Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has been under the spotlight ever since he announced his intentions to run for president last year and whether you are an avid fan of his, someone who hates his guts or a “moderate” who doesn’t have any opinions on him or just doesn’t care, you have to admit, its been quite an interesting and entertaining ride. He has come so far in the polls, has won so many states and is leading in so many others that it is almost certain that he will be winning the GOP nomination. Well as is common in almost every presidential election, a lot of people have vowed and promised to leave the United States if he becomes president, some of them are Celebrities.
Vowing to leave the country if someone gets elected is nothing new, of course, back in 2008, The Ku Klux klan vowed that they would pack their bags and leave if a black man (Barack Obama) ever got elected as president of the country.
He did get elected.
They never left.
I’ve decided to make a collection of all the celebrities that have promised to leave the country if Trump gets elected, I’ll be updating the list as more say they will. Trust me, there will be more.
1. Rev Al Sharpton:
Rev. Al Sharpton revealed that he is willing to leave the United States if Trump is elected president. Right now, he is giving his support to virtually anyone but Trump, yet he has been very complimentary of Marco Rubio in hopes he wins the Republican nomination, according to The Washington Examiner.
“If Donald Trump is the nominee, I’m open to support anyone [else], while I’m also reserving my ticket to get out of here if he wins, only because he’d probably have me deported anyway.”
The Inquisitr reports him saying.
2. Raven Symone:
The “The view” TV show host is another person who has promised to leave the country if Trump is elected, and she plans on moving to Canada.
“I already have my ticket. I literally bought my ticket, I swear.”
She is reported saying. I am forced to believe she is serious.
3. John Stewart:
According to The Inquisitr, Jon Stewart, former host of the Daily Show, was one of the the first celebrities to throw his name out there. He had been asked if he’d considered returning to his old desk if Trump were to become president, but he shot that down in an instant and said that wasn’t happening.
Not only is Stewart prepared to leave the United States, but he’s intent on actually departing Earth if Trump gets into office. Stewart said that he would get in a rocket and think about going to another planet because this planet “has gone bonkers.” Yes, he said it in a joking fashion and took it to another level, but not all celebrities and comedians are as lighthearted about it.
4. Whoopi Goldberg:
Perhaps Whoopi was the most emotional of everyone in this list, as she believes that the country electing him means its time for her to move out.
“I’ve always been an American, and this has always been my country, and we’ve always been able to have discussions. And suddenly now it’s turning into, you know, ‘not them, not them.’ And you know, we have a lot of friends whose parents saw this already. They don’t want to relive this. They don’t want to relive this. So I need all the candidates to get it together. Get back to American values.”
She is reported saying.
5. Rosie O’Donnell:
According to The Political Insider, The feud between her and Donald Trump actually started in 2006, when Rosie went on a rampage While co-hosting “The View”, she called Trump “Not a self-made man” but a “snake-oil salesman on Little House On The Prairie” and then insulted his marriages with, “He left the first wife — had an affair, had kids both times.”
Its perhaps no surprise that she’ll leave if he gets elected
We would be more surprised if she stayed.
6. Samuel L. Jackson:
The high grossing African American movie star is another celebrity who has promised to leave the country should The Trump get elected.
During a comedy sketch on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the actor threatened to move to South Africa if Republican front-runner Donald Trump is elected president.
“IF THAT MOTHERF*CKER BECOMES PRESIDENT I WILL MOVE MY BLACK ASS TO SOUTH AFRICA”
7. Miley Cyrus:
Miley Cyrus is the latest celebrity to come out against Donald trump. In a post on her Instagram account, the singer who could be seen crying said :
“Yes. That is a tear rolling down my cheek dripping off the end of my nose…..This makes me so unbelievable scared and sad…. Not only for our country but for animals that I love more than anything in this world…. & YOU DT ARE NOT GOD NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU THINK YOU ARE!!! (& if he doesn’t think he is “God” he thinks he is the f**king chosen one or some sh*t! We’re all just f**king jam between his rich ass toes!
