Senator Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., caused a stir Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, blasting a wealthy and prominent Trump supporter for voting for Trump.
Joseph A. Califano Jr., a well-known democrat and the former U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare, was quietly eating dinner with his wife Hilary when Schumer encountered the couple and made a spectacle of himself, repeatedly saying to Hillary Califano who voted for Trump that Trump is a liar.
Schumer went so far as to follow the couple outside the restaurant, carrying on like only a democrat can, saying, “How could you vote for Trump!? He’s a liar! He’s a liar!”
“Senator Schumer was really rude. He’s our senator and I don’t really like him. Yes, I voted for Trump,” Mrs. Califano said. “Schumer joined us outside and he told me Trump was a liar. I should have told him that Hillary Clinton was a liar, but I was so surprised I didn’t say anything.”
Hilary Califano is the daughter of William S. Paley, the founder and chairman of CBS.
