HOLLYWOOD—The election is over and America decided on Donald Trump. A businessman and reality star is our new 45th President of the United States. Let’s see if some of our Hollywood actors and actresses are making arrangements with their travel agents to leave the country as they promised if Donald Trump won.
Actress and singer Barbra Streisand said, “I can’t believe it. I’m either coming to your country if you’ll let me in, or Canada,” the singer told 60 Minutes in an interview in August. Streisand has been a vocal supporter of Clinton’s candidacy, and appeared at a high-profile fundraiser for the candidate in New York City earlier this year. Singer Miley Cyrus said she would “move out da country” if Trump won.
Comedian and actress Amy Schumer of “Trainwreck” said Spain would be her destination of choice if Trump won the presidency. “My act will change because I will need to learn to speak Spanish,” said Schumer in an appearance on BBC’s Newsnight in September. “Because I will move to Spain or somewhere. It’s beyond my comprehension if Trump won. It’s just too crazy.”
Another female comedian Chelsea Handler said she had already made a contingency plan in the event of a Trump win. “I did buy a house in another country just in case, Handler said in an interview on ABC’s Live with Kelly and Michael back in May. “So all these people that threaten to leave the country and then they don’t- I actually will leave that country.”
Comedian George Lopez on Trump, “If he wins, he won’t have to worry about immigration. We’ll all go back,” the Latino comedian and TV star told TMZ shortly after Trump announced his candidacy in 2015.
Actress and singer Cher, also wrote on Twitter that she would be moving to Jupiter if Trump wins. The “Believe” singer has appeared with Hillary Clinton at campaign events this year. She also showed up last night at the Jacob Javitts center and left after campaign manager John Podesta spoke around 2:30 a.m. on November 9.
Veteran actor Samuel L. Jackson accused Trump of running a “hate”-filled campaign in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “I’m moving to South Africa,” Jackson told Jimmy Kimmel.
Whoopi Goldberg, comedian and The View co-host repeatedly trashed Trump on the ABC daytime talk show. “Listen, he can be whatever party he wants to be,” said Goldberg during an episode in January 2016. “What he can’t be is he can’t be the guy that says it’s your fault stuff isn’t working. That’s not the president I want. Find a way to make stuff work.”
“Maybe it’s time for me to move, you know. I can afford to go” she added.
Raven-Symone, the former View co-host and Disney Channel star is probably already on a flight out. During a February episode of the talk show, the actress said she would move to Canada, “if any Republican gets nominated.”
