Amy Schumer is­sues sar­cas­tic apol­ogy over Trump com­ments

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - KICKOFF -

Amy Schumer has is­sued a sar­cas­tic apol­ogy days after some peo­ple walked out of a Tampa, Florida, show in which she crit­i­cized Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee Don­ald Trump.

The co­me­dian read a “Dear Tampa” let­ter dur­ing her show Tues­day night at Madi­son Square Gar­den in New York. She ques­tioned how she could think it was “OK to spend five min­utes hav­ing a peace­ful con­ver­sa­tion with some­one with dif­fer­ent views.” She also said she’s send­ing her­self “to a re­hab fa­cil­ity” that will teach her “how to make all peo­ple happy.”

A Tampa Bay Times re­porter who saw Schumer’s show Sun­day es­ti­mated about 200 peo­ple walked out after she crit­i­cized Trump and ques­tioned one of his sup­port­ers on stage. Schumer also dis­cussed her sup­port for Demo­cratic nom­i­nee Hil­lary Clin­ton.
