Actress-comedian Amy Schumer, who helped boost turnout for Joe Biden and whose cousin is Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), is now pushing the Democrat-backed H.R.1 bill, claiming, “you hate democracy” if you don’t find the sweeping election measure “awesome.”
“The short version is that the For the People Act is awesome, unless you hate democracy. And I know that you don’t. You love democracy,” Schumer said in a video released by the nonprofit RepresentUs on Thursday.
The Trainwreck and star of Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer asked viewers to watch the video all the way to the end, promising that by the end of the video, she will show them her young son. “At the end of the video, I’m going to show you my son, my little baby. So that is bribery, and that is because of how important this issue is,” she says.
