Schumer Uses the B-Word

Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) "got busted" for referring to a female flight attendant as a "bitch" aboard a shuttle flight to Washington, D.C., the New York Daily News reports.

"Schumer was sitting next to protege Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, gabbing away on his phone, when a flight attendant told him to shut it down. Schumer argued, and lost. He then muttered his complaint about the flight attendant to Gillibrand."

Said Schumer's spokesman: "The senator made an off-the-cuff comment under his breath that he shouldn't have made, and he regrets it."
