This 2016 election has been on for the record books. It seemed as if no one was happy with their choices. The battle for the nominations in parties was brutal for the American people. Even the Entertainers seemed to be weighing in with their opinions more this time around. Some to the point of threatening to move from the US.
From what I could see, the number of celebrities stating they were going to move ranged from 10 to 23 depending on what source you were looking at. Are they sticking to their word or are they backing down? Let’s take a look at a few!
1. Miley Cyrus
Lil Miss Miley made waves via Twitter with her video reaction of the election results. She is the 23 y/o daughter of Country Artist Billy Ray Cyrus and is an actress/singer herself. She announced back in March that she would leave the country should Trump be elected. Of course this is the same little girl who grew popular amongst the teeny boppers with the Disney Sitcom Hannah Montana turned “Bad Girl” with her 2013 VMA live performance. After the election she took to Twitter on November 9th after the election in a quite emotional response! She is no longer moving and states, “’You can’t always get what you want.’ And happy hippies, we adjust and we accept everyone for who they are,” she said in the video. “And so Donald Trump, I accept you. And this hurts to say, but I even accept you as the president of the United States, and that’s fine … because I think now I want to be hopeful.”.
Kim Kardashian is most noted for being TV Reality Star and a leaked Sex Tape. Her husband Kanye West is considered to be a Rapper, Music Producer, Song Writer, and Singer. Both have been in the news over their marriage woes that have been highly publicized in the media. The interesting thing with this couple is that the crying and whining seems to be coming more from Kanye than his socialite wife. Kanye’s complaint is supposedly over racism (go figure) and he says he doesn’t want his daughter facing the same racist issues. Kim Kardashian’s major beef seems to be more about her disappointment with Caitlyn/ Bruce Jenner’s position on supporting Donald Trump during the election.
Whether they actually will move is a toss-up! Somehow I don’t see them following through with their threat to move either, considering they just recently started renovating a 20-million-dollar Bel Air home in Hidden Hills, California.
3. Whoopi Goldberg
Whoopi Goldberg is most noted today for her Co Host part in the Liberal majority show ‘The View’. She has been listed by almost every website following the celebrities who have vowed to move to Canada. Whoopi has actually backed out of her move. She made a public statement on The View stating she was not going anywhere as this was her country. She even went as far as stating she has been here since the 1700’s. How that’s possible, you tell me considering she was born November 13, 1955 she’s only 61 y/o!
Cher has been an outspoken singer/actress in Hollywood for a while now. She was all over the media when her activist/writer daughter Chastity/Chaz Bono underwent gender re-assignment back in 2009. She was very vocal about her support for Hillary and her dislike for Trump on her Twitter Page. She stated last year in a Tweet that she would move to Jupiter if Trump was elected. How crazy is that? Maybe she meant one of the US Towns like California, or Florida, North Carolina! Those sound a bit more plausible for her, so I take it she won’t be leaving the US anytime soon!
5. Al Sharpton
Al Sharpton the so-called Pastor, FBI Informant, Poverty Pimp , Race Baiter, and Tax Evader has also made statements of leaving the US should Trump should be the nominee. He stated “If Donald Trump is the nominee … I’m also reserving my ticket to get out of here if he wins. Only because he’d probably have me deported anyhow,” at a Center for American Progress Action Fund event. Unfortunately, like most of the things he states, it was an empty threat! He has now changed his tune and told TMZ in a video interview “I mean, all of us said that. No, that was said in jest. We’re not going anywhere. Clearly, it was said in jest. If that’s the comfort they got, they better get ready for an uncomfortable ride.”
These are just 5 of the many celebrities that made public claims to leave the US. To tell you the truth, I would have rather they stuck to their word and left. After all, they are only promoting mediocrity in this country, and that is getting us nowhere fast! Our country is starting to look like the 2006 Cult Classic ‘Idiocracy’ where everyone is so dumbed down, that someone of below average intelligence could be the smartest person left on earth! Is this really what our society is being reduced too? Threatening to leave the county because their candidate lost?!? Conservatives had to put up with 8 years of Obama! Did we pitch kiddie tantrums and threaten to leave the country?!? It sounds to me like these celebrities just wanted to pitch a fit and bring more attention to themselves, and the sad thing is…. Their sheep will continue to by their books, music, and hang on to every word they say!
That’s just my opinion!
