Reverse Sticker-Shock

Amy Schumer: 'I will leave the country if Donald Trump is elected President':
Amy Schumer has said she will leave the country if Donald Trump is elected US President. The actress and comedian is currently in the UK as part of a tour. "My act will change because I'll need to learn to speak Spanish because I will move to Spain, or somewhere. It's beyond my comprehension if Trump won. It's too crazy," she said.
As of this moment Trump has MY vote.   If it saves just one child ....

When GW Bush was running for president,  HUGE Hollywood Stars (Baldwin, Streissand) made the same promise.   Bush was elected, and Baldwin DIDN'T LEAVE THE COUNTRY!   That was such a huge disappointment to me.

I wonder what in the make-believe world of Hollywood Celebrities makes them so arrogant that they believe 'real people' really care what they say, think, or do.

Academy Award-winning actress Susan Sarandon says "anywhere but here" if Republican John McCain wins November's election. She says she will "be checking out a move to Italy. Maybe Canada, I don't know. We're at an abyss."
However, celebrities in the past do not have a stellar track record of making good on threats to flee if their candidate loses. Numerous stars vowed to pack up if George W. Bush won the 2000 election, including Barbara Streisand, Martin Sheen, Alec Baldwin and even Sarandon's long-time boyfriend Tim Robbins.
All still currently reside here in the U.S.

I can't think of her name, but didn't that skinny blonde actress move to England when W Bush was elected in 2000? She is still in London livening up their lives.

Did I mean Gwyneth Paltrow?

Reportedly, Ruth Bader Ginsberg (yes, THAT Ruth Bader Ginsberg) is threatening to leave the U.S. if Trump wins.

That's a solid in Trump's favor.

Can she still be a SCOTUS justice if she doesn't reside in the country?
