Oh here’s a heartwarming story: the senior United States Senator from New York, as insufferable of a blowhard in a body filled to the brim with insufferable blowhards, was on a recent US Airways flight when the announcement came on for all passengers to turn off their cell phones.

Naturally, Schumer kept yapping into his, prompting a flight attendant to come over and force him to do so. As she walked away, Schumer uttered “bitch” under his breath just loud enough for other passengers to hear. Today, he issued an apology:

Spokesman Josh Vlasto tells Fox 5, “The senator made an off-the-cuff comment under his breath after the flight attendant walked away. He shouldn’t have made it, he regrets it and he has apologized for it.”

Politico also reports that Schumer wasn’t finished after the “bitch” comment:

But moments after the flight attendant had told Schumer to shut it off, the phone rang again.

“It’s Harry Reid calling,” the source quoted Schumer as saying. “I guess health care will have to wait until we land.”

Yes, it will have to wait ASSHOLE…Shut off your Goddamn phone! Cellphones weren’t around in the 60s and Medicare somehow got passed. Stop jabbering and do something for the love of God. You’re lucky Sully didn’t come back there and whip your ass.
