Hecklers interrupted Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer’s presser in Midtown Manhattan Tuesday afternoon.
Schumer called for Americans who stormed the US Capitol last week to be placed on the no-fly list.
“We cannot allow these same insurrectionists to get on a plane and cause more violence and more damage,” Schumer said.
A protester, who described him/herself as a “transsexual gypsy” confronted Schumer and called him a “racist anti-Semite.”
“Remember this, Adolf Hitler was a Socialist and that’s exactly who you follow!” the protester said to Schumer. “You’re nothing but a coward!”

According to reporters, another protester shouted at Schumer, “Traitor! Treason! You’re going down, buddy! Traitor! To this nation! Everyone knows!”
