This weekend, hundreds of people walked out of Amy Schumer's live show in Tampa, Florida after she dared to talk about politics during her set and called Donald Trump an "orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster." Will he ever recover from her not nice words?!? Schumer clearly knew she had crossed a line, and decided to read an open letter to the Tampa crowd during her show at MSG last night. The not-at-all sarcastic missive made her feelings about the walkout and the election crystal clear.
If you need any example of the lack of common sense among Trump voters, note that 200 of them assumed @amyschumer shared their views.

"Tampa, I am so sorry. I shouldn’t have said that he was an orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster,” she told the audience. "Shouldn’t have said that. I will never again say that he is an orange, sexually assaulting, fake-college-starting monster. Never again." Watch the whole speech below.
She started the letter, "Dearest Tampa: I’m sorry you didn’t want me, a comedian who talks about what she believes in, to mention the biggest thing going on in our country right now,” she read. “How could I think it was OK to spend five minutes having a peaceful conversation with someone with different views? After the show, I want you to know that I will go straight to a rehab facility that will teach me how to make all people happy — both the rich, entitled, white people who are gonna vote for him and the very poor people who’ve been tricked into it." Bet Joe Walsh appreciated that.

She concluded her letter, "I look forward to putting this all behind us in a couple weeks when Hillary Clinton is our motherfucking president!"
Hey, guess who else was at the Schumer show last night: Madonna....performing jokes?

Although she's out on tour, Schumer has been cramming in as much voter registration and Hillary-stumping as possible. That includes an appearance in pro-Hillary group Humanity for Hillary's video in which sexual assault survivors condemn Trump.
