Amy Schumer Defends Chuck Schumer: 'He Cannot Act, Trust Me'

Comedian and actress Amy Schumer is coming to the defense of relative after President Donald Trump accused the Democratic leader of crying "fake tears" while speaking about the recent refugee and immigration ban.

"This is what he was thinking about at 6:21 am," Schumer says of Trump's tweet that the minority leader was crying "fake tears."

"This was his tweet after his first soldier died. Also 8 Yemeni women and 7 children died and Trump called the raid 'successful'. I know Chuck Schumer and HE CANNOT act, trust me."

"He can barely smile on cue. He can't help but be transparent and genuine. He was hurt for those people and all the people facing such unconstitutional injustice," she explains. "Trump is about to bombard us with so many awful decisions. His Supreme Court pick will be terrifying and he will try and stop same sex adoption and all our other nightmares."

Schumer then says Americans must "wake up" against Trump's policies.

"We can't get burnt out or overwhelmed and distracted. We need to stay focused and organized. Tell your friends who say 'I'm just not political' that doesn't cut it anymore. We need people alert and fighting for each other's rights."

"Tell your sheltered friends to wake up and help. If you live somewhere where you've never even met a Muslim person and it feels like this doesn't really affect you. It does. A Muslim ban is so unconstitutional and cruel. They are good, hard working people and a refugee from the countries he isn't letting people in from have never committed any acts of terrorism on US soil. Never."

"We need to fight this now and together. Call congress. Call the senate. We need to wake up and rise up together. People need our help."
