With the TSA now extending mask mandates at least through January 2022, getting back to normal is going ever so slowly, but Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) wants the public to know he’s the man. At least that is what he rapped to fans at a concert held in The Bronx this week. (He was mask-less, which is a no-no.)
“You got some bars, Chuck?” Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. asked Schumer on Monday while standing on the stage during the show that was part of a week-long concert series of free concerts named “It’s Time For Hip-Hop.”
“I got the bars, I got the plaque, I got the music, we got it all! We are the Bronx!,” Schumer said while rapping and holding a plaque.
The geriatric tune-smith also dropped this on the crowd:
“Killer Chuck is my name. No, I don’t have hip-hop fame. But I can bring recognition to you, the Wu-Tang Clan and hip-hop too.”
It hurt just typing that. Take a listen:
On Fox News’ “Gutfeld” Wednesday, Greg asked, “Is this the end of times, when Chuck Schumer is busting rhymes?”
Co-panelist Tyrus responded, “Here’s the thing. If you’re gonna do it, you gotta go full-regalia. You gotta go hard in the paint. If you’re gonna rap, do it right! But, in typical Democratic fashion, they took something that was cool and edgy, and turned it into porridge.”
Sorry to do this to you.

All attendees were required to show proof of vaccination to get the free tickets, but some of those in attendance at the hip-hip extravaganza may have been in violation of the law however, as there has been an influx of shipments containing fraudulent vaccination cards sent from, you guessed it, China.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection reports they have been intercepting counterfeit COVID vaccination cards every night at the port in Memphis, TN. This fiscal year to date, Memphis has made 121 seizures totaling 3,017 falsified vaccination cards. The shipments may be addressed to various places in the country and often the manifests describe the shipments as “Paper Greeting Cards/Use For-Greeting Card,” or they are “PAPER PAPER CARD,” but they are always from China.
The report states that there are no apparent attempts to conceal the fake documents. They contain blank spaces for a person’s name and vital statistics, but they are riddled with typos, unfinished words, as well as incorrect Spanish verbiage on the backside.
The FBI has warned the public that buying, selling, or using a counterfeit COVID-19 vaccination card is a crime and is punishable by up to five years in prison.
“These vaccinations are free and available everywhere,” said Michael Neipert, Area Port Director of Memphis. “If you do not wish to receive a vaccine, that is your decision. But don’t order a counterfeit, waste my officer’s time, break the law, and misrepresent yourself. CBP Officers at the Area Port of Memphis remain committed to stopping counterfeit smuggling and helping to protect our communities. But just know that when you order a fake vaxx card, you are using my officers time as they also seize fentanyl and methamphetamines.”
Also on the Fox News show, Gutfeld reported that a Chicago pharmacist was recently busted for selling counterfeit COVID vaccination cards on eBay.
“He’s facing 120 years in prison, but since he’s from Chicago, that makes him less likely to get murdered,” the host remarked, drawing laughter from the panel and crew.
Referring to the interception of the fake vaccination cards from China, Gutfeld said, “You could tell they were fake because the commies stamped them ‘Made in Taiwan.'”
