the door of his suite, where hotel engineer Stephen Schuck found him. Schuck also appeared on “Ellen” alongside Campos. “I saw Jesus, and I started to hear shooting. At the time I didn’t know it was shooting; I thought it was a jackhammer,” Schuck said. “That’s when Jesus, he leaned out, and he said, ‘Take cover! Take cover!’ Yelled at me, and within milliseconds, if he didn’t say that, I would’ve got hit.” Schuck said that Paddock also started shooting at him through the door and that he felt “pressure” as the bullets passed his head. RELATED: “RHOC” star’s stepdaughter copes with trauma after surviving the Las Vegas shooting DeGeneres applauded Campos for being a “hero” and saving so many lives. “I know that you have had so many people asking you to tell the story, and I know you have had so much reluctance, and you want this to be over,” DeGeneres said. “It’s helpful for people to understand what a hero you are, because you, being shot in the leg, saved so many people’s lives, and instead of you just getting out of there, you saved Stephen’s life and that woman’s life and who knows how many other people.” Campos stayed behind to help police piece together the incident instead of seeking treatment at the hospital. Now, Campos told the host that he is “doing better each day. Slowly but surely, just healing physically and mentally.” Both men politely declined DeGeneres’ usual gift of money, but the host couldn’t let these two heroes walk away empty-handed. Schuck was gifted Colts tickets and VIP treatment to meet the team by the NFL, while Campos was thanked with a gift of season tickets to the Oakland Raiders and a $25,000 donation to the victims of the shooting. Campos disappeared from the public eye just last week after suddenly canceling interviews on Fox News, CNN, ABC, CBS and NBC. The company that owns Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino said that Campos “wants to tell his story at a time and place of his choosing.” “He’s asked that everyone respect his request for privacy,” the company said in a statement. “We could not be more proud of Jesus.”
  • An off-duty Uber driver is accused of kidnapping a passenger in Pennsylvania. >> Watch the news report here The woman was standing at Seventh and Penn Avenue in downtown Pittsburgh on Saturday night, waiting for an Uber she had requested. A car pulled up with an Uber sticker on it so she got in, but not with the driver she was expecting. Police in West View say Soumana Dao picked her up even though he wasn't on-duty and wasn't her assigned Uber driver. >> Read more trending news  Dao started driving north on Interstate 279 toward his home on Center Avenue in West View, according to police, not toward hers in the South Hills. Police say he also started touching her inappropriately. A neighbor heard the woman in distress and stepped in to help her, according to police. A representative for Uber told WPXI that Dao is a driver but wasn't on a trip that night and has since been removed from the app. The ride-sharing company also advises paying attention to who is picking you up and what car they'll be in.
  • By any measure, it’s one of the toughest jobs a president can have -- writing to the family of a soldier killed in action. The issue of presidential condolences has come to the forefront in the past week as  President Donald Trump incorrectly claimed that his predecessor, former President Barack Obama, failed to write letters of condolence to the families of slain soldiers. While Trump has not backed down from the claim, he has found himself being accused of indifference by the family of an Army sergeant killed in Niger two weeks ago. According to the mother of La David Johnson, President Donald Trump showed “disrespect” to his loved ones by saying that the solider “knew what he signed up for” before he was killed in action. The president has denied saying that, while Rep. Frederica Wilson, (D-Florida), said she was in the car when the president spoke toJohnson’s widow as they went to the airport to receive Johnson’s body. Letters from Commanders-in-Chief to the families of those who are killed in war is not new.  Perhaps one of the most famous condolence letters sent by a president was a letter sent by President Abraham Lincoln to Lydia Bixby, a widow whose five sons served in the Civil War. While the letter has been often quoted, the facts of. Bixby’s story has been questioned. It’s believed that at least two of Bixby’s sons were captured during the war, one deserted and one was killed. Lincoln did not know that when the letter was written. Some believe it may not have even been written by Lincoln, but, nevertheless attributed to him. Here is that letter and a few others sent by presidents to grieving families. Lincoln’s letter to Lydia Bixby:Executive Mansion, Washington, Nov. 21, 1864Dear Madam,I have been shown in the files of the War Department a statement of the Adjutant-General of Massachusetts, that you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of battle.I feel how weak and fruitless must be any words of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering to you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save.I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours, to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of Freedom. Yours, very sincerely and respectfully,Abraham Lincoln Another letter from President Lincoln to the parents of a man killed in the Civil War:My dear Sir and Madam, In the untimely loss of your noble son, our affliction here, is scarcely less than your own.So much of promised usefulness to one's country, and of bright hopes for one's self and friends, have rarely been so suddenly dashed, as in his fall. In size, in years, and in youthful appearance, a boy only, his power to command men, was surpassingly great. This power, combined with a fine intellect, an indomitable energy, and a taste altogether military, constituted in him, as seemed to me, the best natural talent, in that department, I ever knew.And yet he was singularly modest and deferential in social intercourse.My acquaintance with him began less than two years ago; yet through the latter half of the intervening period, it was as intimate as the disparity of our ages, and my engrossing engagements, would permit.To me, he appeared to have no indulgences or pastimes; and I never heard him utter a profane, or intemperate word. What was conclusive of his good heart, he never forgot his parents. The honors he labored for so laudably, and, in the sad end, so gallantly gave his life, he meant for them, no less than for himself.In the hope that it may be no intrusion upon the sacredness of your sorrow, I have ventured to address you this tribute to the memory of my young friend, and your brave and early fallen child.May God give you that consolation which is beyond all earthly power. Sincerely your friend in a common affliction --A. Lincoln From President Lyndon Johnson to the parents of astronaut Gus Grissom:Men of your son's utter dedication to country and cause are rare. The loss of such a man is humanity's loss.On each of the happy occasions when I met with Gus, I was impressed by the strength of his spirit and his cool confidence in the success of our space program. He was a leader who shared his strength and faith with all who knew him. By his courage, skill and dedication, he has guaranteed future generations a knowledge of the universe that will enrich their lives on earth.Your sacrifice is beyond measure. But I hope you can take some comfort from your knowledge that your pride can be without limit. Mrs. Johnson and I mourn with you as we pray for God's blessing. Millions share our debt to you for giving Gus to man, and inspiration to mankind.Lyndon Johnson From President Richard Nixon to the parents of a young man killed in the Vietnam War:Dear Mr. and Mrs. Cummins:It is with great sorrow that I have learned of the death of your son, Specialist Five Richard L. Cummins.Of all the hardships of war, the cruelest are the losses of men such as your son. The only consolation I can offer is the profound respect of the nation he died to serve, and the humble recognition of a sacrifice no man can measure and no words can describe. Those who give their own lives to make the freedom of others possible live forever in honor.Mrs. Nixon joins me in extending our own sympathy and in expressing the sympathy of a saddened nation. You will be in our prayers and in our hearts.Sincerely,Richard NixonFrom Richard Nixon to Jacqueline Kennedy on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy:Dear Jackie,In this tragic hour, Pat and I want you to know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.While the hand of fate made Jack and me political opponents I always cherished the fact that we were personal friends from the time we came to the Congress together in 1947. That friendship evidenced itself in many ways including the invitation we received to attend your wedding.Nothing I could say now could add to the splendid tributes which have come from throughout the world to him.But I want you to know that the nation will also be forever grateful for your service as First Lady. You brought to the White House charm, beauty and elegance as the official hostess of America, and the mystique of the young in heart which was uniquely yours made an indelible impression on the American consciousness.If in the days ahead we could be helpful in any way we shall be honored to be at your command.Sincerely,Dick Nixon  Several weeks later, the former First Lady responded to Nixon’s letter. (Punctuation, phrasing, and spelling is as it was in Kennedy’s original handwritten letter.)Dear Mr. Vice President –I do thank you for your most thoughtful letter –You two young men – colleagues in Congress – adversaries in 1960 – and now look what has happened – Whoever thought such a hideous thing could happen in this country –I know how you must feel – so long on the path – so closely missing the greatest prize – and now for you, all the question comes up again – and you must commit all you and your family’s hopes and efforts again – Just one thing I would say to you –if it does not work out as you have hoped for so long – please be consoled by what you already have – your life and your family –We never value life enough when we have it – and I would not have had Jack live his life any other way – thought I know his death could have been prevented, and I will never cease to torture myself with that –But if you do not win – please think of all that you have – With my appreciation – and my regards to your family. I hope your daughters love Chapin School as much as I did – SincerelyJacqueline Kennedy From President George W. Bush to the brother of a man killed in combat:Dear Thad:Johnnie Yellock passed along the copy of your book, My Brother In Arms. It looks like a moving tribute to your brother, Senior Airman Mark Andrew Forester, USAF. I appreciate your thoughtfulness and kind inscription.I know you miss your brother dearly, and I wish there was something I could do to heal your broken heart. Mark's noble service in the United States Air Force helped preserve the security of our homeland and defend the liberties America holds dear. Our Nation will not forget Mark's selfless sacrifice and dedication in our efforts to make the world more peaceful and more free. We will forever honor his memory.Laura and I send our respect and appreciation. May God bless you and your family.Sincerely,George W. Bush From President Barack Obama:I was deeply saddened to learn of the loss of your son, Chief Petty Officer Nicholas H. Hull, USN, and it was a solemn honor to join in saluting him as he returned home to his final resting place. Our Nation will not forget his sacrifice and we can never repay our debt to your family.A simple letter cannot erase the pain of losing a child, but I hope you take solace in knowing that his brave service exceeded all measures of selflessness and devotion to this country. We pay tribute to him not only as a guardian of our liberty but also as the true embodiment of America’s spirit of service to a cause greater than ourselves.Michelle and I offer our heartfelt sympathy and pray that God’s grace gives you comfort as you grieve. In life, you son was a shining example of all that is the best in our land. In rest, may he find the peace we all seek.Sincerely,Barack Obama
  • The father of the 19-year-old man who is accused of killing 6-year-old Dayvid Pakko and leaving his body in a dumpster in Lynnwood, Washington, spoke from Texas on Tuesday. Randy Henckel said he is grieving the death of his grandson, Dayvid, and trying to make sense of the arrest of his son, Andrew Henckel, in connection with it. Andrew Henckel, who was visiting from Texas, is Dayvid's uncle. >> Read more trending news Randy Henckel described his son as a gentle giant who is more than 6 feet tall, weighs 200 pounds and has been diagnosed with autism. Randy Henckel said his son’s place on the autism spectrum leans toward Asperger’s syndrome. 'He's extremely mild,” Randy Henckel said. “He's introverted. He's everything aside from the Asperger's. He's been a perfect child.” He said his son, the only suspect in Dayvid's death, has never been in trouble with the law and probably has no understanding of the legal process. 'My viewpoint on this is (that) they probably did Mirandize him, but he wouldn’t have any context for that,' Randy Henckel said. A frantic search for Dayvid was launched Monday night after the 6-year-old, who was also described as having mild autism, disappeared while he was under Andrew Henckel’s care, police said. Teams of people fanned out near Dayid’s home, near Lynnwood. His body was found Tuesday morning in a dumpster just feet from where he lived. Andrew Henckel was taken into custody, questioned and later arrested.  Since his son’s arrest, Randy Henckel said he’s had only limited access to his son. >> Related: 19-year-old arrested after 6-year-old Washington boy found in dumpster “My daughter, Andrew's sister, out of Austin, Texas, is up there right now,” he said. “She's not allowed to see him, and she's physically there.” Randy Henckel believes his son can't fully understand what is happening and that his condition may make him more compliant and willing to answer questions. “I told the detective last night, while they were still searching for my grandson, that he was autistic. And they said, 'We get that and we'll handle him with special care,'” Randy Henckel said. “Special care does not include not letting family members talk to him, or explaining why he might want a lawyer there.' Randy Henckel admitted that he does not know what happened to his grandson, but he wants to make sure Andrew Henckel was not coerced into admitting anything that could put him in legal jeopardy. >> Related: Body of missing 6-year-old boy found in dumpster “As far as demeanor leading up to this event, whatever it was, there was absolutely zero indication that Andrew was capable of something like this,” he said. He also expressed deep concern over Andrew Henckel’s ability to process any of the rigorous questions and situations that come with a legal investigation. “He hasn't had any interactions with the law whatsoever, we'll put it that way,” he said. “So this process of bringing him in and interrogating him, with his autism, makes me question the validity of anything he said without legal counsel present or a family member present.” Randy Henckel said that his son may not even fully understand what a lawyer is, let alone understand his rights. “You know what they do. They asked him, ‘Do you waive your rights?' and he would have said, 'Yes, I'll talk to you,'” he said. Both he and his family have been trying to contact Andrew Henckel through the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, Randy Henckel said.
  • A day after seemingly endorsing a legislative effort in Congress to formally approve money for insurance companies that would pay for health insurance subsidies for certain consumers, President Donald Trump indicated on Wednesday that while he backed the idea of bipartisan negotiations related to the Obama health law, he did not support a deal on “Cost Sharing Reduction” payments, . “If something can happen that’s fine,” Mr. Trump told reporters at a White House photo op, as he made clear that he wants to stop insurance subsidy payments that go to health insurers. “I won’t do anything to enrich the insurance companies,” the President said. “They’ve been enriched by Obamacare like nothing anyone has ever seen before.” I am supportive of Lamar as a person & also of the process, but I can never support bailing out ins co's who have made a fortune w/ O'Care. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 18, 2017 Pres. Trump on subsidies deal: 'If something can happen, that's fine. But I won't do anything to enrich the insurance companies.' pic.twitter.com/iNPy5IwgAD — ABC News Politics (@ABCPolitics) October 18, 2017 The statements left lawmakers on Capitol Hill wondering whether Mr. Trump would help push the plan through the Congress, or if it would galvanize more conservative opponents, as in less than 24 hours, the President had gone from supportive, to mildly unimpressed, to seemingly opposed to the plan. “He called Murray-Alexander deal a very good solution,” said Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer. “Now this morning, he says he can’t support it.” “He keeps zigging and zagging,” Schumer complained in a frustrated, and almost exasperated tone on the floor of the Senate, as he urged the President to be consistent when it comes to legislation in Congress. “Our only hope is, maybe tomorrow, he’ll be for this again,” Schumer added. It would *appear* there is a lot of confusion over Trump and the White House's stance on Alexander-Murray bill. — Joseph (@JoePWilliams31) October 18, 2017 As the President pinballed back and forth on the Senate CSR payments deal, it wasn’t clear what the Congress might do on the matter, as conservative groups urged GOP leaders not to accept the plan, saying it only tweaks the Obama health law, and not in a good way. “This is a bailout for health insurance companies,” the group Freedom Works said in a morning news release. Health insurance experts were still debating the Senate plan, unsure of all of its impacts, especially since there was no final bill draft at this point – and no plan for any vote on it, either.
