God forbid a liberal, let along a member of the Senate pay attention to a flight attendant and follow what’s required BY LAW! According to Fox News, Schumer muttered “bitch” at the female flight attendant after she had the audacity to ask him to turn his cell phone off before takeoff! How dare anyone ask Schmucky Schumer to do such a thing! According to Politico, the other Senator for New York who is hopefully toast in 2010 Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), was sitting next to Schumer jabbering away on her cell phone too before takeoff when an announcement indicated that it was time to turn off the phones.
Schumer asked if he could finish his conversation. When the flight attendant said “no,” Schumer ended his call but continued to argue his case.
He said he was entitled to keep his phone on until the cabin door was closed. The flight attendant said he was obliged to turn it off whenever a flight attendant asked.
“He argued with her about the rule,” the source said. “She said she doesn’t make the rules, she just follows them.”
When the flight attendant walked away, the witness says Schumer turned to Gillibrand and uttered the B-word.
