We know who Amy Schumer is voting for next month, but not everybody wants to know.
During the comedian’s Sunday stand-up show in Tampa, Florida, Tampa Bay Times reports an estimated 200 people walked out when she took down Donald Trump and even called a Trump voter on stage to explain why he was voting for the “orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster.”

Although it was a minority of the crowd, their booing was definitely something to take note of.
In a statement to Vanity Fair, Amy said:
“I want to thank the 8,400 people who stayed. We have always depended on comedians to make us laugh and tell the truth. I am proud to continue that tradition.”
Honestly, I get it. You can’t turn on the TV without hearing another despicable thing said or done by one of the presidential candidates, so when you pay big money for a comedy show, the last thing you want to hear is about politics.

Hey @amyschumer leave the political stuff out of your comedy shows. We came to laugh not talk politics. We can turn On CNN and NBC for that😊

It was a great show, she told people to leave if they didn't want to hear it. @amyschumer was awesome

Love @amyschumer so much more after show tonight. Embarrassed by "neighbors " who walked out over political ignorance

So there you have it, both sides of the fence.
Let’s just hope this country makes it to the election without turning on each other at this point.
