It’s not uncommon for people to joke/threaten about leaving the U.S. if the wrong person becomes president. But Donald Trump has Hollywood in such a froth that loads of celebrities are now talking about pulling up stakes. Here’s a small collection of them, ranging from silly jokes to serious plans.
Lena Dunham has been one of the most active celebrity Clinton supporters out there, but she says she’ll move to Canada if Trump wins: “”I know a lovely place in Vancouver, and I can get my work done from there.”
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!
Cher has a history of feuding with Trump even before he announced his candidacy and has been often asked about what she thinks about his attempts to become President. Cher tweeted that if he wins she will “move to Jupiter.”
Even before Trump officially got nominated, she promised on The View that she would leave for Canada if any Republican got elected: “I literally bought my ticket, I swear.”
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.
“House of Cards” star Neve Campbell is a natural-born Canadian citizen, so for her moving to another country is easy, and she’s said she’s ready to do it.
Barbara Streisand has been hitting the campaign trail hard for Hillary, but she too is ready to abandon ship if her campaign fails. She said she would decide between moving to Australia and Canada if Trump takes office.
But some threats to leave America are a bit more tongue-in-cheek. Take Spike Lee, who vowed to respond to a Trump victory by “moving back to the republic of Brooklyn.”
