The top Senate Democrat, Chuck Schumer (D-NY), caused a massive scene in Manhattan after screaming and yelling at supporter of President Donald J. Trump’s.
The shocking situation happened in the Upper East Side at a “swanky” restaurant, Sette Mezzo. He was there with friends and immediately started screaming after learning that Hillary Califano, the daughter of the founder and chairman of CBS, supported Trump in 2016.
He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former US secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner.
Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary — the daughter of William S. Paley, the founder and chairman of CBS — had voted for Trump, even though her husband, Joseph, is a well-known Democrat.
One witness said of the restaurant rant, “They are a highly respected couple, and Schumer made a scene, yelling, ‘She voted for Trump!’ The Califanos left the restaurant, but Schumer followed them outside.” On the sidewalk, Schumer carried on with his fantastical filibuster: “ ‘How could you vote for Trump? He’s a liar!’ He kept repeating, ‘He’s a liar!’ ”
Hilary’s response is priceless. Ouch!:
Hilary confirmed the confrontation, telling Page Six, “Sen. Schumer was really rude . . . He’s our senator, and I don’t really like him. Yes, I voted for Trump. Schumer joined us outside and he told me Trump was a liar. I should have told him that Hillary Clinton was a liar, but I was so surprised I didn’t say anything.”

Schumer’s spokesman tried to deny the heated argument, but other witnesses confirmed Hilary’s story.
Schumer is a hypocrite and has taken political donations from Trump in the past. Now, he’s leading the charge to filibuster and stop President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch, and continues to push false rumors about connections to Russia.
Apparently, he’s not used to finding Republicans in the Upper East Side and doesn’t have good managers. Democrats should be ashamed.
