The political class in Washington, D.C. lives inside a bubble.

Most politicians have completely lost touch with everyday normal Americans.

And Chuck Schumer shared a photo of him grilling on Father’s Day that social media users made him instantly regret.

Americans from all across the country celebrated Father’s Day on Sunday.

Father’s Day was officially made a U.S. holiday in 1972 by President Richard Nixon.

Today, there are about 72 million fathers and 29 million grandfathers in the United States.

With almost 100 million Father’s Day cards sent each year, it’s the fifth-largest card-sending occasion in America.

According to the National Retail Federation, Father’s Day spending for 2024 was projected to reach $22.4 billion.

The necktie is the most popular of all Father’s Day gifts, with over 100 million sold each year.

On Sunday, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer shared a photo of himself grilling hotdogs and hamburgers in an attempt to connect with normal Americans.

“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,” Schumer wrote in his post. “Father’s Day Heaven.”

But Schumer deleted the photo within 24 hours after countless social media users pointed out one glaring problem with his grilling photo.

The photo showed Schumer standing in front of a grill full of hotdogs and hamburgers.

But one of the raw hamburgers already had a slice of cheese on it.

And social media users gave Schumer a hard time.

“Tell me you’ve never grilled before without telling me you’ve never grilled before,” Siraj Hashmi wrote in a post on X.

“Why do Dems have to make it so easy to make fun of them . . .” another person wrote.

“Only one of the burners is on, the burgers are still raw but the hotdogs are already cooked,” conservative Matt Walsh wrote. “And you put cheese on a raw patty. Three strikes. You will now be deported.”

Donald Trump Jr. even took a swipe at Schumer.

“I get that you’re playing to the masses but literally no one puts cheese on a raw beef patty,” he wrote. “If you need help learning how to do basic grilling stuff let me know. Nice try relating though. Fuc$&?g communists!!!”

Even though Schumer deleted the post, the account Libs of TikTok shared a screenshot of the embarrassing photo.

“Chuck Schumer just deleted this post where he got insanely ratioed for not knowing how to make a cheeseburger,” Libs of TikTok wrote. “Democrats try to be relatable without being super cringe challenge: IMPOSSIBLE.”
