Amy Schumer's latest show in Tampa, Florida, did not end well. Around 200 attendees walked out of the Amalie Arena when the comedian insulted Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump (video below).

Schumer, an avid Democratic presidential nominee Hilary Clinton supporter, called Trump an “orange, sexual-assaulting, fake-college-starting monster.”

She even brought an audience member to the stage, asking him why he supports Trump, according to Daily Mail.

He replied he supports Trump because he “can’t trust Hillary.”

The comedian then asks him,  "[And] why can you trust Trump?”

“I’m a RHINO – a republican in name only. And I haven’t voted for a republican since Reagan, but now I’ve totally flipped,” said the fan.

Schumer responds back with, “No, we’re not talking about why you don’t like Hillary. We’re talking about why you like Trump.”

“Ok, right now security for our country is probably the biggest thing we have and he’s going to protect us,” the fan told Schumer.

“With all of his experience signing ceasefires [sarcastically] ... Do you get worried at all with how impulsive he is, that he gets so fired up with Saturday Night Live doing a skit on him, and the stuff he's talking about with leaving NAFTA... Do you get worried he'll get us into a lot of f****** trouble we can't get out of?” Schumer asks.

The fan replies back, “Well I'm... I really can't support some of the stuff he says. I'm not really voting for Trump. I'm voting against Hillary.”

Schumer then dismissed him from the stage and ordered security to kick anyone out anyone who boos.

Schumer also talked about gun control and other political topics, prompting a vocal minority to boo her halfway through the show, reports Tampa Bay Times.

Attendee Bryon Infinger said, “I don’t want to hear that. We wanted to have a good night without distractions with the politics.”

“It’s a bit much,” agreed his wife, Chrissy.

The Infingers said everyone had a right to their own beliefs but thought Schumer’s performance was too over-the-top.

“The show became political. I definitely don’t come to hear this,” said Ryan Atwood.

At one point, Schumer asked those who had been victims of sexual assault to stand up, and dozens did.

In Schumer’s book, "The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo," she revealed having been sexually assaulted herself. She also criticizes Tampa as being a “horrendous city” in the book.

“I was on the road doing [a tour] and traveling between two horrendous cities: Fayetteville, North Carolina and Tampa, Florida. I'm not scared about writing that and making those people mad, because I know for a fact that no one who lives there has ever read a book. JKJKJKJKJK, but kind of not K,” an excerpt from the book reads.
