A YouTube video posted by YouTube user MommaPayne shows Schumer getting booed by members of the audience after making comments about Trump. It was estimated that about 200 people walked out of the show as she continued to mock Trump.
Residents were curious if any remarks that she made about Tampa in her book would surface during the show. According to another Tampa Bay Times article, Schumer was noted for calling Tampa "horrendous," and added that "I'm not scared about writing that, because I know for a fact that no one who lives there has ever read a book.
