Chuck Schumer roasted over failed Father’s Day grill photo

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) was barbequed on Father’s Day when he posted a photo of himself grilling burgers and dogs — the beatdown was so bad that the Senate Majority Leader would eventually delete the post.

Interestingly, Schumer rocked a t-shirt to give off normal-guy vibes in recognizing the special day, while opting to call attention to his gay daughter’s marriage.

He wrote in a tweet, “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!

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the now-deleted post which gives you an indication of why the Democratic leader decided to scrap the post altogether, as seen on the social media platform X:
