Her phony warbling made Chuck Schumer look like a fool — but she hasn’t apologized to him for it.
The New York senator angrily admitted yesterday that the pop queen has not called him to say sorry after she turned last week’s inaugural bash into an unexpected Milli Vanilli concert by lip-syncing “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
“I have not heard from her before, during or after,” a testy Schumer told The New York Post after he was asked if Beyoncé had called him to give a musical mea culpa. “She did not talk to me at all. I didn’t say any words to her, period.”
It was clear the senator did not want to talk about the debacle at President Obama’s inauguration, which he organized and hosted.
When cornered at his regular Sunday press conference, Schumer snipped that he had no idea at the time that Beyoncé was lip-syncing.
“I couldn’t tell,” he said, “I only saw her from the back.”
