Some United states celebrities joked/threatened to leave the U.S. if Donald Trump became president.
The superstar singer has been Cher-ing all her feelings via Twitter this election season. She wins the award for the furthest declared destination if the real estate magnate prevails.
“If he were to be elected, I’m moving to Jupiter,” she tweeted last year.
- Amy Schumer
The comedienne may or may not have been joking when she said she’s bound for Spain should Hillary Clinton lose.
“My act will change because I’ll need to learn to speak Spanish because I will move to Spain, or somewhere,” she said. “It’s beyond my comprehension if Trump won. It’s too crazy.”
- Chelsea Handler
Like fellow funnywoman Schumer, the talk show host says she, too, has her eye on Spain.
But Handler’s gone one better: she said she’s already got a home ready.
“I did buy a house in another country just in case, so all of these people that threaten to leave the country and then don’t, I will leave the country,” she said in May on “Live With Kelly and Michael.”
- Barbra Streisand
The iconic singer may be headed down under. Streisand told “60 Minutes” in Australia that she was worried about the election results.
“I’m either coming to your country, if you’ll let me in, or Canada,” she said.
- Lena Dunham
The “Girls” star seemed pretty firm in her assertion at the Matrix Awards in April that she is Vancouver-bound should Trump win.
“I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will,” she said.
- Ne Yo
The singer said he’s planning to kick it with buddy (and Canadian) rapper Drake if Clinton loses.
“I’m moving to Canada straight away,” he told TMZ. “Me and Drake gonna be neighbors if Donald Trump becomes president.”
- Samuel L. Jackson
While promoting “The Hateful Eight,” Samuel L. Jackson told Jimmy Kimmel that in the wake of a Trump victory he would “move my black ass to South Africa.”
- Miley Cyrus
Trump’s Super Tuesday victory in the primaries left Miley Cyrus distraught. She hasn’t said where she’ll go, but promised on Instagram that “I am moving if this is my president! I don’t say things I don’t mean!”
- Jon Stewart
If Cher does get a SpaceX flight to another planet, she might have Jon Stewart as her window-seat buddy, as he joked to People Magazine that he “would consider getting in a rocket and going to another planet, because clearly this planet’s gone bonkers.”
- Al Sharpton
Al Sharpton said in February that he had “reserved his ticket” to leave if Trump won and that he would support anyone necessary to beat him.
