Dem Senator Deletes Social Media Post

June 17, 2024

Hello there! Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer, Democrat of New York, recently found himself in a bit of a roasting session. However, it wasn’t the type of roasting one might expect at a comedy show. This happened when Schumer made a Father’s Day post on social media, which was later deleted, and appeared seemingly innocent at first.

Schumer wrote, “Our family has lived in an apartment building for all our years, but my daughter and her wife just bought a house with a backyard and for the first time we’re having a barbecue with hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill! Father’s Day Heaven!”

He even shared a photo of himself adding cheese to a raw hamburger patty, with his reading glasses neatly placed next to him on a clean cutting board.

However, online users were quick to notice. Many pointed out that Schumer’s technique of cheeseburger preparation was unconventional, if not incorrect. The image of cheese on uncooked beef certainly led to a stir.

This unexpected grilling mishap brought to mind other politicians who shared BBQ photos on social media and later lost their elections. Notable examples include former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe and North Carolina Senate candidate Cal Cunningham.

Donald Trump Jr. made comments on the situation, saying, “I get that you’re playing to the masses but literally no one puts cheese on a raw beef patty. If you need help learning how to do basic grilling stuff let me know. Nice try relating though.”

Journalist Jordan Schachtel shared his thoughts, commenting, “Chuck Schumer has been a politician for his entire life and has never held a real job. He also apparently has never used a grill. How can this man possibly relate to any of his constituents? He may as well be from a different planet.”

The reactions varied from humorous to snarky. One user said, “Hard pass on the tapeworms there Wolfgang Puck…” while another quipped, “Chuck is making an E. coli with cheese.”

Even Sen. Mike Lee, Republican of Utah, joined in, announcing: “Things I trust more than a Schumer burger: Epstein’s prison guards. The CIA. Gas station sushi.”

So, keep this in mind next time you’re at the grill this summer: your burger-making technique might unexpectedly stir up a political conversation. Or, at the very least, ensure your cheese placement doesn’t become the talk of the internet.
