Senator Schumer calls Flight Attendant a "Bitch"

This story originated from a Republican aide on the airplane, but it is acknowledged by Schumer's staff that it is true.

a flight attendant then approached Schumer and told him the entire plane was waiting on him to shut down his phone.

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.

“The senator made an off-the-cuff comment under his breath that he shouldn’t have made, and he regrets it,” Schumer spokesman Brian Fallon told Shenanigans. . . .

Hmmm, link's not working.

Unsurprising to hear such a report from such a source.

Of course, there are flight attendants who fit the characterization...

Rules, regulations, and laws are for the unwashed minions... surely not for the elite Senators. It is way beyond time to clean the House and the Senate.

Oh, come on, Chuckie is just a little man letting off a little steam because he was reminded of how little he is.

This is the kind of thing very little people do.

Too bad she didn't hear it. She could have brought him a copy of American Rifleman with which to while his time during the flight.
