When Sen. Chuck Schumer visited a Manhattan restaurant, patrons got more than just dinner. They also received a scream-fest.
Schumer began yelling at a former Jimmy Carter official and his wife for voting for Trump. Joseph A. Califano Jr. was pretty shocked when the senator came over and started screaming that the POTUS is “a liar.”

Schumer was reportedly having dinner at the Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo with some friends when he spotted Califano having a quite dinner with his wife.
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!’ ”
This is shocking coming from a top Senate member. Incredibly uncalled for behavior. Tip of the day, avoid restaurants Schumer visits.
