Schumer made headlines during last year’s State of the Union address after clapping a bit early for Biden.
“Unlike the [$2 trillion] tax cut passed in the previous administration that benefited the top 1 percent of Americans,” Biden said of when speaking of his predecessor former President Donald Trump.
Schumer then began to clap before stopping himself.
Biden added, “The American rescue plan helped rescue people and left no one behind.”
