Amy Schumer made a Donald Trump joke in Florida, and some people weren’t happy about it. Grace Baldridge, Michael Shure, and Brett Erlich, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“Amy Schumer enraged Donald Trump supporters during a comedy show in Florida Sunday night after she referred to the Republican candidate as an “orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster.” Booing started about halfway though the show from a reported “vocal, but small minority” of attendees at Tampa’s Amalie Arena, when Schumer steered the topic into territory such as gun control and the upcoming presidential election. All told, about 200 people eventually walked out.

It’s unclear what the crowd was expecting, as Schumer has been an ardent Hillary Clinton supporter as well as a vocal advocate for gun control — a cause she has publicly championed and even featured on her Comedy Central show. It seemed to be the slamming of Trump, however, that the crowd took the most umbrage with.

She made it clear she doesn’t understand how people can support Trump. At one point, she asked for a Trump supporter – preferably one with sleeves, she told security personnel – to join her up on stage to explain their enthusiasm for Trump. One fellow did, but he said he was voting for Trump mainly because he doesn’t trust Clinton. When some audience members booed, the actor/comedian invited them to leave and also asked security to remove anyone booing.

“I don’t want to hear that. We wanted to have a good night without distractions with the politics,” said Bryon Nfinger. “It’s a bit much,” echoed his wife, Chrissy Nfinger. They both said everybody has a right to their opinion but thought Schumer went on too long. “The show became political. I definitely didn’t come to hear this,” said Ryan Atwood.”
