Amy Schumer blasted president Donald Trump after he said her distant cousin, New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, cried “fake tears” at a press conference over his immigration ban.

On Tuesday, the 35-year-old actress came to Schumer’s defense in a lengthy post on Instagram where she claimed her cousin “can not act” and was “genuine” when he attacked the president about his recent executive order that would temporarily prevent migration from seven Muslim-majority countries. (RELATED: TRAINWRECK — Tampa Crowd Eats Amy Schumer Alive For Going After Trump [VIDEO])

“This is what he was thinking about at 621am,” Schumer wrote in a post next to a screenshot of Trump’s tweet accusing Schumer of ‘fake tears.’ “This was his tweet after his first soldier died. Also 8 Yemeni women and 7 children died and trump called the raid ‘successful.'”

“Also I know chuck Schumer and HE CANNOT act trust me,” she added. “He can barely smile on cue. He can’t help but be transparent and genuine. He was hurt for those people and all the people facing such unconstitutional injustice.”

“Trump is about to bombard us with so many awful decisions,” she continued. “His Supreme Court pick will be terrifying and he will try and stop same sex adoption and all our other nightmares. We can’t get burnt out or overwhelmed and distracted.”

“We need to stay focused and organized,” she wrote. “Tell your friends who say ‘I’m just not political’ that that doesn’t cut it anymore. We need people alert and fighting for each other’s rights. Tell your sheltered friends to wake up and help.”

“If you live somewhere where you’ve never even met a Muslim person and it feels like this doesn’t really affect you,” she added. “It does. A Muslim ban is so unconstitutional and cruel. ”

“They are good, hard-working people and a refugee from the countries he isn’t letting people in from have never committed any acts of terrorism on US soil. Never. We need to fight this now and together. Call congress. Call the senate. We need to wake up and rise up together. People need our help.”
